When most people think of infinity pools they picture high-rise apartments or properties overlooking a high drop. While these certainly add to the experience of an infinity pool, they are in no way the only way in which infinity pools can be constructed. In fact, many infinity pool builders mostly work on normal, residential properties. If you have always wanted or liked the style of an infinity pool but didn't think it was possible to own one, then here is a quick explanation of how it could work in your backyard, no matter the height.
For infinity pool builders to create the feeling of the infinite edge they need for there to be some sort of edge where the water can spill over. That means that for regular homes, infinity pools need to be made above ground, rather than set into the ground. So, instead of having a pool at ground level, you can create a slightly higher one, or one surrounded by elevated decking. In some cases, the area around the pool is raised so that it has a more natural look, or on some larger properties, there are inclines that make infinity pools look better. Whatever your case, there will always be a way for you to have an infinity pool.
Often, infinity pools are actually made a lot quicker in places where the height has to be simulated because it is a much safer work environment than, say, working on the edge of a cliff or in a high-rise apartment. This makes the turn around from dreaming and wanting infinity pools to owning and swimming in them very short indeed. It can be tricky if you already own a pool, as there is no way to upgrade existing pools into infinity pools except in very rare circumstances. Ask for an inspection from a local infinity pool builder if you are curious about whether you might qualify for that.
Two Pools In One
One major benefit for young families with infinity pools is the ability to play around with smaller children in the little pool at the bottom of the infinite edge. These pools are much smaller and are there mainly to catch the water and pump it back up to the top, but in most designs, it too can be used as a play area. That is really the main trick of an infinity pool and creates that illusion of a waterfall, but it can be a really fun experience all in its own right.
