An infinity edge pool is a swimming or reflecting pool which produces a visual effect of water extending to the horizon, vanishing, or extending to “infinity”. Infinity edge pools are often seen at exotic resorts, exclusive estates, and in advertisements. The concept is said to have originated in France, where one of the first infinity edge designs was utilized in the “Stag Fountain” at the Palace of Versailles in the early 1600s.As they are very expensive, they require extensive structural, mechanical (hydraulic engineering) and architectural detailing. The structural engineering must be based upon the geological conditions found on the site.

The high costs of these pools are often found in the foundation systems that anchor them to the hillsides. In reality the edge of the pool terminates at a weir that is 1/16 – 1/4″ lower than the required pool water level. A trough or catch basin is constructed below the weir. The water spills into the catch basin, from where it is then pumped back into the pool.
