Pool Design and Construction
Are you considering adding a pool to your home or business in Costa Rica? Congratulations on making a significant decision for your property! At Finish Touch Enterprises, we understand that a pool can be one of the best investments you can make in this tropical paradise, offering endless opportunities for fun and relaxation throughout the year.
Pools are not just a luxury but a lifestyle choice in a place where it’s summer all year round. From early morning to late evening, your pool becomes the epicenter of activity for all ages, a shared space for family and friends. Whether it’s for personal use or rental purposes, a pool is an irresistible asset.
The versatility of a pool is remarkable. It can serve as an exercise hub, a place for leisure, relaxation, and stress relief. Swimming engages every muscle in your body and provides excellent cardio and respiratory exercise. The water’s buoyancy is particularly beneficial for those with arthritis or mobility issues. Children revel in the water, and you can add various play features for their enjoyment and safety. Adults, too, find the pool to be a haven for entertainment and refreshment.
Aesthetically, a well-designed pool should complement your home, both in size and finishing elements, creating a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor living. Your pool should become an integral part of your outdoor lifestyle, where you’ll spend more time than in any other room in the house.

Process Begins With A Design
The pool design process begins with a team of professionals, including an architect for aesthetics and functionality, a designer for pool elements and features, and a mechanical engineer for water aeration and equipment sizing.
- Aesthetics: The pool’s design considers the property’s topography, creating opportunities for cascades, water-level transitions, and exterior features like swim-up bars or BBQ areas. Focal points are also integrated, using landscaping and ambient lighting when necessary.
- Functionality: The pool’s primary usage determines the design. This includes accommodating all ages for rental properties, establishing sunny and shaded areas, and creating various social spaces for multiple users. Additionally, considerations are made for entertainment, relaxation, and children’s use. For adult-centric pools, features like a zero-water level with a mirror-style reflection may be included.
- Features: Various features such as infinity edges, water cascades, spa spouts, bubblers, in-floor lighting, spa lighting, pool lighting, and programmable colored lights are incorporated. Seating areas with umbrellas, stools, and benches are designed for comfort.
- Architectural Elements: Architectural elements like beach entry ramps, stone veneer decor walls or fountains, swim-up bars, BBQ areas, and water depth zones are added to enhance the pool’s visual appeal.
- Pool Engineering: The engineering aspect involves calculations for lighting lumens, pump requirements for water aeration, piping calculations for water flow resistance, cascade flow calculations, and equipment layout, including pumps, chlorinators, saltwater units, filters, check valves, and shut-offs.
