Concrete infinity pools

Unlike traditional pools with a visible edge or lip that marks the waterline, infinity pools use an optical illusion to make the water appear to flow over the edge and into the horizon. These pools blend seamlessly into the surrounding landscape, and when viewed from the vantage point of the pool deck or an adjacent location, the water disappears into thin air, creating a breathtaking effect.

The key feature of an infinity pool is the infinity edge, which is created by designing the pool so that one or more sides appear to merge with the horizon or a scenic view. The edge is usually finished with a slit or channel, allowing water to flow over the edge and into a hidden catch basin or reservoir below.

One of the main advantages of concrete infinity pools is their aesthetic appeal. They are common in high-end hotels, resorts, and luxury homes, where the stunning views and sleek design add to the overall ambience and experience. The visual effect of the disappearing edge can be particularly striking in locations with panoramic vistas, such as oceanfront properties, hillside villas, or city skyline views.

The smooth, continuous water flow over the edge creates a soothing and peaceful ambience, and the lack of a visible edge can make the pool feel more expansive and open. If you want a serene, calming retreat in your backyard, an infinity pool is a perfect solution. Talk to our infinity pool builders today to bring your vision to life!

Here are some of the most common questions we get asked. If you have any specific questions please get in touch!

How do infinity pools work in terms of water circulation and the vanishing edge?

The magic of infinity pool comes down to their genius design. Infinity pools, also called vanishing edge pools, create a breathtaking visual effect by making one or more edges of the pool blend with the surrounding landscape. These pools are constructed with a catch basin below the vanishing edge to collect water that flows over it, recirculating it back into the main pool.

The water circulation system, including pumps and filters, ensures that the water level remains slightly higher than the vanishing edge, causing a continuous overflow. The illusion created by this design makes it appear as though the water disappears into the horizon or another scenic view, enhancing the pool’s aesthetic appeal.

Are infinity pools suitable for all types of properties and landscapes?

Infinity pools can enhance the beauty of a property, but their suitability varies with the landscape and circumstances. Infinity pools create a striking visual effect for properties with scenic views, such as those by the coast or on a slope. However, they might not be a practical choice for flat terrains. The cost of construction and maintenance can be higher, and you must consider the relevant regulations.

Assess your budget, maintenance capabilities, and aesthetic goals, and speak to our team to determine whether an infinity pool is the right fit for your property and landscape.

What are the key benefits of having an infinity pool?

  1. Aesthetic Appeal: Infinity pools have a captivating aesthetic appeal.

  2. Increased Home Value: With this beautiful addition to your home, you can help increase its overall value, plus have a desirable feature that may just win over a potential buyer.

Talk to us about your infinity pool, and we can provide an approximate timeframe.

What ongoing maintenance do infinity pools require?

An infinity pool requires the same upkeep as any other pool would: regular cleaning and equipment maintenance. Here are the basic steps to keeping your pool in top shape:

  1. Regular cleaning with a skimmer and vacuum to manage dirt and debris.
  2. Test and maintain the water chemistry and quality.
  3. Inspect the filters and pumps to ensure they’re working as intended.
  4. Clean the infinity catch basin to prevent buildup and keep the infinity illusion looking its best. Ensure the catch basin’s drain is clear and water flows properly.

Can I use an infinity pool for exercise and recreation?

While most pools offer a suitable place for exercise and recreation, infinity pools are typically better suited for relaxation and leisure as you take in the beautiful surroundings. The design and features of infinity pools can be impractical for exercise. If the main purpose of your pool is exercise and recreation, consider a standard pool. Talk to our team about how you wish to use your pool, and we’ll provide expert advice on the ideal option.
