I came accross an infinity pool today with a basin. I've never seen one before. It's pretty interesting how it operates but what confused me was the basin. Both the pool and the basin have main drains. The homeowner belives its best to have the water in the basin low so that there is no chance that it can overflow down to the boat dock. I would have thought it's best to have it up to the tile line so that the pebbletech finish won't blister. What do you guys think?113263113264

It should stay at the tile line when the infinity edge pump is off. When the pool is being used, the infinity edge pump should be on to keep returning water to the pool that goes over the edge.
