Infinity swimming pools, or endless pools, as they are sometimes called because of the way the water appears to go on forever like the ocean waves on the shore, are the high-end class of swimming pools.
Building an infinity pool costs more than a free-form pool due to extra materials, the plumbing and the equipment used in the construction of an infinity swimming pool. The cost factor in infinity swimming pools is because usually infinity pool construction projects have to be engineered to accommodate the vertical slope they will be adjacent to. Although in some situations infinity swimming pools can be built with a standard engineered plan made specifically for infinity swimming pools positioned on a less drastic slope condition.
But don’t be discouraged by the high price these infinity pools go for. Speak with a professional pool contractor who may surprise you in a good way. The standard infinity swimming pool engineered plan may be applicable in your situation, thus reducing the price tremendously.
SALT WATER SWIMMING POOLS
Salt water swimming pool construction is no different than regular swimming pool construction. Contractors use regular plaster, pebble finishes and plaster products mixed with aggregates.
Homeowners tend to think that the salt water swimming pools will smell and taste like the ocean, but this is absolutely not the case. Salt-chlorinated water is soft water with no need to worry about itchy skin, red eyes, heavy chemical odors and unwanted bleaching of clothes.
For the past decade, salt water swimming pools have become the new industry standard. For many years treating swimming pools with chemicals was the only option, but nowadays salt water swimming pools & designs are shown to be the best cost effective way to treat swimming pools. Salt water pools utilize normal table salt; approximately one teaspoon per gallon of water is all it takes and it won’t wear-out or evaporate.
INDOOR SWIMMING POOLS
In general, the construction of indoor swimming pools is no different than an outdoor pool construction. The major difference has to do with dealing with humidification in an indoor pool because such pools release large amounts of humidity. If this humidity is not handled properly, it will cause real damage to the structure of the building. Needless to say, the main benefit of an indoor swimming pool is the year-long usage of the pool.
SWIMMING POOL RENOVATIONS
Swimming pool renovations start with a redesign of your existing pool and backyard. The second part is choosing the desired materials and checking how they intertwine with the new swimming pool design. There are many things that can be renovated in the pool – tile size and color, the coping, possibly adding a spa or water-feature to the pool re-design. These choices can change your existing pool from a boring look to a very exciting looking swimming pool. Another important part of swimming pool renovations is getting your pool up to code and converting your swimming pool to a more efficient pool in terms of saving money on a monthly basis and not throwing money away when ever your swimming pool is running.
