Buying a house with a pool. Have some ??? PICS included
We are purchasing a house with this pool and had some questions. We are would very much appreciated some feedback on what we are getting into.
What we know about the pool is that it was built in 1998 and is a gunite pool. The pool pump is a Hayward sp2607x10 (do not know age) Raypak pool heater (appears to be original), retractable pool cover appears to be an Infinity 4000 automatic model. The pool appears to be built by Blue Haven pools, a sticker on the filter says this. I do not know the filter type or style, I am assuming a paper based particle filter not the sand type.
The house is located in Northern VA so pool season is from May to September. I assume I would just let the ambient temp and sun heat up the pool and refrain from heating it with the gas heater as I'm sure the gas bill would sky rocket.
I hear that every 10 years or so the plaster has to be redone? How does the equipment look? I know the heater looks pretty old and I am not sure if it even runs. Thanks again for any feedback.
Here are some pictures:
