is the cost of a pool worth it? A pool will increase the value of your home, but not enough to cover the cost of installing it. On average, it will increase the value of your home by 5%. So, if you have a $500,000 home, you can expect to get about $25,000 more when you sell it with a pool.

Yes, infinity pools are safe. Remember, the disappearing edge is a visual trick, not an actual disappearing edge. If you swim up to the edge of the pool, you'll reach a wall.

What is the difference between an infinity pool and a regular pool?

An infinity pool is a regular pool with a negative edge that flows over. Example, the water flows over one edge to give you an "infinity" edge. Mostly just for looks.

How does an infinity pool work?

An infinity pool has one or more walls that meet the water level exactly. This is unlike regular pools, which have walls that extend beyond the water. It turns out that that water falls into a catch pool, a basin that sits beneath the vanishing edge. This water is then collected and pumped back into the main pool.

Do pools add value to a home?

In some areas, adding a pool may increase your annual property taxes, but it won't necessarily add to your home's selling price. For that reason, try to keep your total building cost between 10% and 15% of what you paid for your house, lest you invest too much in an amenity that won't pay you back.

How long can you finance a pool?

Here's why: If you obtain a home improvement loan for a pool, the term will likely be 7 to 15 years maximum. However, the length of a typical mortgage is 30 years. So, by integrating your pool loan into your mortgage, the pool costs are spread over three decades—versus the typical 7 to 15 years.
