Installation requires extra work; you have to dig out the area of the pool and install pipes underground, add to the expense.

An in-ground pool provides an excellent opportunity to combine a pool and waterfall design. If you want, you can build your own waterfall and let it pour over an edge of the pool or jet before shipping down. Some pool and waterfall congregations are designed to work together to build some of the necessary plumbing for you. Illuminated pools are a good choice if you plan to use your pool often in the evening. If you just want a landscaped in ground pool, you can choose tasteful in-pool lighting to give it a soothing radiance. If you want to use the pool for swimming, experiment with brighter light and a variety of colors or even color combinations.
Rock properties are large rocks or boulders that you can place in your pool to break up the monotony of smooth water and make the pool look more natural. Rock features work well with waterfalls, and although you might just think of them with landscape pools, they can also add a natural part of swimming pools as long as they are properly cleaned and embedded when the pool is designed. Pools are a favorite type of in-ground pool which has an edge overlooking a drop. The pool edge hangs, with a channel below to catch the water it pours off. The result is a pool that looks like it always empties over the edge, an attractive design ideal for landscapes based around the pool.
Modern waterfalls flowing a layer of water evenly over a rear surface.

Some background surfaces are made of stone or metal while others are made of plastic or even glass.
