Do they make a tool to remove stuck inground swimming pool ladders?
Inground pool prices vary widely depending on the size of the pool, the materials used, and many other factors. However, for your typical backyard pool, you should expect to p…ay somewhere in the range of $20,000-40,000. The big factors are really the size (height, width, and depth) and what you use to line the pool. Vinyl is the cheapest material, and gunite (concrete) and fiberglass are roughly the same. Fiberglass might be a little more expensive initially, but you usually make up the difference in lower maintenance costs. However, there are just so many variables in inground pool cost that it's hard to give a meaningful answer. The best advice is to call around to contractors in your area. Just make sure you know what you want first.
I have been in the pool industry for a long time, this is what you NEED to do to refinish your exisiting pool Step 1 - Clean Pool of debri, Step 2 - Pressure wash pool, r…emoving all flaked or loose paints, you may need to scrape it off as well. Step 3 - Clean your pool with a product call ArmorGuard Cleaner, This will etch and seal your pool, while turning the Calcium Hydroxide to a good Calcium Silicate. (a good bonding agent) Step 4 - If your pool has any back hydration, leaks etc. patch those areas with hydrolic contrete or Armorguard trowel mix.

A shovel! Naw, just kidding. The answer depends on a couple of factors. Most importantly, what are the soil conditions? Rocky soils require larger equipment and more time to …complete the excavation. On softer soils, you are not limited on the types of equipment used. The second factor is access. How will the equipment enter the yard? Are you limited by fence lines or existing slopes and grades? Or your landscape, are there big trees limiting the access. Today most companies excavate inground swimming pools with two different options. The first is a front loader, commonly referred to as a BobCat. These machines offer an affordable means to excavate your typical backyard swimming pool. Doing a search on "BobCat S130" will show you an example of this type of equipment. A BobCat is a smaller version of a bulldozer with a toothed bucket on the front of the machine. The buckets are slightly larger than the width of the machine. The most popular units require a six foot access. Having less than six feet of clearance requires removal of fences or landscapes. In rare occasions, this is not acceptable and a swimming pool excavation company will be limited to wheelbarrows, jackhammers and yes, shovels. The second option for the equipment used is an excavator. This piece of equipment has a smaller toothed shovel with a hydraulic arm attached. The advantage to using this piece of equipment is it's ability to dig a pool without the need to fill in a ramp. To explain, with a front loader, the excavator needs to dig a ramp into one end of the pool. This ramp is on the exterior of the swimming pool requiring back filling and additional gunite and steel for structural strength of the pool shell. The disadvantage to using an excavator, is the need to remove the dirt with a front loader to a dump truck. Unless, a dump truck can pull up to the excavation site. For most homeowners, this is not feasible, unless you live in the country. To see a picture of a mini excavator, search the term "Cat 303C". Lastly, there are times when the soil conditions are so poor in solid rock conditions, that the only way to excavate a pool is by drilling and blasting with explosives. A word of advice: A lot of times, a homeowner knows of a friend who has a backhoe. Thinking anyone can dig a swimming pool. While this is a logical solution, with most swimming pool excavation companies not only do they dig the swimming pool, they are also forming for the gunite and the bond beam. These excavation companies also take additional steps to ensure the finished dig is excavated as close to possible with the dimensions to the pool. This is called trimming which is usually done by hand. With an experienced swimming pool excavation company you will avoid overages of gunite to fill in voids and poorly excavated pools. Often times, these charges will exceed any cost savings of hiring your "friend with a backhoe."
There are two parts to a vinyl liner pool: the bottom and the walls. The walls are the first 3 1/2' down from the top, all the way around the pool. There are many different ty…pes of walls including galvanized steel, aluminum, fiberglass, polymer and concrete. The bottom, everything below the first 3 1/2' down, can be made from cement, a cement/vermiculite mix, a sand/vermiculite mix, a cement/sand/vermiculite mix, or just plain sand. What is used under the pool liner depends upon the preference of the pool builder and the specifications of the homeowner or contractor.
This depends on the state and city the swimming pool is to be constructed in. The cost of living in a certain area will be reflected to the cost of your pool. The contractor c…hoosen is also a factor. Do not ever buy on price alone. If you purchase a pool based on the cheapest, that is exactly what you will get a cheap front end project with alot of expense down the road. I recommend you get at least 3 bids. expect to spend $25k and up.
Answer It could be lime deposits. Try the toilet bowl cleaner Lime Away and see if that helps. Vinagar might do the trick too. Remove the ladder and soak it or brush th…e cleaner on and let it set a few hours. A: Alum. ladders will degrade quickly in water.
You can but be careful that there is not a great deal of ground water around the outside of the pool if you have one make sure the hydrostatic valve at the bottom of the… pool will allow water from below the pool to enter the pool as it is supposed too. if there is a great deal of ground water the danger is that your pool will float out of the ground.

20 x 40 It would more likely be closer to 15' X 30' with an averagedeep end at 8' and 3' to 3.5' in the shallow end. - giving you anaverage depth of about 5.5'.
I do recommend talking to your local electric motor repair guy, pumps and motors are what they do. Pool pumps are high volume low pressure pumps, and need to flow freely.
A pool is not "grounded" but it is "bonded". Bonding requirements vary greatly from city to township and county regulations. Some governments may make you com…ply with the National Electric Code which is very specific and can be expensive. Others have adopted some variation that complies with the standard partially but is still sufficient to prevent "stray current" from causing harm. The pool bonding process must be completed before concrete is poured and typically a "bonding inspection" is required to make sure everything complies to the local code. Pool bonding is generally done by the pool installer, not the electrician. Your local building or zoning department can advise you on the specifics in your area. Pool & Spa
