Whether you’ve had your pool for years and you’re ready for something a little different, or you’re just in the planning (or dreaming!) stages of pool design, it’s a good idea to take a look at the latest products and trends on the market. One of the hottest right now is Vinyl Over (VO) Step technology.
This technology developed as a solution for pool owners who had grown tired of the look of the existing steps in their in-ground pools. VO allows for versatility and customization that’s never been available in steel, fiberglass, polymer, or concrete pools before.
The versatility of this product allows for a beautiful, uninterrupted liner finish, echoing the look of a gunite pool. The vinyl is strong and durable, and is more affordable than you might think. Plus, keep in mind that VO technology can be used on so much more than just steps! Tanning ledges, swim-out ledges, swim-up bars and seating, and even children’s play areas are all great uses for this product. That should get your imagination going!
Worried about slippery steps? Don’t be! Tred-Tex gives improved traction on the steps, or anywhere else in your pool where you’d like a better “grip.” Of course, it’s not a guarantee against slips and falls, but it can help you and your guests feel confident while entering and exiting your pool.
Because VO updates can be made anytime, this makes it a great way to adapt your pool as your family’s needs change over time. A family with small children often wants very different things from their pool than a family with teens, empty nesters, or those who are caring for aging parents. VO can help you get it, without breaking the bank.
We’d love to talk to you about Vinyl Over Step technology, and how we can use it to renovate your existing pool or integrate it into your new pool plans.
