|Building a Natural Swimming Pool
I seems a lot harder than what it actually is. Depending on
your choice for style, Natural or Formal its only a matter of
getting your head around a few facts and Secrets of the Trade,
of how to build the Natural Filtration System. One important
aspect is the edging of the pool - no surface water/runoff
whatsoever is allowed into the pool, as it introduces too much
nutrition, which might introduce algae or worst case turn your
water green. A closed circuit of revolving water is best.
Most important - what should the finished project look like? What
suits best to your property and your lifestyle? What design
increases the value of your property most? Then its about whether
you want to build it yourself, or use a pool builder for a
prefabricated fiberglass pool shell or soft edging concrete pool.
Really, the only limitation is your imagination.
