16 Most Beautiful Organic Pool Ideas That Will Inspire You
An organic pool is easier to construct than a traditional chemically treated pool because you do not require any chemical or masonry equipment to clean the water properly. However it is still better to contact a qualified professional to make the design of your organic pool. Building a pool yourself is not a do-it-Yourself type of project, but rather a swimming pool designer will allow you to design the exact pool of your dreams using their expertise. If you are not comfortable in this area then it is wise to seek help from a local contractor who is knowledgeable about organic pool designs and construction. Organic pools can also be constructed over the traditional concrete structure and this has many advantages.
In an organic pool the entire structure is made of organic materials and so the plants and other organic matter that would normally be drained by a typical drain system cannot grow back into the structure. If algae or other types of plant growth should occur they will simply be flushed away into a pond and will not negatively impact your fish, wildlife, or your neighbors. With an organic pool you will also find that your water is cleaner because you will not have to use a filtration system like you would with a standard pool or spa and you can enjoy your pond for years to come without having to worry about its aesthetics.
One of the challenges of constructing an organic pool is the lack of access to treated swimming pool chemicals such as chlorine and sodium, which are the two most common chemicals used in conventional chlorinated pools. These chemicals are very expensive to buy and to purify and it would be a huge financial mistake to use them if you are considering building your own organic pool. If you must use them it is best to dilute the chemicals with tap water to make them less harsh but it is possible to get around this issue by using pool chemicals that are specially made for organic pools. You will need to purchase these chemicals in a regulated amount or grade so that your water remains healthy enough for your fish to survive and thrive. Some of these chemicals are also environmentally safe, so you may wish to avoid the more costly organic pool chemicals and use only the less expensive ones. Organic chemicals are not as harsh on your skin or hair as chlorine and sodium do and they do not have the damaging effects on your pond's ecosystem that chlorine and sodium have.
