A zero edge pool, not from scratch!

Hello you all! I want to say thank you for reading my blog posting every week! It has become something I really look forward to as sharing information to you whether you buy services from us or not, is something that I really enjoy. I am sitting in my office everyday answering phone calls of people wanting to understand the process of remodeling or building pools and it’s quite a LOT of information, so having the blog open to the public helps you make this ride easier to digest and clears some of your doubts. I hope I can be of help and you enjoy reading my articles as much as enjoy typing them for you

A zero edge pool, not from scratch!

A very exciting project that started a few weeks ago that entails remodeling an existing pool and spa… but not an usual remodel, a very unique remodel!

Whats a ZERO EDGE POOL?

Zero edge swimming pools go by many names, some of which include: infinity edge, vanishing edge, negative edge, and disappearing edge. If you hear someone using any of these terms then don’t worry or be confused, they’re just talking about zero edge pools.

A zero edge pool is a swimming pool that has one or multiple edges that water flows over. This design feature creates the interesting visual illusion that the pool’s water has no physical boundary but is still being kept in place. Swimming pools that are designed like this often merge with smaller collecting or catch basins (catch pool). Your zero edge pool will need to have a catch basin in order to function properly. The purpose of this catch pool is simple; as its name suggests, it collects the cascading water from your zero edge swimming pool. Once this water is collected, the catch pool then uses it to refill your zero edge swimming pool, keeping its water level constant.

The catch basin is designed as per your pool’s specific needs based on size, water volume and surface area. There’s two ways of creating that water reservoir, one is by building an underground water reservoir tank and the other one is designing a catch basin that’s able to withhold a larger water volume. Most remodel pools require an underground water reservoir tank due to the lack of space to enlarge the catch basin.

I would like to now share some progress pictures. Please note ZERO EDGE POOLS AND SPAS require a LOT of detail so labor costs increase but the outstanding results are undeniable. I will keep you posted with more progress on this pool remodel project, can’t wait to share a before and after!
