When I ask clients what they are looking for in a house, one of the primary questions is "Pool or no pool?". Most people either really want one or really don't. There aren't too many in between.
But what happens when that pool you once wanted becomes more of a liability than an asset? That is what finally happened at the Player house. The cost to repair our leaking 25+ year old pool, pumps, filter, skimmers, etc. far exceeded the cost to fill it in. Repair estimates were over $15,000 and we had not even addressed the cracked and uneven decking.
