Is it time for a swimming pool renovation?
There are a myriad of reasons you may want to undertake a swimming pool renovation. If you purchased a home with an existing swimming pool you may want to put your own personal and unique spin on the pool in your backyard and that may require a renovation. If the pool has seen better days and if you haven’t kept up on maintenance or even pool water chemistry it can negatively impact the pool and equipment and may lead to a renovation project.
Here are some other reasons for the renovation.
- Replace a faded or torn pool liner
- Have the pool acid washed or replastered
- Upgrade and update equipment to more energy-efficient models
- Redo the design of the swimming pool (a major undertaking)
- To add a hot tub
- To add a slide, diving board or other pool accessory
- To automate the pool with a built in vacuum or other pool automation
- Upgrade or completely change the coping
- To add a heater
- To change from a chlorine cleaning system to a salt water chlorination system
- To add or remodel your pool deck

Most times, pool owners will wait until they have more than one item to be renovated or repaired so they can get it all done at once.
If you’re not sure whether your pool or its equipment needs to be upgraded, ask your pool contractor the next time he pays a service visit. He is intimately involved with your pool equipment and will notice when the pool pump pressure is dropping or increasing and many other subtle changes in equipment you may have missed.
Ask your pool contractor to give you an estimate on what it will cost for must-do items and for want-to-do items. Look at your budget and see what you can afford; there may be some items that you simply cannot put off and you may need to move quickly.
