The Ultimate Guide to Infinity Pools
Thinking about getting an infinity pool? Great choice. Burleson Pool Company have created this helpful guide to all things infinity pool to provide you with everything you need to know.
What is an infinity pool?
An infinity pool is one of the most spectacular pools money can buy. Fitted with ‘disappearing edge’ architecture, they give the impression of an endless pool extending towards the horizon – hence the ‘infinity’ name.
How do infinity pools work?
Infinity pools use some very clever architecture to achieve the ‘infinite’ look. Water flows over the disappearing edge – which is a pool edge without coping – and into a holding tank, which is positioned at the base of the pool wall, running parallel to the edge. The water collected in the tank is then recycled into the pumps, which then flows into the pool, and the process repeats.
Are infinity pools safe?
Infinity pools are safe. You won’t float over the side; there’s a wall in the way, you’re just being tricked by the brilliant illusion of the ‘disappearing edge’.
Can you fall off an infinity pool?
No, you can’t fall off the side of an infinity pool. It’s only an illusion!
Are animals safe in infinity pools?
Animals are as safe in infinity pools as they would be in any other form of pool, as long as they are able to swim.
How much does an infinity pool cost?
Infinity pools tend to cost between upwards of $100,000, but for that cost you are getting one of the most stunning additions to a backyard money can buy.
What are the best infinity pools in the world?
Every infinity pool is stunning, but perhaps the best and certainly the most famous is the Marina Bay Sands pool in Singapore. It’s situated 57 floors above street level and it’s a must-visit for anyone in the area.
