Picking the Right Water Feature for your Pool

Jan 22, 2021

When designing the pool of your dreams, there are many factors to consider. You will have to decide where your pool is best placed, the shape and size of your pool, as well as its colour. When working with Narellan Pools to bring your dream to life, you’ll love being able to personalise your new backyard addition. You don’t have to limit your pool’s customisation to shape, size and colour, either. You can opt for a range of additions that will make your pool even more functional, and appropriate for your lifestyle.

An addition you may not have considered, is a water feature. A beautifully-designed water feature is the perfect way to take your pool to the next level.

You might be wondering how a water feature will make your pool more useful. Let’s take a look at some different types of water features to learn of their benefits and help you to determine which would complement your space best.

Sunpods and Splash Decks

A sunpod is a tiled space that often juts out from the side of a pool, and a splash deck often runs along one of the sides of the pool. Often, they both feature small bubbler-like additions, which create a small-scale fountain effect. You can select how many of these bubblers you would like, depending on how much space you have to work with. You can also select the type of tiles you like, so your sunpod or splash deck blends perfectly with the colour of your pool. Sunpods and splash decks also act as seating and play spaces for children.

Water Wall/Blade

A water wall (also known as a water blade) is a visually striking display, constructed on the perimeter of your pool. The idea is that water feeds out of a thin spout, directly back into the pool, creating the effect of a wall of water. A great feature of water walls is that there are many ways to customise their appearance, in terms of material, texture and colour.

Rainfall Curtains/Waterfalls

Especially fun for kids, rainfall curtains are similar in concept to water walls, but tend to be built on a larger scale to create the look of a waterfall that goes into your pool. Not only are they are a fantastic play feature for children, they’re also incredibly beautiful to look at! Rainfall curtains, like many other water features, can be further customised with lighting in an array of colours.

Deck Jets

Deck jets are installed in your poolside decking or paving, and when activated, create an arched fountain of water that falls directly into your pool. These water features are great if you want to add an interactive feature to your pool but aren’t looking for something that takes up room beside the pool, like a water wall, for instance.

As you can see, there are several types of water features you can choose from, to add even more style and functionality to your pool. You can opt for more minimalist water features like deck jets, or go grand with a rainfall curtain – the choice is yours!
