swimming pool gushers

Swimming Pool Gushers

Bubblers, sometimes called gushers, are bubbling water features that come up from underwater making a nice bubbling water sound. These water features can be placed in tanning ledges and beach entries were the water depth does not exceed 6”. Any number of bubblers can be added but rarely are there more than three in a pool. With any water feature, you want to use odd numbers.

swimming pool scuppers

Swimming Pool Scuppers

Scuppers are slots or spouts from which water flows into your pool, often from a wall. Like other water features, they create a visual enhancement as well as a soothing audio backdrop for your pool.  Our scuppers come in a variety of designs and sizes.

sheer descents

Sheer Descents

Sheers descents waterfalls produce a clear arc of water, projecting away from a raised wall onto your swimming pool offering a dramatic focal point. The flow can be adjusted to create a range of effects.  The sounds can be almost a silent, glass like sheet of water or a rushing mountain waterfall.

These come in a range of sizes from one foot up to an eight foot sheer of water.  When considering which sheer descent waterfall would be best for your family, please consider the longer the fall the louder the sound.

pool weeping wall

Weeping Walls

This waterfall is one of our most popular water features. Weepers are where the water actually comes in-between the rocks and into the pool.  It is a row of moss rock boulders two to three rocks high, forming a wall around part of your pool. This will give you a nice babbling brook sound.

Natural Rock Waterfalls

Natural rock waterfalls are very common in backyard pool designs. The sounds of flowing water cascading down a natural rock waterfall will transform any swimming pool into a backyard oasis. If you prefer the cascading effect of water dropping from one rock to the next this would have a louder sound than water flowing over the rocks like a babbling brook. Accessorizing your pool with a waterfall truly adds a natural look and feel to your swimming pool.

Pencil Jets

This water feature is a bit unique. Its thin strong water flow creates a “WOW Factor” when your family and guests see it. It’s a dramatic feature and looks beautiful with a geometric pool.

Swimming Pool Grottos

Swimming Pool Grottos

Swimming pool grottos are one of the ultimate water features to add to a swimming pool. Imagine sitting underneath a natural rock grotto with water cascading in front of you. Platinum Pools builds each and every grotto from natural stone. We never use fake stones because we feel our customers deserve a quality product. A natural rock grotto will have a large natural stone with a bench under it.
