Rehab and Restoration
Time for a face lift? Pools get old too, you know. Let us bring
your pool into the 21st century. Chris has been working with Family
Pools since 1986 and he would be happy to work with you in
renovating your pool from the simple to the complex renovation.
Although we don't do the patio work ourselves, we can coordinate
with a professional installer if you would like to renovate your
pool from soup to nuts.
We can guide you in upgrading your equipment, choosing a liner, plaster,
River Rok, or interior finish of your liking, replumbing, adding lights, steps,
water features, new coping, new patio, etc. or any single piece of the project.
We have specialists in different fields so, depending on your needs, Chris can
lead you in the right direction.
You can reach Chris at 978-688-8307 ext. 18.
Liner replacements and Family Pools go hand in hand. I think we
can do them with our eyes shut by now. If experience counts, we have
it. Chris heads us up our Restoration Department and has been a
Family asset for over two decades. I cannot impress upon anyone how
challenging it is to handle and competently complete as much work as
our staff does in this, otherwise, short and hectic New England swim
season and with our New England challenges.
We sell liners from many manufacturers, including
Merlin Industries. Here's a direct

2008 Liner brochure (pdf).

The patio and landscaping
finishes the pool. Today, there are so many more choices than we had years ago
for patio finishes and colors. You can really get creative. Choosing a Stonetech
or Granitech deck will give you so much more life to your patio area and last so
much longer. You can mix and match colored dyes and different stones to give you
a multitude of options. We only work with the best contractors to give you a
superior finished product. You can call Chris in our Restoration Department at
978-688-8307 ext. 18 or Cindi at the front desk at ext. 17 to set up a sales
call or call Triad Associates directly at 978-373-4223. Check out
www.triadassociatesinc.com to see pictures of some of their stamped
concrete, paver, aggregate, and granite work. We coordinate all of our
restoration work with Triad when restoration and decking are being done at the
same time. Consider getting rid of that old coping and having your deck extend
right over the pool for a neat, clean look. Feel free to stop by our store in

there is a need for a retaining wall. I know I have a couple in my yard. Why not
do them right so they never need to be replaced again. Severe rains and weather
conditions can be harsh on walls and, although they may just look like a pile of
blocks or stones, a lot more goes into a proper installation. Choose a block or
stone that compliments your landscaping. Make it a special feature of your
backyard. Dress it up with plants and flowers and, who knows, you may make the
Lawn & Garden Show! Stop into our Lawrence store to see a portfolio or check out
Waterfalls are fun!
They can be simple and they can be elaborate. They can be made with real
material and they can be made with realistic material…whatever suits your taste,
yard, and pocketbook. Personally, I have a real waterfall in my yard pouring
into a small fishpond below and I absolutely love it. Everyone that comes over
enjoys watching it, listening to it, and watching the fish. It’s somewhat
mesmerizing. I can’t tell you how many different types of birds take baths in
it. That’s fun to watch too! (especially for the cat). If you are interested in
adding some type of waterfall to your surroundings, please contact us and we
will help you or set you up with the right contacts.
