Designing a pool can seem overwhelming. There are so many options that it can be difficult to know where to start. This is one of the reasons we suggest working with a qualified builder who has a history of great designs, but it’s also helpful to look at different options and see what jumps out at you. Today, we’ll look at one of those options and share a few good reasons to include a waterfall in that new pool your dreaming of.

Summer Cool Down

You don’t have to be in Phoenix for long to realize that the summers can be hot. Having a pool is a great way to cool off, but as temperatures climb even large pools can start to get warm. Adding a waterfall feature to your design can help make your dip even more refreshing by lower the temperature of your water. As the waterfall runs, it aerates the water and keeps it moving which will keep your pool feeling more relaxing and less like a warm bath.

Detering Algae

Another great benefit of having a waterfall is that it can help keep algae from growing in your pool. When you keep your water in motion, it makes it more difficult for algae to take hold. In addition, waterfalls can act as its own filtration system to help filter out debris and other things you don’t want in your pool water.


While aesthetics may be the most obvious reasons to include a waterfall in your design, it’s also one of our favorites. You can really take your backyard experience to the next level with just a little running water. The white noise created by waterfalls drowns out the noise of your neighbors or street and helps transport you to a place of relaxation after a long day. Not to mention, you can add extra customization to your waterfall in the form of lights or different stone and tile designs to make it match your style perfectly.
