Natural swimming pools in Ontario, having become tremendously popular in Europe over the past 20 years or so, are just starting to catch on here. So what exactly, you ask, is a natural swimming pool?
Natural swimming pools are filtered by plants, aeration, and beneficial bacteria, rather than using chlorine or salt as a sterilizing agent. Avoiding these chemicals has many health and environmental benefits, while the design of natural swimming pools, which can be made to look like a completely natural pond or water feature, allows for the creation of a landscape feature that conventional pools simply can’t compare with.
Here are a couple great videos from the UK explaining the ins and outs of natural swimming pools.
