Infinity Pool Myths Homeowners May Think

Posted on: 19 February 2021

An infinity pool can be an excellent choice for a person that wants to install a swimming pool on their property. However, there are many misconceptions about these specialized types of pools, and this can make it difficult to determine whether or not the homeowner decides to pursue this choice.

Myth: An Infinity Pool Is Only Suitable For Exercising

There is a common belief that an infinity pool will only be useful for individuals that want a small swimming pool that will allow them to swim while remaining in place. This can be a convenient solution for individuals that want a convenient option for using swimming as a form of exercise. However, this is not the only instance where an infinity pool can be a good investment to make. For example, these pools can also provide individuals with a relaxing swimming experience that will also be extremely efficient in terms of the space that it requires as well as having a pleasing aesthetic.

Myth: An Infinity Pool Will Be More Difficult To Install Than Traditional Pools

There is another concern among some individuals that an infinity pool's special design will make it more difficult to install than a traditional pool. While the design for an infinity pool will be slightly more complicated than the designs for more traditional-style swimming pools, it will not be significantly more difficult to install. In fact, the smaller size and simple shape of these pools can make them fairly easy for a pool contractor to install. This is especially true when you have loose soil as the weight of a full-sized swimming pool could be enough to significantly destabilize the soil underneath it.

Myth: Infinity Pools Are More Prone To Mechanical Failures

There is an assumption among some individuals that may assume infinity pools will be far less reliable than traditional pools in terms of their mechanical systems. However, this is not the case as the pools will be extremely reliable. Their smaller size can allow an infinity pool to be managed by a smaller pumping system that will still be able to easily circulate and filter the water that is in the pool. While it is still possible for an infinity pool system to suffer a mechanical failure, these issues may be more easily and affordably repaired due to their pumping components being more affordable and fairly easy for a professional technician to replace once they have failed.
