How does a chemical free pool work?
In a chemical free swimming pool the water is firstly filtered through a biological filter.
This filter can be either sand/gravel as is the case in a Natural Pool or it can consist of layers of foam mats as in the Living Pool.
Millions of microorganisms that settle in these filters purify the water by breaking down organic matter into inorganic forms of phosphorous. This process is known as mineralisation.
Phosphorous can then be taken up by a secondary, special phosphor filter and is thus less available as nutrient for algae, therefore keeping the algae growth at a minimum. Together these two filter systems produce crystal clear water. In addition phosphorous can also be utilised by plants as it is in a Natural Pool.
The precious nature of water constitutes a complex chemistry, ever changing and behaving and reacting differently. Hence each and every natural pool will not be the same. Different geographical locations and their climatological conditions, the influence of natural elements as well as the individual and unique design have an impact on the constantly changing balance of natural living water.
The look of a regular pool, without the chemicals
The perfect symbiosis of biology and technology. A Living Pool is the organic version of the swimming pool with Living Water.
The Living Pool requires absolutely no chlorine or other toxic chemicals and still offers the ultimate in swimming enjoyment in crystal clear water.
A place of peace and harmony in an increasingly hectic world
The organic design gives the impression that the natural pool has always been there. The peaceful water brings a new dimension into the garden, creating a soothing effect. Biotop Natural Pools are characterised by their simple and natural design, gentle and rounded forms and pool edges that merge with the surroundings.
The carefully planned planting of a special regeneration zone ensures clean and pure water.

To extend the swimming season our chemical free pools can be heated up to 27 degrees Celsius. You can choose a heat pump or a solar heating system.
From submersible pumps, pool skimmers and energy saving pool covers, from mood lighting to robotic pool cleaners we can offer advice.
We have come up with some dollar saving ideas for fencing around your pool area to blend into the landscaped surroundings, without making it feel like a prison.
I spent a whole year researching swimming pools: concrete, fibreglass shell, fibre glass liner, vinyl liner, chlorine, UV, ozone, salt, magnesium etc. but it wasn’t until I came across the Natural Pool Company that it all started to make sense.
Alex and Hans built a pool that is a piece of art made specifically for its location, not a product punched out to meet a quota. They were also a pleasure to work with. The finished pool is simply everything I wanted it to be.
No one has swum in my pool without remarking on the sweet clear beauty of the water. There is no water maintenance to do. It just looks after itself.
But be warned, once you have one of these pools, you’ll never again enjoy the pools in luxury hotels or resorts because they simply won’t be as good as your own.”
