Swimming pool features have an amazing ability to transform an already amazing pool. Water features give your pool a focal point, create or enhancing ambiance and can be built to suit any style — tropical, resort, romantic oasis, elegant escape or family fun zone.


Including a waterfall in your pool usually involves looking for a raised area of your pool design and examining how water could be directed to flow off that area. Often times, waterfalls are created by raising the level of the spa and having the water cascade into the pool. Others are created by simply installing waterfall products in openings in raised walls along the pool wall and recirculating water to spill out in sheets or through porthole-like openings.

You can also specify the sound effect of your waterfall. Some styles push water out as a single row of streams projected away from the pool way, creating the sound of rain. Other waterfall styles project a clear arc of water, creating a sheet-like effect. A single stream of water can be set up with a classical fountain or spouts inserted into pool ways to give a gentle splash into the pool as well.


Including fountains in your pool design can help add elements of visual interest, create an ambiance of soothing background noise to drown out neighbors or nearby traffic and can provide a cooling factor to the air around the pool. Fountains are a simple yet pleasing feature that can be placed almost anywhere, including in the pool, in the spa, on steps, ledges or a beach entry, or in a pond or catch basin next to the pool. They can also be hidden in the deck or other areas. Fountains can be small, large, playful or elegant.


A fun feature with a nice mix of classic style and modernity, jets come in a variety of styles. Whether cast into concrete decks or mounted on pool walls, they provide a soothing visual and audible addition to your pool design theme.


Typically placed on steps or a tanning ledge that splash up from under water, bubblers are playful, gurgling fountains. They create a more unpredictable, free-form fountain that invites splashing good fun!

Spa Spillovers

Including a spa spillover in your pool design is a great way to add beauty and function to any existing swimming pool. This feature can also called a raised spa, simply meaning that the level of the spa water is higher than the level of the swimming pool. As a result, it is a natural feature allowing the water from the spa to “spillover” into the swimming pool.

These are just a few of the many features you can add to your swimming pool. Contact Paradise Oasis Pools with the link below for more information or to get started on your next pool feature today!
