Glass Walled Pools

At Hydrosight, we distinguish between underwater windows and glass walls. A pool glass wall is a specialized type of underwater window. It's referred to as a glass wall because it replaces part of the pool's side, offering a seamless, transparent view without a supporting beam on top. The top edge of the glass is exposed and polished, providing a sleek finish. To secure the glass in place, it is mounted from the sides and the bottom and is therefore especially suited for above-ground pools.

This design creates the illusion that there is no wall at all: the pool water appears to end vertically. From the outside, you can look deep into the water without the distortions typically seen on the water's surface. It also makes for a perfect Instagram shot, capturing a swimmer behind the glass wall—partly submerged, partly above the water.

A stunning effect can be achieved with a glass wall without top reinforcement. The pool seems to glow in the dark thanks to the underwater lights.

Glass Walls for Pools Advantages of Hydrosight Underwater Windows

Overflow / Infinity Glass Edge

When the water level meets the top of the window, a skimmer glass wall is created. This allows water to flow over the edge of the window into an overflow gutter, making the edge of the glass disappear beneath the overflowing water. In this setup, the glass serves as the drop-off point for the infinity pool.

The acrylic side wall can be installed with or without overflow. Overflow in this context means, that the water runs over the edge of the glazing into a drainage. The top of the glazing - as the rest of the infinity pool - sits flush with the water level.

How to Install?

Planing and Preparation

For each of your window requests, Hydrosight will provide the technical drawings needed for the concrete work of the pool, i.e. the opening for the window. This allows you to plan accordingly on the installation and/or construction procedure.

In the meantime, the windows will be produced. They shall be ready for shipment just when you need them on the site.
