Rock Formations

Imagine floating languidly in your swimming pool, watching as water tumbles down a colorful rock formation. It’s easy to make this relaxing visual a real possibility by incorporating a rock formation into your pool design. Rock grottos add beauty and personality to a pool, and they’re the perfect place for a water feature like a fountain or waterfall.

We offer an extensive array of designs for fountains, waterfalls and bubblers. The Color Cascade Bubbler is particularly popular. Featuring LED lights, this energy-efficient bubbler offers programming for multiple lighting sequences that send eight vibrant colors swirling delightfully throughout the water.

This mesmerizing effect can be tricky to pull off, but our expert team has the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to design and build amazing infinity pools.
