What To Know About Natural Pools

In the past few years, requests for custom swimming pools have increased as more people engage in recreation at home. The popularity of natural pools is on the rise. These are manmade pools that rely on nature instead of chemicals for maintenance. Although most residential pools are chlorinated, building a natural pool has a few advantages. Learn more about the pros and cons of natural pools below. Cruz Landscaping, located in Lexington, South Carolina, can help you design and build a custom swimming pool or just add some new features to your existing one.

Advantages of Natural Pools

There are two main parts to a natural pool: the swimming area and the regeneration zone, which contains plants that will clean and filter the water. Natural pools require little maintenance, which is one of their greatest advantages. The cost of cleaning chemicals and testing water can be reduced by using plants and gravel for filtration. In addition, natural pools do not need to be covered in the winter. Pools that are located in areas that get below freezing thaw in warmer months.

Natural pools are a perfect choice if you want to build a pool that fits your landscape. A natural pool's shell is usually made from concrete, but many customers paint it black to give it a more natural appearance.

Negatives of Natural Pools

You will typically need more site space to build a natural pool since it has two areas. In addition, upfront costs can be up to $20,000 more than traditional pools. The traditional pool is a better option if you prefer blue, crystal-clear water. Due to the algae and sediment in the water, the water in natural pools typically has brownish tones. Natural pools may also attract wildlife due to the presence of native plants around their regeneration zones.
