Waterfalls In Pool Designs & The Benefits

Besides for the natural beauty of waterfalls, what else makes so many people want to put these features into their pools. Once it started becoming more mainstream and people knew they were able to get them without breaking their bank, you started to see them all over the place and there is good reason why.

The Sound

If you have gone to sit by a pool that has a waterfall, you may have been put to sleep by the relaxing and calming sound of the waterfall. Many homeowners say that the sound of the waterfall is a big reason they had it put in with the pool. It helps to set the mood and also drowns out other sounds that you may not want to hear from far away. If you would rather have a quiet environment, you can always get the water features that do not produce sounds.
