Swimming pools, spas & hot tubs and ponds make wonderful additions to a home. Generally having water features in the compound of a house is good feng shui as water represents wealth. Nevertheless there are some feng shui guidelines that you must observe when it comes to pools, spas & hot tubs or ponds at home.
First of all take note that a swimming pool and fishpond needs a lot of maintenance. Modern swimming pools can now be designed to be pretty much maintenance free but there are costs involved just the same. With the aboveground spas & hot tubs, with the higher quality hot tubs and portable spas they are efficient and very easy to maintain. Most people don't realize how easy it is to care for spas & hot tubs. Anyway, if you plan to install any such a water feature at home, make sure that the water is clean and clear at all times. A pool or spa tub with dirty and murky waters is extremely bad feng shui, and will bring bad luck to the home. If you decide to install a fishpond, rear some fishes in to activate the wealth chi of the pond.
Another tip to observe is the size of the pool. The size of the pool must be proportionate to the house. The pool must never be too big, as the yin energy will overwhelm the house. Even when the pool is of a moderate size, it is best that the pool is not installed to close to the house.
Pools with rounded corners and organic shapes are preferred. The pool should be surrounded with lots of trees and plants as the element of wood prevents the element of water from being too overwhelming. This is where feng shui is brought easily by spas & portable hot tubs. Especially premium hot tubs which are created with real wood exterior cabinets. These portable hot tubs are easy to have in most yards and do much for feng shui. Let's not forget the added benefit of owning a spa or premium leisure hot tub.......you get to soak in the warm bubbling water and relax! That's the best part.
Do not stay in an apartment where the pool is located on the top of the building. This is extremely bad feng shui, as the water on top of the building will 'drown' all the inhabitants in the building.
