Remodeling Your Swimming Pool: Helpful Tips from the Pros

August 31, 2018 Written by: Nick Luisi

There are several ways that pool owners can approach the business of remodeling their pools, and not all of them result from just wanting something more aesthetically pleasing. Any pool can incur damages over time, whether that be from years of use or years of exposure to the elements. Sometimes, people are interested in adding more modern technological features to their pool spaces, and other times it could simply be a matter of safety.

Whatever the reason, there a few ways to approach a remodel that can improve the looks and the functionality of your pool. The following swimming pool remodeling ideas from Sunset Pools & Spas could help with both:

Change the Tile at the Waterline

One of the most obvious benefits to using tile at the waterline in the first place is that it masks the grime that typically marks the water level, regardless of how clean you keep your pool. Over time, those marks can show up quite clearly, so one feature worth adding during a remodel would be new tiles to spruce up the look and longevity of the pool by hiding that waterline.

Consider Resurfacing

If your budget can provide for it, there comes a time when every pool needs a resurfacing or re-plastering. If the surface of a pool has worn down unevenly or lost its grip, adding one of the newer aggregate finishes could bolster the overall aesthetic and safety of the pool, especially if you opt for certain colors in the aggregate. Quartz and stones can even be added for an even higher-end look.

Be More Energy-Efficient

If you’re investing in a remodel anyway, consider doing so with new energy-efficient parts and materials to use less energy and perhaps lower your monthly electric bill. For example, there are several solar-powered features available at Sunset Pools & Spas, as well as variable-speed pool pumps that could even earn you a rebate from your utility company.

Switch to LED Lights

Whether your pool currently features lights or not, adding LED lighting in the remodel can completely alter the mood of a space without having to spend a whole lot of money. These lights come in all different shapes, sizes, and colors, and some can even be controlled by a smartphone app. For an easy boost to the ambiance of a pool, LED lights are about as quick and easy as it gets.

Go Automated

LED lighting isn’t the only pool feature that can be controlled by smartphones. There are systems that also can connect to the pump, pool heater, and actuators that can allow some pools to switch from a pool to a spa with just a tap of an app.
