The Different Types of Pool Fountains

Water spraying into a pool, one of your many options for pool fountains

One of the benefits of building a custom pool is that you can turn your dream pool design into reality. Beyond the basic size and shape of your pool, your vision likely includes water features to enhance the look and feel of your swimming pool. Fountains are one of the many ways you can customize your pool design. With so many different types you choose from, you can find a pool fountain that fits exactly what you want.

Here are some of the different types of pool fountains:

Floating

Floating fountains rest on the surface of your pool and spray water from your pool’s return system or pump. When you create this type of fountain, you can choose exactly how simple or how complicated you want it to be. It can include a series of spouts for a multi-tiered effect, or it can spray water from the sides. You can also include a clear hose if you don’t want the water return to be visible. These are usually anchored in place or weighed down so they don’t float away.

Spillover

Spillovers let water flow from a higher place to a lower one. The most common spillover is from your hot tub to your pool, but there are many different options. You can also include a wall with a rain curtain as a type of spillover fountain. These are more tranquil than other options and can be an excellent choice to create a resort-like atmosphere. Watching the water fall gently into your custom pool is a great way to relax.

Poolside

Poolside fountains attach to the edge of your pool and shoot water across your pool. These are a great option for families. Your kids will love swimming under the water on hot summer days and you will too. You can customize this option by deciding whether you want a mist, a steady stream of water, or a coordinated spray. This type works great with classic pool design and can add an extra fun touch to your swimming pool.

Light-Up

If you want something more flashy for parties, you can add LED lights to your fountains. You can have these set up so that you can display different colors at different times. If you prefer, you can even have a remote control that allows you to cycle through colors and create a personal light show. The lights can create colored blasts of water that shoot across or pool or hot tub and create a unique experience for your family and for any guests.
