If you own a swimming pool, it’s likely that you know how important it is to ensure that the water has the proper pH balance and that it’s clean and free of debris before you, or another family member, takes a swim.

But, did you know that as you do these things, it’s also important to carefully investigate for signs that could indicate it’s time to renovate?

 Inevitably, it’s not only important for you to balance the water and clear debris, but that you also ensure there are not any structural concerns. If you don’t check its condition, and thus neglect to make any minor repairs now, you might not only face costly repairs down the road, but you could put swimmers at risk.

To help you better determine whether or not it’s time to renovate your pool, here are some signs you should be looking for:

  1. Tiles popping off.blog1
  1. The coping is cracked or lifting.
  1. There are cracks in the plaster.
  1. The finish looks old, dull, or discolored.
  1. The filter system and pump are not working correctly or at all.
  1. The decking is lifting or cracking.

Luckily, most of us can enjoy our pools years before we need to call a pool company to schedule a renovation, or before we experience any other mechanical or electrical problems. However, that doesn’t mean that just because you don’t see any problems, that there aren’t any. If you don’t want to find yourself having to pay for costly pool repairs down the road, you can schedule an annual checkup for your pool.
