The Benefits of a Natural Pool
Nothing is better than having a pool in the backyard, they’re great during the summer, make your backyard look better, and raise the value of your property. On the other hand, they require quite a bit of maintenance to care for. The pH levels have to be carefully monitored, expensive and dangerous chemicals needed to be added, and their filtration systems need to be regularly cleaned out. There is a much easier way to have a pool in your backyard that doesn’t require all of the maintenance or cost that a normal pool involves.
A natural pool is a beautiful extension of your backyard that regulates itself without the need for expensive systems or chemicals. A natural pool uses plants and a simple water pump to keep the water clear and bacteria-free. A natural pool consists of two pools, one pool is just like a traditional pool, it has a cement or plastic liner that can be as shallow or as deep as you would like. The other pool is much more shallow and is host to a bunch of water plants, like cattails or water lilies. A pump cycles the water from the large swimming pool to the plant-filled pool removing bacteria and any contaminants.
A natural pool costs about as much to install as a traditional pool but because you do not have to have to add chemicals yearly it will save you hundreds of dollars every year. The most you will have to do is skim leafs of off the surface. Where a normal pool requires you to not only regularly add chemicals, like chlorine, it also uses quite a bit of electricity to run. With a natural pool, you will start saving money from the day you install it.
Probably the best part about owning a natural pool is the look. It’s more than just a pool, it can be part of your home’s landscaping. They have clear blue waters and are surrounded by beautiful flora. The flora then attracts all sorts of insects and animals that help keep dangerous and annoying insects out of the pool, such as mosquitoes. A natural pool is a beautiful self-contained ecosystem, that is not only self-regulating but is beautiful and tranquil. If you’re lucky enough to live in a warmer climate you can swap out the plants for a simple gravel filtration system. A gravel filtration system gives you the ability to make your natural pool look just like a traditional pool
Rather than installing a traditional pool that takes a lot of work to maintain, and requires a lot of expensive, harmful chemicals, consider installing a natural pool on your property instead. It will give you all of the benefits of a traditional pool, but it requires much less work. A pool should be more than just a place to swim. It should be a beautiful place to relax and enjoy a warm summer day, and a natural pool is just that. And, probably most important is that it is better for the environment.
