Vanishing Edge Vynil, Any Thoughts?


Anybody experimented with this yet? I have a few ideas about how to do it and I've done it with water features, just not on a pool yet. If any of you concrete guys out there have some input that would be helpful too.

I pour a concrete catch basin and attach the panels to it. Haven't been able to find a supplier that can produce specifications and details using their system.

nice work! now how do you go about getting a waterproof seal on the lip? are you overlapping the liner and placing your stones on top of that?

On the wier wall on the water side, I have 6" of tile. Then right below that, there is a 3/4" X 1 1/2" Plastic strip embedded in the concrete wall. Then use a presure gasket like what is used around the steps.

I got ya, at that point it's no different than the polymer steps and the plastic strip is low enought that it's not easily visible from above... Great concept on bringing together two different construction methods! I'm anxious to sell one now... Any thoughts on what not to do during construction?
