As more and more people understand the threat posed by global warming, they’re turning to safer alternatives—eco-friendly pools. In fact, it’s become quite the buzzword these days.
An eco-friendly pool is designed to be as environmentally friendly as possible. They’re built from eco-friendly materials, but they also run efficiently—thereby saving you energy and money in the long run.
Here are some eco-friendly pool alternatives you might want to consider.
They’re low-tech, affordable, and chemical-free. You can construct them with clay and gravel instead of fiberglass and concrete. These pools can be cleaned with aquatic plants instead of a filtering system or chlorine. These plants also good bacteria and oxygen that boosts your health. You can also include vertical gardens for efficiency.
Natural pools typically have two zones: one is the regeneration zone, where you’ll find the aquatic plants. In the other zone, you’ll have the swimming area. The water is cleaned because it’s constantly moving from one zone to the next.
Natural pools aim to mimic the ecosystem of lakes, ponds, and other water bodies to ensure a sustainable environment.
High Water Technology Treatment Pools
This is a relatively new option in the market and uses technology to keep the pool eco-friendly. The water purification system uses nanocrystals, UV technology, and hydroxyl radicals to produce eco-friendly water. The water produced has no salt, chlorine, or chemicals. The water is so pure; it’s like swimming in bottled water.
The UV technology uses a ceramic catalyst chamber to eliminate microorganisms, bacteria, and viruses. The nanocrystals prevent the colonization of bacteria while the hydroxyl radicals maintain the mineral levels in the pool.
Europeans have been using saltwater pools since time immemorial. Not only are they good for the environment, but also good for your skin. They keep the skin smooth by killing bacteria. Saltwater pools use salt-chlorine generators. So when you add salt, the generator converts it into chlorine while making the water softer and more sustainable.
