Pool Renovation Ideas That Don’t Break the Bank

Are you tired of your old or outdated swimming pool? Are you dreaming about renovating your pool, but don’t want to break the bank? If you’re looking to avoid a major renovation, there’s fortunately ways to make dramatic changes to your backyard paradise without it costing an arm and a leg. Here are some swimming pool renovation ideas to consider if you’re looking to get the most bang for your buck:

  • LED Lighting:

    If you have basic pool lighting, LED lighting is a simple way to transform an ordinary pool into a unique and gorgeous paradise. It’s actually more energy efficient than traditional options, which can help to offset some of the costs of installation. The lights can be installed underwater or around the pool in a variety of colors to add your own style to your poolscape.

  • Waterline Tile:

    By simply adding adding waterline tile, you can make it look like you have a brand new pool. With a tile that matches the look you’re going for, you’ll be able to give your pool a quick facelift without fully resurfacing your space.

  • Saltwater System:

    Salt water systems use salt to create chlorine in the water so that you don’t have to add it traditionally. Many people like salt water systems because they’re easier on the skin and eyes, they’re also cheaper to maintain.

  • Water Features:

    While a water feature may be a bit of a stretch for your remodeling budget, things such as waterfalls are often fairly easy to add to a pool design and add an ambiance to your backyard.

  • Energy Efficient Features:

    For a more practical upgrade, there are plenty of features that are designed to make your pool less expensive to operate. For example, a variable speed pool pump uses less electricity  and may even apply for an energy rebate depending on where you live.


There’s plenty of ways to transform your basic pool into the highlight of a backyard oasis. If you’re ready to make some of the updates to your pool that you’ve been dreaming about, contact Aqua Blue Pools to schedule a consultation!
