Or possibly you’ve added a child or pet to the family and you are interested in remodeling with the latest safety features. Whatever your reason, a pool remodel can completely change the look of your swimming pool area.
If you have had your pool for a while and you are interested in upgrading the features, there are many things that you can add to update it. Consider adding water features such as waterfalls, fountain bubblers or deck jets. You can also add other features such as fire features, waterslides, rock walls, a hot tub or even lighting features.
Changing the finish of your pool is a great way to make a drastic change to your pool area. There are so many choices of finish – whether you choose tile, plaster, aggregates or even vinyl. When changing your pool finish, be sure to pay attention to important factors such as geographic area, how you will use your pool, design elements that complement your home’s colors, etc.
Adding safety precautions is a great reason to remodel your pool area. You may need to add a pool fence or pool safety nets to protect children and pets. You will also want to be sure that you pool has the latest in anti-entrapment equipment to prevent hair, limbs or other body parts from being sucked toward the pool drain.
You might also want to remodel your pool for energy efficiency. If you have an older pump, you will want to upgrade to an energy efficient, variable speed pump, which will use 30-45% less than a standard pump. A pool cover can also keep your pool water warmer, saving energy costs to heat the pool. A cover will also reduce evaporation. Many people are also choosing to remodel by adding saltwater conversion. This more natural option will allow a homeowner to handle less chemicals and save money in the long run.
So, no matter the reason to remodel your pool, be sure to explore all of the options available to you and choose the best for your backyard, your home and your family.
