Have You Winterized Your North Georgia Inground Swimming Pool Yet?
North Georgia weather is forecast to be wet and chilly this 2015-2016 winter season according to the Farmer’s Almanac. If you have not made preparations to close your pool for the winter, then now is a great time to do it before the first official Fall Frost on November 15th, 2015 as predicted by The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
If you’d like to learn more about the actual process of Winterizing your inground swimming pool then check out our past article called Winterizing. A brief synopsis of what it means to Winterize your inground pool is to treat and clean it really well, lower the water level a little bit, get water out of the drains and pipes so it does not freeze or crack, then cover the pool.
You can choose between a mesh cover or solid cover, our past article goes more into depth on solid or mesh safety winter covers. There are pro’s and con’s to both. If you decide to go with a solid cover then you’ll need a submersible pump to get excess water that accumulates. A mesh cover is nice because the water passes through. A mesh cover is also lower maintenance during the off-season for this reason.
If all this is to daunting for your busy schedule, please call us to schedule your pool closing this Winter.
Bonus Tip to Winterizing your North Georgia Inground Swimming Pool: Check the tree’s around your home and pool, with the extra rainy season coming our way this year, the ground will be wetter, softer and dead and/or weak tree’s will come down. Make sure any overhanging branches are trimmed back and not susceptible to falling onto your swimming pool safety cover or roof. It can do major damage!

Tips For Buying Or Selling Your Home With A Swimming Pool in Georgia
Will a swimming pool increase the value of your home or could it actually decrease the value. Here in Georgia and the Southeast where the climate stays warmer most of the year, a swimming pool could increase the property value from 5 to 10 percent according to the National Association of Realtors. If you are buying or selling a home with a pool, our team at Aqua Fun would like to offer these tips and suggestions to make your dream home something you can really dive into.
Buying your dream Home with a Swimming Pool
Here’s what to check for:
- Condition – look for obvious warning signs such as cracks, pealing or loose vinyl liner and clarity of the water. Is it well maintained?
- Style – does it fit the neighborhood? Does it leave room in your yard for more?
- Age – does it need updating? Will it need to be replaced or repaired while you live in the home.
- Safety – are there safety covers or gates around the pool?
These are all factors one should take into account when interested in buying a home with a swimming pool. It all helps with the resale value, when and if, you decide to sell the home again in the future. If you want to make an offer, ask to see the maintenance records and schedule a pool inspection along with the standard home inspection during due diligence.
Selling Your Home with a Swimming Pool
Here’s what you should do to add value to your home in the eyes of a buyer:
- Stage the pool area and sell the lifestyle.
- Hire us to clean the drains & water.
- Scrub any stains on pool tile or decking.
- Keep detailed maintenance records.
- Landscape it! – “Landscaping adds an average of 14.8% to the value of a home. These homes sell as much as five to six weeks faster than homes without landscaping”, says SwimmingPool.com.
You can make sure your swimming pool is a wonderful asset when selling your home. It’s vital to have the pool in pristine shape so you can impress potential buyers.

August is a good time to work on your inground pool landscaping. It’s a great month to prepare the soil for adding fall plants. It’s important to clean up all debris and mix in fertilizer or compost before you start preparing your perennial flower beds, it’s not too late to prepare the flowers for next spring. August is also the time to plant bulbs for a large array of beautiful lilies.

Aqua Fun is always staying up on the popular swimming pool design trends and 2015 is looking better than ever!
There is an upswing in new pool construction and contemporary pool design & remodel. With that comes beautiful, functional new ideas to share. Many of the same designs that were hot in 2014 are also going to be hot in 2015. There are a couple of newer trends making their march to greatness and possibly into your new inground swimming pool design we will share as well. It’s all about personal style and more choices when making the plans to turn your own backyard into an island oasis. Our team of professionals can help you do it all.
2015 Swimming Pool Design Trends
Exercise Pools and Hot Spa’s
Take care of those muscles in a smaller pool design with a built-in spa. Also called lap pools, strengthen your body with a new inground swimming pool made for exercising, then relax your muscles and mind in your built-in spa. There are different types of exercise pools. A true exercise pool has a resistance jet at one end of the pool that generates a current much like a small wave. The resistance jet allows you to swim in place without actually going from end to end of the pool. Then there is a lap pool with a long and narrow design. An exercise pool or lap pool has become more popular in recent years and the outlook keeps exercise pools trending as a top contender. Certainly as more and more homeowners find themselves in a home without extra room in their backyard space or pocket-book, small exercise pools are perfect for these kinds of challenges.
Natural pools and Salt Water Pools
We wrote a blog about Salt Water pools and suggest reading that for more in-depth discussion on what we think about Salt Water pools. We’ll be writing more about Natural pools in future blog posts however the best way to describe a Natural Inground Swimming Pool is to take a more natural focus when designing the look and feel of the pool. We join the pool design into the natural terrain of the landscape. Sure we can take the Natural Pool to whole new level beyond what we have described here, however, for clarity, we prefer designing the pool in a natural looking state with Salt Water.
Geometric Shapes and Water Features Overflow
Geometric pools are making a come back and that is partly because of the new features a builder can add. Things like incorporating the lighting with water and using the extra space for custom pool built-ins like sloping entries, seating, waterfalls, swim-up bars and sun-tanning ledges. The elegant visual display of overflow water cascading over the ledges, waterfalls, or water fountains and underwater illumination can bring your backyard retreat to a whole new magical realm. Rectangular, square, round, oval, octagonal and L-shaped pools were in great demand in 2014. The geometric inground pool shape generally fits traditional backyard spaces better than many of the more complicated designs and continues to be a popular trend in 2015.
Beauty and durability are the strong points of this popular trend. Whether you are building a new inground swimming pool or are looking to re-model your current inground pool, alternative finishes are great choices to modernize and glamorize your pool! Aggregate Finishes with Pebble Tec and Pebble Sheen have been steadily moving up in popularity and are a big part of Aqua Fun’s pool designs. Glass tiles are becoming more desirable than ceramic and porcelain tiles, partially because they are durable and are resistant to powerful chemicals used to keep the pool clean and maintained. Glass tiles come in various sizes, shapes and colors, used inside or around the pool / spa leaving a shimmer glow reflecting the water in the pool or on edges.
We will be writing an entire blogpost about digitizing your inground swimming pool. These days you can command your outdoor environment with your iPhone or Smartphone. Use your phone to control lights, pool & spa temperature, pumps, water features, pool cleaners including security cameras and landscape irrigation.

Enjoy recreational activities in your backyard swimming pool!
We’ve already talked to you about add-on’s for your existing swimming pool or new pool design in past blog posts – under water illumination, vinyl pool liner replacements & spa. Much of those add-on’s are geared towards luxury and comfort. This blog post is all about activity through recreational add-on’s.
We recommend adding a Waterslide, Diving Board or Splash Pad
Fun Water Activities, Backyard Cool!
Many of today’s kids are missing out on fun outdoor activities we all used to enjoy. There are so many pressures for modern day parents that it becomes easier to keep the kids safely indoors. It’s hard to find the time for the family to workout, so building a recreational add-on in your own backyard could become a significant life improvement for your entire family.
Whether you already have a swimming pool or are about to have us build your new pool, we can offer suggestions that will make your backyard space an oasis of tranquility and fun retreat all in one.
We think a waterslide is the ultimate recreational ad-on for your backyard swimming pool because it gives you a feeling of having a water park in your own backyard. The modern swimming pool slides we install come in an assortment of sizes and styles. The kind of slide you pick will depend on the type of swimming pool you already have or are building as well as the amount of space and personal preference you desire. We wonder sometimes, if the kind of slide some people pick match their personalities? Want to play it safe? Let us know you’d like a a gentle curve at the bottom instead of a straight and sudden drop into the swimming pool. Need more adventure? Have us install spiral corkscrew slide. Either way, we know for sure your life will instantly become more exciting! Do you already have a pool design with rocks and landscaping? No worries, we can probably upgrade.
Diving boards are iconic. How many diving board photos with movie stars or cute little kids have you admired? Adding a diving board is a classic upgrade that will change the dynamics of your back yard pool in a fun way. Diving boards have changed over the years, so be sure to ask about the different sizes, colors and functionality available for your backyard space.
Splash Pad Video
Thanks to BeachEdgePools in Arizona for putting together this awesome video about Splash Pads.
The video says it all! Splash Pads are fun.
Be on the look out for a future Add-On’s blog post covering Custom Entry’s, In-Water Benches and Table, Tanning Ledge, Grotto and Swim Up Bar. We recommend leaving these type of add-on’s to the professionals to ensure meeting safety and code standards.
All of us here at Aqua Fun Inc would like to thank you for reading our blog! If you know anyone who would like to know more about Recreational Add-On’s, then be sure to share this article.
