How a Natural Swimming Pool Works

Natural pools are a growing new trend in the United States. However, they have been building them in Europe for several decades. These pool types are an ideal choice for the warm and sunny climate of Central Florida. They may take the look of a natural pond, swimming hole or even a typical pool. In addition, they often have an irregular shape and may have greenish or brownish tinted water. However, these pools are perfectly safe for swimming. Therefore, if you desire sparkling clear blue water, you may want to rethink getting such a pool. They do not require the chemicals or typical upkeep of chlorine-filled pools. An expert natural pool builder can design and craft the perfect pool for your backyard.

These pool types are much more low-tech than typical ones. For example, eco-friendly aquatic plants surround the pool to keep it clean. They filter the pool through a regeneration zone next to the pool area. The zone acts as a small ecosystem that purifies the water in the pool. Water passes through the filter into the zone, which works as a natural filter. It then returns to the pool completely clean and pure.

The regeneration zone has the look and feel of a scenic water garden next to your pool. It takes up 30 to 50 percent of the total water surface area of your pool. Therefore, natural swimming pools are often slightly larger than traditional ones. A larger pool will give plenty of space to the zone and allow for a cleaner pool. As an added benefit, you will create a charming natural habitat for wildlife in your backyard. Therefore, your pool will require less traditional maintenance but more gardening over time. Note that any other natural features you add will increase your pool cost. Consult your natural pool builder for more details.

Perhaps the most appealing benefit of this type of pool is the lack of chemicals in the water. A conventional pool requires many chemicals, including chlorine, on a regular basis.
