Swimming Pool Remodel/Renovation
Never before have there been so many options to improve the looks and the efficiency of your existing swimming pool. In just the last 10 years, literally, dozens of new developments have made swimming pool ownership more enjoyable, less expensive, and easier than ever. Here are just a few of the options now available to you:
- NEW MATERIALS, such as pavers, natural stone, mosaic designs, and polished interior finishes
- MORE ENERGY SAVINGS with heat pumps, variable speed pumps, and LED lighting
- LESS WORK with automatic cleaners, salt chlorine generators, and automated chemical control systems
- NEW DESIGNS, such as beach entries, tanning ledges, and in-water tables & chairs
- NEW WATER FEATURES, such as waterfalls, grottos, water arches, rain walls, and water curtains

Take a homeowner that wanted to bring the look and feel of their favorite resort pool to their backyard, an existing pool that was not rectangular in shape, was too deep in the shallow-end, an undersized, leaking spa and you have the makings of a challenging renovation.
The renovation required the removal of 24 ft of the pool wall to add a sun shelf and square the pool in order to add an automatic pool cover. The existing spa was partially demolished to make room for the new, raised spa.
Honed and gauged Oakley stone, native to the area, was used for the coping, spa cap, and the hidden automatic pool cover housing. Gauged Oakley stone was cut and used as waterline tile. The Oakley stone blends beautifully with the polished midnight interior of the pool and spa creating an elegant and pristine outdoor living area perfect for family recreation and entertainment. Seven LED lights in the pool and spa add soft light. Equipment: A single high-efficiency condensing boiler and high flow heat-exchangers on the pool and spa, computer controls, and an automatic pool cover. An 8in line was added so the pool could be a fire suppression source.

SAVE TIME: Today’s Pools Practically Take Care of Themselves!
From chemical management to spa automation to automatic cleaners, new breakthroughs have taken drudgery out of swimming pool ownership.
Alternatives to chlorine: this is a common request we hear from our customers.
- UV and ozone, used in combination will produce what is known as Hydroxyl Radicals, a secondary disinfectant to chlorine. This multi-disinfectant approach provides a great way for owners to reduce chlorine levels.
- Turn on spa, heater, pumps, & lights from anywhere.
- Monitor and manage chemicals automatically.
- Accessible from anywhere – even your cell phone!
- Uses plain old salt to create pure natural chlorine
- Buffers the water & reduces chlorine demand
Polished type Interior
- Stunningly beautiful; many styles to choose from.
SAVE ENERGY: “Go Green” and save money too!
The industry has been working hard to develop more cost-efficient pumps, filters, lights, heaters, and control systems. Altogether, today’s swimming pools use about 60% less electricity than they did 20 years ago.
- Uses up to 80% less energy than gas heaters.
- Some models can also cool the water on extra-hot days.
- Extends the swimming season for just pennies a day
Multi-Speed and Variable speed pump
- Uses up to 75% less electricity than single-speed pumps.
- Runs longer at a low cost, keeping the pool cleaner.
High-Capacity, Low Resistance Filter
- Requires less pressure to filter the water.
- Lets pump run easily at a low-energy setting.
- One button keep kids, critters, and debris out of the pool
- Helps retain the heat, so the heater works less.
- Also reduces chemical usage
