Open your eyes, and immerse yourself in nature...
Have you ever gone for an exuberant swim in a lake or pond and then longed for this freshwater experience at home, in your own swimming pool, without the eye-burning chemicals and chlorine? Do you think that a pool can be more than just sterile, lifeless water in a concrete shell?
If yes, then a Natural Swimming Ponds (NSPs) might be right for you. NSP’s are anything but sterile. They are aquatic ecosystems, designed to look, feel and function like a natural pond. Water quality is maintained with mechanical and biological filters in tandem with lush aquatic plant filters—the signature feature—surrounding an open swim zone. The plant filters, in turn, provide a habitat for birds, dragonflies, frogs, turtles, newts, and a host of other fauna. The result is an unparalleled freshwater swimming experience, drenched in nature.
