Infinity Type Swimming Pool Retaining Wall with Catch Pool Detail


Fully detailed CAD drawing for a infinity pool retaining wall with catch pool structural design. Generic and adaptable to be used with any project.


This is a complete detailed structural CAD drawing of an Infinity Type Swimming Pool Retaining Wall with Catch Pool Detail, taken from real life projects. It can be imported into any pool structural design project and used as a standard reinforcement detailing for construction.

Infinity pools ( or vanishing pools ) may be completely raised from the surrounding deck area and have all edges as infinity edges, or if the landscape permits, they can have only one infinity edge and the other sides can have an overflow channel. Take water than runs off from the infinity edge(s) needs to be collected so that it can be filtered and re-pumped into the pool. The same process as an overflow pool. That is why you will need a catch pool detail over the infinity edge.

The catch pool size can vary, and it can also serve as a balancing tank. As a rule of thump, balancing tanks need to hold 10% of the pools water volume and this will determine the depth of catch pool. Otherwise, if it the pool has a separate balancing tank then the catch pool can have any desired depth and size.

Comprehensive Detailing

This highly detailed construction drawing is one of the most valuable and essential tool you will need when designing with reinforced concrete pool structures to help you save valuable time with every project.

Calculations for the needed reinforcement and retaining wall thickness were carried out for pool water depths of around 130-140cm. For shallower pools, the reinforcement could be reduced to the minimum reinforcement.

The drawing provides a clear and complete reinforcement detailing of all the retaining walls and footings needed in order to complete this structural design task.

  • Pool foundation reinforcement detailing
  • Pool wall vertical and horizontal reinforcement
  • Construction joints with water stop detail
  • Pool copings
  • Infinity catch pool reinfocement detailing
  • External floor reinforcement detail

As mentioned above, the water depth of the pool and the catch pool can vary for every design, and it can very easily be adjusted with simple CAD commands.

Generic and adaptable

This comprehensive drawing provides a clear and detailed representation of everything needed to completely design and detail an infinity pool edge retaining wall and catch pool together with the exterior deck area floor slab.

The drawing is designed to be adaptable to any reinforced concrete design project, ensuring that it can be used across a wide range of construction applications.

Time is valuable

Can be used by any engineer, architect, or construction professional working with reinforced concrete pool structural designs.

By utilizing this drawing, you can save time and ensure accuracy in your designs, while also ensuring that your project meets the highest industry standards. With its clear and concise format, this drawing is easy to use and understand, making it a valuable tool for any construction project.
