Adding a Little Cool to Your Pool

Do you feel like perhaps you need to something new to your pool? Has the simple kidney-shape finally lost its charm, are the pool chairs towering with your children’s used pool toys, or is it just the fact that it seems too boring to swim around in anymore?

When you have a pool, you know you need to spend a lot of money to make it look good, so you settle for the simple luxury of just having a proper safe pool for your weekly swim without any bells and whistles. However, the dreams of having a center-of-attention pool can now become a reality. Because companies are now making beautiful pool features such as waterfalls, fountains and pool lights which won’t cost an arm and a leg anymore. Thus, many people are thinking outside the box to add a bit of drama to the family swimming hole.


Magazines are filled with pictures of celebrities’ homes with their swimming pools decked with beautiful waterfalls, their beauty emphasized by the lights. However, you don’t need to be a millionaire to make your pool look like a million dollars. Companies such as Jandy are making beautiful waterfalls which are designed to fit in any pool.

A waterfall is a beautiful feature because it allows a peaceful and soothing flow of water as well as a bold and thundering shower, which adds excitement to your pool. It also isn’t as expensive as it was before, and if you have a sense of adventure, a waterfall would be the perfect addition for your pool.


Fountains aren’t just for the rich and famous. A fountain adds elegance and class to your home, and if you’re having a party, nothing is more of a show stopper than a fountain suddenly bubbling up in your pool. Polaris has designed two beautiful fountain features for swimming pools which are affordable and beautiful for any pool.

Fountains for a swimming pool take the water from the pool cleaner line or the swimming pool’s return lines, so the water stays clean and keeps on circulating. You can either have a floating fountain which bobs along the surface of your pool or you can have the fountain fitted to the wall of your pool. Add a few well-placed plants and pots to that side, flare up the fountain and you’re good to go.

Pool lights

Pool lights are necessary for every pool. Not only do they give off a beautiful luminous glow from inside the water, but with so many options, you can now add color to your pool with above ground lighting as well. Many people use halogen lights, which is a classic option. The other options for pool lights are LED lights, which are available in basic white and color changing models as well. They’re energy-efficient and last longer, so you don’t have to worry about the expense.

Another option is that of fiber optic lights. These lights are available in a variety of shades so you can have a lot of choices if you want some drama. With the proper pool lights, you’ll be able to see while you’re swimming at night, and you’ll have a beautifully lit pool.

So if you want to create a night to remember by bringing the party to the pool, deck it out with the perfect waterfall, pool fountain and gorgeous pool lights and you’ll be the most popular pool owner in the neighborhood.
