The epitome of luxury and style, infinity pools are engineered masterpieces that will take your yard or outdoor space to the next level. Among modern pools, there are few that capture the eye and imagination quite like infinities. If you want to be taken away to another place every time you step into your pool or be the envy of others with your pool’s unmatched elegance, there is no better way than with an infinity pool. Seabreeze Pools has the expertise required to install this type of pool, and the knowledge to help you decide if they will complement your needs and the vision you have.
What are Infinity Pools?
Also known as “zero edge”, “negative edge”, or “vanishing edge” pools, infinity pools are designed so that one or more sides of the pool are below the waterline. This creates the illusion that the pool has no sides and, when observing from inside the pool, that it extends into the distance forever. Water is constantly spilling over the edge but is caught by a specially engineered system which quickly and quietly replenishes the pool’s water level, keeping it constant.
What Are the Advantages of Infinity Pools?
- Aesthetic Advantages – Infinity pools are popular among waterfront hotels and resorts because of the way that they appear to seamlessly blend in with the view of the nearby body of water. Recently though, homeowners have found that infinity pools can be designed to accentuate any great landscape. Stunning backdrops can be created by building your infinity to showcase mountains, sunsets, starry nights, or even urban vistas. Seabreeze Pools has expert pool design and landscaping staff on hand to assist you in getting the most out of your infinity pool and its view. Since infinity pools work best with open or natural areas, you may want to consider one of Seabreeze’s great free shape pools or fiberglass pools if your backyard faces a neighbour’s property or fences.
- Technical Advantages – As we have said, the water in an infinity pool is always overflowing off the submerged sides into the filtration system below. While this creates a nice visual effect it also has distinct advantages when it comes to water quality and maintenance. Contaminants and pollutants usually get into your pool from the surface then work their way down to the depths. In an infinity pool, though, the surface is being constantly evacuated and refreshed keeping your pool clean and eliminating the need for excess equipment. The persistent movement of your water also ensures a homogeneous mix of cleaning chemicals to keep them balanced throughout the pool.
In today’s world the infinity pool is the pinnacle of modern pool design. Because they are so technically complex, special knowledge and experience is required to design and construct them. Fortunately, Seabreeze Pools is one of the few experts in the Toronto area capable of building an infinity pool as well as all sorts of other modern pools including fiberglass pools and free shape pools.
