A waterfall in your swimming pool can add an extra dimension to the fun that you and your children or grandchildren have in your pool. There is something organic in being showered by a waterfall that children just cannot seem to get enough of.
A waterfall accomplishes a maintenance task for you. The falling water collects oxygen from the air and eliminates the need to add some chemicals that keep your swimming pool water fresh smelling. The waterfall can help prevent bacterial contamination too.
The simple basic idea about waterfalls for swimming pools is to make the waterfall fit your pool. You can have a small replica of Angel Falls or Victoria Falls if you have the space. Smaller pool owners do not have to miss out on the added serenity and fun that a waterfall can bring to their swimming pool.
Waterfall kits are available that match the size and stone work of most pools. The kits can be free standing models that require very little added plumbing. Waterfall kits for above ground pools are designed to be light weight and easy to maintain.
The price range for waterfall kits goes from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand depending on the size of the pool and the material the waterfall is made from. The cost is small compared to the added enjoyment the waterfall produces as well as the impression value that a water fall has on your friends and business associates.
Waterfalls for larger pools involve landscaping and construction. The design range is only limited by the imagination. A natural rock waterfall is very popular. Your professional can design a waterfall that looks just like any favorite waterfall you have.
Lighting and landscaping have a great deal to do with the overall impact that a waterfall can create. Lights that change color and accent the falling water can create a romantic and exciting atmosphere. The sparkling of light on water has some ancient and mysterious effect on our minds and bodies.
Plants and shrubs that are complementary to the design of the waterfall add a natural feel to the scene that you are creating. You can even have a cave behind the waterfall outfitted with all of the comforts of a bedroom or a kitchen. Imagine waking up to the sound of your own private waterfall.
Waterfalls are a wonderfully natural addition to your swimming pool that enhance the look and feel of your swimming pool like nothing else can.
