When writing this article, the summer sun is quickly approaching. This means it’s just a matter of time before the heart starts beating down every square inch of Florida. There are many ways to beat the summer heat. And while some are content with sitting in their room with the A/C on, and others are already planning to embark on several beach trips, perhaps the most popular option for those of us who call Florida home is a relaxing dip in the swimming pool. You’ve been waiting all year to make the most of your pool, but there might be some necessary upkeep to take care of before you take that first dip. And yes, we’re talking about having it resurfaced.
Like most responsible pool owners, you’ve probably taken advantage of the downtime of winter or fall to keep the area clean and occasionally get the pool thoroughly cleaned to ensure its pristine shape. Now that the sun has come out to play, resurfacing might be one of your best choices this year.
Think of it like this, before you go outside during the hot time of year, you’re probably cautious and generously apply sunscreen to counteract the sun’s harmful UV rays. After all, the summer sun tends to be unforgiving, to say the least. Your pool goes through a similar ordeal when it gets warm outside. The sun’s UV rays cause damage to the floor, edges, and surfaces of your pool. While some people are fortunate enough to have a pool cover to keep the floor safe, most pools aren’t; afforded this luxury.
Having your pool resurfaced is an excellent way to recoup a return on your investment. The process involves removing all the dirt and debris accumulated since the last time it was either first built or resurfaced. Once this material is removed, the pool is resurfaced with either plaster or fiberglass. While plaster is more cost-effective, fiberglass is much stronger and will need to be resurfaced a lot less in the future. In short, it’s akin to the difference between having carpet or hardwood flooring. Having your pool resurfaced will ensure you enjoy it for a long time.
