    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.

    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.
