Natural Swimming Pools
We all know the sweet relief of a swimming pool, especially in South Carolina’s hot summer months. But if you happen to own or operate a pool, then you know how chemical intense keeping pool water clean can be. These days, the eco-conscious and design savvy homeowners are moving toward natural swimming pools. These incorporate aquatic plants and naturally occurring bacteria to filter and clean the water.
The bonus is that a natural pool doesn’t have to be shut down for the winter and tends to be less costly to maintain. The main difference between the traditional pool and a natural one is in the natural pools’ independence from artificial filtration. A natural pool has what is known as a regeneration zone where plants and natural filtering agents live. This can be directly adjacent to the swim basin or completely separate from it. With a little know how, you can convert an existing traditional pool into a natural one.
