Natural Pools – How It Works

This is a very specialized job that requires deep knowledge of the different types of beneficial bacteria and aquatic plants that can be introduced into the pool water. Here is some more information about exactly what these pools are and what is involved in their installation:

  • Unlike a chemically treated pool, that is sterile, a natural swimming pool contains beneficial microorganisms and plants that outcompete the harmful bacteria and algae for nutrients, leaving your pool water safe for swimming.
  • This pool is made up of two separate parts- the swimming area and the regeneration zone. The latter looks very much like a water garden or a charming pond and provides the perfect habitat for aquatic plants that effectively filter the water.
  • These plants take all the nutrients out of the water and create a hostile environment for algae. In addition, there are anaerobic and aerobic bacteria within the regeneration zone as well as the biological filter that eliminates other undesirable elements.
  • The water flows through the filter and is channeled into the regeneration zone after which it is directed to the main swimming area. Since the water is in constant motion, it is safe and clear for swimming.
