Perimeter-Overflow Swimming Pools

From Luxury Pools

The art of luxury swimming pool design has catapulted forward over the past decade.  What was once a forum for cookie-cutter kidney shaped swimming holes with the same turquiose colored perimeted tile on every project is now a stunning architectural and hydraulic showcase of ingenuity and talent.  Some of the world’s most creative and innovative swimming pool and waterscape designers are showcased in this post from Luxury Pools, presenting their technically amazing and asethetically stunning perimeter overflow swimming pool and hot tub designs.  

Here is an excerpt from the post:

You may have passed a reflecting pool and seen this amazing effect: the water’s surface looks like a flat sheet of glass or appears to be perfectly contained without walls.

This effect is created by a perimeter overflow, a style used in many modern swimming pool designs in which the water overflows its edges and flows into a hidden slot or catch basin where it is then recycled back into the pool. This function is similar to an infinity-edge pool, but with a perimeter overflow, the water overflows on all four sides.

There are two main types of perimeter-overflow pools and spas: deck-level and raised. Deck-level perimeter-overflow pools are a popular style for contemporary homes. Many deck-level pools feature raised perimeter-overflow spas, which have a unique cube-like look.
