We’re always looking to evolve at Ultimate Pools and work with products that will add to your swimming pool and backyard experience. That is why we’re teaming up with Atlantic Water Gardens to bring you products such as colorfalls, wall spouts, spillways and lighting to make your water features even more luxurious.
These products will be on display in our demo pool at our Magnolia office, but we’re sure you want to know what these products are. Well, you’re in luck, as we’ll delve into the products below with the help of Kyle Weemhoff, the Western Regional Sales manager at Atlantic Water Gardens. So lay back, get comfortable and enjoy this article about advanced water features.
What is Atlantic Water Gardens?
Before getting into their products, I’m sure you want to know a little bit about the company itself. Atlantic Water Gardens is based in Mantua, Ohio, and was founded in 1988. The company wasn’t affiliated with swimming pools originally, devoting the majority of its resources toward artificial ponds and waterfalls. But it underwent a bit of a shift 6-7 years ago, according to Weemhoff.
“We decided to get into the hardscape industry, which involves pools,” Weemhoff said. “We wanted to work with water and walls, bring some new designs, then we introduced our colorfalls and wall spouts.
“One of our slogans is ‘Illuminate Your Evenings,’ and swimming pools are a great way to do that. We are looking forward to working with more pool companies and contractors and getting more into that market.”
Along with the colorfalls, sheer descents, wall spouts and LED lights that we’ll discuss, Atlantic Water Gardens also designs fountains from basalt and rock columns and colored vases to help add some flavor to backyard areas.
Now that we got the intro out of the way, here are some of the main Atlantic Water Gardens features that will be available through Ultimate Pools. These can be combined to create eye-catching spillways like the one below:
LED lighting: This is the foundation for what the company does, as the lighting is what gives the backyard flavor. Whether you’re looking to illuminate your deck and outdoor patio areas or looking to add some flavor to your water features, these lights will do the trick. They are available in 48 colors, giving you an array of options based on the type of vibe you want to project.
But the most attractive aspect of their LED lighting is the simple do-it-yourself installation of it. The Atlantic Water Gardens lighting is basically a “plug-and-play” installation which is fairly painless for the customer.
“It’s extremely simple for the homeowner,” Weemhoff said. “You don’t need to have any lighting experience to put it together. Just put the cords into splitters which are connected to transformers and you’re good to go.”
The LED lights can also be hooked up to automated pool systems such as ScreenLogic so they can be controlled remotely.
Colorfalls and wall spouts: Now that you have the LED lights, you can make beautiful scenes with them. One of the best way to do that is with a colorfall. The LED lights, with their 48 colors, can allow your sheer descents to stand out in the crowd, as you can use several combinations of lights to create the perfect scene.
“You can combine multiple sizes of light to illuminate your sheer,” Weemhoff said. “You can use five 36-inch lights to illuminate a 15-foot sheer or whatever you want to do. With all the colors we have, the options are endless.”
The lights change the water colors by pushing water out through the light, allowing the water to retain that light as it exits the descent and falls down. It turns what looks like a regular sheer descent during the day into an exciting night-time display.
