The Best Water Features to Enhance Your Pool 

Backyard pools provide properties with a whole host of advantages.

They offer you a place to socialize, relax and make memories with loved ones, and can be tailored specifically to your property and lifestyle. 

In addition to its design, there is also a range of stunning water features that can be added to your pool, helping you to fully immerse yourself within it and enhance your enjoyment.  

At Backyard Paradise Luxury Pools, we craft fully customized pools and spas that perfectly align with our customers’ requirements and preferences. This process can incorporate all kinds of unique water features, and in this article, we’ll outline some of the best ones available.     

Rain curtains 

Typically attached to a wall, pergola, or a structure that is overhanging a pool, rain curtains offer the sound and appearance of rainfall. 

As the water falls and hits your pool, it creates a relaxing and tranquil environment while you swim. 

If you’re looking for a water feature that adds to your pool’s ambience while also enhancing its aesthetic, rain curtains are the way to go.    


Bubblers are a wonderful way to inject some fun into your pool. They’re a great choice no matter the size or shape of the pool in your yard, and work by building small water jets into the pool that force water out, causing a bubbling effect. 

You can even adjust the height of the bubblers to achieve your desired result.  


One of the most popular water features is a waterfall. Available in all types of shapes and sizes, you can choose from small showers to huge waterfall features complete with rock formations. 

No matter what type of waterfall you go for, they’re a great way to add a sense of both beauty and nature to your pool. 

As well as being stunning to look at, they can also help to cool you down as you bask in the hot Texan sun with the consistent flow of water lowering the temperature of your pool.

A great decorative choice for every type of pool, scuppers are water spouts that are mounted to the side of the pool. 

They provide a flow of water into the pool to promote relaxation and are available in a variety of sizes, materials and designs.  


If you want to achieve the effect of a waterfall but don’t have the space or desire for a full-scale waterfall, cascades are the way to go.

They’re similar to scuppers but differ in the sense that they’re horizontal strips mounted on the wall rather than spouts. When in operation, they release a steady stream of water into the pool which offers a contemporary look. 

Can I add water features to my existing pool?

Yes, you can add water features to your yard’s existing pool. However, it will depend on a number of factors, including the type of water feature you want to add, the specifications of your property, and the measurements of your pool.

The best thing to do is to discuss your requirements with your pool builder.
