Installing an inground swimming pool can give you the ability to enjoy recreation and relaxation without even having to leave your property. You can further upgrade the look and feel of your backyard oasis by adding water features to your pool. There are a whole host of different types of water features currently available. In this series of articles, we will explore the advantages which water features have to offer you as a pool owner, as well as explore some of the different varieties out there on the market today.
What are the Benefits of Adding Water Features to Your Backyard Pool?
There are many positive reasons to consider installing one or more water features in your backyard pool. The following list includes some of the reasons you may want to think about when adding water features to your pool.
Water Features May be Less Expensive than Some Other Pool Accessories
As a pool owner perhaps you’ve considered a water feature a luxurious perk that you haven’t really given much thought to purchasing. Thanks to advances in technology, however, some of the most common water features are surprisingly affordable. You can scan through the many online pool supply sites to get an idea of how much you would have to spend for the hardware itself and then speak to an installer to get a quote for installation. If you’re handy, some of the features may be simple enough for you to install on your own.
Water features are a quick way to add some class to the look of your pool without having to spend thousands of dollars on a complete pool renovation. They can be combined with other special features, such as lights or a sound system, in order to transform your backyard’s total atmosphere.
Water Features Produce a Soothing Sound
Imagine that you’ve gone for a walk in the woods and come across a babbling brook. Doesn’t the sound of the water cascading over the rocks immediately give you a sense of calm serenity? There’s something so uniquely relaxing about the sound of running water. If you enjoy hearing that refreshing sound, you don’t need to venture out on a nature trail miles away from home. You can sit beside the water or drift along on the surface of the pool right in your own backyard and listen to the mesmerizing sounds put forth by your pool’s very own waterfalls, bubblers, fountains, or other water features.
Water Features Increase Your Pool’s Fun Factor
If your pool is the center of family play time, you can take that pool to the next level with a kid-friendly water feature such as a spraying waterfall. These are created by taking a plumbing pipe and connecting it to a pool return. The return’s water pressure sends a spray of water into the pool. You can get one of these features installed in such a way that someone can move it to face in different directions. It’s the ultimate feature for a friendly water play fight! This is just one example of a way that water features can make your pool more exciting.
