Is it Worth Having Your Pool Resurfaced During the COVID-19 Crisis?

The long and short of it is yes, absolutely. Provided of course, that both you and the pool resurfacing company practice safe social distancing, then there’s absolutely no reason why not. The question that you have to ask is, whether or not it is something that you need at the moment.

That said, just because there is a global crisis, it doesn’t mean that you should stop spending money on luxuries altogether.

If you are fortunate enough to be able to continue to work, or to do so safely from home, or to simply be in an incredibly comfortable financial situation in any case, then why not? If you’re stuck at home, then you’re going to be spending a lot of time in your swimming pool (or at least, you should be), so you just as well have it safe and looking beautiful.

Why Should I Resurface my Pool?

After years of use or neglection, a swimming pool’s surfaces will invariably begin to crack, discolour, and ultimately wear away. This can make the swimming pool not only unsafe to use, but incredibly unsightly as well. Thus, having it resurfaced is like investing in a brand-new swimming pool, without…well, buying a new swimming pool!

New Pool Surface – New You

OK, so that’s a little cheesy admittedly. However, now is as good a time as any to work on yourself. Being stuck in doors means that you’ll be getting far less exercise compared to the usual amount that your body is used to, and your weight will suffer for it. So, if you want to keep the pounds off but you’re not feeling too inspired, then perhaps a beautiful new looking swimming pool will give you all of the encouragement that you need? Swimming is so good for your health!

It’s Fun for the Family

In other words, you’ll be able to tire the children out whilst keeping them occupied. By now, you must be fed up with having them around all day. It doesn’t matter how good a parent you are; nobody wants to spend every waking hour stuck in doors with their children. So, if not for them, do this for yourself!

Joking aside (kind of), a swimming pool is good fun for the family and will allow you all to get your daily exercise (and some), whilst having lots of fun as well.


Some of you may have reservations about splashing out on a pool resurfacing project when many people are struggling to make ends meet, but it’s all relative. You don’t have to shout to the world about your swimming pool being resurfaced, but that doesn’t mean that you should be allowed to treat your family and your home to something nice.

So long as you are doing what you can to help you friends, family, and local community (whilst taking the necessary precautions and staying safe), then what you spend your money on during these trying times is entirely your business.
