San Antonio Valentine’s Day Ideas

Valentine’s Day is this weekend! If you want to share a special night with a special someone, check out these tips.

Last Valentine’s Day, Tanji Patton gave us some great tips on having a romantic night, poolside.

Let’s take another look at the video she put together.

We’ve got the set for the perfect romantic evening, AT HOME! Dine in tonight, and what better way to set the mood than with some chocolate?
These are so fun. I found these at Chocolad, which has a location in San Antonio. You can also go online. It’s so cool. A chocolate champagne bottle, chocolate champagne glasses, of course, chocolates, and a beautiful box of chocolates that comes in a very ornate chocolate heart. Yes – the entire thing is edible! And if you want to kick it up a notch, we even found some chocolate body paint.

We’re going to make it even better because we’re going to talk about how you can enjoy all of these great things with your own pool and spa, “spa” being one of the operative words because, I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing like a whirlpool in a beautiful setting like a backyard to really relax you, right?
That’s the best place to relax, Tanji, and just lean back and enjoy the evening.
You don’t have to have a giant backyard for this to happen, right?

No, you don’t. It’s best if you put a pool with the spa, but if you have room just for a spa, we’ve done a number of those also.
And how long does it take to build? Because when the weather is cool, like it is now, there is nothing more romantic and relaxing than getting in a hot tub at night.
I’d say, time-wise, you’re probably looking at about a month and a half to get everything done.
That’s it?
That’s it!
That’s so easy. I love that! One of the fun things you’ve got, (of course, everything at Keith Zars is state of the art – you’ve got all the fun, great stuff), and I was amazed by this because I have a hot tub at home, but if I’m planning on being in that spa later that night, I have to plan way ahead to turn the heater on, get home in time, get it going… not anymore!
Nope! All you do is you tap on your app on your cell phone, it loads, and you push your spa button to turn it on. It heats it up, turns it on, and by the time you get home, it’s ready to go. It’s a simple solution.

I would imagine it’s money saving when it comes to energy bills, right?

Oh yeah. We’ve got variable speed pumps here, so they run on a very low rpm, and then when it goes to the spa mode, it ramps it up to the spa setting. You do save money by doing that.
A lot of people like their spa, not only to relax in the evening, but especially as you get older or athletes even have muscle issues. It’s truly a therapeutic tool, right?
Oh, yeah. We’ve got one thing that we’re doing a little bit differently now. We’ve got a place where you actually step down into it, a little deeper in the spa, where it’s about 5 foot deep, and there are jets all the way up and down your back, so it gives you the total relaxation.

Another thing I think was really cool, and it’s not necessarily for the spa, but the Fastlane pools y’all do.
Yes, you can swim in place, and actually even in the regular spa, I’ll hold onto one side, and I can exercise in the spa, and it’s just a good way to exercise in the wintertime.
I would imagine a lot of couples want a spa because it’s a nice, romantic way to unwind at the end of a crazy day.

Water & Fire Feature Additions

The addition of water and fire features can enhance your entire outdoor experience in a variety of ways. The soothing sights and sounds of a new waterfall or water feature, or the warmth and light created by a fire bowl or fire pit, can create striking visuals, new focal points, and add a heightened level of symmetry, originality, functionality and luxury to your overall pool design.

  • Water Features: 
    • Adding water features, such as delightful bubblers on an existing sun shelf, lively deck jets around your pool’s coping, and stunning sheer descents or scuppers that allow water to gently cascade down a raised pool wall, provides gorgeous highlights and accents to your pool that you can marvel at.  
    • Waterfalls create a cozy, perennial and soothing look and feel to any pool. The beautifully colored stones and gently flowing water can bring balance and harmony to your outdoor space and transform your entire outdoor experience.
  • Fire Features: 
    • Fire bowls, fire pits and custom fire accent features give way to a spectacular display of color, vibrancy and light that allow you and your family to enjoy your pool day and night. Discover how the elements of water and fire combined create a magnetic and harmonious balance and produce a gorgeous chemistry that’s both subtle and bold.

Decking & Spa Additions

  • Added Deck Space
    • Expanding the amount of decking in your back yard can allow for more space to entertain and relax poolside. Imagine a new patio addition around your pool to place a set of comfortable lounging chairs, a stylish outdoor dining spot, a stunning outdoor kitchen area or a striking fire pit and seating area. 
  • Add a Spa
    • Adding a spa to your existing pool is a great way to bring a new level of functionality and enjoyment to your personal outdoor retreat. Spas offer a therapeutic experience and, with vast array of styles and custom features from which to choose, your new spa will not only relax and invigorate you, it can become the focal point of your pool and serve as an energetic and complementary addition to its entire design. 

New Pool Amenities

  • Are you looking to find new ways to spend time in your pool? Adding a swim-up bar, a sun shelf, and umbrella anchors can boost your experience and bring a new level of luxury to your outdoor space. 
  • For added recreational fun, consider incorporating a water slide, a diving board, a basketball goal or a volleyball anchor. 
  • You can even add or relocate steps and seat benches in your pool, or have new LED lights installed to broaden your pools functionality and visual appeal.

What Happy Customers Are Saying About Us

We had a cocktail pool installed by KZP and the pool turned out fantastic. We received quotes from two other pool companies, and while KZP was the higher, they were also the only ones willing to work with our custom design. They use top-quality materials and offered a huge selection of pool fittings/finishes. Kent Ely in sales was easy to work with and was pressure-free at making the sale. Bill Sturgis was our site supervisor (we didn't see him very often but was very responsive to email, phone calls, or text messages). Elizabeth, in the design department, was fun to work with while we picked color scheme and tiles. They had a very small space to work with and they did what they had to do to make it work. I would recommend KZP to anyone.

We are very excited to start using our Kieth Zar's pool this summer. They turned our backyard into our dream. Tony came out and answered all our questions on the initial visit, and measured everything in our backyard, including trees. He returned the next week with an outstanding design on paper and a 3-D model on the computer that made it come to life. We had some delays and struggles with HOA, but knowing that Zar's was in our corner and doing all the work to get everything approved, we had no worries. Work was completed on schedule, even with weather delays. John and Toby walked us through and answered all our questions along the whole build process. We also know we can still call with any more questions we have along the way, even though the job is complete.
