Thinking of Building a Custom Swimming Pool?
Well here’s the swimming pool features that you’re going to want to consider! It’s amazing how quickly some custom features can elevate a backyard pool from “ehhh” to “ohhhh-yeah.” The truth is, when you construct a pool in the Southern Nevada Valley, we can assure you that it will get plenty of use, especially during the Summer. A case could even be made that a pool is mandatory during our Summer. If you’ve been considering the idea of building a custom pool, you’ll be happy to hear that swimming pools that get designed to their owner’s specifications tend to see much more use than a one-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter pool project. With the right planning, design, and water features, a boring pool can transform into your very own stay-cation destination and one that you assisted in planning.
Today, we’re going to touch on just a few of the available options you can choose when building a custom swimming pool with Clarity Pool Service of Las Vegas, Nevada. We want to convey that you have many stylistic and functional design choices when planning your pool project. Here is a thorough break-down of just a few features you might want to consider when building a custom swimming pool with Clarity Pool Service.
Waterwall Custom Pool Feature – Clarity Pool Service of Las vegas, Nevada

Perimeter-Overflow – Infinity Edge Pool Design at Clarity Pool Service of Southern, Nevada
Infinity Edge Features
The Infinity Edge pool feature gets its name from the optical illusion it creates. When viewing the Infinity Edge water feature from specific vantage points, it looks as if it’s connecting with the clouds, or even better, when there is a large body of water in front of the effect, it seems like it connects with the water. How the Infinity Edge design gets implemented is what can make or break this excellent feature, and it can be an awe-inspiring effect when done correctly.
The Infinity Edge feature has evolved into variations that are both creative and jaw-dropping. One of those evolved features is the Perimeter-Overflow design. The Perimeter-Overflow is what it sounds like; its a method that custom pool builders use to allow water from a pool or spa to roll over the edge. When the water overflows over all the pool edges, it’s known as a 360-degree vanishing edge (or Perimeter-Overflow). The pool water is always recycled back into the system through catch basins designed to re-circulate the pool water back into the system. So, no water waste, and you get a remarkable water feature that will have you, your family, and your guests gawking.
If you’re into getting dark during the Summer, you will love this next feature, the Sun Shelf. Also known as the Tanning Ledge. It is excellent for relaxing in the pool, and out of the pool, at the same time. A sun shelf is a flat, shallow area within your pool. You might have seen one before at some of the casino pools. They usually have special lounge chairs specifically designed to be submerged halfway into the pool. Enabling the lounger to experience being in the pool and lounging in the sun. Which is great for tanning.
Reveal Swimming Pool Walls
To finish up on the swimming pool feature exploration, we have the Reveal Walls. This feature is, by far, the most interesting and modern swimming pool feature. It can also be the most expensive, and that’s due to the engineering involved in planning and building this magnificent effect. When it’s all said and done, though, you’ll have one of the awesome pools in town. So, call Clarity Pool Service today to get more information and schedule an on-site swimming pool design consultation!

The Floating Steppers feature can give your custom swimming pool the modern aesthetic that people are sure to complement on. The steppers are a great way to add a functional crossing for your swimming pool design as well as an awe-inspiring artistic flair.
Floating Steppers are an excellent way to give your upcoming swimming pool build that certain high-end aesthetic. If you’ve been browsing the inter-web for any length of time within the past couple years, you’ll notice that swimming pool design in the 21st century is all about artistic expression and is comparable to any other creative medium used to produce artistic works. The only difference being the fact that your canvas and your brush are a lot more expensive than traditional mediums and a lot more permanent. The exquisite pool designs that utilize floating steppers are starting to roll in online, and they are amazing! This feature can be both functional and visually appealing, but can also come at a cost.
Some Minor Drawbacks to the Floating Steppers Feature
One drawback to the Floating Steppers design feature is the fact that they can take up a portion of pool real estate. Space that you could have otherwise used as well, pool space. The Floating Steppers create a pathway or bridge, enabling the homeowner to cross to the opposite side of a pool. Floating Steppers use a submerged support column that can vary in height; the height of the stepper support column will depend on the pool depth within the area you plan to install them. Your choice in stepping stone or finish material will almost always be a complementary natural stone or some other type of appealing accent material. Just browsing Pinterest or Houzz will yield some extraordinary and creative ways that swimming design contractors are using this reasonably new and modern swimming pool design feature.

The design of an elevated swimming pool or water feature is not inherently complicated, dangerous or even necessarily problematic, but it does include some interesting challenges that can be terribly unforgiving of ignorance or neglect. Some basic issues that should be considered whenever such a design is undertaken include the following.
Pool Shell Design and Construction
Weight of pool and equipment: The weight of water alone is about 62
pounds per cubic foot. The load of the water, pool shell and structural
containment can easily total 350 pounds per square foot or more,
depending upon the structure and the actual water depth. A careful
structural analysis will be required.
Double shell pool/water feature construction: There are two
generally accepted approaches to the construction of elevated pools and
water features. Both entail the construction of a waterproofed
structural well within which will be constructed the pool shell or
liner. The first approach of which would be cast-in-place concrete (CIP)
or shotcrete and the second of which is stainless steel. Although it is
theoretically possible to construct the structural well neat to pool
dimensions, a high level of coordination would be required of the
structural concrete sub-contractor to insure all pool allowances for
finishes, piping sleeves, lights and equipment make this approach very
difficult to accomplish, most oversize the structural support.
Stainless steel pools: The use of stainless steel seems an obvious
choice for elevated pools and water features because of its durability
and, if properly constructed, water tightness. The stainless can either
be left unfinished and bare or provided with an applied finish.
Maintenance of the polished surface of the stainless can be an issue,
and several health departments require that it be finished for reasons
ranging from both color to slip resistance.
Finishes: Tile is an obvious choice, and very popular for this
application for both durability and aesthetics. Several stainless
manufacturers also offer an adhered sheet vinyl or PVC finish that may
have applicability depending upon budget. Stainless is often nominally
more expensive than a concrete solution, although regional preferences
may make it the only viable choice. Also, some creative design solutions
may find translation with stainless difficult to achieve. Further, if
stainless is being used above occupied or in otherwise acoustically
sensitive applications, it is recommended that an acoustical engineer be
consulted; there is an increased potential for the transmission of
noise through stainless.
One of the major keys to successful elevated pool and water feature
design is effective waterproofing. Two layers of waterproofing should
be considered, one at the structural level and the other at the finish
The structural or primary waterproofing system should include the
entire natatorium or pool/water feature area, including the well within
which the pool or water feature shell is to be constructed, the
surrounding deck as well as all ancillary areas anticipated to be wet.
The waterproofing material should be consistent with the application,
coordinated with and if possible compatible with the secondary
waterproofing material under the pool finishes.
The Architect is typically responsible for the base waterproofing system. A drain or drains should be provided at the lowest point at the structural or primary level of waterproofing to carry away leakage and relieve hydrostatic pressure, if any. This drain should daylight at some point, or be provided with a sight-glass, in order to monitor leakage.
With a stainless solution, this second level of waterproofing is the
stainless steel shell itself. No other waterproofing should be
With a concrete solution, a waterproofing system will be specified
that will maximize the compatibility between substrate and finishes.
Leaks, although rare, remain a possibility. Ideally Piping or
conduit should be located in a drained containment area, if not
possible, the use of drip pans under the pool and piping may be
Ample overflow and/or deck drainage capacity at least equal to the
makeup water flow should be provided. On high rise applications, the
potential for sway should be considered and appropriate measures taken
to contain any consequent slosh.
In summary, successful elevated pools and/or water feature design
depends upon meeting the inherent challenges and demands of structure,
appropriate material selection, waterproofing, drainage and acoustical
Elevated Swimming Pool Design Comments by Clarity Pool Service
We decided to repost this article here at the Clarity Pool Service website due to the unique and downright interesting nature, as custom swimming pool contractors, we’ve yet to have the opportunity to build a high rise or elevated swimming pool design. It piques our interest, though, and if ever offered the chance, well with great power comes great responsibility, and that is all on the subject of building a project such as a highrise custom swimming pool. We want to thank Staci Pye of the Hydro+Logic Blog, and we appreciate the article as well as the insight on this complicated subject.

Summer is almost over, and here at Clarity Pool Services, we want to ensure we are doing the best when it comes to maintaining your pool throughout the seasons. Although, sometimes there may be signals that your pool may need a complete pool renovation during your hibernation until next summer. We understand it’s easy to fall back into the comfort of our homes when summer is over and forget about our pools until it gets warm again but it’s important to understand that consistency is key to being attentive to what your pool might need, or may be able to become before you take your first dip again.
Reassuring your pool is safe to use is the top of the list when considering a pool renovation. The last thing you want to worry about is that cracked or chipped piece of concrete that is falling apart along the edge of your pool. This can be considered a safety hazard if not taken care of immediately. We want you to have fun at your summer party, and not worry if someone is going to get hurt because of pool tiles or plasters coming apart. Taking a good look at your pool, and considering every inch of it before use should become habitual. If you find yourself having to worry about this issue constantly, it’s probably time to consider a pool renovation.
Another important aspect to your pool being optimal for use is paying attention to its filter system and energy-efficient pump. This is also important to take into account as you want to ensure any bacteria or environmental aggressors are taken care of before anyone takes a swim. This is to prevent anyone from getting sick, or having any type of reaction(s) due to being exposed to these. This is a modern-day feature that needs upkeep if you and everyone else you want to invite wants to fully enjoy the use of your pool.
Extending on the topic of modern-day safety is noticing the construction of your pool. Does it have an extended shallow end or an enclosed fence? If not, renovating your pool to fit this is a good idea if you want others to feel safe along any part of your pool. Having an extended shallow end keeps it easier for any level of swimmers to have fun, and having a fence around your pool provides safety for any animals or infants who may be at risk without it.
We do want to mention, sometimes considering a renovation is just because you overall need it. You may feel that your design has outlasted itself, or may not be what you need for its use anymore. All of this and per above are perfect reasons to consider a pool renovation. At Clarity Pool Services, we do the best in providing certainty that making the decision to renovate your pool is in your favor, and we want to be apart of that evolution. We encourage you to check out our page that is full of ideas on how you may want to alter your pool. We are here to support any decisions of yours, and want to provide answers to any questions you may! Please contact (702) 839-9265 to get started!
Getting to Know the Custom Perimeter-Overflow Swimming Pool Design Concept
Swimming Pool Perimeter-Overflow Technical Specifications
A Perimeter-Overflow, also known as Knife-Edge swimming pool design, is an elegant way to modernize your outdoor living area. This pool design method should only get implemented by a skilled and experienced pool design and construction professionals. The Perimeter-Overflow incorporates the infinity edge design concept into the entire perimeter of the swimming pool, which gives the overall pool design nothing short of spectacular results. The Perimeter-Overflow pool design pumps a thin sheet of water over and into a built-in catch basin or hidden trough built into and around the entire poolscape. The water in the catch basin gets recirculated back into the pool and over the perimeter in a cyclical process. You can imagine the edge of your pool, which has a built-in waterfall that is small enough to walk over. The result is extraordinary, modern, and will have your guests talking about how amazing your swimming pool is to all their friends. The Perimeter-Overflow gives your swimming pool a mirror-like aesthetic that’s reflective and can only be described as “Magical.” There’s nothing like seeing a properly executed perimeter-overflow pool design for the first time.

Shallow Swimming Pool Perimeter-Overflow Water Connecting Channel Technical Cut-Away Graphic
In this swimming pool design reference by Clarity Pool Service, we implemented multiple vanishing edge or perimeter-overflow techniques to achieve this fantastic pool design. The project was a high-end custom home located in the Summit Club within the Summerlin community. One unique feature was the pool connecting channel. Not only does it serve the purpose of joining the primary pool and the courtyard, it also serves as an excellent and appealing feature that lends to the overall design aesthetic.
