about this project

This project consisted of the conversion of an older natural swimming pool with plants to a pool without plants. The pool had been built by others, but to a poor standard with a plant filter that was too small and little support or maintenance .

Rather than upgrade the natural filtration our client opted for a totally natural chemical-free Pure Living Pool.  It is fitted with a solar heating cover. This gives temperatures 4-8c above maximum day time temperatures. Which means when it is 14-15c outside in October you can still be swimming in a pool that is above 20c without a scary fuel bill. Who would have thought that was possible?

We had an existing swimming pond which was constructed 12 years ago by another firm.  Unfortunately the regeneration area had grown out of control and the filter system had failed.

Natural Swimming Pools recommended that we re-construct the pool as a Biotop Living Pool. In a very short time the water cleared and the solar cover did its job of heating the water to a comfortable temperature. We now have crystal clear pure water to swim in every day.  The maintenance is very simple and takes very little time. With the solar cover giving free heating, the pool costs very little to run.

The staff were very helpful in taking us through the design stage and their installation team worked hard on site to create the best solution for us. The finished product is fantastic and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend NSP for their professional, helpful and friendly approach.
