Year Round Aquatic Facilities Can Renovate Anytime



For year 'round facilities, anytime can be a good time to renovate. Seasonal pools may have the luxury to worry about repairs and upgrades during the “off season” but if your pool is open all year 'round, you'll have to prioritize your pool and what you need to repair, upgrades you need to make, or plan your renovation. After all, the sooner you fix what ails your pool the sooner you'll be back to business as usual!


The Upgrades:


Maybe you don't need a huge overhaul, but it's time for some basic upgrades. Safety is an area that definitely needs to be kept up-to-date. Aging safety padding or do-it-yourself pads just can't go the distance when it comes to providing quality fall-zone protection at your aquatic center. Opt for upgrading to padding designed exclusively for the aquatic environment. Pool padding is built to withstand the tough pool conditions year in and year out. We designed our SoftSide™ padding with a thick layer of durable PVC that is both watertight and pore-free. The padding exterior is also formulated to prevent common organic growth. One great step you can take is to choose custom padding that will fit your fall-zone exactly. Water play features, slides, and more can be tricky but guests need protection that works – enter custom padding. SoftSide pads, for example, are available in both ready-to-order and custom options and from 1”-4” thick.



The Repairs:


Maybe you have a small leak that you've been putting off but you know you can't afford to wait much longer – it could be in your gutter or even in your pool vessel. This is a repair that has been coming and it's time to fix your pool. You don't need a huge renovation in order to make your pool improvements – but repairing a leak is vital to keeping your pool in good working order. The gutter is an extremely common place that older pools may see losing water, as well as the pool vessel. For the pool vessel, one long-term total solution is to choose a PVC pool liner installation. A 60 mil PVC pool liner will encapsulate the pool vessel and totally seal off any leaks, chips, gaps, cracks, or holes – making your old pool essentially a new pool interior. While getting a new pool interior is a renovation of sorts, it's also a major repair that has to be done...sooner or later. A new gutter system can be done along with your new pool vessel, or separately depending on the shape of your pool. For example, we offer both PVC and stainless-steel gutters from our DuraTech™ line in a variety of configurations. Both PVC and stainless-steel are excellent options for indoor installations. They're sturdy and watertight – creating a perimeter that will keep water where it belongs. You can also fix broken, chipped, or aging pool grating during a repair. PVC or stainless-steel grating are both great for indoor pools.



The Renovation


Maybe you've decided that you'll announce to your guests that the pool will be closed for renovation and you really mean it – you plan a major overhaul and total transformation. That's a great game plan, especially if your old facility no longer fits your needs. You can change the shape of your pool if you desire, building a larger pool vessel, or just its interior with a PVC pool liner. You can even upgrade the deck – and go from bland and common concrete to attractive and safety-conscious PVC flooring. We designed a recreational flooring that provides improved stability even when wet. Our RecDeck™ is highly textured to provide extra traction where guests need it most. You can even choose to install this style of floor at only the entry/exit points of your pool for a safety upgrade. Your renovation can change the focus, the feel, and even the function of your pool – it's all up to you and your design.
