How old is your swimming pool? 5, 10, or 20 years old? There are plenty of pools in Southwest Florida that were built before 1990... making them over 30 years old! It doesn't matter what it is, if it's been around for that long, repairs and maintenance are needed from time to time. The same goes for your swimming pool.
The Southwest Florida heat and seasonal hurricanes can take a toll on your pool deck, pool screen, and pool surface. If these natural elements have been coupled with minimal maintenance over the years, extensive repairs and replacements will be needed. In this blog, we'll discuss how Sweetwater Pool Service can renovate your swimming pool to make it look new again!
Remodeling Your Pool
When does a pool need to be resurfaced? This depends on when the pool was installed, the last time it was resurfaced, and what material the surface is. For example, cement and plaster usually need to be resurfaced every three to seven years. More durable material lasts up to 15 years before it needs to be resurfaced.
How do you know when your pool deck needs to be repaired? An old pool deck will start to crack, the color will begin to fade, there will be chemical stains, and mold and algae growth will become more frequent. Cleaning, sealing, and maintaining your pool deck can help prevent some of these from occurring.
Keep a close eye on pool tiles! Pool tiles can be a beautiful added feature to your swimming pool. But, if they become faded or cracked they might need to be replaced. It's important to maintain your pool tiles on a regular basis by researching the proper cleaner for the tile material. If you notice a crack in the tile, contact us and we'll come out and see if it needs to be repaired or replaced.
Have you noticed a small hole or slit in your lanai screen? Dirt and critter have a way of making their way through damaged lanai screens. If it's not repaired properly, it will be noticeable and there's a good chance another repair will be necessary.
Does your pool cage screen need to be replaced? If a natural (or not so natural) disaster has caused severe damage to your pool cage screen, it's important to have it replaced as soon as possible. Failing to do so can lead to an excessive amount of dirt and debris clogging your filter. In the meantime, monitor the filter, remove any foreign objects that go into the pool, and keep a close eye on your pool until a screen goes up.
