Let Nature clean the water
Have you ever thought about how many pounds of chemicals go into a typical swimming pool and how harmful they are? We use plants instead of chemicals to clean the water, a concept that has been in vogue in Europe for decades, but is sadly underused in India.
The plant portion, or regeneration zone, is separated from the swimming area by the wall a few inches below the water’s surface.The pools have skimmers and pumps that circulate the water through the regeneration zone and back into the swimming area. The aquatic plants filter out contaminants and use nutrients from the water as food, preventing the growth of algae. Then rocks, such as granite river rock or haydite, to which friendly bacteria attach, act as biological filters. Beneficial bacteria (micro-organisms and microbes) colonize the rock and help cleanse the water.
Plants: A range of aquatic plants are used — submerged (oxygenators), floating, shallow marginals, deep marginals, bog/marsh and waterside species. Whenever possible, it is best to use indigenous plants. Some examples of typical water plants: cattails, bulrushes, sedges, duckweed and water lilies.
Natural predators such as water striders and dragonflies will come to live in the enrichment area and feast on mosquitoes. If you chose to have a skimmer installed this will keep mosquitoes in check as well.
