A swimming pool is a beautiful backyard oasis full of fun, relaxation, and enjoyment. When it comes to pools, there are many different options. One interesting option is the infinity pool, a pool where one edge of it gives the impression that it blends in with the horizon or surrounding landscape, creating an “endless edge” look. Infinity pools are an elegant option for people looking to have the benefits of a pool but with a next-level look of sophistication. But is an infinity pool right for you? If you’re thinking about installing a pool, we’ve compiled a list of infinity pool pros and cons to help you better understand the ins and outs of this pool option.
- Versatile– An infinity pool can be used for relaxation or exercise, whatever you choose. Infinity pools provide all the benefits of a traditional pool, but have the added benefit of being customizable. It can be modified and built to suit your specific needs or wants.
- Amazing Views– One of the unique benefits of an infinity pool is its unique view as you watch the beautiful landscape from the comfort of your pool.
- Easier to Maintain– Infinity pools use filtration system that constantly circulates water, which cuts down on algae growth. This means less maintenance for you.
- More dangerous– One drawback of infinity pools is the very thing that makes it unique. The exposed edge is easy to fall over and cause bodily injury, which you want to avoid when trying to relax.
- Not always the best option– In certain situations, an infinity pool is actually a bad idea. If your lawn has a sloping landscape, a traditional pool is a better option. Infinity pools also work best when the exposed edge looks out onto the landscape. If your yard doesn’t look out onto a larger landscape, then the effect of an infinity pool won’t work for your yard.
- Costly– Probably the biggest downside of an infinity pool is overall cost. Infinity pools are extremely costly. They require the pool itself and a smaller catch basin pool to filter water and keep it clean. The installation of these pools can cost tens of thousands of dollars to install. In addition to steep installation costs, they also have the same maintenance costs of traditional pools, from chemicals to other supplies. Maintaining an infinity pool may be easier, but that doesn’t necessarily make it cheaper.
