6 Features that can make your pool shineIs your inground swimming pool missing a little something? Design your pool to include elements that not only tie into your landscape design, but also fit your style. Add a bit of sparkle, and plenty of fun with these pool remodeling tips.

Features That Can Improve Your Inground Pool


It can take a week to open the pool for the season, and another week or two for the water to warm up. A pool is a major investment. Get the most out of it by extending the life of your pool with a heater, so you can swim around beyond those summer months.

Water Features

An inground swimming pool can boast fun touches, like water jets. Add a waterfall that’s hidden in a grotto, or go for a modern look with a wall of sheer waterfalls. Fountains, such as deck jets or bubblers, can be easily added to any pool–either within the pool itself, or as a detached feature that provides a touch of drama.

Hot Tubs

Get the spa feel right at home. Whether you install a standalone hot tub, or you include a spillover spa that connects your inground pool with your hot tub, it will quickly become a favorite pool time destination.

Water Slides

Gone are the days when water slides came in a single size. Today’s waterslides can have a fast drop, a gentle curve, or a corkscrew for longer slides. Children and adults can’t resist this eye-catching, interactive feature.


Pool lighting is often overlooked, but the right lighting makes any space more appealing, and definitely more usable. Your pool lighting should match the tone set by the rest of your landscape. Look for long-lasting, energy efficient LED lighting, add a touch of ambience with submerged moon lighting, or consider the use of uplighting, in which lights can play against taller landscaping elements, like trees.

Pool Cleaner

Sometimes, it’s the elements you don’t see that make a project truly come together. A pool cleaner can brush, and clean your pool while minimizing the need for hands-on work. Simply empty the bag after it fills up, and in a matter of hours, you can relax in a spotless pool.
