Top 5 Pool Trends in 2018

Aqua Fun Shares Top 5 Pool Trends for 2018

Roswell pool and spa

Vinyl Pool with Stamped and Stained, Raised patio wall with Sheer Descent and Basketball Court integration

The forecast is good for a bustling economy this year and our team at Aqua Fun is already feeling the benefits. Many home owners have been reaching out about building an inground swimming pool in their backyard oasis. Our designer keeps hearing the same type of question from our new customers, “How can I make our new pool stand out?”. We’ve decided to offer a few pool trends we see coming in 2018, some are new trends and some are past trends that have carried over from recent previous years.

#1 – Pops of Color

When an interior designer transforms a house, they use pops of color to change the feeling, and tone of the space. Like you would use pops of color in home decor to set the mood, you would do the same for the interior of your pool. Darker colors are trending in 2018, it gives an illusion to a deeper, darker pool which exudes a relaxing spa vibe.

#2 – Unique Tiles

Whether you choose a darker vibe or a light clean interior, you want to make your pool unique to you yet stand out from any other pool. Choose an accent tile that is funky, or something out of the ordinary that could be an expression of your style or a conversation piece.

#3 – Depth

Now this is something that everyone needs to think about when designing a pool. Are you looking for something more for exercise and diving? Or are you interested in something for lounging and playing games? It’s something to think about. It’s difficult to play volleyball in the pool that has a different depth making it a perfect even playing field for many water games. So keep that in mind when you are thinking about how you get the best use out of your pool! Peoples tastes and ideas change, and this year we anticipate the depth of a pool being more of a factor.

#4 – Saltwater

To use saltwater or not to use salt water. That is the question. This is not the newest of trends with pools, but people are asking for saltwater pools more frequently. One factor to consider is how you will maintain your new saltwater pool, Aqua Fun is happy to help you maintain your saltwater pool or empower you to maintain your own saltwater pool. This trend looks like it’s not going anywhere as we move into a more organic less chemical state of mind.

#5 – Decor

Last but not least, going back to the first trend which is pops of colors. As an interior designer would decorate the inside of your house, you should also be reminded of the difference it can make on the exterior. Pops of color and tile aren’t the only things that can make your space unique but lighting, furniture, shrubbery, outdoor kitchen, rug or pillows can completely change the ambiance and feel of your perfect customized space. Be sure to check out our Pinterest board with photos of trendy outdoor pool furniture, lighting, art and landscaping ideas.

Why wait? Get your Fiberglass Pool Installation this Winter

With the cold weather upon us, it’s easy NOT to think about swimming in your own backyard pool. However, getting your new dream pool installed over the Winter will save you money and time. This is off-season and there are benefits for scheduling your new pool design and install today. What about a fiberglass pool?

STRENGTH and DURIBILITY

You may wonder if a fiberglass pool can sustain through cold weather and the answer is yes. In fact fiberglass pools have amazing strength and believe it or not, flexibility. The pool will not crack simply because it’s cold, in fact fiberglass pools stand the test against Winter, even offers more structural stability than other materials like concrete and vinyl.

SHAPES

There are many shapes to chose from such as rectangular, classic, free-form, custom, kidney, lap pools and more. Let our team of professionals help you decide the best layout for your backyard paradise. You can add tanning ledges, steps, spill over spa, additional recreational add-on’s, lighting (underwater illumination) and coping just like you can with any other pool types.

MAINTENENCE

Fiberglass pools can be easier to maintain because the surface is not porous and algae does not grow as much as it does with other types of materials.This saves you on the chemicals and overall maintenance. If you properly maintain your pool year after year, you will also be pleased with the longevity your fiberglass pool will offer you.

Already have a fiberglass pool? Have you Winterized it yet? We would like to help you get your pool ready for Winter.

Throw the ULTIMATE end of Summer Pool Party | Aqua Fun Inc.

With the first day of school coming up, throw the pool party everyone will talk about. Throw the ultimate end of Summer Pool Party at your house!

Our team at Aqua Fun receives feedback from our clients and others with their reasoning for wanting a new in-ground swimming pool. One of the recurring stories we hear go back to their childhood or family Summer memories at the pool. Most people growing up in America can remember laying out by the pool, swimming in the pool from day to night, perfecting their front flip off the high dive or getting a gorgeous tan while listening to music.

Here are a few tips to throw that end of summer pool party everyone will talk about:

  1. Create a great theme. Here are a few ideas: Hawaiian Luau, Back to School Bash, Star Wars pool party or Football theme. It could be all sports themed simply by adding a volley ball and a volleyball net inside the pool and/or adding a floating basket ball goal with a waterproof basketball. Having a score keeper and referee will bring the intensity up a notch.
  2. Invite people about 2 weeks out. Mail invitations, send an Evite or start a Facebook Event. Let them know there will be food, fun and great memories made. Be sure to incorporate your theme on the invitations.
  3. Plan your meal or snack plan in advance. Here are some quick and easy ideas for a refreshing food spread: fruit salad, cream cheese rolls, fresh sliced vegetables with fresh buttermilk ranch dressing, eskimo pies, watermelon, pasta salad, kabobs, Rice Krispy Treats and Lavender fruit pops. Find perfect recipes on our Pinterest board and plan in advance.
  4. Add fun pool toys. Even if you don’t have a theme, these ideas are fun for every pool party: noodles, beach balls, volleyball net, small squirt guns and super soakers, floaters and of course glowing light balls. Lay out on a big pink flamingo or swan float and dive to the bottom of the pool to get the glow stick. Fun pool toys are a must for any pool party!
  5. Classic Pool Games and other Pool Games can be planned in advance. Make it easy, pick a game from one of these blog posts – classic pool games and/or other pool games, then modify the games and pool toys to match your pool party theme.
  6. Keep extra supplies such as sunblock for adults and children, tanning lotion, chapstick, bug spray, aloe lotion, a first aid kit and water bottles. Buy a few decorative baskets or buckets to hold these items for easy access and aesthetic visibility.
  7. Hire a professional photographer. You can find a good deal on Groupon or use Thumbtack to find a local photographer. Make it a tradition every year, create those memories!
  8. Fire and Water! (Another fun theme idea) – There are many creative ways to incorporate an outdoor fire to the backyard activities, especially at night. Roast marshmallows, make s’mores and tell summer stories around the fire. What a great way to end the pool party with a nice relaxing fire crackling in the night air. Dip your toes in the water after drying off next to the fire. Want to build that backyard fireplace or fire pit? We can help you with that! Just click here to request more information about building an outdoor fire pit or fireplace by your in-ground pool.
  9. Send everyone off with a special gift. If you want to make a lasting impression, send everyone off with a gift of some kind. If it’s for children may be a goody bag with fun little games and candy would be a great place to start. What about a t-shirt with the party theme and year saying something like “We survived the Thompson’s Back-To-School Bash 2017”. How about an adult goodie bag with items such as customized drink coozies, pens, calendars, hats, paper fans, hand-made soaps or lotions.
  10. Start a theme based Song Playlist. 

At Aqua Fun, we love to hear about your great Summer experiences around the pool. We appreciate hearing from you and witnessing all the fun you’re having by posting your Family & Friends Pool Party pictures on our Facebook page.

Have you been wanting to have a end of summer pool party but don’t have a pool yet? Contact Aqua Fun and schedule your no obligation consultation. We’ll offer an estimate for your new dream in-ground pool and have it designed and installed so you will never miss a Summer pool party again! All of us here at Aqua Fun Inc would like to thank you for reading our blog!

More Pool Games For Summer Swimming | Aqua Fun Inground Pools

Swimming Pool Games Are Summer’s Most Fun

We wrote a blog post called Classic Pool Games and had great feedback. Our team at Aqua Fun Pools decided to offer you a few more pool game ideas with a focus this time on Modern Pool Games.

Water Hoops

Love basketball or volleyball? If so, then you will love water hoops. There is an entire cottage industry built just for pool games. Water Hoops is at the top of the most popular Modern Pool Game list. Check out the different types of water hoops for sale on Amazon – inflatable basketball hoops, side mounted basketball goal, volleyball hoops and  floating basketball goals. This is a great way to bring family and friends together in a competitive manner.

Another Water Hoop Game smaller children love to play is swimming underwater, through a hula-hoop.

Watermelon Relay

Watermelon, as we all know, is a Summer fresh fruit staple and is also known for it’s All-American, Summertime image. Fun thing is, whole watermelons can easily become a thrilling pool game. You have to be in decent shape because technically you won’t be ale to touch the bottom. Players must push a watermelon from one end of the pool to the other with other touching the bottom of the pool with their feet. The challenge comes with a greased down melon.

Fish

Have you ever played games with the basketball such as P-I-G or H-O-R-S-E? Well think of Fish as the swimming pool version of P-I-G or H-O-R-S-E. It’s a repetitive game where player #1 performs a task that must be repeated. If any of the players are unable to do the task then they get the first letter in the word F-I-S-H. Be careful, whoever gets all four letters looses. Also, rules should be set to determine fairness.

Octopus

In the pool game called Octopus, someone is “IT”. It’s similar to Sharks & Minnows but in this game, the solo-Octopus or “IT” stands in the middle of the pool while players line up one one side of the pool and attempt to get to the other side without being tagged. Whoever gets tagged has to hold hands with “IT” and they tag the players together. With each round, the Octopus arms extend further and all players must be tagged. Then a new round can start and a new “IT” can be picked.

Do you have any modern pool games y0u’d like to add to this blogpost? We’ love to hear from you, and if you have photos of your family or friends playing any of these pool games post it on our Aqua Fun Facebook page.

Tips For Picking Best Inground Pool Size And Shape | Aqua Fun Swimming Pools And Spa’s

Best Inground Pool Size & Shape

Tips from Aqua Fun Swimming Pools & Spa’s

FreeForm Shaped Pool

Free Form Shaped Pool with Flagstone Coping, Spillway, Tanning Ledges and Diving Board

How do you know if you are choosing the right pool for your budget, needs and yard?

Ask yourself these questions:

  1. What is the purpose of getting a pool?
  2. What is your budget?
  3. How much space do you have to build a pool?

Purpose for swimming pool?

Are you adding a pool to your backyard for the purpose of daily exercise? Or are you planning to entertain a large family and/or group of friends? Do you enjoy playing classic pool games with your family?  If the purpose is exercise then a lap pool may work, those tend to be rectangular in size. You can opt for a sports pool which is great size and shape for an afternoon Volleyball game and tend to be shallow on each end and deeper in middle and can extend past a rectangle shape looking more like an “L”.

On the other hand if you are building your new dream inground pool mainly for entertainment purposes you may want a free-form or kidney shaped pool with a spill-over spa and tanning ledges. The choice is yours and together with our experienced designers and builders, you will have the pool of your dreams!

How much pool can you afford?

Depending on your budget, you have choices. The first place to start is looking at the price difference between a vinyl pool, fiberglass pool or gunite pool. With any of the three choices, there are always pool maintenance costs associated with it so you want to equate that into your choices as well. For example, Vinyl Pools do require vinyl pool liner replacements over time, and the fun thing about replacing the vinyl liner is that you can give your pool a make-over.

If you want to make your neighbors jealous, think about going with a gunite pool upgrading  to a  Pebble-Tec finish. Just like with anything, details matter and the details can increase the cost. For example, adding glass pool tiles may cost more than just adding standard pool tiles, but the reward is magical! Imagine these glass tiles glistening in the sun and reflecting off the water.

Get financed for your new pool with our preferred partner.

How is your Backyard Space?

Do you have a small space with a sloping backyard? If you do then that will affect the layout of your pool. There are creative ways to maximize even the smallest yard. If your backyard is a wide open space you have more choices in size and shape and our team at Aqua Fun work with preferred quality construction builder partners who can work in conjunction with us to make any backyard more functional and as beautiful as you want. With larger backyards you can add backyard kitchens and fireplaces to compliment the pool decking and theme.

Here are some different pool shape and size choices to consider:

Geometric Shapes – circles, ovals, rectangles, square
Free form, Kidney, Figure 8, Lazy L, Greek & Roman shaped pools

Exercise – lap pool, sport pool
