Having a pool in your yard that’s in tip-top shape can provide you and your family with endless fun in the water. But your job is to make sure that your pool remains in optimal condition, which includes keeping an eye on certain issues that can creep up.
The following are some signs of potential problems with your pool that could signify that it’s time to renovate your pool.
Your Pool Needs To Be Resurfaced
Your swimming pool may need to be resurfaced if you notice any peeling or discoloration of the plaster on your swimming pool’s surface. Although this material can last a very long time, it can start to show signs of wear and tear at some point.
The problem with plaster peeling is that it leaves the surface vulnerable to chemical exposure. This damage can weaken the structure of the pool. Resurfacing your pool will both help maintain the structure’s integrity and keep your pool looking its best.
Lack of Energy Efficiency
Older swimming pools may lack the type of energy efficiency that you would see in today’s more modern swimming pool construction. It’s possible that your pool water’s heating or filtration system may not be as energy efficient as it could be if the equipment and your pool are older than 15 years.
If that’s the case, the equipment could be working harder than necessary and you could be spending more money to keep your pool functional than you need to. Renovating your pool can help bring it up to par as far as energy efficiency is concerned.
Walls Are Cracked
If you notice any cracks on the walls of your pool, this may be a sign of an issue that may require immediate attention. While minor cracks might not be an issue, larger cracks in the concrete can be a big problem that can weaken the structure of your swimming pool. Regardless of the reason for the cracked walls, you may need to either revamp the walls or give your pool a total overhaul.
