Additions to your pool can really change the entire atmosphere and update the look!

The glitter of holiday decorations always make areas of your home look less than festive if you haven't taken care to continue the decorations to the back of your home. Perhaps, you may want to "decorate" your pool area - not with traditional once a year glitter - but with lasting decor that can add to the ambiance year round!


The first idea that comes to mind is new LED lighting for outdoor landscaping and underwater use. A change from incandescent or fiber optic lights to LED saves energy and savings for the cost of the change may be seen in just a year or two. Their longer life span, about 10 times longer than incandescent lights, means less maintenance, too. Most LED units will last for 10 years or more and have been manufactured to fit existing light niches which makes it easier to upgrade. And...the LED lights add fantastic saturated color to the pool which in turn means that less lights can be used to highlight even large areas. Lighting trees and bushes accents the beauty of the specimen as well as providing soft reflected light to the pool area.


Adding a Firebowl is another great accent. They come in many sizes and styles in a variety of price levels. They can be added to existing pools and will surely become a focal point. The warmth and soft light of the fire add a design detail that greatly increases the sophistication of a simple pool. They use propane gas and can even be combined with a water feature for a spectacular effect.


Speaking of water features, if you love the sound of waterfalls, a water feature should be in your future. From full flow cascades over rocky terrain to a gentle spa spillover or even a water wall...the designs are endless. Whatever your choice of new "decor" for your pool we can help you achieve your dream.


And from all of us at Nautilus Pools, we wish you...

Presidents from local organizations "serving" to raise funds for FBA
Last month a group of current and past Presidents from a variety of construction and real estate organizations, (including CDBIA, Realtors and the FL Swimming Pool Asso) served  their membership, and the public, to raise money for the Future Builders of America - our local student group being educated at the Charlotte Tech Center. All are in programs geared to the construction industry.

Our own Pete Coccaro is on the far right (with bow tie)
.Together they raised $5306 in tips at the Orange House Wine Bar in Punta Gorda.
