In deciding to take on a project as big as installing a luxury inground pool this winter, the swimming pool portion of the project is only half the battle. The other half is designing your brand new pool deck! But just as it’s important to choose the features of your pool wisely, deciding the perfect material for your deck can make or break the aesthetic you want your backyard to achieve.
At Pools of Fun, we’re more than Indiana’s largest luxury pool builder – we’re also experts when it comes to taking care of your spa. Here are a few tips to get the most out of your hot tub this winter.
The weather has turned frigid, and snow is piling up on the ground. Those hot summer days where your family ruled the land that comprises your backyard seem so far away. As you stare out the kitchen window, you think about warmer times. You recall a fleeting memory about your swimming pool – the sound of a cannonball, the water splashing out of the pool. “Those were the days,” you think to yourself.
Spring might seem pretty far away, but it’ll be here before you know it. Temperatures will be climbing, and it’ll be time to open the pool! Of course, it’s hard to open a pool if you don’t have one. Believe it or not, the best time to design a new pool is right now. With the Pools of Fun Design Center, we’ll help you create the pool of your dreams.
Everything mechanical needs occasional maintenance. You change the oil in your car and check refrigerant levels in your HVAC unit, don’t you? These tune-ups are routine. Why not add your pool to the maintenance rounds?
During winter, chances are that your thoughts will be far away from the warmth of summer and the relaxation of lying by the pool. It’s understandable – dreary weather and miserable temperatures will likely preoccupy you. However, the cold months could be one of the best times to purchase a pool.

One thing common to most above ground and some inground pools: the liners need to be replaced. On average, a pool liner lasts between eight and 12 years, and many don’t show ostensible wear and tear. Having a professional inspect your pool liner can help you determine its current state, and whether it’s time to consider a replacement.
When people say “grill,” they are usually referring to a large, rectangular propane piece or a round charcoal cooker. They also think of a pretty singular use: You build a fire and flip your food over a few times until it’s finished. There’s one grill, however, that defies these expectations and does more than anyone ever thought possible.
People like pools because they’re a complete experience. You get the physical benefits of exercise and movement, plus the pleasant feeling of cool water on a hot summer’s day. That’s in addition to the added home value and opportunities to entertain your friends and family. At Pools of Fun, we’re an experience, too. We have the equipment and expertise you need to make your backyard an outdoor oasis.
