Natural Smimming Pools - INSTALLATION

Installing a natural swimming pool is an invigorating endeavor that combines the refreshing allure of a traditional swimming pool with the ecological harmony of a naturally balanced aquatic ecosystem.


The process begins with careful planning and site selection. Assessing the landscape, considering sunlight exposure, and ensuring proper water circulation are crucial steps. Natural swimming ponds typically integrate seamlessly into the surrounding environment, providing a harmonious blend of water and flora.

Excavation marks the commencement of the physical transformation, shaping the pond’s form and creating designated areas for swimming and plant zones. The pond is constructed with a combination of rubber or PVC liners and gravel to maintain structural integrity while fostering a substrate for beneficial bacteria and aquatic plants. This combination creates a balanced ecosystem where plants contribute to water filtration, keeping the pond clear and naturally purified.


One of the defining features of natural swimming pool installation is the absence of traditional chemical treatments. Instead, these pools rely on the symbiotic relationship between plants and microorganisms to maintain water quality. A variety of aquatic plants, such as water lilies and submerged vegetation, play a crucial role in oxygenation and nutrient absorption, ensuring a healthy and sustainable aquatic environment. This method not only reduces the environmental impact but also provides swimmers with a chemical-free, skin-friendly experience.

The landscaping around the natural swimming pond is another key aspect of the installation process. Native plants are incorporated to enhance the pools aesthetic appeal and encourage biodiversity. Incorporating rocks, pebbles, and natural materials further enhances the pond’s visual integration into the surrounding landscape. A well-designed natural swimming pool becomes a focal point for your property, inviting people to relax in a serene environment that seamlessly blends with nature.


Once the installation is complete, the natural swimming pool requires minimal maintenance compared to a conventional pool. Routine checks on water quality, occasional removal of debris, and seasonal plant maintenance contribute to the longevity and sustainability of the ecosystem. Overall, the installation of a natural swimming pool not only transforms outdoor spaces into tranquil retreats but also champions a sustainable approach to water recreation.
