This is one of the most famous infinity pools on the planet. Located on the rooftop of the Marina Bay Sands skyscraper in Singapore. The view is certainly stunning, but swimming is not recommended for those who are afraid of heights.
Pictured is an infinity pool in Bali, at the Ubud Hanging Gardens hotel. We admit that such endless pools are rarely found on ordinary household and summer cottages, as they require additional equipment costs and a special approach to arrangement, the right place. Therefore, most often infinity reservoirs appear near expensive mansions, near houses on the slopes and in fashionable resorts..
Infinity pools are arranged as follows – the edge of an artificial reservoir, which seems to be endless, in fact ends with a spillway located 1.6–6.4 mm below the water level. This allows the water to overflow quietly into a special drainage basin. Then the water is pumped back to the main pool by pumps.
At the same time, the average height difference is 1.5 m. The edge that is located on the opposite side of the house is always made “limitless” in order to provide not only a beautiful view and reflective capabilities of the water surface, but also to equip a drainage basin, invisible from the side of residential buildings.
Overflow pools have several advantages in addition to their extremely beautiful and original look. The dirtiest water is usually located at the top of the pool, in the case of infinity it constantly overflows, passes through the collector, is purified by filters before returning it. That is, there is circulation, there are no zones with standing water. If there are a lot of swimmers, the overflow serves as a natural regulator of the water volume.
