Different Types of Water Features
This is a question most commonly asked by homeowners looking for a water feature to add to their swimming pool. A water feature is a perfect addition to any swimming pool in creating the resort look, feel, and sound. When done right they can truly become a centre piece to any new swimming pool. You can easily create that subtle relaxing trickle sound, or the sound of a Niagara Falls in the making. Whatever your desire there’s a type for you! Cabarita Pool Builders are going to list just a few different water features you should consider adding to your next swimming pool.
STACKED STONE AND TILED WATER FEATURES
An innovative and diverse water feature that has no design limitations, you really can’t go wrong! Stacked stone and tiled water features most commonly have a long water blade / spillway that water flows through. These water blades can be operated by a separate pool pump, or in conjunction with the pool on a 3-way valve. Thanks to the 3-way valve you can create a small trickle of water, to a heavy flow. This becomes quite adaptable to an evening with friends, relaxing by the pool, or a feature for kids to have fun and play with. Most water blades have the option of adding an LED light to the sheer descent so you can create a real statement piece as the sun goes down.
Because stacked stone and tiled water features are generally a raised feature they become a great option to hiding your filtration equipment behind. You can even build a storage box to hide those pool toys!
