Do you want the water going over the negative to sheer or hug the wall or go down a stepped stone wall? How wide will the edge be?

10 foot edge the edge has no visible function. there is a log separating the pool from the beach. the illusion is that the log is damning the water to create the pool /waterfall then the beach is the lower resivore witch is a separate resivore recirculating it's water to appear some water coming from upper.so the displacement tank is in in between pool & log/beach. the infinity edge in this illusion is the log damming the water yet accommodating water displacement

There are too many variables in negative edge design and your description in insufficient to make suggestions.

to all you needing a pic. I thank you for nothing I figured a high tech way to answer my own ? I weigh in at 215 so I scrunched down into a cube measured it, then figured If I have 10 people in at once I would need a cube 10 X bigger than me for my catch basin /displacement tank

Wrong, that's only a part of it. We would have been happy to assist if you had given us the info we asked for. Since you gave us nothing, you got nothing. But please, go ahead and perceive yourself as being smarter or more experienced.

hahaha, if only television had a pool building sitcom, this would be a great first episode....husband scrunches into a ball in living room (tipping over a couple times rolling around), wife measure human ball with a 12" ruler, husband uses calculator to mulitply times 10 and has now figured out what award winning builders and designers could not. Epic!

It's unfortunate how multiple resources are offering their help, only to get a pompous and sarcastic declaration of "nevermind, I figured it out."

Please Snarfy, PLEASE let us know what happens in episode two.
