Popular Swimming Pool Design Trends in 2015

Aqua Fun is always staying up on the popular swimming pool design trends and 2015 is looking better than ever!

There is an upswing in new pool construction and contemporary pool design & remodel. With that comes beautiful, functional new ideas to share. Many of the same designs that were hot in 2014 are also going to be hot in 2015. There are a couple of newer trends making their march to greatness and possibly into your new inground swimming pool design we will share as well. It’s all about personal style and more choices when making the plans to turn your own backyard into an island oasis. Our team of professionals can help you do it all.

Geometric Pool

 

2015 Swimming Pool Design Trends

Exercise Pools and Hot Spa’s

Take care of those muscles in a smaller pool design with a built-in spa. Also called lap pools, strengthen your body with a new inground swimming pool made for exercising, then relax your muscles and mind in your built-in spa. There are different types of exercise pools. A true exercise pool has a resistance jet at one end of the pool that generates a current much like a small wave. The resistance jet allows you to swim in place without actually going from end to end of the pool. Then there is a lap pool with a long and narrow design. An exercise pool or lap pool has become more popular in recent years and the outlook keeps exercise pools trending as a top contender. Certainly as more and more homeowners find themselves in a home without extra room in their backyard space or pocket-book,  small exercise pools are perfect for these kinds of challenges.

Natural pools and Salt Water Pools

We wrote a blog about Salt Water pools and suggest reading that for more in-depth discussion on what we think about Salt Water pools. We’ll be writing more about Natural pools in future blog posts however the best way to describe a Natural Inground Swimming Pool is to take a more natural focus when designing the look and feel of the pool. We join the pool design into the natural terrain of the landscape. Sure we can take the Natural Pool to whole new level beyond what we have described here, however, for clarity, we prefer designing the pool in a natural looking state with Salt Water.

Geometric Shapes and Water Features Overflow

Geometric pools are making a come back and that is partly because of the new features a builder can add. Things like incorporating the lighting with water and using the extra space for custom pool built-ins like sloping entries, seating, waterfalls, swim-up bars and sun-tanning ledges. The elegant visual display of overflow water cascading over the ledges, waterfalls, or water fountains and underwater illumination can bring your backyard retreat to a whole new magical realm. Rectangular, square, round, oval, octagonal and L-shaped pools were in great demand in 2014. The geometric inground pool shape generally fits traditional backyard spaces better than many of the more complicated designs and continues to be a popular trend in 2015.

Alternative Finishes

Beauty and durability are the strong points of this popular trend. Whether you are building a new inground swimming pool or are looking to re-model your current inground pool, alternative finishes are great choices to modernize and glamorize your pool! Aggregate Finishes with Pebble Tec and Pebble Sheen have been steadily moving up in popularity and are a big part of Aqua Fun’s pool designs. Glass tiles are becoming more desirable than ceramic and porcelain tiles, partially because they are durable and are resistant to powerful chemicals used to keep the pool clean and maintained. Glass tiles come in various sizes, shapes and colors, used inside or around the pool / spa leaving a shimmer glow reflecting the water in the pool or on edges.

Digital Pool

We will be writing an entire blogpost about digitizing your inground swimming pool. These days you can command your outdoor environment with your iPhone or Smartphone. Use your phone to control lights, pool & spa temperature, pumps, water features, pool cleaners including security cameras and landscape irrigation.

Stay tuned for articles about these latest trends. Let Aqua Fun Inc. be your pool design specialist with Popular Swimming Pool Design Trends in 2015. Give us a call and schedule a free consultation – (770) 419-7119.

Thank you,

Halloween Your Pool Party

Decorate your pool for Halloween. Tips from Atlanta’s dream pool builder, Aqua Fun Inc.

To us, Halloween is all about having fun with your family, friends and neighbors while collectively celebrating the coming Fall and Winter seasons. If you have a spa or heated pool and plan to keep it open for now, we have  great ideas for the perfect Halloween Party.

If you are not keeping your pool open then let us know, we’ll help you Winterize your pool including a safety pool cover to keep your guests safe from harm. We have covered it all.

First things first, let’s talk about pool party safety.

Designate one person to be the pool watcher. Think of a clever costume like a Zombie Lifeguard and have them sit by the pool the entire time keeping an eye on things. It adds to the ambiance and keeps everyone safe.

Decorating ideas for Poolside Halloween Party

Here are couple of ideas using skeletons. Dress the skeletons up in bathing suits, place them lounging around the poolside wearing sunglasses,  soaking in that “moon tan”. If you have more skeletons, set them at a table playing checkers wearing sunglasses.

Throw in a few pool toys like orange or black inflatable beach balls, customized pool noodles made to look like sea creatures or a floating witch body. Put glow sticks inside blown up white balloons and float them in the water.

Check out our Pinterest board for more Halloween Pool Party Decoration Ideas.

Follow Rachel Cook’s board Halloween Pool Party Decoration Ideas on Pinterest.

Serve Some Ghoulish Halloween Party Food.

Follow our Halloween Pool Party Food board on Pinterest to get the recipes! Follow Rachel Cook’s board Halloween Pool Party Food on Pinterest.

Light up your pool underwater and add decorative lighting around the pool.

Underwater Illumination is the perfect way to create ambiance. If you have colored under water pool lighting installed, you can probably dial in the settings to stay on one color instead of alternating between the complete array of colors. Choose red, green or blue for the best Halloween effect. More pool illumination inspiration! Imagine adding this additional lighting to your pool and spa design. Contrast the colors or add more dramatics using all the same color.

Pool Lighting Can Be Dramatic, Spooky Lighting Effects

Use WAC Lighting, InvisiLEDOT for this spooky effect.

When it comes to lighting, don’t forget to back-light the walls or boundaries of the backyard space you plan to entertain in. Back-lighting can add that extra layer of spookiness.

 Halloween Pool Party Games and Activities

We wrote a blog post Classic Pool Games that can give you ideas to build upon. Sharks and Minnows could easily turn into Witches and Goblins.

National Water Safety Month – Tips

The month of May is National Water Safety Month

baby-safe-pool

Aqua Fun keeps your family safe!

Although you should always use these safety tips, the month of May is designated to focus heavily on water safety. Here are a few tips that will help keep your backyard pool an oasis of relaxation and fun.

  1. Never leave a child unattended near water in a pool, tub, bucket or ocean.  There is no substitute for adult supervision.
  2. Designate a “Water Watcher” to maintain constant watch over children in the pool during gatherings.
  3. The home should be isolated from the pool with a fence at least 60” tall, with a self-closing, self-latching gate.  The gate should open away from the pool, and should never be propped open.
  4. Doors and windows should be alarmed to alert adults when opened.  Doors should be self-closing and self-latching.
  5. Power-operated pool safety covers are the most convenient and efficient.  Solar/floating pool covers are not safety devices.
  6. Keep a phone at poolside so that you never have to leave the pool to answer the phone, and can call for help if needed.
  7. Learn CPR and rescue breathing.
  8. Keep a life-saving ring, shepherd’s hook and CPR instructions mounted at poolside.
  9. Do not use flotation devices as a substitute for supervision.
  10. Never leave water in buckets or wading pools.
  11. If a child is missing, always check the pool first.  Seconds count.
  12. Remove toys from in and around the pool when not in use.
  13. Don’t use floating chlorine dispensers that look like toys.
  14. Instruct babysitters about potential pool hazards, and emphasize the need for constant supervision.
  15. Responsibilities of pool ownership include ensuring children in the home learn to swim, and that adults know CPR.
  16. Do not consider children “drownproof” because they’ve had swimming lessons.
