Infinity pools are pools that create the illusion of an infinite water edge. SwimEx swim spas are pools with a water current strong enough to swim or exercise against. Let’s talk more about the pros and cons of each.

Infinity Pools


The big pro of Infinity pools is their Wow factor. In most installations, a vanishing edge makes the water look like its falling into the ocean, into the sky or off of a mountain. These extremely stunning installations are great for entertaining.  If done right, they have the potential to increase the value of your home.

While Infinity pools may look amazing, they typically require complex structural and mechanical components to accomplish the finished look. They are also expensive to build (sometimes costing in the hundreds of thousands of dollars). In most cases, Infinity pools require more space to create the disappearing edge effect. Economically, they are more expensive to run. It’s hard to equip an infinity pool with a cover. This means more water evaporation, more filling, thus more water usage. They also require large pumps that need to run constantly.  If the Infinity pool installation is outside, this could limit use if in a seasonal climate.

Install a SwimEx swim spa virtually anywhere. Because of their small size and their self-supporting structure, they can be positioned above ground, below ground, inside or outside. All you need is a 12’x20’ space.


This small pool uses less space, less water, and requires fewer chemicals than traditional in-ground pools. This means lower costs all around. In addition, all SwimEx pools are constructed from solid fiberglass to help maintain water temperature for lower energy bills. Plus, if you add a solar cover, you’ll save even more.
