Commercial Pools | From Infinity to Plunge
When it comes to deciding what kind of pool to have, you first have to decide what you want to get out of it.
Do you want something practical that people can do laps in to stay fit? Would you like it to be a source of fun for the whole family to enjoy? Are you after a social hub for friends where they can spend quality time together, perhaps with a few drinks? Or do you want it to be a luxurious addition that will add style and sophistication to your space, be a talking point for all those who see and swim in it, offer the most indulgently relaxing environment imaginable, and yet still be a practical pool people can swim and splash about in?
If the last of those sounds most like you, you might want to take a look at an infinity pool, because it might just be the perfect addition to your business or backyard.
What is an infinity pool?
Most swimming pools have clearly defined boundaries. An infinity pool, or infinity edge pool, on the other hand, gives the impression of having no edge at all. They just seem to disappear into their surroundings, so that when you’re sitting in one it looks like the water is flowing over the side and into the landscape.
You can do all the same things you can in any other pool – it’s just that you can do all that and at the same time enjoy a stunning outlook that will have you captivated.
If your property already has a great view, it can look several times better from an infinity pool!
How does an infinity pool work?
Of course, the water isn’t actually flowing into the landscape, despite what your eyes are telling you! It’s actually going into a holding tank below, before being circulated back into the main pool.
The benefits of living life on the edge
- Great aesthetics – when you’re sitting in an infinity pool looking out on a stunning view, it feels like you’re enjoying the height of luxury. If your commercial premises have the kind of location and outlook that would suit this design, it could take your appeal to a whole new level.
- Increases value – such is the beauty and visual appeal of an infinity pool, that it’s going to be a real draw for potential buyers should you decide to sell your property at a later date. If you’re managing a commercial property, such as a hotel or resort, it’s the perfect selling point for drawing in extra guests and visitors to stay with you and boost your income.
- Low maintenance – as the water circulates, it gets filtered and cleaned as it goes, while also reducing the potential for algae to grow. This means that you can spend less time looking after those aspects of general maintenance.
- Versatility – as we mentioned earlier, just because an infinity pool has the kind of visual appeal that generally makes you want to just sit back and revel in it, it doesn’t mean it can’t be as much fun as any other pool.
Will my property suit an infinity pool?
There’s no doubt that having a property on a slope with amazing views is the way to get the best out of an infinity pool, but that doesn’t mean that plenty of other homes and businesses won’t be able to enjoy its unique appeal.

Are there any negative aspects to infinity pools?
Because of their complex nature, infinity pools are going to be more costly to install than many alternatives, but you can be sure that you’ll see the benefits of what you are spending.
Also, while infinity pools are entirely safe for most people, there is a faint possibility of younger children being carried by the flow into the tank below. So – as with any pool – you need to take extra care and make sure that small children are closely supervised at all times.
