what type of pump/fountain head do you use for this effect? Is the water recirculating from the pool?

Holgan Land Surveying, PC
These are called sheer decents, and yes, they are recirculating. You will probably need a separate pump for these so that you can continue to use your regular pump to filter the pool, or else you'll have to not filter when your running the fountains. 1 pump will not be enough pressure to filter, and run the fountains. I'm in the process of renovating my pool, and I'm researched SO much. I hope that helps!

Leeanne is correct they are called sheer decents, for each sheer decent you will need a pump. We generally install (1) pump per sheer decent, you will also need to take in consideration the plumbing lines needed for each pump and provide enough space to access them for service.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Katherine Caviness added this to Plaster Tops Popularity List for Pool Finishes
White pool plaster is a simple combination of white cement, white marble aggregate and water. It is an economical choice that has a classic swimming pool look.This is the most common plaster in use today, and in the past it was the only choice. Most commercial swimming pools still are required by national building codes to have white plaster only. Pros: It is the most inexpensive of all pool surface choices and is easy to install. Cons: White plaster is a "soft" finish that is susceptible to the effects of water chemistry, compared to the newer options such as aggregates and glass tiles.
