Freeboard or Overflow

Many of our standard pool designs are available with overflow, please ask for more details.

Free board pools provide a cost-effective aporach

In most situations the water level will be below the level of the deck. This is called Freeboard.


The use of border tiles immediately above the water line can create an attractive visual effect. The Freeboard ensures pool users are aware of the perimeter of the pool, by the water level being at different level to the deck.

This is the most common and popular type of pool.





An overflow pool compliments the contemporary home

When the surface of the pool is flush with the deck, it creates a highly reflective surface and sleek contemporary look. The water appears motionless as it flows over all the edges simultaneously.

This effect is created by a perimeter overflow, a style used in many contemporary swimming pools.

This function is similar to an infinity-edge swimming pool which produces a visual effect of water extending to the horizon, vanishing, or extending to infinity.
