A pool can be one of your home’s most invaluable assets. In addition to being a great source of recreation and comfort for you and your family, a swimming pool can also increase the value of your home. Remodeling an existing pool is a great way to enhance your pool’s appearance and its value. Here are some signs that your pool is in need of remodeling.
- Damaged Plaster
Over time, the concrete plaster at the bottom of your pool can become damaged. The first sign you may notice is that the bottom of the pool becomes rougher than usual. Sometimes you will even notice stains or discoloration at the bottom of your pool. In the more serious cases, fragments of the pool’s plaster will actually come off completely.
- Damaged Lining
The side of your pool is probably lined with vinyl tile. Over time, this tile can become damaged, increasing the risk of leaks. The most common sign that you need to remodel your pool and replace in the vinyl lining is the presence of large tears. If the liner is not replaced immediately, you run the risk of having more serious problems. For example, when the vinyl tiles start to come off completely, water from your pool can leak out and damage the base of your pool.
- High Energy Costs
Pools are quite resource-intensive and therefore require a substantial amount of energy to run and maintain. However, there are a number of new technologies that can reduce your energy costs. If your energy costs are exorbitant, this is a sure sign that your pool is in need of remodeling and modernizing. There are a number of projects you can undertake to make your pool more efficient, including overhauling the filtration system.
