Cantilevering

Hope that is spelt right.

Wondering if anyone knows how far you can do this over an edge without support underneath.

Just thinking for a maybe design of a pool and wondering how to do it.

It would have an infinity edge on 3 sides, including the overhang section.

Here is a rough diagram.

My pool is cantilevered by 2m and I haven't had any problems. The length is 18m and the depth is 1.4m with an infinity edge on three sides. What you're planning to do looks OK but it does take some heavy steel reinforcement.
