While some people will install a pool for themselves, the vast majority of pool owners choose to build a pool because they have children at home and the kids love to swim. Swimming is not only a great exercise for the family; it is also a great way to get everyone out of the house and experiencing nature. If you have children, then you probably have many different questions regarding the safety of pools and the many different features that we offer. It is important to note that not every option is considered child friendly. With that in mind, here are a few of the water features we offer that are kid friendly and sure to please.
Fountains are always a great choice for the pool. Whether you are 8 or 80 years old, fountains are fun to walk through and they are about as safe as it gets when water is involved. Fountains can be placed in the pool itself or they can be placed on the deck. If the fountain is placed on the deck, it is often referred to as a deck jet. Deck jets typically shoot water in an arch directly into your pool. Fountains that are inside the pool will have a similar effect to a jet in a hot tub, except our fountains will push the water higher.
Another great kid friendly water feature is a waterfall. When choosing a waterfall, it important to understand that we never recommended that a child walk or dive off of the waterfall. With that in mind, our waterfalls can be built in the shallow end or the deep end of your pool, and they can be added to any existing pool as part of a remodeling project.
Perhaps the best water feature for most kids is a water slide. The slide not only allows the kids to get wet, but it also allows them to experience the pool from a different perspective. Slides are very fun and your experienced pool builder can help you make sure yours is as safe as possible.
