Infinity Edge Pools Producing Visual Effects
Rather than installing a basic pool, many homeowners are willing to pay a little extra to replicate a vacation experience in their backyards. Perhaps the ultimate example of the “staycation” trend are infinity edge pools. Visually stunning and always situated on a gorgeous backdrop, infinity edge pools are surely the most beautiful man-made pools in existence. Infinity edge pools are swimming or reflecting pools that produces a visual effect of water extending to the horizon, vanishing, or extending to “infinity.” Also used to describe perimeter overflow pools (pools that may be on level parcels, wherein the water flows over one or more edges, usually flush with the decking elevation). One type of location in which the effect is particularly impressive is where the infinity edge appears to merge with a larger body of water such as the ocean, or with the sky (if the pool is located on the side of a hill or field of green).
Infinity edge pools aren’t easy to site or to build due to the complexity of their design. Pumps in infinity pools have to be powerful enough to push water over the negative edge, which must be perfectly even as well. Pumps in an infinity pool also have to be strong enough to collect trough water and put it back into the pool. In addition, an infinity pool’s water collection and return system can be a bit complex and has to be precisely built.
