Couple restore abandoned swimming pool that hadn’t been touched in over 20 years

A couple has impressed thousands on social media after sharing an epic restoration project of a pool that was abandoned 20 years ago.

Twenty-eight-year-olds Andrew Pougnet and his wife Sabrina Pougnet, from Ontario, Canada, moved into their home in June 2020, only to discover from neighbours that the pool hadn’t been used for around two decades.

After years of being covered with decking, the old pool had slowly filled with debris and rainwater – causing an ecosystem of its own to develop at the bottom, just like a lake. 

Starting home renovations the day they got the keys, the couple managed to finish the entire main floor before ‘working up the courage’ to tackle the in-ground pool over the past summer.
