Remodelling Ideas for Your Inground Swimming Pool
As we look forward towards spring, it’s time to start thinking about your summer plans. There is no better time than now to get started planning renovations to improve your summer experience. When it comes to your outdoor living space, the winter is a great time to plan your landscaping or inground pool remodelling to ensure you can get started as soon as the weather improves. Over time, your inground pool can easily become damaged due to regular use and exposure to the elements. When considering renovations on your home, many people forget that remodelling their swimming pool can drastically improve their outdoor experience. In this blog post, we’ll provide some helpful tips and ideas for remodelling your pool this summer.
Depending on the lining of your inground pool, you likely have tile placed at the waterline. Many people choose to do this as tile helps reduce the grime you would normally see at the water level. However, even with tile, grime can build up overtime and replacing your tile can be a great way to refresh and improve the aesthetic of your pool during a remodel. If you do not have tile at your waterline, you could also consider adding it to help reduce the look of grime marking the water level.
Improve Energy Usage
Cleaning, heating and maintaining an inground pool can require a lot of energy. Reduce the overall cost of operating your inground pool this summer by replacing parts with energy efficient models. At Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs, we sell a variety of energy efficient pool parts to improve the function and running costs of your pool. This include variable-speed pumps, pool heaters and filters that can be selected based on their energy efficiency.
Resurface or Re-plaster
Depending on your budget for your inground pool remodel, you could consider resurfacing or re-plastering your pool to help improve both aesthetics and safety. If you have lost the grip in your pool, it can be a significant hazard to you and your family. Resurfacing can improve the safety of your pool to ensure you and your family can continue to enjoy swimming all summer long.
Automate Your Pool System
With recent advances in pool technology, there are many ways to automate nearly every part of your pool system. Lighting, pumping and heating systems can now be linked to apps on your smartphone to allow you to control your pool system at your leisure. Heat-up or cool down your pool at the touch of a button and adjust lighting from anywhere with these convenient advances in automation.
Depending on the age of your pool, you may want to consider either adding lighting features or upgrading lights to energy efficient and long-lasting LED bulbs. This is a cost effective and relatively simply way to improve the overall look of your pool during your remodel.
