Common Pool Restoration Questions

Should I REPLACE my POOL tile or coping style?

Coping is the concrete, stone, or aluminum material that tops off the wall of the swimming pool. Although coping is designed for durability, it can take a beating. Signs of pool coping damage include loose stones, cracks, and crumbling joints.

If your pool exhibits any of these signs, the damage can grow beyond repair, and may even be hazardous for swimmers. Replacing pool coping style can enhance the safety of your pool, while preventing potential hazards.

How can I prevent further damage?

The growth of technology has benefited multiple industries, and the swimming pool industry is one of them. With more efficient filtration systems and automatic cleaning devices, your swimming pool can come with fewer personal responsibilities and a longer, more durable lifespan. Ask one of our pool restoration experts about some of the latest innovations we can offer to prevent damage and limit owner inconvenience.

Can I make my pool shallower?

A recent trend among homeowners is to remove diving boards and make the pool shallower toward the diving end. This is often a safe choice, since older pools likely don’t meet today’s modern building safety standards.

A depth renovation will depend largely on the material from which the pool is made. However, a typical project will chip out the floors to relocate drains, and then compact an aggregate base of crushed rock. From there, the old shell is then connected to the new area by a steel grid. Finally, the pool undergoes complete resurfacing before unveiling the finished product.

How can I improve the function and style of my pool?

A lot of homeowners know that their pool needs work, but don’t know exactly where to start. Depending on the amount of wear affecting your pool, a professional from our company might suggest new concrete, stone, or brick decking to better resist the unique environment of your backyard. For example, stone as opposed to concrete might best serve regions with high levels of humidity, since this material is less porous and therefore less susceptible to damage.

Renovations might also be necessary to improve the style of your pool, since landscaping updates and backyard redesigning can all have an influence on how well your pool fits in with its surroundings. Our experts can offer customized styling advice, while also ensuring a practical application of your this design given your unique needs.

“Our beautiful in ground swimming pool was built in 2000 by Hohne Pools. From design through the magical moment when the tank trucks arrived and filled the pool; no detail was too trivial for Mr. Hohne and his team. Over the last 13 years we continue to have the same uncompromising level of service. Annual opening and closing the pool during the swimming months, chemical analysis of water samples and any other minor need we may have are all promptly addressed and professionally remedied. In short we are very satisfied.”

I think people feel like we are lucky to have you.I actually learned how to swim and dive at Overlee in the late 1960’s, as did my brothers and sister, and then my own kids in this new millennium. So many of our family’s great memories were made at and with Overlee, and I can only say THANKS to you for helping a new wave of swimmers and divers make new and lasting memories.”

The plumbing manifold is going in for the equipment and I have to say it is the neatest most professional job I have seen in a long time. If you are not aware, I am in the commercial construction mechanical service business and I have done well over 7,000 projects. The job Hohne has performed thus far at my residence is exceptional. My hat goes off to you and your staff.”
