Armond Aquatech Pools
Hi - Thank you for your interest. Natural pools operate in the same fashion as a traditional pool. The water if passed through the filtration system and returned to the pool via a filter pump. In same cases a natural pool may need a longer run time in order to adequately filter the water which will increase your utility costs but not significantly. A variable speed filter pump will dramatically reduce energy costs vs. traditional single speed filter circulation pumps.

Not all natural pools require this much water pumping. The natural pool in this photo does not even have a pump. It's all about scientific design.

Thank you for the question. This pool is built out of steel reinforced gunite construction. There is a 3/8" gray marble plaster pool interior surface, a 6"x6" frost proof ceramic tile at the water line and PA Bluestone coping with a thermal edge. This pool is a natural pool and the bog area was built out of a liner which was fastened to the structure of the swimming pool because of weight restrictions and the slope the pool was built on. Ideally the bog would have been constructed out of steel reinforced gunite construction as well. The bog is filled with river rock and crushed stone.

Falon Land Studio LLC added this to Natural Swimming Pools: More Beauty, No Chemicals
How much space do you need? Natural swimming pools can be small enough for an urban yard or extra large for a rural property. The relationship between the regeneration and swimming zones can also vary depending on the space available. For instance, a rectilinear pool can be designed as the swimming area, with the water circulation apparatus running underground to the regeneration zone. In the most common setup, the regeneration zone is directly adjacent to the swimming zone, as shown here, with edges that allow for a specific volume of water to flow over the edge. Generally, the size of the zones should be equal for adequate water cleansing.

How they work. Natural swimming pools rely on a constructed wetland of plants and gravel to filter the water in an area called the regeneration zone. This zone is like a water garden; a variety of plants selected by a natural pool specialist or a landscape architect create an ecosystem that cleans the pool water.

A specialized water skimmer removes large debris that falls on the water’s surface in the swim zone. The skimmer is fitted with a fine sieve that removes small debris before the water is circulated into a biological filter. Additional equipment, like UV light filters and filters that use sand to remove phosphorous, is helpful in maintaining the balance in a natural pool system.

Natural swimming pool: How the zones interact. The regeneration zone’s size and depth are related to the volume of water to be cleaned. The planted zone is shallower than the swimming area. Clean water slowly flows from the planted zone into the swimming zone.
