These new types of pools go by different names:
- infinity edge pools
- vanishing edge pools
- disappearing edge pools
- negative edge pool
- zero edge pools
Whatever the name, these pools are the hottest trend for home swimming pools where the water flows over one or more edges, creating a visual effect of water with no boundary. Many types of these zero edge pools are designed so that edge appears to merge with a larger body of water like a lake, ocean or the sky. To produce the beautiful aesthetic of these pools require more design and engineering than the typical one level pool.

Although not intended to be walked on, our covers can hold an enormous amount of weight as long as the normal water level is maintained. Often after our installation and during our customer orientation, our techs will walk on the cover to demonstrate the strength of the cover.
We have some great pictures and videos with a moose, some bears, and a golf cart on a cover ( not all at once), with no cover damage.
Yes, we can- provided there is enough deck space to form a rectangle with no raised objects ( elevated hot tub, rock features) in the way. Typically we need a minimum of 2’ of space on the deck area at both shallow end and deep end. A pool ladder can be hinged and we would need a minimum of 14” of clearance if the mechanism is to be mounted at the deep end.
New build: $16,000- $18,000, we would encourage you to speak to your pool builder.
Existing pool: $12,000-$13,000 (cover only). There are electrical concerns and in some cases a person may want to build a bench over the mechanism which would add to costs. We have some talented carpenters that we have worked with that we can recommend.
