When it comes to pool renovations, what improvements would you choose?
I just purchased a home with an inground vinyl pool in the backyard. The liner will need replacing in the next year or so, should we consider switching to a concrete pool instead? Having also read about the benefits of a salt water pool system, should we also consider this change? What would be involved and what sort of costs (long or short term) could we be looking at if we switched?

Great questions. Answer will depend on your overall renovation budget and projected use of the pool.

You may wish to track your use and cost (maintanence, electric, water, personal hours cleaning, chemicals)  for one year to help assist you with a renovation option.

I do not work on pools, but used to have an in ground with vinyl liner in my home.  The first thing that came to mind when I started reading your post was switch to salt water.  Then I read that you mentioned that!  I don't know all the benefits why you should, but I thought the largest were that they are easier to maintain and don't require as much chemical as a chlorinated pool.  Some people I know say that they are much more enjoyable to swim in as well.  

Are you a building professional?
