DIY Pool Renovation Essentials


If you’re feeling a little dissatisfied with your pool, it might be the perfect time to think about giving it a facelift. Maybe the standards were different when you first installed your pool or you simply didn’t have large installation budget, so you had to settle for some different from what you wanted. No matter what’s the reason for you wanting to update your pool, there are plenty of renovation projects you can go for. We made a list of 5 of them that are guaranteed to help you bring your pool back to life.

Go for LED lighting

Your pool lighting is something that’s always going to have a huge effect on the looks of your pool. And if you opted for a standard lighting when you were first installing your pool, it might be a good idea to replace them with something more modern. Of course, new lighting options available on the market include LED lights, which not only look amazing, but use less energy as well. Moreover, since LED lights have become so popular, you can today find them in just any color you think that would look great in your pool.

Install a salt water system

One of the biggest trends right now when it comes to swimming pools, is using a salt water system. These little things use salt to create chlorine, which means there’s no need for you to add it like you’ve been doing before. Therefore, you’ll no longer have to deal with storing and handling chlorine. Another amazing thing about having salt water in your swimming pool is that it’s easier on both your skin and your eyes. It’s also important to mention that salt water pools are easier and cheaper to maintain.

Add a water feature

If you’ve been thinking about adding some style to your pool, adding a water feature is something you can never go wrong with. Luckily, there are so many types of swimming pool water features you can opt for which means you should be able to find something that matches the style of your pool. Of course, we’re talking about features such as waterfalls, scuppers, sprayers and so on. If you decide to go for one of these, bear in mind that installing it won’t always be easy and that maintaining your pool will become a bit more expensive.

Apply a fresh coat of paint

Now, paint is one of the most common pool surfaces because it’s a much cheaper alternative to some other options out there. However, if you’ve painted your pool a couple of years ago, you might want to think about applying a fresh coat of paint once again. If you decide to do this, you’ll have to buy quality swimming pool paint and prepare your pool for the project. And with all the right materials and some free time, you’ll have a brand-new pool without having to pay a fortune.

Invest in an automation system

We all know how technology is constantly evolving and there are always some new pool gadgets and gizmos available on the market. Investing in just any type of new pool technology is guaranteed to make your life much easier. Some of the newest technologies out there include automation systems such as automatic pool cleaners and automatic pool covers. Not to mention that today, you can also get an all-in-one system that you can control via your smartphone and have it do all the work around the pool for you.

Go for any of these solutions and you should be able to make your outdated pool look nicer and operate more efficiently. Just make sure you always keep looking for some new pool updates you can go for in the future.
