This book has been produced after requests from ll over the world for information on how to build a natural swimming pool. it takes the builder through all stages from understanding from understanding the system, management, excavation, lining, walling, plumbing, electrical, planting, structures and last but not least, the maintenance, to ensure a successful project.

Many people can still remember the joy of bathing and swimming in natural waters in the countryside, whether it was a lake river or a pond, in sunshine or moonlight, whatever the weather, with or without clothes, in groups or as a solitary soul, planned or spontaneous. Alas it has all changed and most children today will never ever be able to experience this due to numerous reasons such as health and safety, trespass and land ownership, litigation, polluted waters and many more.

However, not all is lost as there are now natural systems for private and public swimming that can be built for the enjoyment of everyone. Natural swimming pools are based on ponds and pools that were once found so abundantly in the landscape.

The comparison to a landscape pool is deliberate because that is what a natural swimming pool is a large pond with special provision for people to enjoy the water as well as the various creatures that are attracted to it. Nature offers the best examples.

Most pools, ponds and lakes are cleaned and purified by the combination of plants and micro-organisms including beneficial bacteria. These micro-organisms break down organic wastes into substances which plants can use directly as nutrients.

The pleasure of using natural water once again for bathing and swimming is now available to many people, whether it is in the privacy of their own home or publicly at a hotel, a park, or any recreational centre in the mountains or at the seaside! They are sheer bliss in which to swim and a joy to see.
