As the name suggests, these water features make up fountains in your yard. You can opt for small natural looking streams of water or you can choose more extravagant styles and go full out on grandeur. Whichever type you choose, make sure you maintain them regularly.

Ponds and Water systems

These types of water features allow you to have ponds or water systems (like water falls) in your own yard. There are ponds that come with waterfall systems and there are ones that don’t. But whichever type you choose, there is always the option of introducing fish, which adds a new dimension to your yard.

Pool Features

There is a lot of variety when it comes to pool features. The three main types are: Jets, streams and custom. Jets powerfully jolt streams of water in a given direction, creating a misty feeling and a strong sound of water falling water which gives the ambience of a large waterfall. Captain Nemo’s Pool and Spa Supplies has different types of jet water features from Zodiac available. On the other hand, streams provide a more calming ambience as streams are gentler than jets. Custom water features can be installed the way you want them to be. So you can mix and match and pick with that suits you best!
