Building Infinity Pools / Vanishing Edge Pools
Infinity Pools we design incorporate the unique geological conditions of the specific property. This makes each Infinity Pool unique. Still, the concept is the same in every design: one or more walls of the pool are exactly the same height as the water level, as opposed to rising a few inches above the water level. These walls gradually slope away from the pool to crease a vanishing edge effect. In reality, the overflowing water cascades into a basin beneath the edge where it’s pumped back into the pool.
Vanishing edge pools are best suited for properties that:
- Feature a scenic environment to capitalize on the illusion of vanishing edge pools.
- Have a gently sloping grade or small hill for multiple pool levels, if desired.
- Match the modern style of your home.
Our book called Vanishing Edges, is a manual that includes a computer program to determine piping sizes, flow requirements and system design specifications that make vanishing edge pools possible.
