How-to-Get-Your-Pool-Spring-Break-Ready How to Get Your Pool Spring Break Ready
In Arizona, rather than calling it springtime, we should skip straight ahead and call it summertime because it’s already so hot! If you’re from the area, you probably agree. Like clockwork, right around spring break, Arizona’s infamous heat wave starts to kick in.

Whether it’s attending a spring training game, planning a backyard barbeque, or finally reading that novel you’ve always wanted, spring break is the perfect opportunity to spend time with loved ones and check happenings off your bucket list.

Don’t let Arizona’s hot weather stand in the way of enjoying your spring break. Make the most out of what we would call a “summer day” and get your pool ready for the upcoming season.

Below are some of our favorite ways to get your pool spring break ready:
  1. Plan a remodel
  2. Vow to get your spring cleaning done
  3. Get crafty with DIY projects
  4. Throw the ultimate pool party
So go ahead. Grab your inflatable pool toys, mix together your favorite springtime cocktail, and whip up some delicious homemade popsicles. With our helpful tips, this spring break is sure to be the time of your life.

Design your dream backyard


At first glance, designing a complete pool remodel may seem like a daunting task. But with the help of our free estimates and design consultation, financing, and installation services, we make it easy to create the pool of your dreams.

By definition, a remodel can be a variety of different projects. It can either be a simple task that’ll be perfected in a matter of days, or can be a complete remodel that transforms your yard from head to toe. Regardless of what type of remodel you feel comfortable with, we’re here to help you every step of the way.

Get inspired by these ultimate pool designs, and make a splash with your pool remodel this spring break.

Here are the pool projects we suggest taking on:
  • Pool tiles
  • Deck flooring
  • Wall caps

Pool tiles

Pool tiles come in a variety of different shapes, sizes, designs, textures, and colors. With a plethora of choices, this customized project allows for uncapped creativity and diversity.

Installing pool tiles is the ideal project if you’re not comfortable with taking on a complete remodel right away. By simply changing the border tiles on your pool, you have the opportunity to inspire a new ambiance for both your friends and family to enjoy this spring.

Deck flooring

Deck flooring is another key design element to think about when remodeling your backyard. In fact, we believe it’s one of the most important projects to take on since it has the opportunity to transform the look of your entire yard, with only one project.

As a pro tip, we recommend considering the weather before choosing your deck flooring. Remember how we discussed how Arizona’s springtime feels like summertime? This is a big element to think about when it comes to choosing the right deck flooring.

Every Arizonan knows the feeling of instant regret when they step onto a hot pool deck and scorch their bare feet. Don’t let this happen to your guests. Make sure you have the appropriate flooring to make your loved ones feel right at home.

Since choosing the right deck flooring is a big decision, we suggest taking advantage of our free consultation service and browsing through our warehouses before making any immediate decisions.

Wall cap

Looking for a way to add the perfect finishing touch to your pool? Installing a wall cap may be the best solution for you. Wall caps are installed onto the exterior border of your pool to provide a durable, eye-pleasing finish. Also sometimes referred to as coping, wall caps are a must when getting your pool ready for spring break.

These projects are the most popular elements that we see for pool remodels. But the fun doesn’t have to stop here. If you have a specific backyard project in mind or are looking to think outside of the box, contact us today! With Imperial Wholesale, your dreams can be easily transformed into reality.
