Winterize Your North Georgia Inground Swimming Pool – November 2015 – Aqua Fun Inc.

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.

Safety Covers Aqua Fun Inc.

You can choose Mesh and Solid Safety Covers

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!

Winterize Your North Georgia Inground Swimming Pool – Call Today! (770) 419-7119.

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

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.

Things to consider when designing your swimming pool and backyard pool landscaping are what kind of lounge chairs and umbrella tables will you add to the mix? There is so much to consider and it may get overwhelming trying to figure it all out. If this is you then have no fear, the design team at Aqua Fun Inc. will be able to take care of this for you.

Summer Pool Party Tips

It’s that time of the year again, the school bell is ringing all over North Georgia. This can be an exciting time but also a stressful time. Just because school is back in session does not mean the summer is over. What better reason is there to celebrate the new school year, blow off some steam and invite your friends and family over for an end of the summer pool party than this?

The kids will love swimming in the pool playing classic pool games like Sharks & Minnows, but they will also enjoy playing a simple game of Simon Says on the pool deck.

Get those Super Soakers out after the planned activity, the kids will never get bored. Look out because you might just get wet.

You know the party has started when dad does a belly flop. Have your camera’s ready, these are epic moments the kids will never forget. If belly flops are not your cup of tea then a good old fashioned cannonball will work just fine. These days of summer are priceless and memories can last forever so be sure to snap pictures.

Beach balls and hula hoop’s can be a lot of fun. There are several games one could play with either toy, but the game you see below is a great way to combine the two. Do you like basketball? If you do then you will really enjoy this game.

7 Ways To Prepare For Your New Pool Construction – Swim By Summer

Pool and Spa by Aqua Fun!

Luxurious swimming pool!

Prepare For Your New Pool and Swim By Summer

1. Build Your “Dream Pool” Pin Board.

Follow Rachel Cook’s board Our Pools and Spa’s on Pinterest.

Help us know what you’re looking for, start a “Dream Pool” board on Pinterest. Invite us to your Pinterest board using our email address –

2. Decide between a Gunite, Fiberglass or Vinyl Inground Pool.

  • Gunite Pool is the strongest of the three choices, and also the longest lasting.

Read a comparison of the three pool types, pool liners and surface finish choices.

3. Have a clear sense of purpose.

Ask yourself why you’re installing a swimming pool. Do you want to exercise more? Are there small children in your family who love to swim and you want to create more family time? Want to increase the value of your home? Are you a naturalist and want a Salt Water Pool instead of a chlorinated pool? Whatever the reason, knowing your purpose will help us make it the dream pool you have been wanting.

4. Decide what kind of pool shape you want.

Once you have established how you will be using your swimming pool, it will be easier to decide the shape. Rectangular designs provide a timeless, classic look and are great for swimming laps and playing pool games. If you prefer a natural looking pool, then a kidney or free-form shaped inground pool can blend with the landscaping and be a great choice for you.

5. Focus on the details.

Pick Recreational Add-On(s), Water Features and Underwater Illumination to complete your dream swimming pool design. 2015 Swimming Pool Trends include but are not limited to Custom Entry’s, In-Water Benches and Table, Tanning Ledge, Grotto and Swim Up Bar, Diving Board, Water Slide, Splash Pad, Exquisite Waterfalls, Bubbling Fountains and massaging jets.


Do you want to add a spa to the pool design? Not sure if it is in your budget? Be sure to ask the professionals at Aqua Fun, our team of experienced designers can help you come up with the best plan for your dream pool!

6. Keep safety in mind.

Do you want a pool alarm? If you have small children around you may want to consider it. Child-proof locks on gates, and security alarms on windows to the backyard are also considerations. Safety Covers will add that extra barrier of protection you may want. Aqua Fun is all about safety first and with that added security you can have peace of mind knowing your family is safe around the pool.

7. Plan your pool party!
