This design solution, which has rapidly become a global favourite, couples optimum water quality with sophisticated aesthetic impact: the water at the same level as the pool edge, creates continuity between the interior of the pool and its context, producing a pleasing mirror effect.
Water is recirculated via a surface overflow channel: the water overflowing from the pool's edge is collected in the channel, flows into a balance tank and is then filtered and disinfected in the recirculation system, before being returned to the pool by means of wall or floor outlets. Therefore, this system guarantees constant treatment of the water, which remains crystal-clear and free from contaminants.
The same recirculation system is applied in knife-edge pools, where however the water disappears underneath the paving surrounding the pool creating a stylish interplay between the transparency of the pool water and the perimeter stone paving.
The paving around these pools contributes to their aesthetic impact, and can be chosen from a variety of materials: gres porcelain tiles, marble, polished pebbles or stone.
