Spring is a busy time for new pool construction in Maryland, but it’s also a time when many homeowner’s who already have pools think about remodeling their old pool for a new season. You might have been happy with your pool when it was first installed, but are now finding it doesn’t quite fit your wants and needs. Pool renovations are a great way to breathe new life into your pool and give it a brand new look and feel that makes it practically feel like a new pool. In this week’s blog, we’ll answer some common questions pool owners have about what they can do with a pool renovation.
Pool Renovation Questions
Can the depth of the pool be changed?
Yes. One commonly requested renovation is bringing up the level of the deep end to match the shallow end. For pool owners who find the deep end doesn’t get much use, this is a great way to increase the surface area of the pool that gets used by swimmers. On the other hand, if you don’t have a deep end, you can always lower one part of the pool to create one.
This is no small task. Changing the depth of the pool takes a lot of work and will require a new finish. But it can be done!
Can the shape of the pool be changed?
Yes. If you’re tired of the shape of your pool, you can change it. Like changing the depth of your pool, this is another labor intensive renovation but it is possible.
Can I move the pump and filter?
Certainly. Lots of pool owners find that they want to move the pump and filter system to a spot where they are out of sight, and the noise they make is more muffled. Of course, you want to make sure you still have easy access to the system for normal operation and maintenance.
Can I change the deck and coping?
Absolutely! Changing the deck and coping can give your pool a completely new look without changing its dimensions. In addition to changing the form of the deck/coping, you can also use this opportunity to improve its functionality. For example, if you have an old concrete deck, you might want to consider replacing it with pavers or stone, for increased durability.
