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.

The Water-Wall 

A water-wall pool feature’s sight and sound can add a sense of calm and relaxation to your outdoor living area environment. When it’s lounge time and your sunbathing, it’s tranquil! A whole spectrum of features become available when we integrate a slightly elevated wall to your project’s design. Whether you need a retaining wall or not, a wall gives us the ability to drop water from it; how we pour the water from the wall will significantly depend on your personal preferences.

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. 

Perimeter-Overflow Feature

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.

Tanning Ledge 

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.

Features of Modern Swimming Pool Design

Modern swimming Pool Design and Contracting Services – Clarity Pool Service

Modern Swimming pool design incorporates many different elements to deliver a more enticing and aesthetically pleasing experience over the traditional swimming pool designs of the 1950s and 1960s. Since the first gunite swimming pool was built in 1940, the new swimming pool construction business has evolved into a $32 billion per year global industry. Along with the improvements in the speed for new pool construction, many other aspects of pool design have evolved as well.

When it comes to the approach in design for modern swimming pools, there are two primary types of modern swimming pool design:

Naturalistic: A pool design inspired and influenced by natural surroundings and landscape features. Natural design pools often use freeform shapes, rock gardens, waterfalls, beach type pool entry, and themed landscaping (i.e., tropical, desert, beach, etc.) to create mood and aesthetics. The naturalistic design approach represents a continuation of the surrounding landscape with the pool area.

Architectural: A pool design inspired by structure architecture and design. Rigid lines, angles, and geometric shapes that complement the surrounding architecture without competing with it or appearing out of place. Architectural pool designs appear as part of the original property design rather than as a standalone feature. The ultimate goal is to create a pool area that appears to be designed and built along with the property structure(s). One major goal for this type of pool design is visualizing it as a continuation of the architectural design.

With both types of modern swimming pool designs, the pool area compliments the property. The naturalistic approach focuses on the area’s landscape or theme and serves as a guide to the swimming pool design. The architectural design complements the surrounding building structure(s) and utilizes the critical design elements to guide the pool design.

Modern Swimming Pool Design Features

Now that we’ve clarified the primary styling aspects of modern pool design, we will now discuss some of the design features of a modern swimming pool:

Infinity edge design – Water continually flows over the pool edge creating an effect similar to swimming at the edge of a waterfall. This feature is often used with properties offering amazing views, where the pool water appears to drop off into the surrounding area. It looks easy to get swept over the side, however, the wall extends to just under the water level and prevents anyone from actually going over the edge.

Negative edge design – The water level is even with the pool edge and spills into a catch basin, which runs around the rim of the pool. Similar to the infinity-edge pool style, the exception is the water only spilling into the catch basin rather than a continuous flow of water. With no activity in the water, water appears motionless and well contained.

Knife-edge design – In this pool style, the water level is even with the pool edge and deck, with only a thin slot built along the pool top to catch water, which is pumped back into the swimming pool.

Wet deck pool design – The water, pool edge, and deck surface are at the same level, and water drains back to the pool when splashed over. Gravity brings the water back to the pool rather than a catch and pump system.

Glass/Acrylic pool wall design – This design style is something akin to swimming in a human aquarium. One or more of the pool walls is made of thick glass or acrylic so that swimmers can view the outside world, and the outside world can view the swimmers. This option is one of the more expensive features build options, and prices can range from $16,000 for a 5ft x 3ft glass window to over $100,000 for an entire glass poolside wall.

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.
