There’s something about a nice waterfall or fountain in a pool that really adds to the ambiance. The sight and sound of flowing water is comforting, and kids love to swim around the moving water. You might not know it, but that moving water is doing more for your enjoyment than just sounding and looking pretty. Moving water can help cool your pool, which can be a huge help if your pool gets a lot of sunlight. Keep reading to find out how exactly it works, and who you can talk to if you don’t already have a water feature in your pool.
Cool Your Pool With a Water Feature
A relatively unknown advantage to adding a waterfall or fountain to your pool is that it helps keep the water temperature down. After a few month of relentless summer heat, even a few degrees can be a lifesaver. Water features help cool water through the process of aeration. On a technical level, it’s just like aerating your lawn. The goal is to introduce oxygen to an area where there was little to none. This is where the water feature comes in. When the water leaves the pool and travels through the air oxygen is introduced, which helps cool the water. This process is called surface aeration, as opposed to subsurface aeration which injects air into a liquid. These processes are often used to help restore a body of water that has been subjected to a large amount of pollution, but work great for cooling your pool.
