Owning a pool can be a lot of work, and routine needs like cleaning, pH balancing, and shocking can add up, but having your own backyard oasis is well worth the work. Most pool maintenance tasks are easy to handle yourself; however, deck resurfacing or full-service renovating needs can be more work than the average homeowner can handle. If it’s time to renew your pool area with new features or luxurious additions, here are some ideas to consider:
- Renovate the shape of your pool. Did you purchase a home with a rectangular pool, but you’ve always wished you could have a more natural landscape with a freeform pool? Is your pool kidney shaped and not comfortable for swimming laps? With a little help, your pool can be refinished in any shape you desire, with the opportunity to add that spa you’ve always wanted as well.
- Make it bigger!
If your pool is too small and you have the space to expand, you can make it larger, or even increase the depth and add a fun new feature, like a slide or diving board.
- Make it smaller!
Do you have children and an alarmingly large or deep pool? It’s possible to decrease the size and/or depth while adding a walk-in beach entry and shallow kids’ play area.
- Add new features to your pool.
If you’re happy with the size and shape of your pool, you can add stone, concrete, or brick surrounds, or high-end pool lighting to spruce things up a bit. Or, if you’re interested in a bigger “wow factor,” consider adding a waterfall.
- Upgrade from chlorine to saltwater.
A saltwater pool upgrade is a great way to reduce your pool’s maintenance needs. Saltwater pools cost less to keep up, and they involve a lot less time spent measuring chemicals and testing than chlorinated pools. Saltwater is also gentler on skin, hair, and eyes, and doesn’t come with any of the respiratory or allergy issues that accompany chlorinated water.
Why Is It Important to Upgrade Your Pool?
Every pool will need to be renovated at some point, due to the exposure to severe weather, animals, bugs, and constant sunlight that comes with being outdoors. Much like the exterior of your home, pools require occasional maintenance and renovation to keep them in tiptop shape. It may seem overwhelming to consider these sorts of projects, but when you’re cool and comfortable, floating in your perfectly sparkling blue pool this summer, you’ll know it was worth the effort.
