Whether you already have a swimming pool or plan to install a custom one, you deserve to be totally in love with your backyard oasis. And at Royal Pool & Spa, we’ve made it our full-time job to help you do just that!

If you’re ready to enhance your existing pool or add upscale features to the design you’re planning, consider these six upgrades that will make your swimming pool more luxurious.

1. Saltwater System Installation

Whether you already have an in-ground pool or are preparing for custom pool installation, consider opting for a saltwater system rather than chlorine. Saltwater pools naturally feel more luxurious than pools sanitized with tablet or liquid chlorine because salt-based chlorine generation produces silky-feeling water that’s gentler on both eyes and skin.

Saltwater systems are also self-cleaning, which helps control scale buildup and minimize system maintenance. What’s more, salt chlorinators help reduce chloramine buildup — an odorous byproduct of chlorine oxidation that irritates skin and eyes — so your pool won’t have that notorious “chlorine smell.”

2. Underwater Pool Lighting

If you want to enhance your pool’s aesthetic appeal and give it a serious wow factor when the sun goes down, consider installing underwater lighting. You can choose from a wide spectrum of colors or even have programmable, color-changing lights installed that can be set to any color you choose.

While underwater pool lighting will certainly give your backyard a luxurious, modern feel, it’s not just for aesthetics. Having in-ground pool lights also allows you to better illuminate your pool while it’s dark, which can enhance safety, particularly for young children. 

3. Automatic Pool Cover

Even if you’re on a weekly pool maintenance schedule or handle DIY pool maintenance like a pro, debris can still end up in your pool. That debris not only looks unsightly in the water but can also cause staining over time. Installing an automatic pool cover — which you can open and close with the touch of a button — can help you solve both of these problems. But that’s not the only benefit an auto cover will afford you.

If you have kids, an auto cover can help reduce the risk of them accidentally falling into the pool, and if you have a pool heater, the cover can also help maintain a consistent temperature. Covering your pool when it’s not in use will also help control water evaporation and may even help you save on your energy bills.

4. Liner Replacement

If your vinyl pool looks a little haggard, installing a liner replacement can go a long way toward improving its aesthetic appeal and making it feel more luxurious. Putting in a new custom pool liner can also increase the value of your swimming pool and property as a whole. If you decide to sell your home, a visually appealing pool can be a strong selling point.

5. Easy Automation

Luxury starts with automation, and the less you need to worry about maintenance and care, the more time you can stay focused on enjoying your pool. Investing in an automation control system can offer you unique features like:

  • pH Balancing

  • Heat pump integration

  • Sanitization

  • Filter integration

Each feature can be controlled from devices like tablets or smartphones through a simple app for a customized and straightforward experience.

6. Scheduled Maintenance

Your summer months need to be spent enjoying your time and not needing to clean out your pool each week. Regularly scheduled maintenance is an all-encompassing solution for any of your pool needs, and having a weekly maintenance schedule means ensuring that your system stays balanced but consistently clean to keep the water feeling luxurious and your pool looking fabulous.
