Travertine tile is extremely popular as a pool decking material. Not only does travertine come in a variety of textures and colors ranging from ivory to coral red, but its natural imperfections such as pits, cavities, and depressions give travertine its signature character. Unfortunately, these natural imperfections can also make it difficult to maintain travertine tile pool decking—but not impossible.
Keep a broom outside and brush your deck daily to remove dirt and debris. Depending on the finish of your travertine tile pool decking, you may also mop with a neutral, all-purpose cleaner. Just be sure to rinse off your deck with a hose away from your swimming pool.
Whether you want to retile your deck or replaster your entire pool, the pool remodeling experts here at Oliveira Pools can help you achieve the pool of your dreams. Since 1976, we have been replastering and remodeling swimming pools in Orange County and Los Angeles.

It takes more than a swimming pool to complete a backyard oasis. To truly enjoy your outdoor space, you need to create focal points around the pool that are both functional and visually interesting. This is where hardscaping comes in. The same way landscape design takes into account the aesthetic and practical appeal of different plants and trees in a given scheme, hardscape design considers how different materials such as concrete and stone work together to create a cohesive and aesthetically pleasing outdoor space. To see an example of a beautiful concrete hardscape design, watch this video from the Landscaping Network.

Pools have come a long way in the past few years and are now being equipped with features such as automation systems and LED lighting. To learn more about the hottest trends in swimming pool design, read through the information below.
Today’s world is powered by sophisticated technology, and pools are no exception to this rule. Now, the majority of homeowners are having automation systems installed in their pools, which are both easy to use and incredibly convenient. For instance, to use one of these systems, all you have to do is push a button on a remote or iPad in order to control pool lighting, turn the spa jets on, and perform many other tasks.
Nowadays, more people are swimming in their pools during the evening hours. As a result, a hot trend right now in pool design is using a lot more lighting. LED lights are being installed on the inside of pools to give the water a majestic shimmer. In addition, these lights are being placed around the outside of pools to make walkways safer at night as well to as enhance the aesthetics of the yard.
A major trend that is gaining popularity in swimming pool design is using fire burners. Typically, fire burners are installed on pedestals located around the outside of the pool or in other areas situated away from foot paths. In addition to being easy to use, these burners can add a unique aesthetic to the pool and provide warmth on colder nights. Also, unlike the fire burners of the past, modern fire burners are very safe and relight automatically after being blown out by wind, which means that they will not waste gas.
At Oliveira Pools in Orange County, we are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest-quality pool remodeling services in the Los Angeles area. Our experienced staff can upgrade your pool with fire burners, automated controls, LED lighting, and more.

When it comes to testing a pool’s chemistry, many homeowners are not even sure where to begin. If you are one of these individuals, there is no reason to stress because the process is easier than you might think.
To test your pool’s chemistry, you will first need a test kit, which can be found at your local pool supply store. After carefully reading the test kit’s instructions, take the plastic water tester and fill it up with the required amount of pool water. Next, use the chemical solutions provided with the test kit to test and balance the water’s chlorine levels. Once you have followed these steps, you should know if your pool’s chemistry is in or out of balance.
