You may want to bring the vacation experience to your home or villa. Especially if you have backyard that feature beautiful scenery as those fancy hotels. Even though you don’t have a breathtaking view, you can still build an infinity pool at your home with the right design and engineering. But, you should think carefully because infinity edge pools are very expensive and require extensive mechanical and design.
As you may know, an infinity swimming pool has a short wall on one side (usually using glass material), which allows water to spill over into a catch basin or wire below then pumped back into the pool. You will spend a lot of cost to install the wire and a special hydraulic engineering to pump the water from the weir back into the pool. Not to mention the maintenance. But, if you are able to build this expensive pool, you would enjoy your pool as if you’re constantly on vacation. What do you think?
