Subject: resurface fiber glass pool

I had some one patch the fiber glass and I made a bad choice. He did a bad job!! That's when I joined Angie's list. The paint he used is coming off for the second time. Now he disappeared so I cannot bug him to try to get my money back!!! Just need to know how much to resurface the fiber glass and paint it the right way this time when I can afford it. I cannot drain the pool again right now. He also put new tile in the pool, but I don't know if he did it right!!!

My order of preference - first choice a jacuzzi/hot tub repairman (from a jacuzzi/hot tub/sauna distributor), second choice a plumber (many do not work on hot tubs, jacuzzi's and sauna because they cnanot afford to stock parts). An electrician might be able to fix it if it is a connection problem, but such motors are seldom repaired if the problem is internal, just replaced - which would be a jacuzzi repairman/plumber type job.

You will have to find out what your model costs new - looks like they run from about $400 to 1700 depending on size. IF yours is at the lower end, might be just as cheap to replace it, with parts and labor. If not low end, then repair probably works. Typical pricing of components that might have gone out - switch $80, timer/control unit $130, heating element $100 (probably most likely to have failed) - so if only one of these went out, figuring $100-200 labor, probably cheaper to fix it. I would contact your dealer for a better idea.

BTW - here is a Saunatec instruction on maintenance on the heating element and rocks, failure to follow can shorten heating element life, if that is what went out (and probably the simplest to replace) -
