Infinity pools in BC are a popular new design that have a vanishing edge, making you feel as if you are one with the horizon, floating above the landscape. They can be built around one or more sides and provide a captivating sight.
These new types of pools go by different names:
- infinity edge pools
- vanishing edge pools
- disappearing edge pools
- negative edge pool
- zero edge pools
Whatever the name, these pools are the hottest trend for home swimming pools where the water flows over one or more edges, creating a visual effect of water with no boundary. Many types of these zero edge pools are designed so that edge appears to merge with a larger body of water like a lake, ocean or the sky. To produce the beautiful aesthetic of these pools require more design and engineering than the typical one level pool.

Safety and Protection
Auto pool safety covers offer you peace of mind in your backyard. These pool covers come in a variety of sizes and styles to fit almost any pool size. They are custom-built to provide a safe barrier that prevents accidents from happening by keeping your children and pets safe.
Energy Savings & Comfort
A pool cover is a great way to keep heat in the pool. It can be used to cover the water and keep it warm, or it can be used to cover the surface of the water and reduce evaporation. The more heated water means a more comfortable swim!
Less Debris & Maintenance
Your pool will also require less maintenance. This is because the water is cleaner, so fewer contaminants will get into the pool. Less dirt and leaves will fall in and you will have to clean it less; and filters and traps will need to be cleaned less often too.
Lower Energy & Lifetime Cost
One of the most critical component to keep in imind when maintaining a pool is to keep the chemical balance. When there is no solar exposure, the water will stay balanced for much longer than if it was exposed to sunlight when algae and other growth occurs. Less chemicals and filtering pump use will save you money over the long term.
Less Wear & Tear On Pool Equipment
Auto pool covers can be programmed to turn on automatically at specific times to keep sun exposure to a minimum, reducing chemical costs and making your filters and pumps work less, reducing wear and tear on your equipment.

Pool Cover Answers
How much weight can covers hold and can you walk on them?
Although not intended to be walked on, our covers can hold an enormous amount of weight as long as the normal water level is maintained. Often after our installation and during our customer orientation, our techs will walk on the cover to demonstrate the strength of the cover.
We have some great pictures and videos with a moose, some bears, and a golf cart on a cover ( not all at once), with no cover damage.
Can you install an auto cover on an existing pool?
Yes, we can- provided there is enough deck space to form a rectangle with no raised objects ( elevated hot tub, rock features) in the way. Typically we need a minimum of 2’ of space on the deck area at both shallow end and deep end. A pool ladder can be hinged and we would need a minimum of 14” of clearance if the mechanism is to be mounted at the deep end.
How much does an automatic pool cover cost?
- Track Options
- Pool Size and Shape
For a larger pool with more complex custom features, a safety pool cover build on a new pool build can cost upwards of $20,000 with a typical new build being $17,000 to $20,000.
