Pool Upgrades

It isn’t just a pool’s appearance that can become dated; its systems can as well. While a well-built swimming pool can bring decades of enjoyment, filtration and heating systems will likely need replacing before a pool does. Even if they are still functioning, it is quite possible that a newer system will offer more thorough, and energy-efficient, service.

One of the most efficient changes we suggest for a pool’s filtration system is making the switch to salt water. This relatively-new technology is one of the most significant improvements we’ve seen in the industry since we began installing swimming pools in 1970. A saltwater filter system relies on a biological process that uses an electrolytic cell and ordinary salt to generate natural chlorine. This is a more environmentally friendly way of killing bacteria and algae while making the water feel “softer” and more pleasant than chemical chlorine.

As is true with virtually every appliance in your home, pool filtration and heating systems have become much more energy efficient in recent years. Upgrading to cutting-edge equipment can result in reduced energy usage and a cleaner, clearer pool.

We can also work with you in updating your pool or spa – or both – systems to one that can be controlled via the Internet, or installing new lighting. Please call us at 860-623-9886, or email us at info@aquapools.com, to arrange a consultation.

Chester, CT Pool Renovation

Here’s a recent example of a pool renovation we completed for a customer in Chester, CT:

Inground Gunite Pool Before

Before the Renovation

The Pool Shell

The pool shell was in acceptable condition, but had several layers of pool paint on it. We sandblasted off the old layers of paint and then removed and replaced the tile and coping around the edge of the pool. We also installed 6-inch wide by 12-inch deep and 3-inch thick concrete paver coping and new frost-resistant porcelain tiles along the entire perimeter. The new interior finish (which is not paint) is Diamond Brite “French Gray”. Diamond Brite is the brand name for a quartz aggregate blend that is applied to inground gunite pools for a beautiful and durable finish.

The Pool Mechanicals

The pool pump was in working order so that remains, but we replaced the filter with a new, high-flow, environmentally friendly cartridge filter. We also added an energy-efficient heat pump, replaced the pool light with an LED color changing light (also energy efficient) and added a saline (salt) chlorine generator. As a result, the homeowner will no longer have to add chlorine to the pool.

The Finished Product
