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.
