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. So, call Clarity Pool Service today to get more information and schedule an on-site swimming pool design consultation!

Learn About the Baja Shelf or Sun Shelf

If your idea of time at the pool includes lounging, relaxing, and soaking up some sun rays, then the Baja Shelf is your feature. The Baja Shelf is also known as a tanning ledge, Tanning Shelf, Baja Ledge, or a sun shelf. The Baja Shelf is an expansive shallow-water step or ledge within your pool that can range anywhere from 3″ – 18″ in-depth, depending on your aesthetic and functional preference. The Tanning Shelf design is good for one thing, and that’s cooling down in shallow depths. This custom swimming pool feature has become extremely popular here in Southern, Nevada. It’s not uncommon for homeowners to designate a few waterproof lounge chairs on the Baja shelf. The lounge chairs rest slightly submerged within the pool that enables you to sunbathe comfortably.

The Baja Shelf is perfect for homeowners that like to max and relax in the sun but enjoy splashing a little water on themselves to cool down. Anyone that has spent a summer here in Las Vegas, Nevada, will tell you that regular cool-downs when at the pool are a must. With a Baja Shelf, there’s no need to get up if you have waterproof lounge chairs on the Baja Shelf. We’ve included some visual examples of a Baja Shelf for you to use as a reference.
