Natural Swimming Pools = A Chemical Free Oasis for You & Your Family
If you love the idea of having a private area in your landscape to float, play, and swim, but thought this just wasn’t possible without the use of chemicals, think again. Natural pools offer an idyllic environment that is simple to own, naturally-filtered, and chemical-free resulting in low operating costs and easy maintenance.
Natural swimming pools offer a space that is contemplative, reflective, and meditative - completely synchronized with the surrounding, living environment. Clear, sparkling water, which is not artificially blue and without an overbearing chlorinated odor, invite you to spend warm Boulder days floating in your own private oasis.
Natural Swimming Pool Design in Harmony with Nature
By uniquely incorporating aquatic plants in a separate area in the pool, natural swimming pools benefit from a living ecosystem that serves as a virtually chemical-free water purification filter system. The pool is clean, fresh, inviting, and beautiful!
Modern, natural water filtration exists in about 30-40 percent of the pool area depending on surface area and depth. By including landscaping and planting design into your pool, you can extend the beauty of your garden, add visual interest, and enjoy a pool that does not require expensive, chlorinated chemicals to keep it balanced.
Just like a pond or natural swimming hole, during the Colorado winter your natural swimming pool will safely freeze and naturally hibernate until spring. Many run throughout the winter. The warming of the sun regulates the swimming pool temperature and will thaw the water and welcome you when the days lengthen and warm up.
Pools can be formal or blend into the outdoor landscape; plus, we can convert existing traditional swimming pools to become naturally beautiful and beneficial swimming spots for you and your family!
The benefits of natural swimming pools are extensive:
- No need for chlorine or other chemicals to maintain water balance
- Organic algicides keep algae at bay
- Low maintenance and problem-free
- Fast, efficient water warming with the Colorado sun
- Water is gentle on the hair, skin, and avoids adverse reactions to chlorine
