Natural swimming pools are increasing in popularity. We all love a to take a dip in a cool pool when the weather is hot, but more and more of us are wary of the chemicals added to conventional pools. This is where the natural swimming pool comes in.
The water is cleaned by aquatic plants instead of chlorine so it is gentle on the eyes and healthy for swimmers. These self-cleaning ecosystems are beautiful to look at and provide a valuable water source for dragonflies, honeybees and other beneficial insects.
Wolfram Kircher has researched extensively into the low-nutrient dependent plants that are needed for the surrounds of natural swimming pools and the high-nutrient dependent plants that are required for the regeneration zone.
In this book he demonstrates how to maintain the nutrient level in perfect balance to keep down the algae down and water sparkling.
The authors have installed pools for decades and trialled different systems and plants to come up with the best possible designs.
