­running costs for chlorination and heating.
Some upkeep is necessary, however. Leaves
have to be removed from the surface of the
water, for instance, or overgrown water plants
trimmed back. The time required for mainte-
nance is around the same as that for a con-
ventional pool. These, incidentally, can also
be transformed into living ponds using a
­special “converter system”. That’s the perfect
solution for anybody who wants to keep a
“real” swimming pool of the old sort, but
wants to dispense with chemicals.
NATURAL WATER IS GOOD  
FOR THE SKIN
Natural swimming ponds are filled with
mains water which, thanks to the plants, is
constantly filtered. This makes the water ultra
soft and gentle on the skin. There is no risk of
irritation to skin, hair and eyes as can so often
be the case with chlorinated, conventional
pools. That’s a really big bonus for people
with sensitive skin and atopic dermatitis. An
important point to remember: to avoid upset-
ting the sensitive ecosystem, you shouldn’t
apply chemical sunscreen before jumping
into the pond.
BIOTOPES DELIGHT THE SOUL
A natural swimming pond offers a rich expe-
rience of nature, and is a source of regenera-
tion and relaxation. Nature puts on a glorious
pageant before one’s very eyes. Water in a
garden pond is full of life. A look through­
a magnifying glass or microscope will reveal
a miraculous world – one that’s particularly
enthralling for children. And once you’ve
seen a swallow swooping to drink, observed
dragonflies dancing, or listened to the call of
toads and tree frogs, you will never want to
swap your natural swimming pond for a
­boring polyester pool.
Natural swimming ponds are also
­increasingly being built for public use.
The AVITA Therme in Bad Tatzmanns-
dorf, Austria, or the Therme Obernsees
in Mistelgau, Germany have their own
natural swimming ponds, for example.
In London, north of King’s Cross ­St.
Pancras station, an Austrian-built natu-
ral swimming pond is causing a sen-
sation.
