A lot of people in the Sandton and surrounding areas have swimming pools that cost money to maintain. Firstly a swimming pool is full of chemicals that are toxic and UN natural. Money is spent on acid and chloor to maintain clear water. The chemicals affect our eyes, skin and hair. Not good for your carbine footprint on this planet.
The swimming pool in Parkwood is 38 000 liters to start with. We split the pool in two sections. Section 1 is the Wetland area. The Wetland is the main filter for the pond. The Wetland is filled with filtration pebbles and plants. This becomes a ECO system in time. Within days you will notice Dragonflies, Damselflies and other insects exploring the wetland. Over time frogs and even crabs will inhabit the Wetland. Section 2 is the Pond area where the Koi and other fish are located. The Pond fills up with water via the pump. the water overflows into the Wetland and filters thru the plants and gravel before being sucked back to the pump. The debris settles at the lowest point of the Wetland and needs to be flushed out every 6-12 months. When sections of the plant life die off during the winter months, the debris rot and dissolve into the Wetland to become food for the plants. This is a natural cycle. Algae will grow in the Pond and Wetland. Algae are a plant and needs to be controlled in the system. If you remove the Koi and other fish from the pond you have a Natural Swimming Pool. It is a selling feature to have a Natural Swimming Pool or Wetland/Pond.[/vc_column_text][vc_gallery interval=”3″ images=”57640″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
