What You Should Know Before Installing an Infinity Pool in Your Home? If you are considering installing a pool in your home, an infinity pool can be an option for you depending on certain conditions. In order to know if this is a good option for your home, let us understand what kind of set up they require and the cost of building an infinity pool.
Basic requirements for an infinity pool
You may have seen beautiful infinity pools in resorts and hotels. With the increasing popularity of these ponds, many homeowners began embracing this type of pool in their own backyards. Infinity pools are designed in great detail and need a lot of added components unlike standard ponds.
Two circulation systems are required to maintain the tank in a clean way and to keep the water in motion. While the first filter is similar to the ones used in standard pools, the second filter functions only when the pond is in use. It accumulates the water into a trench, which are located on the external edges of the pool. The water is then filtered and sent back to the pond by way of the floor drain in the pool.
Infinity pools can be designed in a number of sizes and shapes to compliment any kind of backdrop. It is best to have an edgeless pool in a background that blends into the horizon like a lake, ocean or sky. This will give an illusion of your pond stretching to infinity, which is what this design intends to achieve. If your yard overlooks your neighbor’s home, it will not make much sense to have an infinity pool. A waterfront home or one that overlooks the mountains is the ideal setting to install infinity pools.
How much it will cost you
Setting up an infinity pool is much more expensive than installing a standard pool, this is mainly due to the fact that it is intricately designed and requires advanced systems for filtering and cleaning the pond. In addition to this, you might also have the added cost of installing the buffer tank, electronic auto-fill sensors, circulation pumps, large filters and the collection trench.
If you want to save some money on these, you do have the option of purchasing the standard version of infinity pools. These are available with certain pond companies. Pre-designed infinity pools can be a more cost-efficient solution than the custom-made versions.
