Pool scuppers and spouts are a unique addition to any poolscape! The name “scupper” is derived from the spouts on the sides of boats that drain water from the boat deck. While these features won’t drain water from your pool, they do create an amazing waterfall effect! These products are a great way to connect different sections of your pool, such as moving water from a spa area into the main swimming area. They can also provide additional circulation for the water, keeping it fresh. Decorative pool scuppers add to the elegance of your tranquil water oasis and are sure to add an elegant touch to the overall appearance. Swimming pool scuppers vary in size and are made of different materials like stainless steel, bronze, copper, and stone.

Our products come in unique designs and are made of highly durable materials, proven to be resistant to rust and corrosion for years for enjoyment!
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I stop my pool scupper from clogging?
Over the years, customers have voiced concerns about clogging issues in their pool scuppers. Stopping clogs in your scupper is easy. Keeping debris out of the water flow is key. Before installing the pool scupper, be sure to secure the clamping rings and bolts around the pool from the source to the main section. Installing filter screens, using a pool net to skim the water’s surface for debris, or even covering your pool when not in use are all helpful precautions you can take to prevent your scupper or spout from clogging.
How do I clean my scupper?
Cleaning the scupper is recommended at least a couple of times throughout the year, or as needed. We recommend a simple solution to effectively clean the scupper. All you need are some common household items, such as vinegar or lemon juice, baking soda, and soft cloths, such as microfiber.
- Mix either vinegar or lemon juice with a tablespoon of baking soda in a bowl.
- Dip the cloths in the solution and scrub the scupper in a circular motion.
- After doing this, wipe the scupper with lukewarm water.
- Now, your scupper is as clean and neat as ever.
