Posted on: June 14, 2013 by James Staten

Looking to give your pool that special addition? Adding a waterfall to your swimming pool is an great way to enhance your pool experience. By simply adding a waterfall, your pool transforms from a simple body of water into a almost-a-spa in your backyard. It truly is that “wow” factor that you may always wanted. The visual beauty, auditory appeal, and practical benefits make a waterfall an appealing option for any homeowner looking to build a new pool

The benefits of adding a waterfall to your swimming pool include:

Creative license. Waterfalls are a timeless addition to any pool. Whether you use a more natural rock waterfall or a design with a more modern twist, a waterfall is almost certainly the crowning masterpiece of any pool.
Relaxation. Imagine coming home after a long, hard day at work to wind down next to the pool. The sound of water cascading over rock to gently crash into a larger body of water is extremely relaxing and  an excellent way to de-stress.
Filtration. The waterfall keeps water moving, enhancing the pool’s ability to clean itself and keep the water healthy for use. In fact, moving/bubbling water is scientifically proven to release negative ions, thereby purifying the water in your entire pool.
Transformation. If you have an existing pool and want to spice things up, perhaps all you need is a new waterfall. This addition along, with a few other touch-ups, can make your pool feel like new. And if you’re in the process of purchasing a new pool, a waterfall will keep it looking great for years to come.

Once you’ve decided to add a waterfall to your swimming pool, it’s important for a structural element to be specifically designed to house the pool along with a waterfall. When planning with your designers over how you want the pool to look, consider aspects such as how wide, deep, and tall you want the waterfall to be. Furthermore, keep in mind that the larger the waterfall, the more water will consistently be moving in your pool. By taking all these considerations into account, you’ll be able to easily select a waterfall that enhances your pool experience for many years to come.
