Is Your Old Damaged Pool An Eyesore? Create A Backyard Oasis In No Time

If you have a pool and you don't utilize it because it needs some repairs, there are a few things you can do to create a great entertainment space. If this is a liner pool that went without proper maintenance, fixing the pool may be easier than you think.

You can turn the old pool that no one uses into a spot where you can relax and where friends gather to have fun. Here are a few things you want to consider.  

Fiberglass Liner Replacement

Instead of replacing the vinyl liner or repairing cracks in the foundation of the pool, you may be able to have a fiberglass insert put in. The pool contractors will take the measurements of your pool and have the insert ordered, and the pool could be delivered in just a couple weeks. This is easy for the contractors to install, the liner isn't porous and doesn't absorb water or bacteria, and the pool is smooth and easy to clean. This is an affordable way to fix the pool.

Patio Furniture

Get great comfortable lounging furniture that you can put around the pool. It's worth investing the money into furniture people will want to lay on and sit on, instead of cheap folding chairs that hurt your back or hard to adjust. You can get overstuffed patio chairs, sofas, tables and more, and all are designed to be water proof and left outside. Picking furniture with modern and colorful cushions is a great way to update the look of the space.

Outdoor Music

Do you have to carry a music player outside every time you have people over? Get a speaker system wired out by the pool so you can control what is played outside the house, and get speakers that are waterproof. This way the music can be heard while you lounge and at all ends of the pool. There are speakers shaped like rocks and that can be hidden if needed.

These are just a few of the ways that you can take that old pool that you don't use, and turn it into a selling feature and great investment for your home. Talk with pool contractors (such as those from Eastgate Pools) to find out what repairs your pool needs to start working again properly and to find out what different items and amenities you can add out by the pool. Your house can be your own oasis in a short period of time.
