4 Most Frequently Asked Questions About Pool Renovation from Cris Baird, Pool Renovation Expert

by Sep 16, 2018Blog

It’s difficult to think of surviving a summer in Central Texas without a backyard swimming pool. At the same time, if you’re going to be spending that kind of time in your swimming pool, shouldn’t it bring you feelings of peace, happiness, and relaxation? If you look at your pool and you’re happy it’s there but it’s not doing more than that for you, it may be time for a change. If you’re ready to give your swimming pool a facelift, it’s time for a swimming pool renovation. We sat down with Cris Baird, Crystal Clear Pools and Spas’ swimming pool renovation expert and discussed the 4 most frequently asked questions homeowners ask when they are considering renovating their swimming pools. Here is what we learned:

Question #1: Will you need heavy equipment access in order to renovate my swimming pool?

CB: The answer is NO, the largest piece of equipment typically needed for swimming pool renovation is typically a wheelbarrow.

Question #2: Will I need to get a city permit to resurface my pool?

CB: NO, the city currently doesn’t require a permit for pool resurfacing projects.

Question #3: I’m thinking about getting a pebble finishing. Will it be rough on our feet and scratch us?

CB: When the surface is installed properly and chemistry is kept within industry standards, you can expect it to feel spectacular under your feet.

Question #4: Do I need to upsize my swimming pool pump to get better flow to the pool?

CB: Absolutely not. During your swimming pool renovation, we will conduct a careful evaluation of your equipment and plumbing in order to ensure you have proper equipment for your pool. Bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better when it comes to pool pumps – a bigger pump is a waste if you have small plumbing.
