Increased visibility

With overflow pools, the water and the deck are at the same level. This allows one to see 100% of the water’s surface. Therefore, there are no blind spots and it’s easy to keep an eye on the kids from all angles. You can lie down, sit or walk away a bit and will always be able to see the whole sheet of water. This will make you feel more confident when the children are playing near the pool.

Maximum hygiene

Have you noticed how in overflow pools the water always looks clean and crystal-clear? That’s because they are constantly and quickly renewing their water. Hygiene is one of the reasons why hotels and sports clubs have overflow pools. If we take into account 1) that kids feel infinitely attracted to water, and 2) that they are more vulnerable than adults, a boost of hygiene is a good preventive measure for their health.

It also helps to keep into account that:

Anti-slip floors are a non-negotiable must

Avoiding unexpected falls into the water and slips is another important preventive measure. Anti-slip floors are the best option. All Rosa Gres porcelain stoneware colors have an anti-slip finish.
