Everything To Consider Before You Refurbish Or Remodel Your Swimming Pool

Refurbishing or remodeling your swimming pool will bring back its beauty. Pool remodel options vary widely, ranging from simple overhauling a few pool components to all-out demolition and rebuilding. Remodeling your pool is not an easy task. Depending on what you're remodeling and the size of the pool, it could be a lot of hard work. The following guide will help you with all the decisions you have to make for your swimming pool refurbishment project:

Clean the Pool and Deck Surface to Start

Your pool should be spotless when you begin your refurbishment project. The pool surface should be clean, so check for debris, leaves, and insects. If algae is a problem, use a stiff-bristled brush or clarifier, and add algaecide if the problem is severe. You want to make sure that the surface is clean before you even start planning the pool remodel.

In addition to the pool surface, you also want to clean up around the pool deck area. When cleaning up the pool deck area, remove debris. This includes and damaged surfaces, like flaking or chipped concrete. This will ensure the surface is clean if you choose to apply a new finish over the existing materials.

Take Pictures to Create the New Design

Another thing that you want to do when planning a pool refurbishment is to take pictures. You want to start taking pictures once the pool area is clean. Take pictures of everything from the pool surfaces to the existing equipment setup. You can use the photos to get an idea of where you want to start with your pool remodeling project.

You can also print the photos of the pool to start drawing ideas of what you want the pool to remodel to look like. There are also applications that you can upload the pictures to and start redesigning your pool. Finally, if you have some ideas, you can send the originals and your ideas to the pool remodeling service to start designing your pool.

Upgrades for Pool Surfaces and the Pool Deck

One of the main objectives for your pool refurbishment might be a new surface for your pool. There are various options for custom materials that you might want to consider for the pool area. This can include features like a custom tile surface, as well as a new surface for the deck area.

Starting with the pool deck area, you might want to consider options like custom tile. The tile you use for your pool can be glass or mosaic features that give it a custom appearance. If you are using plaster or liner, there are also options for custom designs that can be added to these features.

Today, there are also various systems available for pool deck surfacing that you might want to consider for your project. You might want to consider options like porous pavements or other pool deck systems that are designed to stay cool or make your pool area safer.

Getting the Most Out of Pool Equipment

Finally, you don't want to forget about the pool equipment. Today, there are a lot of options to update the equipment. You might want to add features like UV treatment and chlorine disperser to your pool, which will help keep it clean and reduce maintenance. There are also options like sand filters, saltwater systems, and variable speed pool pumps that you might want to consider for your pool.

The options to refurbish your pool can vary depending on your budget and vision. Contact a pool refurbishment service to start planning a new design for your project.
