The Texas summer heat can be somewhat overwhelming, but one popular way to cope with the high temperatures and still enjoy the great outdoors is to add a pool to the backyard. A pool can be the center of many entertaining events and parties for years to come. If you already have a pool but do not think that it is up to par, this may be a great time to make upgrades to it.
When upgrading your pool, you can add multiple features that fit your family’s needs. A few examples of common pool upgrades include adding aesthetically pleasing features such as waterfalls and new landscape, add a new deck to create sitting space for your guests, or add lighting features so that you can see in the pool at night.
If you had the pool built when your children were very young and now feel as if they have outgrown it, you can add depth to the pool or even change the shape to increase the size.
No matter what features you wish to add, contact the custom pool professionals at Athena Pools in order to discuss your ideas and determine the best plan for you and your family. Call our offices at 512-914-0554 today.

The addition of a swimming pool to the family’s backyard is typically very exciting. It is important to be fully aware of the options and responsibilities that you will have as a pool owner so that you can install the pool that is right for your needs.
One of the most significant decisions to be made is whether you a traditional chlorine pool or a salt water pool will be built. Each has its own benefits, but many people are unaware of those associated with salt water pools due to their smaller number.
A salt water pool uses a salt chlorine generator to convert the salt into mild forms of chlorine. This chlorine is then slowly released into the water to kill bacteria that may be harmful to swimmers without exposing these individuals to potent chemicals that could irritate the skin. Many who have this type of pool have stated that they are much easier to maintain because there is no need to add chemicals regularly.
