4 Swimming Pool Upgrades Homeowners Love

Why build a pool the homeowner likes when you can create one they will love? Vak Pak, the leader in self-contained residential swimming pool filtration systems, has been helping builders create amazing pools since 1970. These upgrades are guaranteed to make homeowners fall in love with their pool all over again every time they walk outside. Here are some great ideas to incorporate in your next build:

Upgrade the Lighting

Create a stunning pool-scape with rich and radiant LED lights in your bubblers or spas. Homeowners will love to hear that LED lights are energy efficient and can last up to 30,000 hours. Available in a wide range of colors, shapes and sizes, your design is only limited by your imagination!

Combine LED lights with laminar jets to create a spectacular backyard show. Or, combine them with digital controllers to give homeowners freedom to design their own light show from their phone.

Add a Water Feature

Waterfalls, gushers and rain curtains are all upgrades homeowners love. They add motion, sound and a dynamic feel to any pool design.

For homeowners concerned with additional operating costs, scuppers, gushers and deck jets are an affordable option. They can be turned off when the pool is not in use to conserve water and energy.

If they have enough space, splash pads are the ultimate water feature. A splash pad is controlled separately and can operate even when the pool is turned off. They’re perfect for the days when it is warm enough for water play but still too cool for a dip in the pool.


The more a pool can be automated, the more relaxed your clients will be. With autofill and auto chlorination, your clients will enjoy their pool ownership even more and worry less about its upkeep.

Vak Pak residential swimming pool filtration systems can be built with as much or as little automation as you specify. But, if you want to impress your customers, automate it as much as possible.

Don’t forget to make sure the swimming pool filtration system is self-contained in an unobtrusive cabinet, as well. No homeowner wants to look at a collection of pumps, filters and pipes no matter how automated the system.
