When you install a swimming pool, you’ll get more than your money’s worth when it comes to overall enjoyment and experience. That being said, as time goes by, you may find yourself pondering whether you want to add something more to the pool to not only add value, but add some more elements of fun, utility and the like. Or even perhaps up front, you want to make sure your pool has a few added extras to enhance the experience. Whichever way you cut it, you want a little extra bang for your buck.
So today, we’re going to discuss a few things you can add to your pool that will make it more enjoyable, function at a higher level and allow you to get more value out of your experience. Let’s jump right in.
Pool bubblers are essentially mini-fountains that you can install in your pool. You’ll find them built into steps or tanning ledges and not only do they create a calming atmosphere in your pool, but they also make for a more exciting place for your kids.
You can fully adjust the height that the water comes out, which will also help you regulate the amount of noise and splash. Certain models even have LED color-changing lights, too. That being said – if you’re looking to add this feature to your pool, you’ll have to do it during construction as water lines will have to be run in order to accommodate them. But you’re in luck – this should only run you in the $500-$700 range.
UV sanitation systems
While UV Sanitation systems won’t replace the need for you to have to manage your pool’s chlorine or salt – it can dramatically reduce the amount of chemicals you have to use in your pool while simultaneously boosting the protection of your pool water. These systems are easy to set up and can be added to your pool at any time.
OK, so we recognize that this isn’t exactly an addition to your pool, it’s most certainly a worthwhile addition to the area around your pool. There’s no better way to warm up and dry off than by a nice, glowing fire. Fire pits are enormously popular additions and if you live in more seasonal areas of the country, they can help extend the use of your pool space earlier in the spring and later into the fall. There are plenty of fire pits out there that aren’t budget friendly, but most are; particularly the prefab versions. You can get yourself a quality fire pit for around $400.00.
Automatic pool cleaner
If there’s anything you’ll spend a decent hunk of time doing with your pool, it’ll be cleaning it. If you have a robotic vacuum in your house, then we say why not get one for your pool, too? Skimming and cleaning out dirt and debris on your own can be arduous and time consuming. Automatic pool cleaners won’t take care of all of your maintenance issues, but it’ll certainly carve out a substantial hunk of time that would otherwise be spent cleaning your pool.
Hopefully these accessories give you a little inspiration or an idea of some of the affordable options you have at your disposal. If you’d like to learn more about how you can enhance your pool space, give us a call today and we’ll be happy to provide you with a free consultation. Good luck!
