If you have a pool which is looking a little worse for wear and could do with a bit of a facelift, pool renovations could be just what you need. But what do you need to consider when undertaking your pool makeover project? Today, we look at the main things you need to consider so you’re left with a final result that you love.
1.Do you need to remodel?
The first thing you to decide if whether a pool renovation is necessary. In some cases, it’s actually the area around the pool or the equipment which needs to be updated rather than the pool itself. Some of the reasons which may indicate that a pool update is required include problems with the pool itself such as leaking, a very dated aesthetic, worn out materials or the existing pool being the wrong size.
2.What do you want with your new pool?
Once you’ve confirmed that you want to go ahead with the remodel, you can think about the form and function of your new pool. Look around at different pool shapes, colours, additional features and finishes to narrow down your final look. Also think about how much usage your pool gets to help you decide on size – if you have a growing family, you may want to upsize while others may want to downsize a too-big pool to give more room for entertaining. Be realistic about your budget and let your contractor know early on what you want to spend.
3.When is the best time to remodel?
Most people get inspired to renovate their pool just before the hot weather hits so you have the perfect summer experience. However, if you start your remodel just before summer months it often means you can’t enjoy the water during the warmer months as work takes place. For this reason, it’s best to wait until autumn or winter to go ahead with your plans – you won’t miss your pool while the upgrade takes place and you’ll have a beautiful new pool for the next swimming season.
4.What pool equipment do you need?
Although selecting the final look of your pool is lots of fun, you also need to consider practicalities with your pool equipment. There’s no point investing in a pool makeover if you don’t have the right equipment for the job. Speak to your pool technician about the upcoming remodel and get some expert advice. This could be the perfect opportunity to consider features such as adding a pool heater or updating your pump.
