May in Maryland brings the start of outdoor entertaining and outdoor dining. If your backyard…
Pool fountains can be a beautiful and soothing addition to your inground swimming pool. But in addition to aesthetics, a pool fountain has several benefits, including:
- Natural Noise Barrier
- They Cool Your Pool
- They Circulate the Water
The sound of falling water is not only soothing, but it can help drown out the sound of the neighbor’s lawnmower. And the continual flow of new water into your pool cools it on a hot summer’s day and helps the water circulate, which helps distribute pool chemicals and prevent algae growth.
You have a couple of choices: a portable pool fountain or a fixed pool fountain system. Let’s take a look:
Portable Pool Fountain (aka Floating Pool Fountain)
A portable pool fountain, also known as a floating pool fountain, can be an inexpensive addition to your pool. Top brands include SwimLine, WaterSHOP, Aqua Select, and MADETEC. Some fountains connect to your pool’s return jets, while others have a self-contained pump.
If you want a pool fountain you can pull out for a kid’s pool party and then stowaway, one of these may be for you. If you’re looking for a beautiful and elegant pool fountain to enhance the look of your inground pool, keep reading.
Fixed Pool Fountain
A fixed pool fountain, or fountain system, needs to be installed at the same time you install your inground pool, as it connects to the various pipes and pumps. We install Pentair pool fountains and water features because they’re among the best in the industry.
If you want a pool fountain with a lights system, we recommend the MagicStream Laminars®. They produce clear arcs of water originating from the surrounding pool deck or landscape. You can synchronize them with Pentair pool lights and pool automation systems to put on your own water and light show!
The MagicFalls® Water Effects and MagicBowl® are both beautiful, soothing options as well. Check out the videos to see each system in action!
Make It Exceptional. Make It Woodfield.
If you want to add a permanent pool fountain or water feature to your inground pool, it is easiest to do that at the time of pool installation. We may also be able to do it during pool renovations. We can help you decide what water features (including pool waterfalls) fit in with your aesthetic.
