Special Effects

Special effects heighten the senses of sight and sound. California Waters transforms water into a performance using lighting, music, and timing, entertaining visitors and encouraging them to enjoy, linger and return to your location.

Special effects combined with a beautiful water feature is always a huge crowd-pleaser. People flock to these displays to see the water come to life in a spectacular way. Special effects heighten the senses of sight and sound and present more than just a water feature, but a memorable experience.

Water features can be transformed into a performance with the use of lighting, music and effects show controls, entertaining visitors at your retail centers, hotels, promenades, amusement parks, and any other type of commercial properties where your goal is to create patron gravity and encourage them to stay at your location.

California Waters’ in-house team of designers and engineers will consult with you about your special effects water feature needs and goals, and present you with unique and practical options from which to choose. All special effects elements are installed by our certified and experienced technicians.

“My biggest concern that I had before hiring California Waters was the extensive excavation and underground scope included in this project.There were a few hiccups early in the underground excavation/shoring which California Waters owned. After that, the underground went in pretty smooth.  California Waters also provided very valuable knowledge of the systems and helped the design team figure out issues. The most positive aspect of the project was that the area of the fountain was very congested and it was great to see that California Waters was willing to work around others to meet the schedule. Yes. Fulcrum Construction would recommend California Waters to other Owners and GCs. California Waters maintains a professional attitude and acts as a partner throughout the process.”
