For those who have the right spaces in their garden at their disposal, the swimming pool has always been a dream that often shatters against the fear of overspending and extremely prolonged work. However, many ignore the possibility of building, at very low cost, a natural swimming pool , a quick, economical and above all biological solution, in favor of good environmental sustainability. What is a natural swimming pool
Many do not know in the least what they are talking about, so it is good to make the subject in question clear before proceeding further. If for swimming pools one usually has in mind the idea of ​​a large, completely artificial container of water, to be emptied in winter and purified with chemicals of all kinds, from chlorine to anti-algae, the natural pool goes into the opposite direction. It is a totally organic solution , the appearance is more similar to that of a small lake or a small oasis , complete with attached vegetation. In fact, a natural swimming pool does not require any purification plant or chemicals, but will be populated by living plants and microorganisms to keep the water clean and free of contaminants. The aesthetic impactand absolutely unique, it will seem to have brought an oasis into your garden, without destroying or damaging the surrounding environment, nor the wallet of those who decide to build one.How to design a natural pool
Obviously, although it is a natural solution, there will always be a need for careful and well-organized work upstream. The design is very important and must already give an idea of ​​the materials to buy, how to carry out the work, and the overall costs. First of all you will have to check whether or not your garden is suitable for hosting a natural swimming pool, which means evaluating your spaces and above all the quality of your land.
For these operations and for the construction of the natural pool it is necessary to contact a company such as Acqua Tecnica Piscine , a company from Mantuaspecialized not only in the construction of traditional swimming pools, but also in this sector.
Designing a natural swimming pool means paying attention to many aspects. Basically we talk about a logic based on environmental sustainability, thinking about what are the stones (totally natural to use) and the suitable plants, and the right conformation of the source pond in which the water will be purified naturally, and the area actually bathing. If these concepts, from such a general point of view, could seem very complex, once we have seen in detail the various phases of the construction everything will be much clearer.The main working phases
First of all, after having established the actual bathing area of ​​the pool in the design phase, having thought as much about the length and width as about the depth, we will move on to digging the earth just to get what we thought. With a digger and a little elbow grease, everything will be done even in less than a morning’s work. Having done this, once satisfied with the result, you will have to make everything more solid with bricks of various types, or if you want also using stones, creating a real drywall (operation to be entrusted to professionals).
At this point, a wider but shallower excavation will have to be carried out around the bathing area. This is the place where the actual purification will take place, and it is the most important operation ever for the creation of a natural swimming pool. The advice is to cover the excavated earth with specific waterproof panels, not harmful to the environment (for example in polyurethane foam), and specific sheets essential to prevent water from seeping into the soil. Once you have ensured total coverage on both excavations, taking care not to leave uncovered areas, you will cover everything with common wooden beams. At this point you can move on to cover everything with soil and sand and gravel of various thickness. After having enclosed everything with dry stone walls and wooden fences,How to purify the water of a natural swimming pool
Obviously what has been said is sufficient only for the construction of the entire swimming pool structure. The concept is that of a pond with a swimming pool installed in the center. In fact, during the processing phase, it was necessary to ensure that the water from the external excavation flows, as if it were a spring, to the actual swimming pool, the one for bathing, through special streams obtained by digging.
Using a low wattage pump will help move the water from the pond to the pool. The importance of this operation lies in the fact that thanks to the movement of the water through the gravel and the plants, which purify the water due to their natural properties, you will have a swimming pool that is always clean and in a totally biological way. The secret of natural pools is precisely this: the self-purification given by the movement of water within that macrosystem that will be created. Plants: how to choose them
Speaking of this microsystem, one cannot ignore the fact that thanks to plants, as well as gravel and natural stones, everything will be possible. Even in the case of the choice of plants, it is advisable to contact an expert. Generally speaking, we recommend those plants that combine their purifying function with a unique and unrepeatable aesthetic impact, while guaranteeing very limited costs. We are talking about floating, rooted or submerged plants. To give some examples, we can mention duckweed or nymphaeaceae which, in addition to oxygenating the water, will give the pool a particularly exotic appearance. But we must not forget either the classic bamboo canes, or the foxtail, which helps to greatly limit the proliferation of those algae that would make the water darker and cloudy.
The plants, of course, will be grown in the purification area, in the pond, not inside the bathing area where they could be in the way. As for the overall costs, it is difficult to make an a priori estimate, universally understood for everyone, however we are talking about a sum up to five times lower than some very elaborate swimming pools rich in artificial products.
Furthermore , the advantage of a totally natural swimming pool will be that of letting flora and fauna proliferate, keeping the water always clean, without the need to discharge various types of residues in sewers or similar.
