Custom Swimming Pool and Spa Water Features
Enhance your swimming pool or spa with these features.
Water features can bring a whole new dimension to your backyard pool. From something like a simple laminar to a more extravagant feature like a natural waterfall, the concept of moving water attracts attention and gets people talking. By incorporating water features into your poolscape, you’ll not only add an artistic element, but more depth and character, as well. From tanning ledges, grottos, sheer descents and more, the pool design experts at The Pool Guy LA can help you select the right water feature that complements your swimming pool and backyard retreat.
Waterfalls make a classic addition to any pool style and are always popular with children. Our custom designed pool waterfalls offer endless design options – from natural rock waterfalls to flagstone waterfalls and spa spillovers.
Tanning Ledge or Baja Bench
Tanning Ledge: aka baja bench; a flat ledge typically located at the entrance of the pool. This tanning ledge is the perfect location for a lounge chair or the sun-worshipper who wants to avoid getting overheated from the sun or fully submerged while enjoying the pool.
Beach-Entry: aka zero-entry pool; designed with an entry that gradually slopes from the deck into the water, like a natural beach. No stairs or ladders necessary to get in.
Bubblers are fun water features that spout up from shallow pool surfaces like steps and beach entries. When combined with the right aesthetic lighting, they can create striking centerpieces to a variety of swimming pool styles. When placed on a beach entry or tanning deck, they create a fun splash pad for small children and big kids alike.
Deck Jets & Laminars
Deck Jets use air to shoot streams of water from the deck into the pool. Laminars arc across the swimming pool for an elegant and fun addition to your swimming pool. They make for particularly fascinating water features at night when backlit with LED lights. Your kids will love chasing the glowing water!
Create a romantic getaway or a place for pirate’s treasure – in your own pool! A grotto uses rocks & boulders (natural or man-made) to create a small cave where water runs off, giving your pool an exotic, tropical element.
Gone are the days of the unattractive plastic tube slide. Our custom built pool water slides are designed to accentuate your overall pool design while offering hours of pool fun. Each water slide is crafted to fit your pool’s shape with colors and materials that complement your coping and pool deck.
Sheer descents & Scuppers
A sheer descent or scupper is a straight, linear water feature that drops a clean, sheet of water into your pool. These water features create a soothing water sound with an elegant, majestic look.
Swim-up bars are a great way to bring the fun of having a cocktail or food served to you in the pool because if you don’t have to get out why would you? These areas feature built-in bar stools made of stone, tile or precast finishes and a bar that can be adorned in glass tile or beads. The options are endless.
