Potential New Home Owner With A Pool

Postby IMAXBB » Tue 23 Jan, 2024 20:09

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to the forum so bare with me. My wife and I have been searching for a home with a pool, preferably indoor (we're in Wisconsin). We looked at a house today but the pool was in bad condition. The house is not in the best shape either but has lots of potential. The home is built in 1965, I'm not sure if the pool is original to the home or an addition. The roof of the pool building was leaking while we were there.

I know it's only pictures but any thoughts would be appreciated. Is this pool salvageable? Would it be cheaper to rip it out and replace it than building brand new?

For some reason I can't add images so I'll try to post a reply with photos (Yes, I checked the how to post a picture topic, others had my issue as well).

Hi IMAXBB,

Did you figure out how to post the images yet?

Maybe try adding a link on the post to the images.
