If you already have a pool in your yard or want to enhance your existing pool, a waterfall is a great idea. Whether you prefer a Tahitian waterfall or want a pool with a rock waterfall and slide, No Limit Pools can walk you through the construction process and provide design inspiration.
Here are a few construction tips to ensure that your new waterfall is one of the best parts of your new or renovated pool.
Match the Waterfall with the Landscape
When you are building a waterfall into pool spaces, the shape, and size of the waterfall need to coordinate with the rest of the surrounding landscape. If you want the waterfall to look as natural as possible, do not build it too high if the rest of your yard is flat. The waterfall will appear more natural if a small hill or ledge is formed around it. Be sure that the size of the waterfall matches the size of the pool and the size of your yard. A waterfall that is too big will take up too much space and may look overwhelming. If the waterfall is too large, you may not be able to swim the full distance of the pool comfortably.
Build the Waterfall in the Right Place
Whether you’re building a rock waterfall pool structure or want the waterfall to have a more abstract appearance, it’s best to construct the waterfall close to an electrical outlet in your backyard. The waterfall skimmer, in particular, should be near an outlet. The skimmer sends the water back to the top of the waterfall so that the water will flow down the waterfall structure. Skimmers need electrical power, and if the skimmer is no more than 10-12 feet from an outlet, so the skimmer cord will not run across your yard.
Think About Water Conservation
Financially it will be better if the waterfall is not constructed in an elevated section of your yard. Your water pump will have to work harder if the waterfall is uphill, which means you will be using more gallons per hour. A waterfall on level or slightly elevated ground could save water and help you stay within your pool maintenance budget. Talk to your contractor about getting a quality water pump that is easy to read and operate, so you will know how much water you are using.
