Custom Pool with Decorative Water Features
in Bonita Springs, Cape Coral and Fort Myers, FL
Add your own personality and pizzazz to your custom pool with our decorative water features.
At Contemporary Pools, our decorative features are designed to complement your custom pool and your lifestyle. We have an extensive selection of decorative water features including interior and exterior deck finishes, colored lights, rock features, acapulco shelf, water jets, beach entries, mosaic accents and more.
The use of natural or man-made rock can have a dramatic effect on your pool. From simple accents to dramatic boulders, caves and grate rock waterfalls, the use of rocks helps to create the kind of serene and breathtaking atmosphere you will love to come home to.
Swimming pool lighting upgrades can be one of the simplest pool project and yet sometimes can add the biggest aesthetic and functional effect. Colored lighting and energy effective lighting are just a few of the options. This is one of the most important features for Collier and Lee County pool owners because the weather is perfect for evening entertaining or just a family swim.
Traditionally pool entries were all the same. A few steps leading into the shallow end of the pool. But in SW Florida may homeowners are enjoying gradually sloping no depth entry to their pool much like the experience at the beach. An acapulco shelf is a nice addition to this as well because it allows swimmers and loungers to enjoy the water without becoming totally immersed.
Colored LED pool lights are almost becoming a must on all new pools. The colored LED light can perform light shows (i.e. on July 4th rotate between red, white, and blue) or just randomly rotate colors. Now you can incorporate your bubbler into your light shows.
Water bowls, like scuppers, allow water to flow into the pool. They are great for placing on top of pedestals and can give the pool more of an architectural design feel. They are fairly new on the market and there are a number of different options. These can also be combined with a fire feature to produce a fire/water bowl. Please see our fire features section for more on this.
Deck jets are a low cost way to add a water feature to your pool, as they create shimmering arcs of water from your deck to your pool or spa area. The jets can be installed in almost any combination and the arcs and effects can be changed to suit the homeowner’s taste.
Laminar Deck Jets
A laminar deck jet is essentially an oversized deck jet that creates a totally clear, uniform arc of moving water that is placed in your pool deck. What makes it amazing is when you turn them on at night. It shoots a beam of light through the tube of water. It has the effect of looking like a laser shooting into your pool. These jets can be synced to your bubblers and color LED pool lights to produce light shows.
Scuppers are similar to sheer descents in their use and applications. They are simply a wall mounted water feature that allows water to pour through them, and give a classic, old world feel. They are available in a wide variety of materials and finishes.
A sconce shoots a narrow stream of water through a sculptured design; for example a lion’s head or medallion mounted on a wall. They can also be mounted in statues to create a fountain-like atmosphere.
These water features produce a clear arc of water, projecting away from the pool wall.
They vary in length from 8 inches to 8 feet.
Natural Rock Waterfalls
If you are looking for that natural lagoon feel, you can’t beat a rock waterfall in your pool.
A large variety of sizes and designs are available.
We talked to 5 different pool companies before deciding to use Contemporary Pools. We are extremely pleased with our decision based on the final results. They were very diligent in explaining the process and timing as this was a new venture for us. They came through on everything they discussed with us including the finish date. We were vey impressed with the overall construction and finished product. The individuals who did the actual work were extremely knowledgeable about building pools, and those that oversaw the project were extremely responsive and accountable. We have referred Contemporary Pools to 2 other individuals who have signed the up to build their pools. Obviously, we highly recommend Contemporary Pools and would use them again without hesitation!!
Thomas and the staff at Contemporary Pools were great to work with! From the initial planning process to the finish of the project, they did what they said they were going to do, and in the time frame they said they were going to do it. Thomas was absolutely wonderful in working with us from a distance of hundreds of miles to see to it that all our questions and concerns were addressed in a timely manner. He made what seemed a daunting project, very easy to accomplish. When we did arrive to see our pool, we were so pleased with the quality of workmanship. Our pool is absolutely beautiful – we love it! Overall, working with Contemporary Pools was a great experience. We’re so glad we choose them, and highly recommend them!
