To Build a New Natural Pool

Building a New Natural Pool

A swimming pool is something a lot of people want to add to their house. Exercise, the pleasure of being in water, the social aspect of gathering around a pool, a type of fun that can be enjoyed by the whole family or with friends are among the benefits of building a backyard swimming pool. You can also go for a swim first thing in the morning as a way to start your day, cool off in the afternoon, or calm down in the evening with a swimming pool.

A lot of people don’t want a bunch of chlorine or other sanitary chemicals on their bodies every day, though. One option for swimming pools without the chemicals is the “natural pool.”

A “natural swimming pool” (sometimes called a “natural swimming pond”) is a pool that doesn’t use chemicals to disinfect or sterilize the water. Instead, the pool uses biological filters and / or plants that grow in the water.

For example, what can clean a pool without chemicals? UV rays, ozone, copper / silver ions.

Natural swimming pools can be built from scratch, or can be modified from existing chemically-cleaned pools.

We found My Natural Pool, which provides information on natural swimming pools, as well as selling pdf ebooks on the subject (including swimming pool plans) for around $75.00 for a natural filtration system guide and  $30 for a making-a-natural-pool guide (click here to visit them). They also deal with Aqua Diamante, which is a chlorine free and pH-independent broadband sanitizer for pools, another option for a chemical-free natural swimming pool for people’s back yards.
