Pool Fountains and Water Features

Pool Fountains and Water Features

In the world of commercial swimming pools, water features have emerged as an essential element that adds elegance, serenity, sophistication, and a dramatic effect to any location. Do you love the soothing sounds of beautiful waterfalls, look forward to relaxing in a spillover spa, or have fun splashing in a water jet stream with the kids? No matter how you enjoy these modern pool features, there’s no doubt that swimming pools that have them stand out from the rest.

Whether it’s a series of cascading waterfalls, a serene garden pond, or a set of fun deck jets, pool water features not only enhance aesthetic appeal but also create a relaxing and tranquil environment. However, installing, maintaining, and repairing these features when something goes wrong can be quite a challenge — especially if you have plenty of other property management tasks on your plate.

The installation of swimming pool fountains and water features is a task best left to professionals. Here at Bennington, our experts are highly skilled and experienced in installing a wide array of water features that can transform your swimming pool into a stunning oasis, whether you prefer a contemporary design or a throwback to yesteryear.

Then, it’s time to open your pool to the delight of patrons and guests alike!

Pool Feature Maintenance

Just like any other component of your swimming pool, water features also require regular maintenance to keep them functioning optimally. This includes routine cleaning to remove dirt, debris, and algae, checking and adjusting pool water levels, inspecting for leaks, and servicing the pump and other mechanical parts. At Bennington Pool Services, we offer comprehensive pool maintenance services that ensure your water features continue to add beauty and value to your swimming pool.

Pressure Testing

To perform a pressure test, the first step is to isolate the pool’s plumbing system. This is typically done by sealing off the skimmer(s) and return lines. Then, with the plumbing system isolated, a specialized pressure-testing device is connected to the system. This device introduces pressurized air or water into the plumbing lines, increasing the pressure within the system beyond its normal operating levels. Once the system is pressurized, our leak detection service professionals closely monitor the pool’s pressure levels. If there are no pool leaks present, the pressure should remain stable. However, if there are water leaks within the pool, the pressure will gradually decrease.

Pool Feature Repair

Although all of the pool fountains and water features we install are designed to be robust and durable, they are not immune to wear and tear. Over time, we may need to provide repair or install replacement pool feature components so that you can continue enjoying your space. We take special care to perform all pool repairs promptly so as to minimize downtime for your business. If your pool fountain, waterfalls, or other features appear to be no longer functioning the way they should, call our pool builders ASAP and we can assist you, whether you need pool leak detection services , liner repair, or anything else relevant to your pool.

Types of Water Features Popular in Commercial Swimming Pools

Water features are a fantastic way to enhance the aesthetic appeal and functionality of modern commercial swimming pools. They add an element of luxury and can create a relaxing, resort-like atmosphere. Here are some popular types of water features often seen in modern commercial pools and spas:


Bubblers are small jets installed in the pool floor that produce bubbles, creating a fun and visually appealing feature. They’re often installed in shallow surface areas of the pool, making them perfect for children’s play areas or sun shelves. However, the shallow end is not the only place for bubblers. Some pool owners choose to place them along pool walls as well, leading to a fun and exciting stream effect.


Spillways create a cascading water effect from one body of water into another, often from a spa area or raised wall into the main pool. As the water cascades into the chosen pool area, it enters a catch basin where it is cycled back up to its original location.

Spillover Spas

A spillover spa is a hot tub integrated into the pool design that spills over into the main pool, creating a waterfall effect. It’s a popular choice for modern commercial pools and spas as it offers a space for relaxation and hydrotherapy. After all, you can’t beat floating in a pleasantly warm pool or spa as water cascades gently in the background!

Rain Curtains

Often paired with a pergola roof, rain curtain generates a curtain of droplets falling from a height into the pool, creating a calming sound and mesmerizing visual effect. Rain curtain features are more popular in outdoor pools, although these modern additions are sometimes installed indoors.

Deck Jets

Deck jets are installed into the pool deck and shoot streams of water into the pool or spa. Some deck jets are stationary, while others can be adjusted to create different water effects and pressure settings. They also help move air throughout the pool, preventing stagnant areas during warm weather.


Waterfalls are a classic water feature that adds a naturalistic element to any pool or spa. They can be designed with natural rocks or modern, sleek lines. Sheer descent waterfalls produce a clear, thin sheet of water that descends straight down from a height (hence the name “sheer descents”). No matter what shape or size of waterfall you decide on, they provide a modern, sophisticated look to any pool or spa area and help visitors relax as water cascades peacefully down this beautiful feature.


Fountain features are versatile and can range from simple, single-tier units to elaborate, multi-tiered styles with lights for night usage. They add movement and sound to a spa or pool environment, enhancing the overall ambience and landscape.


These fountain features combine the aesthetic of architecture with the flow of water, often used as a focal point in a commercial landscape due to their artistic appeal. They are often lit up at night to show off the appeal of a space and are available in countless shapes and styles.


Floating fountain features are installed on the water surface and can be moved around. These modern additions provide dynamic visual appeal and can also help aerate the water in the pool or spa. We can help you find the perfect place for your floating fountain!

Signs Your Swimming Pool Fountains and Water Features Need Repair

It’s important to be vigilant about certain indications that indicate your swimming pool water features need repair. Different types of pool water features may display different behaviors, but overall, here are some warning signs to watch out for:

Structural Damage

One of the most apparent signs of potential issues with your pool water features is visible structural damage. Cracks and fissures can often indicate hidden leaks. These damages can lead to pool water loss, structural instability, and even compromise the aesthetics of your water feature. Additionally, loose tiles and cracks in the surrounding pool deck can also suggest underlying problems.

Visible Signs of Wear and Tear

As swimming pool water features age, they naturally begin to wear down. If you notice visible signs of wear and tear, such as discoloration, rusting, or uneven water flow, it might be time for repair or replacement.

Water Level Fluctuations

A sudden or significant decrease in your pool’s water level could be a sign of a leak within your water feature. While some water loss is normal due to evaporation and splash-out, a drastic reduction in water level, especially when the swimming pool is not in use, should raise a red flag.

Low Water Pressure

Low water pressure is another common sign of potential issues with your pool’s water features. Insufficient power supply or problems with the plumbing system can result in low water pressure. If water flows from your deck jets at a slower pace than usual or you’ve noticed your pool’s waterfalls running at a trickle, it’s time to call us for assistance.

Unexplained Increase in Water Bills

Leaks in your pool’s water features can lead to an unexplained increase in your water bills. If you notice a spike in your water usage without any substantial change in your watering habits, it might be due to a leak in your swimming pool or its water features.

Frequent Refilling

If your fountain or other pool water feature requires frequent refilling, it’s likely losing water faster than it should. This could be due to leaks or cracks in the fixture (or swimming pool itself) that are allowing water to escape.

Algae Buildup

Excessive algae on your waterfall surface or any other pool water feature can be another sign of a hidden leak. Leaks can create a damp surrounding environment that is conducive to algae growth. If you notice an unusual amount of algae buildup on a water feature, on your pool decking, or elsewhere in your pool environment, it might be time to call in the professionals.

It’s essential to be vigilant and proactive when it comes to maintaining your pool’s water features. Regular inspections can help detect potential issues early and prevent them from escalating into more extensive, costly pool repairs. If you notice any of these signs, don’t hesitate to contact an expert at Bennington Pool Services for a thorough evaluation and professional service.
