Investing in an inground pool means making a lot of decisions. Not thinking things through…
Did you notice this past summer that your inground pool is looking a little worse for wear? Don’t let pool repairs and pool renovations wait until spring. If you notice any cracks in the pool, pool coping, or pool decking, fall is a great time to schedule renovations to beautify and protect your pool for years.
Your options for pool renovations that will take your pool from drab to fab include:
Option #1: Pool Resurfacing
This option is for a concrete pool. If your pool is older, you may have noticed the plaster finish is deteriorating. Pool resurfacing can give an old pool new life. And while you’re at it, you can upgrade your pool with one of the newer pool finish options. While you could certainly replaster the pool, consider going with a pebble pool finish such as those from PebbleTec or adding pool tile to elevate the look and feel of your inground pool.
Option #2: Upgrade Pool Coping
Do you have plain concrete pool coping? When undertaking pool renovations, one of the easiest ways to elevate the look of a concrete or fiberglass pool is to upgrade the pool coping. Some of your options include:
- Bluestone or other natural stone
Look for options that reflect your tastes.
Option #3: Upgrade Pool Decking
Consider upgrading your pool decking at the same time you upgrade the coping. The area surrounding your inground pool is representative of your aesthetic. If it’s currently plain gray concrete or cracked, it’s time for some renovations. Consider upgrading to travertine, other natural stone, pavers, or porcelain tile. Coordinate the pool decking with the rest of your patio.
Option #4: Upgrade the Inground Pool Equipment
Don’t forget the inner workings of your inground pool when you’re undertaking pool renovations. Consider adding or upgrading to:
- A variable-speed pool pump
- Pool heater
- Automatic pool cover
- Pool automation
- Why You Should Upgrade to a Pentair Variable Speed Pool Pump

Option #5: Add Fire and Water Features
Lastly, consider adding one or more fire and water features, such as:
- Pool waterfall
- Pool fountain
- Fire bowls
- Fire and water bowls
These features add an element of fun as well as elegance. And, after all, isn’t that what having your own pool paradise is all about?
