I have an Anthony pool that's probably twenty five years old and needs work. The bottom is stained pretty badly and I have two quotes to renovate the pool. One is to resurface with Pebble Tec for $14K, new tile is $4K, and new coping is $3700 with brick Bullnose coping or %5200 for Granite Bullnose coping. The second quote is $11K to resurface with Diamond Brite and $6K for tile and brick coping from US Pool Tile.
What should I know or ask about in deciding what to do? Also, I took off the concrete around the pool several years ago and now have stepping stones instead. The pool is irregularly shaped and I don't know how brick coping will look. Are there any good alternatives?
I don't know how to upload pictures but if someone explains that I will do it.
