Custom Pool Design: Focus on Water Features

Are you unhappy with your current poolscape or planning on designing and building your own custom pool in the near future?  Rather than just focusing on the swimming pool’s length and shape, you should also be thinking about custom water features and how they can transform your backyard oasis.  

 

The Obvious: The Spa

Hands down one of the best custom pool remodeling projects is adding a spa to your poolscape.  There are many benefits for soaking in a spa or hot tub, including the fact that it relaxes the body both physically and mentally.  It has also been said that entering warm water and then submerging yourself in cool water is good for your health.  

 

For the Naturalist: The Waterfall

Nothing beats adding a waterfall to a backyard pool.  This beloved custom pool design water feature adds visual interest and breathtaking beauty to your poolscape, and it can complement almost any swimming pool shape and design.

Custom pool builders have come up with incredibly creative designs allowing you to build the waterfall of your dreams.  You can even create private rock caves and built-in underwater seating ledges so that the cascading water will deliver a nice, and much deserved, massage.

 

For the Showman: Deck Jets

Deck jets are exciting. These shooting streams of water add instant appeal to your custom pool design and they can be incredibly dramatic.  Opt for laminar jets, which produce a steady stream of bubble-free water, and consider adding fiber optic lighting to enhance their effect.  

 

For the Fitness Enthusiast: Resistance Jets

Want to step up your fitness routine?  Consider resistance jets.  This unique water feature provides a so-called “endless” current of water, which you can swim against to tone muscles and lose weight.  

 

For the Young At Heart: The Water Slide

Water slides offer endless fun for children and adults alike.  Modern swimming pool slides come in an array of colors, sizes and effects, so take your time looking into your options to find the one that you love. They can also be beautifully integrated into a custom pool design so that they blend right in with the overall poolscape.
