About Me

Beginners Guide To Pool Care I felt like I had won the lottery the first time we were able to buy a house which had an inground pool. However, I quickly learned that I knew nothing about pool care. Several years later, I know how to care for our pool year round thanks to advice and help from my local pool contractor. I wanted to start this blog so that I could help other first-time pool owners with what to watch out for regarding their swimming pool. From signs of water leakage to how to winterize your pool, my blog posts are aimed to be educational and informative for pool care newbies.




4 Tips For A Pool Makeover With A Custom Design And Features For Your Enjoyment

Soon, the warm and sunny weather will be here, and you want to have your pool ready for a swim. Does it need repairs or are you planning on doing some renovations before the pool opening? There are some simple improvements that can be done to make over your pool to create an attractive and relaxing area for your outdoor oasis. Here are some tips that will help you make over your pool with a custom design and features before it is time to open it for summer.

1. Give Your Pool Area an Attractive New Deck Surface

One of the improvements that you may want to do to your pool to create a new deck area. If you have an old, slick pool deck surface, then you may want to consider options like porous, rubber-like pavements, which can also be colored to give your pool deck area a unique custom design. There are also options like textured seal coating for concrete and stone or composite decking with a textured surface.

2. Remodel to Change the Shape and Design of Your Pool

Older, deeper pools are the conventional pool design of the past, and today there are options for shallower designs. If you want to enjoy your pool more, you may want to consider features like grottos with a shallow water depth to enjoy it more. Major remodeling can include filling in your pool and making changes to the shape to make it more attractive and include practical features that you can really enjoy.

3. Update the Outdated Pool Filter With a Modern System

Another problem that you may have with an older pool is the outdated filter equipment. Today, there are many options to update pool filters and pumps with systems that need less maintenance and chemicals and help to keep the water cleaner. Some of these examples include natural filtration, DE filters, and sand or saltwater pool systems.

4. Add Attractive Aesthetic Features to The Design of Your Pool

There are also aesthetic features that can be added to the design of your pool and as decorative details for the area around your pool. These features can include things like rock gardens, aquatic features, and other improvements that improve the appearance of your pool and the area around it. Other options that you may want to consider are hot tubs that are integrated into the pool and have aesthetic features like a warm waterfall that helps keep the water in the pool comfortable.

These are some tips to help makeover your pool with a custom design and features to get ready for opening this summer. If you are renovating your pool, contact a pool service and talk to them about adding a hot tub to your pool to give it an attractive custom feature.
