the natural swimming pool
Natural swimming pools are becoming popular in Europe and I think we can all see the appeal. These pools actually remind me of my parents who always seem to be adding one more tier or waterfall to their pond. As the the pond has grown larger and larger, my moms dream of a small lap pool have taken a back seat. With a natural pool, they could have the best of both worlds as long as they don’t mind brushing against Shock, the biggest of their koi.
Natural pools are more similar to a lush vegitated pond with the added benfit of being able to take a dip. If you swim everyday I am sure your skin will thank you for eliminating the clorine and other pool chemicals. The plants and rock filter the water as it is drawn through into an ultraviolet filter that takes care of any lingering bacteria. Here is a link to an article by Greenbydesign that explains more about these pools.
