Have you always dreamed of adding or renovating a pool in your home? As warmer weather approaches, creating your own backyard oasis with a jacuzzi, hot tub, spa, or swimming pool is the best time. But where should you begin? Here are five essential things to consider whether you are trying to improve an existing pool or installing a new one.

Prevent Standing Water on Patio

One of the best parts about a pool is splashing around or even doing some cannonballs. If your patio has good drainage, water splashing out of your pool will not be a concern. However, with poor patio drainage, the problem of standing water can arise, as water will collect in puddles around your pool. This not only spoils your outdoor fun but also degrades the quality of your patio while ruining its visual appeal!

To prevent this, the solution is to install a paver pedestal system, like PAVE-EL Pedestals. What this system does is elevate patio tiles or paver stones to avoid entrapment water, thus ensuring perfect drainage. PAVE-EL’s special through-drainage and air vent design make it the ideal fix for standing water.

Ensure Patio Drainage

If your patio is unleveled, factors such as rainfall or simply climbing in and out of your pool can cause water to collect on any low spots. Puddles on an uneven patio surface can rapidly deteriorate pavers and threaten the durability of your patio. More importantly, a sloping patio can cause water to drain toward your home and seep into your basement. This can easily ruin your home’s foundation. The best fix would be paver pedestals because they prevent water from collecting on uneven patio spots by leveling your patio tiles.

Prevent Freezing Water

A proper patio drainage system like PAVE-EL prevents standing water in the summer and prevents water from freezing and thawing in the winter. If water is trapped, freeze-thaw cycles can damage pavers and cause membrane deterioration, threatening the longevity of your patio. PAVE-EL solves this problem by ensuring the uniform spacing and elevation of porcelain pavers.

Aligning Pool Coping

Pool coping can help top off your pool’s aesthetic and act as a protective barrier around it. PAVE-EL Pedestals help better align patio pavers with your pool’s coping. This gives your backyard a more coordinated appeal and also improves its functionality. Now, your backyard will look more luxurious, with the design of both your patio and pool complementing each other.

Remove and Replace Patio Porcelain Tiles Easily

When maintaining your patio and pool, one task may be removing a cracked or damaged porcelain paver or tile and replacing it with a new one.  A paver pedestal system makes it easy to pop porcelain tiles out and prevents any renovation hassle. You can remove patio tiles easily once they are elevated and evenly spaced with PAVE-EL. This is important in avoiding any trip hazards which uplifted or cracked tiles may cause. Besides, this also makes it effortless to keep your patio looking even, polished, and elegant.
