We, and when I say "we", I mean, Mark, has been working for months re-doing our pool. He tore out all of the concrete decking, the coping (tiles around the top) and the tile inside and replaced it all. There is now new concrete all around, a new tiered walkway behind the back and new rock and slate tile inside. It was great fun for the kids to play in an empty pool for months, but as you can see, they were pretty happy about it getting filled with water again.
And, by the way, never use Blue Crest Pools, Belton, Texas, if you want your pool to last.
