Swimming pool fountains add a nice flair and a cool, refreshing, sound as you relax by the pool or entertain friends.
Enjoy watching the pretty view and hearing the soothing sound of moving water with this swimming pool accessory. There is a nice variety of fountains to choose from that are actually quite inexpensive.
Two added benefits of this pool accessory are:
1. Helps with the circulation of the pool water, which can decrease your need for pool chemicals and
2. Cools the temperature of your pool when it gets too warm.
Or if the air temp is warmer than your pool water, the fountain can actually warm up your pool water. If you live in areas where the summers get really hot like Texas, Arizona, or Georgia, run your pool fountain at night when the temp is cooler and the temperature of the pool water will drop.
