Should I renovate my pool?
Town & Country Pool Builders, answer, “should I renovate my pool”?
Is your swimming pool showing signs of love and wear? Have you purchased a home that came with a swimming pool? Do you want to add some oomph to your existing pool without performing a complete remodel? If so you may be asking, “should I renovate my pool”? To that, the swimming pool contractor from Town & Country Pools explain, you might want to undertake a complete remodel, an upgrade to existing pool equipment to more energy efficient models, or you might want to add water features. Now that the 2016 swim season is under way you may be thinking of ways to upgrade before the season starts next year — and this is the ideal time to do just that!
A swimming pool renovation project could be part of a “want to do” list or a “must do” list to address pool flaws or to replace equipment. Here are some to consider:
- Is the tile cracked or faded? Fading may mean you’ll want an upgrade for aesthetic reasons. Cracked tiles are a must do list because they can lead to an injury or could lead to further structural damage.
- Is your pool leaking? Harsh weather leads to cracking a potential leak. A leaking pool wastes money, but damage the structural integrity.
- Is it time to expand your pool to accommodate a larger family If you can’t swim laps, it might be time to extend the length. If you have a lap pool that is too small to accommodate family fun, you may want a larger pool.
- Do you ant a diving board or slide? A hot tub or spa? A fountain? Tanning shelves? Add those to your wish list of pool remodeling projects.
- Are you using a single speed pump? Did you know this could be costing you an inordinate amount of money? Ask us about the money-saving benefits of a variable speed pool pump.
- Upgrade or update your pool filter to a different style.
- Ask us for ideas on renovation items that make sense based on the way your family uses the pool.
After we’ve inspected the structure and equipment, sit down and prepare a budget for the items and determine which ones to begin and get on the contractors’ construction schedule and you’ll greet the 2015 swim season with a “new to you” pool!
