WHILE THE 80’S MIGHT MAKE BRIEF COME-BACKS IN FASHION, an 80’s style pool isn’t quite considered a classic yet. Not to worry though, the professionals can transform your “totally tubular” style into a natural wonder. Bob Cunningham, owner of Mission Valley Pools & Spas, who has been bustling with pool remodels says the most popular updates are to equipment, coping, and interior finishes. Pebble Tec & Hydrazzo are go-to resurfacing favorites.
Other popular upgrades mostly revolve around keeping things green and saving green.
GREEN LOGIC INTEGRATION allows access to your pool controls from your iPhone or iPad. These hi-tech systems have become much more affordable and actually save money through added energy efficiency, not to mention convenience.
SOLAR HEATING SYSTEMS are also, ahem, heating up. Bob estimates that 30-40% of his new pool projects are using solar these days.
A POOL COVER may seem like a hassle but it certainly doesn’t have to
be. automatic covers work with the touch of button, are an important child safety precaution and further increase your pools energy efficiency by keeping the heat where it is supposed to be—in your pool. There are even specialty covers for vanishing edge pools.
TRIPLE DECKER vanishing edge leads to vanishing edge leads to vanishing edge as the water flows from the spa to the pool to the children’s pool. By Mission Valley Pools.
You don’t need a Bellagio sized budget to put on a water show. Features like colored LED lights, water cannons, and fire-bowls are far more reasonably priced than you think. Bob has had
a great time programing full color light and water shows into recent pool installations.
