Swimming pools transform a landscape. They add a touch of beauty and elegance to any home. You can make them even more attractive with the right type of water features.

Water features in pools can increase the property’s already high aesthetic appeal even more. 

As a top pool repair contractor in Jacksonville, we know the type of water features that can instantly elevate your property. Let’s look at six of them.

1. Sheer Descent

Sheer descent water features look like a thin sheet of glass in full flow. The waterfall flows away from your pool wall in an arc formation. The descent’s opening can be glass, marble, or stone.

You can also explore lighting to make the water feature look even better in low-light conditions.

2. Sunpods

Sunpods are playful additions to your swimming pool. The design is a layer of blubbers gurgling the water skywards in a soothing, gentle manner. Sunpods add a new layer of visual appeal without taking the attention away from your pool. 

They look magnificent near the poolside and will complement other water features nicely.

3. Scuppers

Scuppers are another excellent choice when considering water features in pools. You can attach these slots or spouts to a wall or pedestal near your pool, so the water flows into the pool.

Scuppers come in a wide range of colors and designs. You have total control over the shape of the water entering the pool. The straight sheet scuppers are the most popular, but feel free to get creative.

4. Deck Jets

Deck jets make your swimming pool more fun and unique. A stream of water shoots back into the swimming pool in an arc form via each of the jets installed around the pool. Lights around the jets can make your pool come to life in the dark.

Deck jets can make swimming sessions more fun. Imagine the feeling of swimming under the jet drop zone on a hot summer afternoon.

5. Fountains

You can’t go wrong with a water fountain as a swimming pool water feature. Choose fountains featuring ornate sculptures and combine them with strategic landscape lighting for the best results. With so many designs to choose from, you can transform a regular backyard pool into a luxurious one.

You can place the fountain in any part of the swimming pool. Deck fountains are common, but pool center placement can add a touch of sophistication to your pool.

6. Waterfalls

If you love the look of waterfalls, you can replicate them in your swimming pools. This option is best if your pool has a curved but uniform shape. With the right waterfall design, you can feel connected to nature as you swim.
