There are many water features available to add to swimming pools nowadays, like fountains and water cannons. There are also many health and safety considerations to make when you are thinking of adding one of these. Something to take into consideration is the depth of the water when you are thinking of which things to put in.
If you have a good shallow end, then a fountain that sprays down on you that the kids can run through might be a good option. However, if it is only one depth, the height of the fountain will not be that much above the water level. You will also have to make sure that the ground is not too slippery, so maybe some adhesive grip tapes would be a good option.
Relaxation is what the outdoor area is all about, and so many people like the idea of having a big armchair in the middle of their pools. Along with this accessory you could add a nice glass of something cold and a good book. Or, maybe you would prefer to just lie back and float around the beautiful water on a hot sunny day. In this case, a flat Lilo would be ideal. There are so many options available.
Then there is the expense of having the plumbing installed for both these features. If you have very deep water, then a cheaper option might be to install a balance beam or dueling log. You will need to take into consideration the size of the water surface, as you will need to make sure you have good clearance on all sides. You will then need to decide if you want to have it mounted or suspended.
Make sure you set the mood with the right lighting for your atmosphere. You could choose blue, red or just the nice glow of natural light. The lighting of swimming pools really sets the atmosphere for a party, and some color changing lights are perfect for different events.
Imagine making your outdoor area green for a kid's party, or blue for the teenagers. Then changing the color for when it is just you and your partner relaxing on a hot sticky evening. Those nights where you just want to have a cool down and relax after a hard day's work and you just want something soft and enjoyable for both you and your partner. Or maybe you just want it so that you can see to do laps for fitness in the evenings when the light is fading.
The best pool gear for children is sunscreen. Making sure it is good quality with high SPF gives children the best protection against the sun and its harmful rays. Getting them to wear hats and a t-shirt when they are outside, and making sure they reapply the sunscreen regularly, will prevent sunburns.
