In this exclusive interview, David Peterson shares the pool construction trends he’s seeing homeowners gravitate to, breaks down the industry's challenges and shares how outdoor living pros can get involved in Watershape’s Live Blue Foundation.

David Peterson, CEO of Watershape University and Watershape Consulting, Inc., is an expert in fluid engineering, hydraulics and hydrology. He currently teaches the Advanced Fluid Engineering Design School for the Genesis 3 Design Group and other hydraulic and structural engineering classes.

In this exclusive interview with P&S Pro at the International Pool | Spa | Patio Expo™, co-located with Deck Expo, Peterson shares his insights on:

  • pool construction trends
  • industry challenges
  • Watershape’s Live Blue Foundation

“A lot of the trends are heading into water transit systems, which has been a trend for quite a while,” Peterson shared during his interview.

Also trending is pool seating and accessories. “People want to enjoy the water without getting completely submerged. We are looking at lounge chairs, sunchairs and bar stools where people are sitting or lying in shallow areas.”
