Fun Ways To Add Functionality To Pools

Jul 25, 2008
Pool remodeling is a great summer project, and even better for the cooler seasons where work can be done out of the blistering heat of the summer sun. All types of additions for pools exist- with many adding quite a bit of value to overall value of pools and homes with just a few simple renovations.

Pool liners are made up of different materials, depending on the "look" that the pool owner is going for. Often times this is tile- but not just any tile. Most pools will use boring one-tone tiling systems that look fairly boring. To mix things up, try obtaining different colored tiles and weaving creative designs into the liner of a pool. Other materials such as stone can even add more natural feels to the pool in question.

The liner of the pool is what dictates the color that the water appears to be. Inputting a brighter blue liner can give a pool a much cleaner, fresher appearance. Liners can also be fixed to allow for lighting effects, which have become more popular as time goes on. Lighting effects, such as the famed disco ball effect, can add much value to the overall price of a home and pool. In addition, they are fun to show off to friends and non-immediate family members.

Outside pools suffer one big disadvantage- they will often only be able to be used when the weather is nice outside. But when it's starting to get a little bit cooler at night, and one doesn't want the fun to stop, the idea of inputting a heater to the pool comes to mind. Heaters will allow consumers to enjoy their pool where they otherwise wouldn't. It costs a bit more money to heat the pool, but the ability to swim at will is well worth it.

Going underwater without goggles, as most will find, can be a painful experience. A new trend in pools is to have salt water instead of chlorine. Salt water will keep the pool clean just as chlorine would, but it doesn't have the burning sensation or smell that chlorine does. Salt water is also much easier on the skin, hair, and overall health of the epidermis of those who are swimming.

To really add an impressive amount of awe to a pool setup, patios and barbecue pits can be added. Hot tubs, caves, and even waterfalls can be added for a more dramatic Hollywood effect, but these addons will obviously cost quite a bit more in effect.

Final Thoughts

As we can very well see, the average pool can be upgraded in any number of ways. This can be an expensive project to undertake, but those who have pools usually are aware of the costs before obtaining the pool in the first place. To find out more, talk to a local pool supplier or visit online resources for best rates and deals.
