I would absolutely spend $5k to fix it. Your kids have loved the pool and the next family's children may do the same. If you leave it 'as is', the pool inspector will call for the work to be done.

If during the discovery phase it is apparant that the seller let things 'go', it may reflect in the perception of the whole property.
Being both a listing and sales agent, I have experienced the negative effects of deferred maintenance unless the seller is willing to heavily discount the property.
