When Is It Time to Remodel Your Swimming Pool?

Pool builders can help you construct the brand-new pool of your dreams. They can also help you ensure the pool in the property you grew up in, inherited, or bought won’t be the stuff of nightmares.

Here are a few signs and scenarios when remodeling your swimming pool might be in order.

Faulty mechanics and equipment

First and foremost, you should remember remodeling isn’t confined to a pool’s design; it’s often done to serve a pool’s function. An older pool is likely to have dated (and probably faulty) filters, pumps, drains, and pipes, which could lead to problems ranging from leaks to contaminated water.

Deteriorated design elements

Perhaps you like the design of your old pool. Who needs all the modern minimalism with zen gardens and sleek glass enclosures? To you, kidney-shaped pools and mosaic-tiled steps are the best.

That doesn’t mean you should skip a fixer-upper. Cracked deck tiles, loose flooring, and rusting handrails all compromise swimmers’ safety. Thankfully, they can be upgraded quickly.

An outmoded look

And, then, perhaps, you don’t like everything about your old pool’s design. For example, you may want to keep the shape but add a few modern touches to its color and surroundings.

Add newer lights, water features, safety enclosures, a deck, a bar – any of these elements can breathe new life into your backyard.

Happy mediums

Once you start adding modern design elements, the safety and functionality of your pool can also improve. New pool deck paint would have ultraviolet ray and weather protection. Tiles could have non-slip protection. Lights and rails would help avert accidents.

You’ll have a modern, 21st century pool – without actually having to build one.
