A vanishing edge pool, also known as a negative edge or infinity-edge pool, creates the illusion of the pool water pouring over the edge into another body of water, such as a lake or river or down a hillside. If all sides of a pool or spa are in the vanishing edge style, it’s called a wet deck or perimeter overflow pool. With this design, there are no visible edges and water flows over the edges on all sides, into a specially constructed hidden basin.
Vanishing edge and perimeter overflow pools provide a stunning visual effect, but they are also the most difficult design to construct. These projects require extremely precise engineering calculations during design and unwavering workmanship standards at all stages of construction. They should only be done by experienced professionals, like us, who specialize in vanishing edge design and gunite pools.
