Click on the pictures below to see a gallery and short description of our recent Pure Living Pools without Plants projects:
Our latest pool was the conversion of an older natural swimming pool to a pure living pool . The pool had been built by others, but to a poor standard with too small a plant filter and little guidance or support or maintenance .
Rather than uprade the natural filtration our client opted for a totally natural chemical-free Pure Living Pool. Now virtually maintenance-free . Note the robot in the pool. This comes on automatically each day for a week at atime before emptying. The pool is small and has minimal costs to run; electricity of about £50 per year and every two years replacement filter media of £500.
Heating is free. It is fitted with a solar heating cover. This gives temperatures 4-8c above maximum day time tempertures. Which means when it is 14-15c outside in October you can still be swimming in a pool that is above 20c without a horrendous fuel bill. Who would have thought that was possible?
Our first plant free pure-living pool in the UK has worked well with a solar heating cover. At at the end of September 2014 it was 24C, way beyond expectations of the owner and paying guests.
It is 23m long to match the adjacent barn 3.5metres wide and 1.5metres deep with a jet black liner and Cornish Delabole slate steps and surround.
For an outstanding swimming pool:
1. Take the roof off of an old stone barn
2. Put a pure- living pool with a green liner in the floorspace below
