04/18/2017 Au naturel swimming pools were a big trend in Europe during the mid-80s. The chlorine alternative, faded out before it made its way down under – until now. Natural swimming pools have begun to pop up in residential project across Australia, and a handful of companies are now creating custom designs for sustainably-minded renovators. Here’s what you need to know.
What is a natural pool?
Natural Swimming pools are a chemical free alternative to the chlorinated and salt water swimming pools that are most commonly seen in Aussie backyards. In a natural swimming pool, a biofilter system keeps the pool water clean in place of chlorine, using plants to filter the water.
Natural pools are made up of two parts; the swimming area and the regeneration zone – this is where the magic happens. Using the same principles as nature, the regeneration zone uses a variety of plants, such as water lilies, sedges and rushes, to feed on the water’s bacteria. The water then passes through a filter, back into the regeneration zone and into the swimming area.
A secondary filter system stops the water becoming stagnant, so bugs and mosquitoes don’t become reoccurring guests.
Natural pools not only promise a swim free of red eyes, itchy skin and green hair, but also a number of cost benefits as the pool automatically cleans and cares for itself.
Designs range from pond styles to more traditional looking pools, If the temperature reaches sub zero, you’re looking at owning your very own ice rink.
