EcoPools pools are generally constructed in two parts: a bathing zone and another ecosystem zone. Both need to be in a waterproof and coated area, called "tank". Tanks can be constructed in a variety of ways and the choice of techniques and materials will depend on the available budget, preferred aesthetic aspect, existence of skilled labor on site, soil conditions, groundwater and environmental impact.
Your water filtration, also known as the ‘eco zone’ can be completely separated from your swimming pool, making the water crystal clear & any color of your preference.
(Depending on the flooring you choose)
There are different techniques for effectively waterproofing a pool tank. Some are more economical than others. Some are also more environmentally friendly, but require more maintenance. Considering the durability, guarantee of materials and quality of our workmanship, we have three preferred systems of installation and waterproofing of tanks which are canvases, prefabricated fibreglass tanks and reinforced concrete. Still, we are always willing to research, advise and install any other system our customers may choose.
For the aquatic landscaping of swimming pools, EcoPools designers use a wide variety of plants, including flowers and herbs, which include more than 75 species.
These plantation zones create ecosystems that interact with the ecological environment of the region where they are located. Thus, the selection of species is made considering their natural habitat, the specific requirements of the project and the types of particles that must be filtered in the water found on the site.
In our landscape projects, we also consider the origin of the selected plants, always using reliable suppliers and sustainable productions.
After running the installation project, we have provided our maintenance manual to our customers. In both construction and conversion cases, we explain the procedures for each project and, if necessary, include in the text of the manual any extra information specific to each case. Remembering that an ecological pool requires less maintenance than a conventional one, since it is nature herself who performs most of the cleaning.
Some small tasks, however, should be done regularly, such as emptying the skimmers and ensuring that the pool plantation area is not with too many leaves that might have fallen, for example, from some nearby tree. Even though we know that many clients like to take care of their ecological pool themselves, we have an efficient maintenance team that can be activated whenever necessary.
We do monthly maintenance on many of our pools, and we recommend that at least once a year the ecological and biological development of each facility, as well as its equipment, be reviewed.
