Infinity Edge Pool
Because of its unparalleled aesthetic impact, this is, without a doubt, one of the most well known type of overflow in the world.
It is most often used for steep terrains and, thus, usually, only occupies one side of the pool. By looking out from the patio or the inside of the house, you get the illusion that the water disappears off the edge of the horizon.
As shown by the diagram, the success of this type of overflow is dependant on the overflow channel being completely invisible (and silent) from all angles. You can only guarantee this by having the adequate profile. Anything less, and you will also inevitably have to deal with a cacophony of noises set on by the resulting waterfall. (If, however, some of you looking for this kind of realistic waterfall, don't worry! It's quite easy to do: Discussed in our forthcoming article )
To illustrate my point regarding the need for an adequate profile, I've added two photos below: One taken from the overflow looking towards the house, and vice versa. As you can see, the water remains relatively still and does not cascade out into the lower part of the swimming pool.
This is, by far, my favourite type of overflow. In fact, the majority of projects I've worked on have it in some capacity.
But, what do you think of it? Please leave your comments and questions below.
