Floating on a pool cushion for 2022.

Can you believe 2022 is almost here? 

This year was spent navigating a pandemic and welcoming a hectic holiday season. We're always ready to start the new year off with hopes and dreams for what lies ahead.

After all, a new year for us means new fun and stylish pool liner patterns! That makes January one of our favorite times of the year. We can't wait to unveil the 2022 collection -- it just may leave you starry-eyed (hint, hint). 

Do you have your New Year's resolutions ready? Don't forget about your pool

In this blog, we have a list of some fun, realistic pool owner resolutions that you can put your mind to in 2022. If you live in a colder climate, you don't even have to get started right away on fulfilling your pool resolutions (unless you need a pool cover)!

So please sit back, relax, and let's do some poolside planning.

Stay on top of pool maintenance schedule

If you want to swim in your pool and entertain poolside, it goes without saying that you need to adhere to a regular pool maintenance schedule. Routine maintenance is an essential piece of keeping your pool in tip-top shape (or should we say Instagram-worthy?). Set a resolution dedicated to keeping up with a pool maintenance schedule this spring and summer instead of falling behind or neglecting your pool's health. Write it out, digitize it, or set reminders–whichever way works best for you to stay on track. If it's hard for you to keep up with chemical balances, scrubbing, and vacuuming, be sure to check with your LOOP-LOC dealer if they offer any pool maintenance services or have any local recommendations. A healthy pool means a happy summer!

Use your pool to get healthier

Don't want to step foot in a gym? Well, it's a good thing you have a home gym built into your pool! If weightlifting and treadmills sound awful to you, try swimming laps and investing more time working out in your pool. Water aerobics and diving practice also can be great ways to get your heart rate up and your blood pumping without ever having to touch another sweaty gym bench. Plus, there's less stress on your muscles and joints when working your body under the water. It's also possible to burn more calories in a shorter amount of time with aquatic exercises because of the resistance of the water. So you can get a great cardio workout while also increasing your strength, endurance, and flexibility right at home. Be sure to turn up the music, wear sunscreen, and have some fun!

Give your pool a makeover

A new year, a new look! And we don't just mean your wardrobe; we're talking about your pool.

Moreover, just like trying on the latest fashion trends, you can "try on" our liners online with MIRAGE

MIRAGE is the easiest way to visualize our luxury designer in-ground pool liners or pool safety covers from the comfort of your home or office. You can see how any LOOP-LOC luxury liner or pool cover will look on your pool with a few clicks. Choose your pool shape, paver color, liner pattern, or cover color. The hardest part is probably deciding, and we are always here if you need advice.

While planning your perfect trendy backyard oasis, be sure to think about safety.

Invest in affordable BABY-LOC removable pool fencing to protect children, seniors, four-legged friends, and others from unknowingly getting into your pool.

Spend more time with family

Pools are a great place to spend some quality family time. Make a goal to plan a poolside barbecue, friendly swimming competition, or musical pool games that everyone will enjoy. Whether your family members are in the pool or tanning poolside, everyone is bound to remember these moments spent together. Is it summer yet?

Get a new safety pool cover

High-quality pool safety covers are a must. 

How old is your pool cover? Would it pass any strength tests?

LOOP-LOC pool covers not only meet standards they also exceed ASTM standards for Safety Swimming Pool Covers. To show our dedication to the safety and security of your loved ones, LOOP-LOC covers have undergone extensive outside testing through Underwriters Laboratories (UL). They are the only mesh pool covers in the industry to have earned the seal of approval for safety swimming pool covers.

Not sure which color would be perfect for your backyard?

With our MIRAGE pool visualizer, you can see our Super Dense Mesh, Aqua-Xtreme Solid Mesh, Ultra-Loc III, and on-ground covers in various colors -- green, gray, black, tan, and blue.

Our pool covers can be custom fit for pools of any shape. Waterfalls, rock treatments, and raised spas? No problem. LOOP-LOC covers will fit.

You can also kick 2022 up a notch by adding your favorite photo or company logo to your LOOP-LOC pool cover.

We want to keep everyone safe in the new year, and a pool safety cover is a great start and a wise investment.

Create a relaxing oasis

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it has definitely taught us to spend more time with loved ones and take some time for our own wellness.

Creating a relaxing pool oasis starts with your favorite pool liner, but it doesn't stop there. You can also add matching pool towels, pillows, and floats from LOOP-LOC Backyard Accents. Continue with some landscaping and accessories that are sure to help you relax and re-energize. 

Let's welcome 2022 with open arms and warm pool wishes. New Year's resolutions are an excellent opportunity to outline your goals and an even better way to put you on the path to have a great year! Please get in touch with a LOOP-LOC dealer near you to get started. It's never too early.

Happy New Year!
