Natural swimming ponds, also called natural pools, are a wonderful way to recreate nature in your backyard. They offer a much lower maintenance alternative to conventional pools and allow you to swim in clean, chemical free water. Consider this comment from member, Emma O’Connor (left on our Natural Ponds blog):
“I would love one of these. As a swimming teacher by trade I spend much time in chlorinated water…. not fun for skin, hair or eyes.”
Wetlands have been purifying water for hundreds of millions of years so it should not surprise anyone that you can do the same in your backyard. In fact, a well designed natural pond is so efficient that they are becoming increasingly popular for use as public – yes, as in municipal, pools. Tests have proven conclusively that the water quality is superior to any chemically treated, conventional alternative!
