Like pools? Who doesn't? Here are 29 pictures of stunning infinity pools that are refreshing just to look at.
An infinity pool takes the luxury of a swimming pool and adds an ineffable mystique that can only be achieved through the unique construction which allows the water to vanish into the horizon. The edge of the pool terminates at a weir just below the surface, allowing water to flow over and down into a catch basin, where it is pumped back into the pool. During this process the water is filtrated. Because that water isn’t stagnant and is treated whenever it replenishes itself, it is much less maintenance than a regular pool.
A costly investment is required to build these special pools, so they are almost always placed within view of an eye-catching vista, all the better to show it off. Not sure if infinity pools are right for you? Check out our cost overview of infinity pools and more in our
definitive swimming pool guide.
Another drawback to having an infinity pool is if you don’t have a naturally sloping landscape in your backyard, the pool and catch basin won’t seem to be as picturesque.
However, as you can see by the gallery below, the infinity pool may just be one of those most luxurious features of a home.
