Infinity-Edge Pools - Infinite Beauty

Dec 29th 2015 at 9:32 PM

There was a time when swimming pools were little more than backyard watering holes. People thought little of how the pool looked; only that it was useful during hot weather. They were above-ground or in-ground pools, and were rectangular, square, or (for the really daring) kidney-shaped. But times have changed and so has pool design. Now pools are meant to be as much an outdoor-living experience as they are a place to beat the heat. The latest trend in pool design is an infinity-edge, or negative-edge, pool. You'll find its picturesque effect stunning along with a wonderful swimming experience.

What is a negative-edge pool? A negative-edge pool is a uniquely designed pool that allows the pool's water level to meet its edge and then spill over its walls into, what appears to be, infinity. The pool's water actually goes over the edge onto a small "lip" and then into a basin that, once filled, pumps the water back into the pool. Because of this, infinity-edge pools require two filtration systems: one for the water in the pool and one for the water being pumped back from the edge. This pool's design and system is very complex, but the affect is striking.

A few things to think about if you're considering an infinity-edge pool:

- Cost - Infinity-edge pools cost considerably more than traditional pools because of their difficult design demands and multiple filtration systems.

- Location - You need a cliff, a hill, or to be facing a large body of water for an infinity-edge pool's full effect. If you don't have one of these things but still want the pool, you will have some landscape design needs as well for the job to be done right.

- Size - The pool needs to be big enough to accommodate all swimmers. If it isn't, water displacement can cause the basin to fill too quickly, and the pool's filtration system will fail.

To make the installation process as painless as possible, be sure to work with a designer who has experience in infinity-edge pool design. This will ensure the best result upon completion of your pool.
