With today’s creative design concepts and innovative equipment, the options are seemingly endless when it comes to how you want your pool to look and function. Here are the top swimming pool trends you’ll be seeing a lot more of this year.


Hydrotherapy Jets


Who says hydrotherapy jets have to be limited to your hot tub? These days, more and more homeowners are installing jets right into their pools so they can get the best of both worlds right in one convenient body of water.


There are plenty of healthy benefits that can be experienced with hydrotherapy jets. By controlling the pressure, temperature, and mineral content of the water, you can get an invigorating and relaxing session right in your pool. In particular, hydrotherapy jets can relieve muscle pain and tension, alleviate stress, and rehab injured body tissue. Make sure to inquire about hydrotherapy with your Austin pool builder.




The combination of fire and water is a classic one, and can now be a reality in your pool design. Years ago, a fire feature in a pool was a big deal, but these days, more and more homeowners are opting for this feature. Fire elements can be used to frame or highlight vanishing edges. You can add fire pits, fire bowls, torches, and even fireplaces with water cascading in front of them. Such elements are typically operated using electronic ignition.


Splash Pad Play Surfaces


For those with children, incorporating a splash pad within the pool perimeter can translate into endless warm days of fun. This element is gaining in popularity in the residential market, and is both exciting and safe for kids.
