If the heat isn’t on in you’re
neighborhood, it soon will be. That means it’s time to hit the pool. Whatever
it takes to cool down is the first order of business for some. Others may have
it made in the shade with a good book, while the kids splash around. Having a
residential pool is a great luxury, but dealing with irritations from chlorine
and other chemicals can sour the experience. If you’ve thought about installing
a pool, you can certainly stick with traditional swimming pools, but there’s a new wave of natural ponds and
hybrid pools that might be worth a toe dip.
These green pools are generally
constructed with a dual purpose. First, they give the user an alternative choice to chlorine pools.
Exposure to harsh chemicals and
unbalanced PH levels can hurt the eyes and damage hair. Second, natural pools
provide limitless beauty and filter the
water without the use of chlorine. These types of swimming pools have existed
in Europe for years without a health incident. The key to these pools is
getting the circulation system down pat. Once that’s working properly, the rest
takes care of itself. Oh, but what about
dealing with that Caddyshack incident? You remember the Baby Ruth, right? The experts say bugs will destroy something
like that. Simple as that.
The natural swimming pool I want to
focus on is a compromise between natural pools and conventional swimming pools.
It’s a Hybrid pool designed by Expanding
Horizons. This California-based company incorporates technology from
standard pools, like main drains, surface skimmers, and pool cleaners. They
enhance pool experience by adding perimeter boulders, along with beach entries
and natural water plants. Separate from the pool is a filtration system, filled
with water loving plants. The water is
cleaned by the plants in the restoration area, and then delivered to the pool
by a free flowing stream.
