Pool waterfalls are a very popular addition to many backyard pools. They are built to flow down into your swimming pool and create the "endless flow" look. A lot of pools nowadays also have lights around the waterfall to give the water a shimmering effect as the water flow hits the pool.
Pool waterfalls are generally thought of as very expensive and only obtainable by people that are willing and able to pay a small fortune for it. As expensive as you may think they are, pool waterfalls are becoming more and more popular every day.
Various Types of Pool Waterfalls
Pool waterfalls are usually made of different variations and styles of fake rock and are created to look as close to a real waterfall as possible.
Here are some of the most popular types of pool waterfalls:
- Natural Rock Waterfall
- Ledge Waterfall
- Flagstone Waterfall
- Boulder Waterfall
Natural Rock Waterfall
The natural rock style is exactly like it sounds: it's designed to look like a natural rock formation from which water trickles out of into your pool.
The ledge style waterfall has a ledge that protrudes over the pool. The water pours into your pool and looks like a see-through sheet.
With a flagstone waterfall, you will generally see a small pond-looking pool of water and/or a hot tub that is built above the pool and leaks a water sheet similar to the ledge waterfall into the swimming pool.
The boulder waterfall is made of fake rocks that are made to look like two or three fairly large stacked boulders. Water falls out of the boulders into the pool.
As you see, there are many types of pool waterfalls, and most are a lot less expensive than you would think.
