Typically, UK outdoor home swimming pools
are limited to summer months, remaining unused and covered for the remainder of the year.
By contrast, some 'natural' swimming pools can assume the characteristics of a natural lake, following the seasonal changes of the garden or the environment in which they appear.
Natural swimming pools, are a chemical free combination
of swimming zone and aquatic plant garden.
These ecologically balanced, self cleaning swimming
pools combine the natural cleaning properties of plants with
filtration and skimming systems so that there is no need for harmful chemicals.
The result is a biologically chemical free clean swimming
environment. The water is clear but not sterilised, as in the traditional swimming pool, and it is able to sustain the normal range of pond life, microscopic organisms, invertebrates and even frogs and toads.
