10 Fun Pool Features to Add to Your Maryland Pool

Built-In Features

Built-in features are those features that are a part of the form of the pool itself. This means that the feature is added when the concrete for the pool is poured. So what are some examples of built-in pool features?

  • Swim-up bars. Swim-up bars are a very popular feature and will definitely be the star of the show at any party.
  • Tanning ledges. A great addition for any pool, tanning ledges allow you to lay in the water without having to float. Get your tan on while enjoying the cool water!
  • Custom entry. Instead of steps, some pool owners prefer a gradual entry, similar to the beach at the ocean. A very distinguishing feature for any pool.
  • Spa. Many pool owners like to add a spa adjacent to the pool and let the warm water from the spa overflow into the pool, which creates a nice visual effect.

Water Features

Water features are any pool feature that moves the water in the pool, usually in an eye-catching way. Examples include:

  • Waterfalls. Waterfalls cycle water from the pool up through a passageway that leads back into the pool from above. Waterfalls are especially popular in pools that are designed to look like a natural water feature.
  • Water jets. Water jets add a spa-like element to your pool.
  • Fountains. Another great way to create an visually appealing effect.

Recreational Features

Reacreational features are those pool features that your kids will love. This includes:

  • Diving boards. A professional pool builder knows how to install a diving board that is both safe and fun!
  • Waterslides. Waterslides can be safe and fun too! Instead of a slide with steps, consider a slide that follows the descent of a naturally landscaped feature.


Pool lighting is a great way to keep the pool fun going into the evening and night. Lighting can installed both around the pool and in the pool itself. A great visual effect once the sun goes down.
