Fire and Water Bowls for Pools
Let’s face it, pools with fire bowls are amazing. With fire and water bowls, you can bring the best of two elements into your pool space. People have put fire and water bowls in some unique areas and locations.
Many contractors have used fire bowls in pool construction since the early 2000s. Fire bowls are smokeless, which are great around a pool. Contractors used to design the early fire bowls, so they could use propane. These days, however, they use propane or natural gas. You can ignite fire bowls manually or electronically. A contractor can make a fire bowl for you that complements your home’s architecture. You can also choose to have your fire bowl made out of metals for a dramatic appeal. You can choose between the warmth of bronze or copper or the contemporary cool of stainless steel.
Water bowls are bowls that incorporate a water feature and a flame feature. They can certainly provide amazing fire feature effects. You can choose to operate your water bowl as a fountain. You can also choose to operate both water and fire at the same time for a dramatic effect. For more impact, place the water and fire bowls in selected areas all-around your pool. You could also use pedestals to showcase the fire and water bowls. In addition, you could have a waterfall and pedestal effect for a truly awe-inspiring view.
Some people question whether it is possible to put fire features on a deck. As long as you power them with natural gas or propane, they are safe. You can use fire or water bowls on top of your deck or gazebo, as a way to draw people together.
