Elevated blocks with views, across waterways or valleys, provide the most impressive canvas for a negative edge pool (a.k.a Infinity Pools). Negative edge pools give the impression that they merge into the surrounding landscape. Water runs over the side of the pool spilling into a lower trough. The water is then recirculated out of the trough and back into the main body of the pool.
Structural design and pool position are given a great deal of consideration as negative edge pools are usually constructed on the side of a hill and out of the ground. Another consideration is the evaporation rate of a negative edge pool. If your pool needs to be run on tank water this may not be the best choice of pool.
Negative edge pools don’t always have to be positioned on the side of a hill. They are often built as a positive edge pool, whereby the spill over wall faces the house and it becomes more of a water feature. Positive edge pools can be made to look quite spectacular with the right combination of wall cladding and lighting. Thought needs to be given to the trough as it is a body of water, so it will need to either be fenced like a normal pool or covered over or the other option is the use of underground balance tanks.
Baden Pools can build negative edge pools in all areas of Melbourne, including: Beaumaris, Sandringham, Brighton, Black Rock, Mt Martha, Mt Eliza, Hampton, Portsea, Malvern, Balnarring, Mornington Peninsula and Blairgowrie.
