What is a Rain Curtain or Rain Wall in Swimming Pool Design?

What is a rain curtain or a rain wall in a swimming pool design? A rain curtain is a type of water feature added to a swimming pool to create a certain visual effect – in this case, the sound & the illusion of a wall of rain. A rain curtain produces a wall of rain drops versus the solid sheet of water produced in a sheer descent waterfall. Rain curtains are gaining popularity in both outdoor and indoor swimming pool designs.
