Infinity edges add a stunning effect to your swimming pool designs. Use infinity edges to create an optical illusion, to join a spa with a swimming pool, or simply to create a tranquil water flow.

Multiple types of infinity edge profiles are available, allowing you to achieve the perfect swimming pool design. When viewing your design in the Realtime Walkthrough, water will realistically flow over each infinity edge.

Realistic Steam and Bubbling Spa Water

Spas, hot tubs, and swimming pools now support animated steam and turbulent bubbling water. Pre-built standalone hot tubs now also support realistic reflections and refractions.
