Have you ever considered building a house without a plan, even a small one? We are sure not! The same holds true for an infinity pool, or even just a pool. A drawing is a prerequisite for pool work.

If you want your in-ground pool to be a jewel in your garden and a place to relax, it is essential to have a well-thought-out  plan. The last one is needed in France for the pool construction site’s declaration to the urban planning office.

Why a pool construction plan?

Generally, pool builders or architects only provide their clients with a vague plan. It shows the length, width and depth of the pool. Sometimes additional measurements such as the width of the stairs or the width of the submerged area are included. Details such as the width of the overflow gutter or the size of the balancing tank are never specified. The only way to build a pool is to call a pool builder for a turnkey project, but …

What about taking control of your overflow pool project? With the right tools, you can.

Infinity pool plans: who should use them?

French people are gradually adopting the desire to construct their own pool, along with those from Anglo-Saxon countries.

So, even if many pool owners still choose the “turnkey” formula, more and more of you want to control the costs of building your infinity pool. According to our experience, savings range from 15 to 50% depending on the construction investment.

In many countries, there is no such thing as a pool builder. Masons and plumbers are the only option for people who want an infinity pool. These professionals will require plans, and we will also assist them with this process.

Our plans for building an infinity pool

Based on a preliminary design that we have developed especially for you or following your instructions, we design our construction plans. In the second case, we may have to adjust the plan slightly to make it feasible.

The dimensions, as well as various remarks and comments, are defined in color for the client’s benefit. In an indoor or outdoor infinity pool, the water level must be understood; the colors assist with that understanding.

We adapt our plans and comments to the specific needs of the client or project. For this reason, each plan is different and unique. However, our files always contain the following elements :

  • The general plan at 1:50 scale.

We draw it according to your instructions or based on our preliminary design. Besides the pool dimensions, we also indicate the size of the plant room, overflow gutter, and balancing tank, as well as the size of the steps, the submerged deck, and more.

  • Depending on project complexity, one or more cross-sections at 1:50 scale.

On the longitudinal and cross sections, you can see the slope of the pool floor, as well as the depth of water and the height of the steps. In addition, they include a cross-section of the overflow gutter, the balancing tank, and any attached plant room. The cross-sections facilitate the excavation for the in-ground pool construction.

  • One or more cross-sections at a scale of 1:50, depending on the project’s complexity.

Longitudinal and cross-sections show the slope of the pool floor, i.e., the water depth and the steps’ height. They also include the cross-section of the overflow gutter, the balancing tank, and the technical room if it is attached to the pool. The cross-sections facilitate the earthwork for the construction of the in-ground pool.

  • The construction details.

On the one hand, they are scaled down to the scale of 1:20 or 1:10 so that critical details are highlighted. Typically, this is the case when depicting the profile of the overflow gutter, the housing of a roller shutter, and so forth. On these points, rigor and precision are key to achieving accuracy.

Benefits of having our construction plans

Each building plan is a tool to refer throughout  the works, from installing the swimming pool on the plot to constructing the terrace ideally located to enjoy the sun.

Those who wish to build their own pool consult us because they can anticipate the work, supervise the masons’ proper execution, or even build it themselves. In addition to saving on the cost of the pool, they find it very satisfying as well.

You can consult with construction professionals and obtain precise estimates using our plans, whether your pool is inside or outside your home, on flat ground, on a slope or on terraces. Masons who aren’t swimming pool specialists will be able to work with you, and why not the ones who are responsible for building your house when a global project is underway?
