Are you a homeowner? If you’ve had your home for ten years, you may be planning to do some updates and increase the value of the property. Now, if you are a homeowner that has a swimming pool, then keep in mind that your oasis also needs an update from time to time, whether it is the coping, tile, pool decking, or a complete overhaul.
A swimming pool ages, and the moment will come where it needs a renovation. It is a delicate procedure that requires a professional. Platinum Pools is ready to help by giving you the best remodel recommendation your pool deserves by using the right method to make your pool new again.
See the Signs That Your Pool Needs A Remodel!
The most common reasons to remodel a swimming pool are:
According to the experts, water leakage can develop via skimmers, pipe valves, return jets, main drains, and lighting fixtures. You don’t want to take any chances; calling a leak-detection company can help you to avoid more significant problems and economic expenses in the future. We highly recommend that you do a leak detection before doing any renovations on your pool to ensure that nothing is leaking before or after renovations are completed.
Change Skimmers, Pipe Valves, Return Jets, Main Drains, and Lighting Fixtures
These parts are glued and placed into the structure of the pool. By hiring a professional, it can stop any leakage during the replacement process. All pool drains must now be VGB compliant. If you are having your pool remodeled and do not have VGB compliant drains, you will need to swap out your pool drains.
Tile & Coping Replacement
After some years, the coping can deteriorate due to many factors, causing it to crack and possibly injure anyone barefooted. If you see this happening to your swimming pool, get a professional to repair it immediately. Keep in mind that the coping has many vital functions like keeping water from falling behind the concrete shell and keeping the splashed water out to flow from the pool and into drains nearby. Did we also say that they are the crown beauty of your pool?
If the pool pump is making a lot of noise, or if there is a leak between the pump housing and the motor part, you need to change or repair the pump immediately. Although some experts say that installing one is not difficult, we do highly recommend calling a professional pool technician to do it for you. Keep in mind that the equipment will need to be changed after a certain amount of time.
