Underwater Window Diving Pool - Glass Walled Pool

At LEYU, we distinguish between underwater windows diving pool and glass walled pool.

A pool glass wall is a special underwater windows diving pool. It is called glass wall as it replaces part of the pool sides. There is no support beam on the top, it is all transparent. The top of the window is just an exposed polished glass edge. So to keep the glass in place the window is mounted from the sides and also from the bottom.

This gives the visual impression, that there is not a wall at all: The pool water just ends vertically. You can look deep into the water from the outside without the distortions that you have on the water surface. And it is just a perfect shot for your Instagram when you see a swimmer behind the glass wall - partly submerged, partly above the water.

A glass walled is an exciting pool feature that sets your swimming pool apart from others.

Are Acrylic Pools Suitable for Colder Weather?    

Acrylic pools make any yard look more spacious and luxurious due to their transparent appearance. While acrylic pools are fully functional during summer, many question their functionality during winter. Can snow damage the construction of the acrylic pool, and are acrylic pools suitable for colder weather?

We constantly get questions regarding the sustainability of acrylic pools in colder climates. So, you will find this article helpful if you’re one of these people. We will discuss how cold weather affects acrylic pools and the best above-ground pools for cold climates.

Acrylic pools can be suitable for colder weather as they are known for their durability and ability to withstand various weather conditions. Acrylic pools are generally resistant to cracking, fading, and staining, making them a good option for colder climates where temperature fluctuations can occur. Additionally, acrylic pools are known for their insulating properties, which can help to retain heat in the pool water during colder weather.

However, it is important to note that proper insulation and heating systems are still necessary to maintain a comfortable swimming temperature in colder weather. It is also recommended to consult with a pool professional to ensure that the acrylic pool is installed correctly and that all necessary precautions are taken to protect the pool from potential damage due to freezing temperatures.

In summary, acrylic pools can be suitable for colder weather, but proper maintenance and care are essential to ensure their longevity and functionality in such conditions.

Acrylic glass pool walls use acrylic panels with a thickness of 50mm-200mm.

The thickness of the acrylic plate in the acrylic glass swimming pool depends on the water level of the pool, the deeper the water level, the thicker the acrylic plate thickness. In addition to scientific calculation, Leyu Acrylic Factory also has rich experience in the calculation of acrylic sheet thickness.

Leyu Acrylic Factory has completed more than 80 aquarium park projects and more than 200 acrylic glass swimming pool projects around the world.

Factors to Consider for the Best Above-Ground Pools for Cold Climates

Our expert insights will help you determine the best inground pool for cold climates and whether acrylic pools are the right option.

Harsh cold climate and temperatures

Harsh cold temperatures affect the overall functionality of the acrylic pool. While the acrylic panels are suitable for maintaining warmer temperatures, they are not ideal for areas where the temperatures drop drastically. In this case, you will have to consider adding heating options to keep the pool warm and convenient for swimming.

Pool placement

Location plays a huge role when it comes to pool effectiveness. In colder areas, the pool placement should avoid north or strong winds because it will lose heat, and you will have no choice but to add other heating options. Therefore, you need to place the pool in warmer spots, like in the southern area of the yard, to ensure the sun shines on it.

Proper maintenance

The last but probably most important factor before installing acrylic pool panels is whether you’re willing to maintain the pool. Due to the transparent look, and quality material, acrylic pools require a lot of maintenance and investment in additional equipment.

The heating option is necessary if you use the pool during winter. The cleaning supplies and pool covers are a plus.

Also, colder months are ideal for algae production due to reduced sunlight and lower temperatures. You have to regularly clean the pool from algae or other debris to prevent further damage.

In conclusion

Acrylic swimming pools are the most popular choice in swimming pool design. But because of their luxurious appearance, many of our customers worry about how cold weather will affect their acrylic pools. So, are acrylic pools suitable for cold weather?

Acrylic pools are suitable for colder climates. Acrylic panels retain heat, keeping the water warm. Additionally, they are resistant to freeze-thaw cycles.

However, when it comes to super cold winters, we wouldn’t recommend an acrylic pool. This is because you must install additional heating equipment or install it in a temperature-controlled room.

Infinity swimming pool design features and construction plans

As the most dazzling star in modern architectural design, infinity swimming pools are widely used in leisure resort hotels, private villas and high-end clubs with their unreplicable charm. The emergence of the infinity swimming pool has changed the traditional swimming pool application model and concept. It is no longer just a carrier for people to swim, but also creates a leisure and tranquil atmosphere.

1. Compared with traditional swimming pools, infinity swimming pools have the following characteristics:

1. The walls of the swimming pool are made of imported acrylic material, and the skirt of the swimming pool is made of wood plastic or wood, while traditional swimming pools are made of rubber or concrete swimming pools with mosaics on the outside.

2. Water consumption is lower than traditional swimming pools

3. The distance of the swimming pool is 5-infinite meters, while the maximum distance of the traditional swimming pool is usually 5-10 meters.

4. Function: Large flow of water allows unlimited swimming, while traditional swimming pools have shorter distances.

5. Maintenance: The amount of maintenance is small and the operation is simple.

2. Types of infinity swimming pools

1. The most critical step in the design of an infinity swimming pool is to lower the height of one or more sides of the pool wall so that the pool water flows out along the wall. At present, there are two types of pool wall designs: a. The pool edge is inclined toward the inside of the pool; b. The pool edge is inclined toward the outside of the pool. Either way, you can create a borderless effect. In fact, the walls of a real infinity swimming pool slope toward the outside of the pool. This treatment method can truly hide the pool walls. However, this approach requires the designer to have a superhuman sense of art and combine it with the surrounding environment to create a perfect boundless effect.

2. Requirements for building infinity swimming pools

Research has found that location largely limits how an infinity pool can be built. Therefore, the choice of geographical location is generally given top priority. The location of the infinity pool is best located next to a large body of water, so as to create the effect of pool water flowing into the body of water.

For example, when building from land to ocean, there is a water collection and filtration system under the swimming pool to continuously treat overflow water and reinject it back into the swimming pool. Viewed from the shore, the visual effect of the swimming pool and the ocean is integrated.

3. The special construction methods and advantages of infinity swimming pools. When the geographical conditions are not ideal, in order to create an infinity swimming pool, the designer’s unique creativity and skillful skills are required. The design is reasonable and can achieve a very beautiful effect. Visual effect.

After doing the above work, the prototype of the borderless swimming pool has basically taken shape, but to achieve the perfect landscape effect, many supporting elements are needed to be combined with it to bring out the maximum charm of the borderless pool. For example: the design of the surrounding landscape, the selection of materials, the coordination of lighting, etc. This requires designers to handle it according to the specific style and environmental conditions of the project to achieve excellent visual effects.

3. Infinity swimming pool construction plan

Whether the architectural drawings truly reflect the designer's intent is the most important part of the process of creating an endless swimming pool. From the following three construction options, you can understand the advantages and disadvantages of different methods.

Option One:

Modern unlimited pool wall construction drawings are mostly used in the specific planning of the project or the specific planning of a specific problem. This practice requires sharing a water circulation system with the sink, which often results in unsatisfactory flow rates due to conditions. If large amounts of water are required to meet landscape requirements, a larger return pond will have to be constructed. This increases the cost of construction and operation and maintenance, but in special circumstances (e.g. seaside, cliffs, etc.) the scheme can work well.

In this plan, the wall of the falling pool has a certain tendency to better meet the requirements of the water drop effect. Sometimes for the sake of simplicity and elegance, there is no tilt in many cases. In this case, there will be no strong falling into the water effect. This approach is usually done when there is no need to fall into the water, such as falling into the sea. They are widely used on cliffs.

Option Two:

This solution is optimized based on option 1. This method allows the water system to be divided into two independent systems, one is a drip system shared with the pool, which can be used with small water tanks. Suitable for drop effects; in landscapes that require a lot of drops, use a separate system, separate from the pool, so you don't need a large receiver to get good results when creating drop effects. And can be combined with the system to form a borderless effect. However, there is also a disadvantage that the surface size of the pool wall of the swimming pool is relatively large and the structure is slightly complex, which is difficult to implement for places with size requirements. However, this design can satisfy the landscape effect from all angles and can be applied to any occasion.

The infinity pool at the famous Sands Hotel in Singapore is 650 feet (198 meters) high, making it the largest outdoor swimming pool in the world. The swimming pool is like a clear spring on the edge of the cliff, which gradually stretches towards the horizon. "Water and sky meet", it's like a waterfall pouring down from the sky. However, in fact, when the water overflows the boundary of the pool, it does not hit the ground directly, but flows into the catchment pool not far away, and then filters and re-enters the pool. The swimming pool has two cycles. The first group is no different from an ordinary swimming pool and is used to filter and heat the water in the swimming pool; the second group is used to filter and collect the water in the pool and transfer it back to the swimming pool.

Option Three:

Cases are relatively rare and there are not many practical applications. In addition to the shortcomings of option 1, assuming that its wall decoration materials and slope are not handled properly, it is easy to see the pool edge on the swimming pool platform, thus affecting the overall landscape effect. The inner wall of the swimming pool has a certain curvature. When the swimming pool is not satisfied with the water, the effect is even less ideal and there is no modern feeling. In addition, the roofing stones must be constructed according to the shape, which increases the difficulty of construction and processing costs. The interior walls have curvature and the paving materials are also limited, resulting in material limitations.

In addition, borderless swimming pools often require a good water circulation system to work together to achieve their borderless effect.
