Best Time to Renovate Your Swimming Pool
Updated: Dec 14, 2021
Spring has sprung, which means summertime is right around the corner. If your pool is in need of some TLC, trying to decide when to renovate it can be a tricky question to answer. Before you pull the trigger on a costly resurfacing or remodeling, there are some things you might want to think about. After all, Sea Breeze Pools understands that pool renovations should be an exciting endeavor, not a frustrating undertaking.
According to industry standards, the consensus is that the most ideal time to renovate your swimming pool is in the fall and winter seasons, typically during the months from October - April. The reasoning for this is that these are the normal offseasons for pool-use. However, being living in Florida sometimes it might be more difficult to find a time that you’re not trying to utilize your swimming pool. However, there are other things you need to consider besides the timeline of the job in question.
What Needs to be Fixed or Refreshed? Pools these days can be pretty extravagant from grattos, to waterfall features. The scope of your pool renovation project could make it more or less challenging trying to decide the best time to start. If it is only something small like a pool heater repair or replacement, this could easily be fixed during peak periods of use, like the summertime, since the water heater isn’t being used as much during these times. However, if the job is more cumbersome, like resurfacing, you might want to think about the best time for you to schedule it, so it's not a hindrance to your pool-time. It is also important to consider if any further preventative measures that will need to take place, to make sure another problem doesn't appear right after the last one was fixed.
Swimming Pool Renovations Can Take Time
Depending on the size of the job, swimming pool remodels can take weeks, sometimes even months to complete. To ensure a successful swimming pool renovation process, proper planning is key. Living in the great sunshine state, Florida, it is typical that pool owners may use their pools year-round. Keep in mind that taking your pool out of commission, due to maintenance, when you want to use it the most isn’t exactly the most ideal situation. However, sometimes serious issues demand immediate attention, so in those situations, there might not be much you can do from the planning perspective.
Here Are Some of the Most Common Remodeling Options:
Energy Efficient Equipment & Automation: Upgrading your pool equipment can save you money. The types of variable speed pool pumps that are being manufactured today could be much more energy-efficient than the one that is currently keeping your pool afloat. Additionally, switching your pool’s light to an LED could lead to some additional savings on your energy bill.
Adding Water Features: If you’re trying to take your pool to the next level, a water feature might be just what you're looking for. From scuppers to gushers, or even waterfalls, it seems like nowadays the possibilities to transform your standard pool into a stunning masterpiece are endless.
Resurfacing: This is normally a higher priority compared to the other options due to the possibility of leakage which could lead to serious damage to the integrity of your pool. If you notice a crack in your swimming pool or any serious water loss, it's time for a repair. This also includes tile/coping repair and replacement - if you don’t act fast, your minor issue could turn into a major problem in a matter of days. For more info on this, check out our pdf HERE.
