Popular Water Features

Pool Water FeaturesWhen it comes to a swimming pool, you can get as plain or decorate as you want.  That’s the great thing about pool construction after all.  You can make the pool fit your needs (wading pool, swimming pool, just for looks pool, etc.)  You can create it so it fits your budget, you can create it so it fits your yard (different shapes, sizes, depth, etc.), you can create a green and yellow colored pool, brown and white, and you can even create a rainbow pool if you really want to!  When it comes to the accessories, landscape and lights around the pool though, this is a whole other ballgame.  Sure, you don’t have to add anything if you don’t want to.  You can just have a swimming pool, some chairs to sit in and a patio.  But, if you are going to have a swimming pool, why not do all you can and make it really spectacular?!  One of the most popular options, beyond just lights and landscape around a swimming pool, are the water features.  Water features can be anything you want it to be – as big or small, dramatic or plain.  But, if you are looking into pool construction in Stamford and you want some ideas or you just want to see what is available as far as water features go, be sure to continue reading below for some awesome ideas!

Types of Vanishing Edge Pools

Vanishing Edge PoolsVanishing edge pools, also known as infinity pools are unlike any other pool design you have ever seen before.  Unlike a regular swimming pool which usually has some sort of a “frame”, edge or lip around the outside of the pool, a vanishing swimming pool does not have this.  Mind you this is not the same as an endless pool.  An endless pool is more about getting a good work out – it uses type of current to keep you swimming without ever reaching the end of the pool.  A vanishing edge or infinity pool is less about a good workout, and more about a beautiful “seamless” swimming pool that looks good.  many people choose these types of pools if they want a dramatic edge – or if they have the front facing part of their pool in the same line with something like a ocean, lake or river – the seamless design makes it look like the pool and the body of water are one, as if you swam just a little further, you would swim right into the body of water.  Sounds scary, but I promise you, this is more about looks and beautify than anything else, it’s amazing the way your eyes can fool you into thinking the pool is one with the ocean!  When it comes to pool design in Stamford, there are quite a few different ways to go about designing the pool itself, as well as the objects surrounding the vanishing pool.  If this is something you are considering, you should continue below for some cool ideas.
