Deep Blue Diving into Pool Maintenance and Upkeep

 A beautiful amenity space just footsteps away from one’s morning coffee is a luxury most residents would love to consider when deciding  which property to call home, which is why a well-maintained swimming pool can  captivate potential nest seekers, while increasing the investment of current  HOA owners.  

 A swimming pool is a rare and valuable amenity for any residential building, and  a real treat in the summer. Over the last 20 years, it seems that the amount of  pools in the city has grown tremendously. Stuart Roaker, past president of the  National Pool Management Association and owner of the Pool Therapist on Staten  Island estimates that a majority of luxury condominium developments in New York  and New Jersey these days include a pool in their design.  

 It is one of the more popular amenities in the Garden State to attract buyers.  Residents of the 12-story, 206 unit Watermark at the Hudson in North Bergen can  head to an indoor pool in inclement weather, and in downtown Jersey City, The Beacon features both an indoor and an outdoor pool. The Grand  at Diamond Beach in Cape May County not only features a beachfront infinity  pool but a fenced in private beach for residents. Hudson Tea, Maxwell Place on  the Hudson and 1450 Washington, feature an array of amenities including a  rooftop pool and a Jacuzzi, Horizon House in Fort Lee has a pair of pools,  Edgewater’s 168-unit One Hudson Park has an indoor lap pool, and Society Hill at  University Heights, Society Hill in Mahwah, and all the Trump condo properties  in New Jersey offer either indoor or outdoor pools for a relaxing dip.  

 Maintenance Matters

 Knowledge of swimming pools is the best equipment you can have when it comes to  maintaining them. Commercial swimming pools generally provide most maintenance  equipment on site; these swimming pools need constant care and are more than  likely managed by an amenities management company.  

 Pool pros say that to maintaining a beautiful swimming facility does not come  with challenges.
