Swimming pools are a great addition to your backyard. Whether using it as a personal spa or hosting pool parties or both, pools offer you the comfort and convenience of a home gym and time to bond with your loved ones.
You want the pool to last long — often decades – but often pool owners start seeing the problems after using it for a couple of years or even less if you made the wrong choice of installers.
For whatever reason, we are sharing with you the alarming signs that hint toward pool remodeling as a need and not just want:
Plaster chipping off the inner side of the pool or the deep crevices are formed? This is pretty common and the reasons can be many but using sub-standard construction material is prominent. Timely repairs can reduce expensive renovation in the future but the fixes should be permanent.
If frequent repairs are made, then surely something is just not right about the pool. And maybe the problem is something deeper like the absence of a pool enclosure or patio enclosure that protects your pool from unpredictable heat, rain, and snowfall.
Obstinate stains at the bottom of the pool
Outdoor swimming pools are common but they face lots of environmental challenges. One of them is the growth of algae. The reasons can be
- Poor chemical balance
- Lack of sanitation
- Insufficient water circulation
- Poor water filtration
The growth of algae results in health risks in abundance such as skin and ear infection. The unsightly algae growth is an eyesore and prevents the water system to work properly.
Left unattended, the algae growth may weaken the pool structure. You can prevent the debris from collecting at the bottom and hence prevent algae by regular pool cleaning and maintenance.
Or, you can save your efforts and time by making a valuable investment in automatic pool covers. Cover and uncover the pool at your discretion and keep the water squeaky clean for swimming and parties, any time of the year,.
Moved in a property that has an in-built pool? Well. you may or may not like the style. Most likely this would be a basic pool design, something that doesn’t fit in your needs and lives up to your reputation.
You like a modern pool — like a jacuzzi with state-of-the-art infrastructure- with luxury tiles, an in-built music system, LCD, lights, etc. For people who host parties for friends, a pool that doesn’t creates the instant spark doesn’t add much fun.
Rising energy bills
Let’s accept that running swimming pools is not a cakewalk. And if you have equipment installed to keep it functional for frequent use such as the pool pumps, then utility bills are bound to shock you.
In fact, the traditional pools are not a cost-effective option in the times we are living in. So, switching to a modern swimming pool with the latest features that add to energy savings is a wise option. The investment you make once on pool renovation will give returns for years to come.
Lack of safety
You want fun for your family, kids, and even pets but not at the cost of their life, right? So, a pool that suffices more than just the functional purpose will always find more customers.
For instance, extra stairs for kids and pets, pool covers/enclosures for automatic perusal, all of this add to the safety for you and your family.
Swimming pools can be the centerpiece of your property. Only if you want that to be. Swim alone, spend intimate time with your partner in a home spa, or hosting a grand pool party for the new year’s eve, pool remodeling will make all the difference.
