Are there any special considerations i need to make when building a natural or man-made swimming pool?

The pavement or environment of the pool and the materials of the path must be chosen carefully to ensure the safety of people and prevent excessive pollution from entering the pool water, as well as from an aesthetic point of view. Surfaces must be non-slip, not have unduly cracks or irregularities, must not be sandy or silty, and must be placed on an adequately stable base. Special attention should be paid if very heavy objects are going to be placed, such as garden buildings or hot tubs. In addition to traditional stone and stone-like materials, many synthetic decorative surfaces are also available to surround pools.

Like any pool, natural pools can be a potential safety hazard and may be subject to municipal regulations. Before undertaking such a project, be sure to familiarize yourself with the legal responsibilities, as swimming pools may require security fences depending on the depth. If you jump over the bottom of the pool, you can create depth in the center and, at the same time, bring the base to a shallower depth on the sides. Here you can use stone or sand bags to form walls.

While there are still no legal obligations governing the safety of swimming pools in the United Kingdom, such as in countries such as France or Australia, the protection and safety of swimming pools should be taken into account, especially when there are young children in the family, to prevent unauthorized access to the pool when there is no adult supervision and, therefore, minimize the risk of accidental drowning. For anyone who wants to try the construction of organic pools on their own, the costs will, of course, be much lower. With the opening of the Kingscross Pond Club during the holiday and the M&G garden at the RHS Chelsea flower show last week, with a beautiful swimming pond (with swimmers synchronized with floral hats), it is quite possible that you will be inspired to excavate that unused part of your own garden and create your own “refuge” for swimming without chemicals by building a swimming pool. The natural pools were inspired by the beauty and pleasure of swimming in mountain lakes.

A team of Austrian researchers is credited with launching a movement in the 1980s that replaced chlorinated pools with natural pools and ponds. Fertilizers and urine are the two main sources of this nutrient, so make sure your pool is free of nutrient-rich runoff and remind everyone to go to the bathroom before swimming. Any of the pool construction methods described in the previous article can be used to build an outdoor pool. When choosing to buy a pool, you may be overwhelmed by the number of options you have.

Heating a pool: the 10 best tips for a cost-effective pool & eco-friendly ways to heat a pool, including planning 26% of building a pool to save energy. You end up sharing your bathroom with all your life (stationary and mobile) that keep your pool clean and uncluttered. Design and complexity will be the most important factors in determining the cost of a natural pool built by professionals compared to a conventional chlorinated pool in the backyard. With this small natural pool, you can rub the pool with a net of leaves, but if you want them to be skimmed out automatically, consider using a balance tank to avoid complicated adjustments to the pool.

One of the main reasons why traditional pools are built with a steel structure is to ensure that the walls remain vertical and perpendicular to the bottom surface of the pool. Although fairly common in Europe, natural pools (such as the one pictured above in an Austrian family's backyard) are in their infancy in the United States. The measures to be evaluated would include fencing the pool area with an appropriate fence and lockable door, a specially designed safety cover (a cover that complies with the French standard NF P90-308 is considered a safety cover; check with the manufacturer, since most pool covers are not considered safety covers unless otherwise stated), a certified alarm system (water sensors or infrared rays that activate the alarm when activated), or a housing that can be fixed to their place and lock themselves.
