Remodeling your pool can seem like a big, expensive project, but it doesn’t have to be. There are small remodeling projects that can quickly revamp your pool without breaking the bank. If you’re looking for budget friendly ways to modernize your pool, try some of these simple remodeling ideas. 

Saltwater System

Upgrading your pool can go beyond cosmetic changes. If your facility wants to cut costs, consider switching over to a saltwater system. Saltwater systems use salt to sanitize pool water by making chlorine through a process called electrolysis. Therefore, your facility won’t have to worry about buying, handling, and storing chlorine. Instead, a salt water system keeps the water clean by using salt as a chlorine generator causing less skin and eye irritations for guests. It also reduces long term maintenance costs.

Water Features

You may think that adding a waterfall or a fountain to your pool would be a big investment, but it doesn’t have to be! Simple water features are very affordable, and they can still add something special to your facility’s pool. The more extravagant the water feature is, the more pricey it will be. However, there are many beautiful water features that your facility can choose from that won’t break the bank. 

Waterline Tile

Another affordable pool remodeling project is updating the waterline tile. Adding new waterline tile dramatically changes the look of a pool. This gives you the opportunity to create a more contemporary look without fully remodeling the entire pool. Multiple colors and patterns to choose from make it easy to make your pool unique.

There are two ways to go about this remodeling project. Your facility can choose from using border tiles or vinyl. Border tiles can be made of glass, ceramic, porcelain, or mosaic. They offer durability, but are a little more pricey than vinyl. Vinyl has a sticky back that adheres to the side of the pool. The application is easy and very cost efficient, but it is not as durable as tiles.

LED Lighting

LED lights are an affordable way to customize your pool. The installation is quick and easy. You’ll have a range of colors to choose from, and you can create light shows and patterns. Many new LED installations can even be controlled and customized from an app on your mobile phone. 

In addition to adding extra flair to you pool, LED lights also increase safety. How? They make it easier to see during an evening swim. 

Fire Pit

Make your pool stand out even more by adding a fire pit! A fire pit can quickly transform a pool area from ordinary to extraordinary. A fire pit could offer additional luxury at a smaller cost compared to other pool remodeling projects. 

Remodeling your facility’s pool doesn’t have to be overly expensive, and you don’t have to do every project at once. There are multiple ways to go about affordable pool remodeling. Revamping your pool to look more modern can be as simple as updating the details or including new features like a waterfall or fire pit. No matter what project your facility decides to undertake, it’s best to leave the implementation to your local pool professionals. This way, you can ensure that the job is done properly.
