First of all, Pablo and I painted the pool a couple years ago but the sun and chemicals took their toll. This year the pool was left dry from October til mid February when I found some great workers to do the repairs and paint. As you can see from the cement, there were a few cracks in the pool where water was seeping out. There were chips of cement broken off the sides that have now been repaired.
The rust colored pole you see here doesn't' have a top on it and it was full of water, oxidating the pole and rotting the pole from the inside. They fixed it and built a cement platform for it, as well as topping the pole so rain doesn't enter. The cement had to dry for several days.
