House Tour: Backyard PoolsPartially In-ground

A smart alternative to the traditional backyard pool, the Endless Pool requires less maintenance, heats more affordably, and preserves more of your garden for recreation.

The easiest to access, a partially in-ground Endless Pool gives you added bonuses: a scenic reflecting pond plus bench seating on the pool's perimeter!


  • Easiest access: the side wall functions as a seat; especially good for those with limited mobility.
  • A raised deck can create a partially in-ground appearance without excavation costs.
  • Side walls block most debris from blowing in.
  • Partial excavation costs less than full excavation.


  • Excavation raises the cost.
  • Extra insulation may be necessary to retain heat.
