Jump in: 5 signs it’s time to renovate your pool

We Sydneysiders love our pools. Our city is blessed with year-round sunshine that makes even a winter’s day swim bearable for the more courageous of us. However, these summer day essentials have long been an integral part of our construction industry, meaning many have gone neglected for many years.

We all know the sight: discoloured walls, gungy water, rotting borders – it’s enough to make you think nobody has lived in the house for 40 years! Therefore, it should come as no surprise that many Sydneysiders witness these unsightly abominations and think, “yep, it’s finally time I did something about this”.

Enter the renovation, the work that reinvigorates this great Aussie imperative and brings it back to its glorious, ultra-refreshing heyday.

There are a few signs that it’s time for yours to be reinvigorated, let’s take a look at them below:

  1. It is scungy

You know it’s time for the best pool renovation North Shore homes can have when you notice how scungy yours has become. Dirty water and rotting walls are the telltale sign, the first because the water is obviously unswimmable and the second because it’s clear that no maintenance has been done for many years.

This happens, as there are hundreds of Sydney homes with this problem, but if you’ve been thinking of ways to reinvigorate the whole home through a particular build – this is the ideal solution.

  1. You want to boost your home’s resale value

Because you know a quality swim spot will do that for it. North Shore homes truly benefit from having highly swimmable spots for families, and if yours is not making the grade then the last thing potential buyers will want to be left with is the work to do themselves!

Instead, why not make this awesome investment? It will likely increase your home’s resale value, making it that much more appealing if potential buyers were to come through and find it – imagine the difference between a dirty old disgrace and a pristine piscina? Marked!

  1. You want to entertain in summer

You may have inherited this dingy swimming den from the previous owners, and you may be thinking, “I can’t have anyone around to swim near that – it looks toxic!” If this is the case, and you are looking to entertain come those sultry summer days, obviously this is one of the first places you should be looking.

Everybody loves having a barbie at home with a refreshing place for a dip, and you’re just putting good entertainment (and property) space to waste if you’re letting it further deteriorate!

  1. You want more exercise options

Because we Aussies are well aware of the immeasurable health benefits of swimming. Seriously, nothing does us better than a good few laps, from cardio through to muscle work, this is one of the great Aussie exercises. So, if you’ve been thinking of ways you can make your home more workout-friendly, reinvigorating that rank old pool is the way to go!

  1. You just want to cool down in summer!

Because you might not be able to do with your pool in its current condition, as you fear that jumping in will leave you covered in some kind of Hulk-inducing radioactive slime! But not with a full upgrade – it will look stunning and be one of the greatest home investments you are ever likely to make!

So, if you’ve ticked even one of these boxes, you can be sure it’s time for an upgrade…
