In Europe, this technology has been proven and is in wide use, yet, in America, the popularity of these chemical free pools is just catching on. Our company; Expanding Horizons has developed a hybrid version of the Swim Pond that differs from the normal European model in various ways.
Environmental Artist Bryan Morse traveled to Thailand to consult on the construction of a Natural Swimming Pool adjacent to the Eco Villa under construction at the Six Senses Soneva Kiri Resort on the island of Koh Kood.
Unable to find any information about how to build a natural swimming pool, Morse said he “just went with what felt right” and built the pool as he would any other, with return lines, a main drain, skimmers and a pump. However, next to the pool he built two regeneration zones, which, unlike in European swim ponds, are completely separate from the swimming area.
