Best Time to Renovate a Swimming Pool

Swimming pool renovations are becoming more and more common.  The wear and tear on a pool can be seen over time along with the age, especially when it is heavily used by your family, friends, and neighbors.  It is important to keep up with renovation of your swimming pool so that it can continue to function at its peak.  People often ask when the best time to renovate is.  There are a few factors to consider.

Think About What Needs to be Renovated

The extent of your pool renovation project could make it easier or harder to pick the best time to renovate.  Think about what needs done and see what fits best in terms of the use of your pool.  If something such as your pool heater needs to be repaired or replaced, this could easily be done during eak periods of use in the summer months, since the heater wouldn’t be used that much anyway.  More extensive renovation projects, though, will require you to really evaluate time periods where the pool is not in use quite as much.

Pool Renovation Projects Can Take Time

During a more intense renovation project, such as one that includes replacing a liner, working on the structural soundness of the pool, and so on, the pool is likely going to be out of commission for a period.  In order to properly schedule this time of non-use of the pool, think about having your project done this fall towards the end of the season.

Another consideration could be whether or not you are going to be going on a vacation.  If you are going to be out of town for a week, that could be a great opportunity for the pool renovation company to come in and do the work on the pool. It won’t be used anyway, so we will be able to do the work and have it all fixed up and ready for you for when you get return.

The key to any pool renovation project is proper planning. Knocking your pool out of commission for maintenance right when you want to use it most is not an ideal situation. If you can plan it out, though, for periods of time when the pool isn’t going to be used quite as much, the renovation projects can be much more manageable and far less straining on your overall pool enjoyment. Some renovation projects are necessary to be done immediately. In these cases, there isn’t much you can do from a planning perspective. When you can schedule them out though, take into account what needs to be fixed, how long it will take, and when your pool will be used the least.
