All Yo Need To Know About Infinity Pools

by Cassandra Caldwell

An infinity swimming pool has a vanishing edge which creates an illusion that makes the pool join with natural features such as lakes, seas, beaches, horizons or mountains. Typically, the pool has three edges that sit on the same level. The vanishing edge sits lower than the other sides. Water flowing from the vanishing end collects in tunnel or tank and is pumped back into the pool.

Read the article below to learn how you can construct an infinity pool in your home. 


Check zoning regulations to determine if there are restrictions on the size and type of swimming pool you can construct in your home. You need a permit from your local council to build the pool. Apply for a swimming pool safety certificate once the pool is complete. Most buyers will ask for this certificate when purchasing the property. You may need to conduct a land survey if you intend to build the pool along the property boundary. It would be unfortunate if you have to move the pool in the future if it sits on your neighbour's land.


It is the most critical consideration when building an infinity pool. If you are building a new home, consider a rooftop pool that connects with the horizon or a water body. If you already own a home, check which location faces the sea, mountains, plains, a beautiful sunset or sunrise. Typically, the pool may need to be at a higher elevation for it to have a seamless flow. Besides, it is a sure way to remove distractions such as fences, trees and shrubs. 

Finding A Pool Builder

Referrals, home improvement blogs and forums will help you identify reputable infinity pool builders in your locality. Ask the builders to send their portfolios or show you some of their work. Consider builders who have high-quality work and creative designs. Narrow your search to two or three builders whom you feel can accomplish the task at hand. Ask them to send a quote of how much they will charge to build the pool. More often than not, the builders will need to conduct a site visit to determine a suitable location and construction challenges such as underground power and water lines. Work with the builder who provides the best design at a reasonable price. 

Your swimming pool contractor should observe safety as he or she builds the pool. Earthmoving equipment should be inspected daily. Besides, they should be operated by skilled and qualified personnel. The excavated soil could be used to create a landscape. If not, it should be dumped at an appropriate facility.

About Me

How to Keep Your Pool Water Clean and Clear

I love my swimming pool. There is nothing better than spending a long summer's day by the side of the pool, taking the occasional dip to cool off. I also like to exercise in my pool before I start work. It really wakes me up and gets me going for the day. However, I had a bit of a shock when I uncovered my pool after a long winter. The water had turned a funny green colour. I called in a pool contractor and they explained that the water was out of balance and needed to be shocked and cleaned. Since then, I have learnt all about how best to care for my pool water. I have started this blog to let others know how they can look after their swimming pool.
