11/6    Homeowners: Anyone have a swimming pool and know how much it costs
        to repair it? My mother's swimming pool needs repairs, and the
        estimate is about $4000. The following needs to be repaired: 1.
        Waterfall is cracked; leaks, does not hold water; needs to be
        repaired. 2. Tiles in jacuzzi are cracked, missing; needs to be
        replaced.  3. tiles in pool are missing; needs to be replaced.
        4. Crack in bottom of pool; starts in shallow end and runs to
        middle of pool; should be repaired.  5. spillway into pool is
        cracked needs to be repaired.  6. Pool border needs bonding.
        7. Rough edges of pool rocks need to be smoothed.  8. Flagstone
        around pool is cracked and needs repairing.  9. After all pool
        repairs have been completed, the expansion joint needs to be
        repaired.  10. Patio pool area surface needs to be re-painted.

        reasonable to you guys? Thanks.

        structurally deficient or functionally obsolete. A third of the
        nation's highways are in poor or mediocre shape. Massively leaking
        water and sewage systems are creating health hazards and
        contaminating rivers and streams.
