We all have pent-up summer vacation plans. After 2 years of limited summer travel due…
If you just moved into a home with an old concrete pool, you’re probably already thinking about how to make it look better. Or if you have an old concrete pool you put in 10+ years ago, you’re already planning to give it a facelift. There are plenty of pool renovations you can make that will make your old pool look new again.
Let’s take a look.
An older concrete pool may have plaster that’s chipping or cracking. Or it may be discolored. Pool resurfacing is a great solution. First, we fix any cracks or spalling in the concrete, and then remove loose plaster and roughen the surface in preparation for resurfacing. The new surface can be smooth plaster or an aggregate finish from Pebble Technology.
New Pool Tile
If you have older pool tiles, many of the tiles may be cracked or discolored. Or they may just look outdated. We can replace individual pool tiles if we can find a match, as well as replace will all new pool tiles. We can tile an entire pool or tile just at the waterline, depending on your style preferences and choice of tile.
New Pool Coping
Let’s face it. If you’re resurfacing your pool and replacing the tile, you should probably upgrade your pool coping at the same time. Pool coping may also be cracked or discolored if your pool is older. Upgrading your pool coping can give the pool an elegant, finished look.
Energy Efficient Components
When you’re doing cosmetic pool renovations, it’s also a good time to think about the inner workings of your pool system. Today’s variable speed pool pumps are much more energy-efficient than older pumps. Consider upgrading your pump to reap the benefits. While we’re doing renovations, we can also give the plumbing system a full check.
Pool automation is a great upgrade to add as part of your pool renovations. We recommend Pentair pool automation products. They allow you to control your pool and spa operations with your voice, your smartwatch, your smartphone, and your touch screen.
Chlorine to Saltwater Pool Conversion
Do you like the feel of ocean water? You can get that feel at home by upgrading your pool from a chlorine system to a saltwater pool system. You can make this change at any time, whether you are doing any other pool renovations or not. A fiberglass pool will handle this change better since, over time, the saltwater can degrade a plaster finish and discolor a PebbleTec finish.
A Note About Pool Remodeling
You may have heard the phrases pool renovations and pool remodeling used interchangeably. They’re not quite the same. Pool remodeling is a more extensive process and rather than just making cosmetic updates, it creates something new. These options can include:
- Enlarging or changing the shape of the pool
- Adding a spa
- Installing pool lights
- Installing a tanning ledge
- Adding a pool waterfall
- Adding fire bowls
- Replacing pool decking
- Revamping pool landscaping
- And more
