NO JOB TOO BIG OR TO SMALL
REMODELING YOUR POOL ON A BUDGET
Here at Adams Pool Specialties we are busy with remodels. We’re resurfacing pools and adding decking and water features for homeowners eager to make their pool more of a showplace and their backyard an extension of their home.
Tom, Cruz, sales director of Adams Pools, says the company is “doing a ton” of pool makeovers.
“Right now, you’re seeing people staying in their houses longer,” he says. “They want to make their pool look a little bit better. “People are starting to feel a little more confident with the economy,” he says, adding that most customers want an upgraded mini-pebble pool surface, new decking or water features.
If you’re in the market for a pool remodel, here are popular add-ons and upgrades. The prices are estimates for an average-size pool — roughly 350-450 square feet, or a pool with an 80- to 90-foot perimeter.
Prices vary depending on the overall scope of remodeling work being done, but here are ballpark numbers compiled from Adams Pool Specialties.

LED Light Fixtures
To give your pool a whole new look, one of the fastest and most affordable options may be adding an LED fixture to your pool. LEDs are more energy-efficient, and some can change color from basic white to red, blue, green and magenta. Depending on the model, LEDs can create light shows in your pool. For example, for July Fourth, you could switch on a red, white and blue light show. One LED pool light, installed, can cost about $700-$800.
Fire & Water
Fire features and fire pits are hugely popular right now. Pebbletec offers a high quality fire bowl & pits, water bowls, fire & water bowl combinations, and fillers. Accent your personal style and reignite your backyard with warmth and ambiance for a year-round oasis with these eye-catching fire bowls and pits. Customize your design with designs starting at $500.
New equipment may not be exciting to look at, but it could save you money in the long run, with the benefit of being much less noisy. A variable-speed pump that costs about $1,000 installed can pay for itself in energy savings within 1 to 3 years. Because of the energy savings, local utilities such as SMUD offer homeowners $150-$200 rebates for upgrading to a variable-pump system. Visit SMUD for rebate information.
Illuminate the arch of water jets with this state‑of‑the‑art water feature: Laminar Jets. A spectacular nighttime display to dazzle and enchant, this beautiful water feature is a gentle, unbroken arch that originates from the surrounding landscape and enters the pool or spa with virtually no sound or splash.
Smooth pool plaster — is the most affordable surface, starting at about $3,600-$4,700 for an average-size pool. Even more popular now, however, are the upgraded pool surfaces with smooth pebbles, stones, shells and even glass beads. The small-pebble surfaces start at $4,500 for an average-size pool, and premium surfaces with glass beads and other features can cost $6,000 or more. The pebble surfaces are much more durable and longer.
Travertine or natural stone tiles or concrete pavers are increasingly popular for pool decking, Adams Pool Specialties say. These surfaces aren’t cheap, however. They start at about $3,500-$5,000 but will add value and a dazzling wow appeal to your existing pool.
