Exciting Ideas for Pool Renovations - TMC Custom Pools

Your in-ground pool will bring you many years of fun in the sun. But at some point, you might start thinking about renovating it. Pool renovations can be functional, such as upgrades to the plumbing, or aesthetic, such as the addition of water features.

Upgrade your plumbing and equipment.

As the plumbing and equipment get older, it can be prone to problems like malfunctioning. But even if yours is working fine, you might consider making some upgrades to improve the energy efficiency. This can add up to big savings over time. For example, you might install a variable-speed programmable pump. You could also replace the lights with LED lights, which are far more energy efficient and have a longer lifespan than conventional bulbs.

Install a Baja bench.

A Baja bench, also called a Baja shelf, is an entryway to the pool. It’s like a raised platform or an oversized step. You can stand on the shelf and only be in a few inches of water. A Baja shelf is ideal for families with kids, as it allows the parents to splash around in very shallow water with the kids. Some people like to use the area for lounging. You can set up a lounge chair and umbrella on the bench, and relax while dipping your toes in the cool water.

Include a water feature.

Water features are a luxurious and beautiful upgrade for pools. Imagine how relaxing it will be to float in a pool with a fountain of water trickling over a rock formation. If you have kids, they might love a stronger cascade of water that they can play in.

Add an outdoor kitchen to your pool area.

An outdoor kitchen can increase the value of your home while also enhancing your family’s enjoyment of it. Consider installing a large grill and food prep areas. You might even install a mini fridge or have a stone pizza oven built.

This company exceeded my expectations on every level. They were very courteous and showed up on time. The work was outstanding and they were priced very competitively too. They worked very quickly and did everything that was promised. Their quote beat other pool companies by a LOT and we were very pleased with the finished job. I would not hesitate to call them again in the future and most likely will. Very happy with this work.

Had some cracked bricks around the edges and they did a quick repair job and didn’t get much debris in the pool at all. Definitely will call them if I need a pool contractor again. This was so pain free we’re talking about remodeling all the bricks around the edge of the pool!

- Alicia C., Tucson

Amazing customer service. I felt like we were taken care of like we were a part of their family. They went the extra mile to make my grandmother feel extra special and not pressured to make fast decisions. Always professional. I would definitely recommend to my friends and family for any pool needs.
