What is EcoPools ?
EcoPools recreate pristine swimming ponds and mountain pools found in nature. The water is kept sparkling clean by circulating it through a living ecosystem of water plants. The result is a lush indigenous aquatic garden cradling a clear, natural pool, the water of which is perfectly clean, soft on the skin and infused with healing energy. No Salt, no chemicals, no sterilisation equipment.

Why EcoPools ?
As opposed to conventional pools, Natural Swimming Pools® function as living ecosystems. When properly designed these systems encourage the growth of beneficial microorganisms, plants and animals which work together to outcompete algae and detrimental bacteria. This results in water that is absolutely clear and pure enough to drink.
Swimming in water that has been cleaned by plants feels soft on the skin and leaves hair and eyes naturally hydrated. Many of the plants in the ecosystem are medicinal and bathing in water that has passed through their roots has been claimed by clients to have
a deeply healing and soothing quality. Eco Pools are the beautiful, modern, conscious alternative to sterile, blue pools.
Low running cost | realistic energy savings of up to 70% can be achieved. Eco Pools can potentially pay for themselves in under 10 years. Pumps can be easily accommodated within a renewable energy supply for this reason.
No chemical costs | the natural ecosystem keeps water crystal clear, all year round.
Low maintenance | only vacuuming of the bottom and trimming of the plants are required.
Warmer water | the shallow ecosystem is heated passively by the sun.
Year-round enjoyment | the animals, plants and flowers in the ecosystem can be enjoyed year round, not just for a few months a year.
Long term renovation saving | the soft, chemical free water does not damage linings, shells, pipes or pumps.
Landscaping opportunities | Eco Pools can be integrated into the landscaping and will not damage surrounding plants.
Wetland species conservation | frogs & other threatened species breed in the ecosystem. Frogs, generally, do not enter the swimming zone as they feel too exposed there.
Emergency water storage | in case of temporary water cuts, the clean water in an Eco Pool can be a valuable source of potable water.
