Return to Paradise with a Pool Renovation

At some point in every pool’s life, it will need to be reinvented. From a vinyl liner replacement to completely altering the shape and appearance of your pool, all of this is possible when you choose a Fort Smith pool renovation expert like those at Riverbend Sandler Pools.

1. Update Your Vinyl Liner

Your vinyl liner will need to be replaced every 7 to 15 years depending on a variety of factors. But you may also want to change it because it is faded or has a dated pattern that makes your pool look tired and old.

2. Change the Shape of Your Pool

No longer a fan of that water-filled rectangle sitting in your backyard? You can completely revolutionize the shape and appearance of your pool with a pool renovation by:

  • Extending the length of your pool
  • Adding curves
  • Incorporating new ledges and entries (like a tanning ledge and a beach entry)

3. Modernize Your Pool Deck

A pool deck that more closely resembles a city sidewalk than a resort in paradise will take away from the entire appeal of your outdoor living area. Say “goodbye” to broom finished concrete and instead choose from:

  • Pavered designs
  • Stamped concrete
  • Natural stone decking (like flagstone)

4. Bring Your Equipment to the 21st Century

If you haven’t replaced your pump and filter over the past 20 years or so, they may be undersized or inefficient. Consider upgrading your pool equipment to a variable speed pool pump, a cartridge pool filter and the valves to 3-way valves. Choosing a new sanitizer system (such as a salt chlorine generator) will also help protect your pool and those who enjoy swimming in it.

5. Add Water Features

Adding one or more water features to a poolscape is one of the most popular pool renovation ideas, and for a good reason. The tranquil sound of falling water trickling from a deck jet or cascading over boulders will boost the ambiance level around the pool and your entire outdoor living area.

Riverbend Sandler Pools offers free onsite outdoor living and pool renovation consultations to anyone interested in sprucing up their existing poolscape or building a brand new backyard. Check out our gallery for inspiration and give us a call today at (800) 667-9180.

Unique Upgrades for Creating a Relaxing Poolscape

Homeowners contemplating the idea of a pool remodel should accept the fact that their ideas can only go as far as their budget allows.  But here’s some good news: You can remodel your pool and patio area to create that relaxing escape you have always wanted without breaking the bank.  

Consider Custom Pool Features

Sometimes all you need to create a more serene atmosphere is the addition of custom pool features to your poolscape.

  • Deck Jets: Deck jets give you the ability to create visually stunning water displays.  Jets can be used to create arches, waterfalls, bubblers and more.
  • Fountains: Nothing gives a sense of serenity more than the sound of trickling water.  Incorporating a fountain often adds that finishing touch to your dream poolscape.
  • LED Lights: LED lights are the perfect way to enhance any features you add in and around the pool.  Light blue and purple LEDs are top choices for pools created for recreation and relaxation.

Transform Your Terrace

Your poolscape is only one part of many factors when it comes to creating a laid back backyard atmosphere. Consider the following when transforming your outdoor living space:

  • Upgrade the patio by using patio materials and surfaces which match the ambience you are trying to create.
  • Consider updating your patio furniture and textiles.
  • Incorporate a fire feature or two (such as a fire pit, fire bowl or fireplace) to keep your backyard exciting.

Create A Landscape To Match

Landscaping is crucial if you want to have your newly renovated pool and patio harmonize with your backyard getaway.  For example, if you are redesigning your backyard so that it resembles the tropics, incorporate lush ferns, palms and brightly colored flowers.

No one has transformed their poolscape in a day. Take your time and choose to update one or two features at a time. As time and your budget allows, you can then continue to add or build onto these features until you have created your perfect and peaceful backyard getaway.

Pool Remodel Ideas for Fall

Have you recently looked at your pool and dreamed of incorporating some new and exciting additions to it or noticed certain areas which could use some improvement? The fall is a great time to renovate the pool not only because you may be using your pool less, but because remodeling the pool now means that it will be all ready for when you reopen your pool in the spring.

LED Lighting

If you have basic pool lighting or the classic floodlight, consider upgrading to LED lighting.  There are two key benefits to this:

  1. LED pool lighting is more energy efficient than traditional lighting
  2. LED lighting offers a variety of color options, making it easy for you to add that personal touch to your poolscape

LED pool lighting can be changed to suit an occasion or a holiday, and some options even allow you to create exhilarating light shows.

Waterline Tiling

Want to update the look of your pool without breaking the bank?  Consider updating your waterline tiling.  This will improve the appearance of your pool and it may even be necessary if you have cracked or broken tiling.

Some of the leading choices for waterline tiling include:

  • Glass tiling (can be used to create a myriad of gorgeous designs)
  • Stone tiling (best for nature-inspired pools)
  • Ceramic tiling (an affordable option)
  • Porcelain tiling (great for adding striking accents to your poolscape)

Upgrade Your Pool Equipment

Fall is a great time to upgrade your pool’s equipment to more energy efficient systems.  A variable speed pool pump is one of the most popular options as it uses less energy and it may even qualify for an energy rebate.  Solar powered features such as solar powered heaters and automation systems like robotic cleaners are also great options.
