Installing a pool in your yard gives you and your children a safe place to play, exercise, and relax. It also significantly increases your home’s value. If you want to get the most out of your pool, you’ll need to include the right features during your pool installation or remodel. These pool add-ons can make your pool even more fun and attractive:
Waterfalls are popular stylistic additions to swimming pools that lend an air of elegance to your pool area. Depending on the style of your pool waterfall, you can use it to create the ambiance of a natural, hidden grotto, a neoclassical Mediterranean bath, or a beautiful Renaissance fountain. Highlight your water feature with the proper lighting and landscaping to make your pool look beautiful and provide your yard with an area of interest.
Attaching a slide to your pool will make every summer day unforgettable. Your children will love flying down a slide into the cool water—and you will too. When installing a slide, make sure that your pool is deep enough for sliders to safely land. Once your slide is installed, it requires very little maintenance, but keep an eye out for rust spots and loose connections.
No pool element evokes classic aquatic fun like a diving board. Boards come in three general classes: jump boards, which use springs to help divers achieve maximum height; diving boards, which are flexible but attached to rigid bases; and jump boards, which have both rigid boards and bases. Like slides, these additions are only safe for sufficiently deep pools, so ask your pool contractor if your pool meets the minimum requirements.
