Swimming Pool Water Features with the Wow Factor

Nothing creates a resort style ambience around your swimming pool like a water feature. An artful cascade of water draws the eye and soothes the spirit with its cool, tinkling sounds. Create the right water feature for your swimming pool and it can be that intangible wow factor that lifts the value of your property.

What’s your style?

The design should complement the style of your swimming pool and home. Take the time to pore over pictures to identify which swimming pool water features you like best and what works well with similar homes and pools to yours.

Consider the scale of your pool and water feature

This water feature balances perfectly with proportions of the pool

Your water feature should be in proportion to your pool, home and landscaped setting. A small design may look insignificant with a large swimming pool and home. In the same way, think carefully about a water feature too grand in scale if the setting is a small plunge pool.

Let there be light
