A pool should not look like a big cement hole in the ground with water. If it does, now is a great time to update the look of a swimming pool for summer so it stands out and screams, “refreshing and spectacular!” Whether changing the look of a pool, or simply updating and replacing surfaces and tiles, there are custom features that can enhance the look of a pool to fit any personality and style.
Retiling- Waterline tiles make for easier cleaning in pools but, pool chemicals can leave tiles needing replaced. “If the calcium in the pool water is too high, it will begin to adhere to the tiles showing calcium build up. The calcium can get so thick it becomes very difficult to scrub off, making tile replacement necessary,” said Gustavo Dominguez, owner of GD’s Tile and Pool Plastering. Cracks can appear in tiles and pool surfaces, over time. It is important to get them fixed or replaced in order to minimize damage to the pool and the surrounding patio area. “Always maintain the water level to the middle of the tile in order to avoid damage to the pool equipment,” suggests Gustavo.
Replastering- A pool surface can only last so long. After time the plaster develops bare spots that can expose concrete and rough patches. Over the years, cracks can develop in the plaster and cause leaks. Algae formation is another problem in pool surfaces that can require attention. Plaster is the most common surface to use in a pool. Traditionally it is mixed with cement, limestone or sand. Another option is pebble pool plaster, a plaster surface with pebble aggregate mixed in. It is stain resistant and durable. The finish gives a more natural look to any pool. Quartz pool plaster is a plaster surface with quartz aggregate mixed in. It is highly stain resistant and durable and can introduce a variety of colors into the look of a pool.
Mosaic- Mosaics add a decorative accent. Mosaics can be added to the surface of a pool or they can be added to the waterline level. They are highly decorative and can provide a very unique and individual look.
Waterfall & Spa- Waterfalls and spas provide a relaxing addition to a backyard swimming pool. Spas can be built as a pool addition or completely stand alone. “Spillway spas are a popular addition to pools,” said Gustavo. Nothing beats the soothing sound of a waterfall. Waterfalls also function as a pump, by moving water around. The styles vary from natural, modern and dramatic.
Lighting- Parties are a great time to show off the dramatic effect of pool lights. Pool lights come in assortment of colors and LED lights are available for pools in order to save energy. Fiber optic lights provide a dreamy effect and can change colors while out for a late night swim.
