In South Carolina, there’s no doubt that having a beautiful and refreshing pool can be one of the best parts about owning a home. But being unaware of certain maintenance responsibilities and letting a little crack go can cost you thousands before next season hits.

The good thing is, if you purchased an Alaglas swimming pool, then the longevity is built in. The materials, construction, installation and layout are backed by decades of proven practices.

If you have another pool, then it’s good to keep up on the little things. The easiest way to begin making sure you are not neglecting your pool is to use your eyes. Scan the swimming area and if there have been any changes from last season, make a note of it.

Have any of your tiles cracked or shifted? What about the coping around the edges, have you noticed any abnormalities?

Pool surface refinishing, including painting, plaster and pebble finishes, complete tile refurbishment and/or replacement and coping adjustments all might be options for your situation.

Make sure your pool lasts for many years to come by taking a few easy steps towards its upkeep.
