What is an Infinity Pool?

Looking for a way to add a touch of naturalistic elegance to your pool? Or perhaps you’re seeking a luxurious oasis that resembles that which can be found on the properties of 5-star resorts. If either is what you crave, then an infinity pool is sure to hit the mark.

Infinity Pools Defined

Also referred to a zero edge, negative edge or a vanishing edge style of pool, an infinity pool is one which is able to produce a stunning effect of a pool’s waters extending forever towards the horizon for a limitless amount of time, thus the “infinity” term that comes with this design. The term is also often used to describe any perimeter overflow pools.

Where This Pool Design Works Best

There are two obvious situations where the infinity design will work best:

When pool waters are able to merge with another body of water, such as an ocean or a lake
When pool waters are able to merge with the sky (i.e. if the pool is on a hillside)

But infinity pools are actually far more diverse than most realize. Most homeowners may not have the most picturesque backdrop apart from their very own backyard or garden. Having an infinity pool which extends to a very beautiful or scenic part of the yard can be extremely complimentary to your landscaping. The infinity pool design can act like a giant mirror, reflecting the most beautiful parts of your backyard and surrounding area.

Having a raised spa or pool featuring an infinity edge which then drops down to a lower level pool, pond or fountain is also an incredibly attractive way to incorporate this hot feature into your current or future pool. Add in a few water features, such as spouting jets, and you’ll have a resort style infinity pool.
