A wet edge pool is ideal to make the most of the view from your property. Also called an infinity edge pool, this style is most often positioned towards the horizon on the edge of your property.
They provide the illusion of water spilling over the edge, and there is a small basin below to catch and recirculate the water.
Our team of Sydney pool builders can build your dream swimming pool anywhere in Sydney and outter suburbs. Our industry-leading team of designers will help design a pool that really looks like it's got a disappearing edge.
The Ideal Backyard
The ideal backyard for an infinity pool is on a sloped property or the side of a hill. This is what provides the flawless illusion and gives us the ability to insert an unseen basin lower down for catching the water.
This pool requires a lot of space to work with, as the side of your property will often need to be cut down into. This is required to install the basin to catch the water. Cutting off your property’s edge will give the illusion of your backyard being slightly smaller, so only do this if you are happy to have a little less space.
The last factor that makes your backyard ideal for a wet edge pool is a magnificent view. This type of pool will turn the scenery into the focal point of your property.
Why Build an Infinity Pool?

It’s a statement piece that looks great and is practical. Swim laps, play with your kids, and more!
Infinity Pool Cost
The cost of a wet edge pool is higher than a regular pool due to the extra processes it requires. The engineering and construction is more complicated because of that pools infinity edge.
The basin beneath is often placed in a precarious location due to the fact it needs to be below the pool, usually on a hill.
Infinity Pool Maintenance
Infinity edge pools may require more maintenance than other types of swimming pools. You will need to keep an eye on the circulation pump as it may break. You may also find that water keeps overflowing but doesn’t come back up into the main pool. There can also be some water evaporation occurring from the overflow.
