Design considerations when adding a waterfall to your Vancouver pool


When you are planning to add a waterfall to your swimming pool, there are a few decisions to be made.

1. Design

What type of waterfall do you want? What atmosphere do you want to create? For example, you can use a waterfall to create a natural paradise, a family fun zone or a chic, modern feel. No matter what vibe you are looking for, a waterfall can help you achieve it!  

2. Lights

Lighting is a key part of highlighting your waterfall, especially if you have opted for a more modern design. When you are planning your lighting elements, consider what you want from your waterfall. If you are going for a natural feel, you may not need lighting at all. Want a fun waterfall for your children to play in? Consider adding colour changing lights! A more modern waterfall look can be complemented by chic, dramatic lighting.
