If you have an old pool that’s seen better days, it could be time to start thinking about pool renovations. These aren’t always easy, but they are certainly more cost-effective than installing a brand new pool, especially if the main part of the pool is still there.
For us, it’s always best to speak with a professional pool builder and an experienced pool fencing installer to ensure you’re getting things right from the beginning. However, there’s no harm in thinking about things yourself ahead of time, which is why we’ve put together the following list of tips for renovating your pool.
- Use a Natural Pool System
Traditionally, residential swimming pools have used chlorine to disinfect them and keep them clean. However, chlorine is a toxic chemical with known health effects, so it’s a good idea to avoid it where possible.
Because of this, natural pool systems using plants and/or salt water have dramatically increased in popularity over the past few years. Alongside being more eco and health-friendly, these systems tend to be more affordable to maintain as well!
- Go for Energy Efficient Lighting and Equipment
Things like pool fencing, lighting and equipment are constantly being improved. It’s worth having a close look at the technology that’s currently available to ensure you’re using the best available.
Ideally, you should be going for gear that’s energy efficient. At the same time, you should think about installing a solar pool heater to cut heating costs, especially if you live in a warmer part of Australia.
