Custom Swimming Pool & Spa
One way to create a more custom look for your pool and spa is by incorporating water features. Paul Herr Custom Pools can design and build a number of different water features that are sure to make your poolscape stand out. Whether you're looking for something simple like bubblers and deck jets, or you're looking to get a more intricate feature like a custom waterfall, we can do it all.
Waterfalls make a classic addition to any pool style and are always popular with children. Our custom designed pool waterfalls offer endless design options - from natural rock waterfalls to flagstone waterfalls and spa spillovers.
Bubblers are fun water features that spout up from shallow pool surfaces like steps and beach entries. When combined with the right aesthetic lighting, they can create striking centerpieces to a variety of swimming pool styles. When placed on a beach entry or tanning deck, they create a fun splash pad for small children and big kids alike.
Fire bowls are water features with a split personality! During the day, they are unassuming, but are a great focal point of your swimming pool. At night, they come alive as their flames create a beautiful and dramatic ambiance.
Spillover Spas are beautiful features with your custom pool and spa combo that allows the water from the spa to run over into the pool. These create a relaxing movement of water that is aesthetically pleasing, as well. This is a great way to integrate your complementary spa into your poolscape.
A sheer descent is a straight, linear water feature that drops a clean, sheet of water into your pool. These water features create a soothing water sound with an elegant, majestic look.
Tanning Ledge, commonly called a sunshelf or baja bench; a flat ledge typically located at the entrance of the pool. This tanning ledge is the perfect location for a lounge chair or the sun-worshipper who wants to avoid getting overheated from the sun or fully submerged while enjoying the pool.
The use of LED lighting in your backyard poolscape adds a whole new dimension to the look you're trying to achieve. Whether you're incorporating LED accent lighting throughout the project or into custom features like rainfalls, bubblers and steps, a little illumination goes a long way.
Slide with Grotto
Gone are the days of the unattractive plastic tube slide. Our custom built pool water slides are designed to accentuate your overall pool design while offering hours of pool fun. Each water slide is crafted to fit your pool's shape with colors and materials that complement your coping and pool deck.
Deck Jets use air to shoot streams of water from the deck into the pool. Laminars arc across the swimming pool for an elegant and fun addition to your swimming pool. They make for particularly fascinating water features at night when backlit with LED lights. Your kids will love chasing the glowing water!
