Looking to up your pool game and add some fun? Look no further than deck jets! These nifty water features are installed into the ground around the pool, shooting water in an arc back into the water. But deck jets aren't just for looks - they're also the perfect complement to strategically placed pool lighting. To get the most out of your deck jets, placement is key. Avoid placing them in areas with cross-breezes that can disturb the effect. So sit back, relax, and let your deck jets do the talking - or should we say, spraying?
If you're looking to add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your pool area, scuppers are the way to go. These stylish water features add a visual element to your pool by pouring water in two distinct ways - either in a graceful chute back into the pool or as a stunning sheet of water that creates a serene ambience. Consider incorporating scuppers into your design to take your pool game to the next level.

You’ll also want to consider your greenery and landscaping to see what works well together. Other creative contrasts include using fire displays or fire pits to play off the elements.
Water features can be controlled through a smartphone app, like iAquaLink®, so if you want to turn it off, or reduce the flow rate, it’s easy to do with the tap of a finger. It’s also handy if you’ve left your house and forgotten to turn off your water feature, or wanted to turn it on before you get home.
