The term “vanishing edge pool” is also known as an “infinite edge pool”, or “negative edge pool”. A vanishing edge pool allows water to flow over one or more of the edges of the pool, creating a visual effect of water with no bounds. When positioned on an exaggerated elevation, vanishing edge pools create an impressive optical illusion of water extending ‘infinitely’ towards the horizon. Often, a vanishing edge pool is utilized on a site that features unimpeded views of the sky or another broad body of water such as the ocean or a lake. In the last several years vanishing edge pools have gained popularity beyond luxury resorts, as a frequently requested feature in our residential swimming pool projects. The dramatic effect of a vanishing edge pool is hard to ignore. It is said that vanishing edge pools are one of the single most important design trends in custom pool design.
