Water Features That Perfectly Pair With A Modern Geometric Pool

Geometric pools have quickly climbed the ranks in pool popularity and are now among one of the most commonly found pool designs in Arizona backyards today. Being nearly as flexible as a freeform pool but offering flattering and well defined lines and edges, some water features tend to flatter geometric poolscapes more than others. Below are just a handful of water features you may want to consider for your modern pool:

Feature #1: Scuppers

Scuppers are a staple water feature for almost every geometric pool design. The appearance of this water feature can vary from incredibly simplistic to ornate and complicated. Many pool owners will choose to incorporate scuppers:

  • Within planter boxes
  • Along a raised spa (the spa is usually attached)
  • Along walls which border the pool

This water feature is typically incorporated in pairs or sets of three, though pool owners can choose to have as many as necessary for the desired audible and visual effect.

Feature #2: In-Pool Fountains

This water feature may have taken a backseat in recent years to other new cutting edge options, but it is making strong comeback as geometric pools increase in desirability. The in-pool fountain brings an element of sophistication and opulence while still being an incredibly fun feature for kids and adults alike.

Feature #3: Sheer Descent Waterfalls

Arguably the most complimentary water feature to the geometric pool given its matching crisp lines is the sheer descent waterfall. Unlike the typical bubbling rock waterfall which often accompanies freeform pools, the sheer descent provides a smooth cascade of water that continuously pours into the pool. Not only is it a visual delight, but many include this waterfall in their pool designs because of its therapeutic qualities.
