Picture this. You’ve just returned home from a long day at work. After navigating rush hour and the day’s stresses, you grab a cold beverage from the fridge and slip on your favorite swimsuit. With a book in hand and sunglasses on, you’re whisked away by the soothing sounds of running water as you decompress poolside.

Poolside Water Features For The Ultimate Ambiance

Aqua Blue Pools’ diverse portfolio of residential and commercial projects has given us insight into what makes the perfect pool, and the sounds of running water perfectly complement this atmosphere. Water features are a favorite tool for pool owners looking to drown out unwanted noise while creating an unforgettable ambiance. 

1. Waterfalls

Waterfalls are timeless features that effortlessly infuse nature’s magic into your oasis. The gentle cascade creates a visually stunning curtain and calm atmosphere, substituting stress for serenity. Whether you opt for a dramatic rock waterfall or a subtle sheet descent, the sight and sound of falling water will undoubtedly soothe your senses.

2. Spillways

Spillways introduce a rhythmic cadence to your experience. These architectural marvels elegantly channel water from one level to another, creating a seamless flow. Spillways serve as striking focal points that enhance the visual appeal of your pool and can be integrated into walls, raised bond beams or other design elements.

3. Scuppers

Scuppers offer a sophisticated yet functional touch to your pool design. These subtle water features are often incorporated into design elements (raised walls, raised spas, raised planters, etc.) from which water gracefully spills into the pool below. These unique elements merge architectural artistry with aquatic elegance, creating a visually stunning focal point that seamlessly integrates into your surroundings.

4. Deck Jets

Adding deck jets to your pool design can introduce an element of playful polish. These features propel graceful arcs of water from the pool’s edge to create a captivating display of light and movement. Deck jets add a dynamic element to your poolside and create a mesmerizing spectacle, especially when illuminated with colorful LED lighting during evening swims. 

5. Fountains

Spray fountains and bubbler fountains bring a new dimension to your poolside space. Spray fountains sculpt arcs of water, shimmering in the sunlight, while bubbler fountains delicately break the pool’s surface with gentle jets. Bubbler fountains have become a popular choice for residential and commercial pools alike, as they are often integrated into tanning ledges, such as those of zero-entry pools, to indicate shallowness.
