Hi TC-Lynx

Quote : With the unique biological Aquaviva concept the optic quality of the water is similar to a traditional swimming pool but without the use of chemicals. Furthermore the area for the regeneration zone can be reduced to 20% for private pools. That means that 80%of the area can be used for swimming.
from here : http://mynaturalpool.com.au/index.php

This koiphen build thread http://www.koiphen.com/forums/showthrea ... highlight=
might also contain some good info & tips, on the matter ?

and finaly this https://www.inspirationgreen.com/natura ... l?start=40
have numerous pics & links embeded

cheers


Thanks SolTun, I'll have to check out those links.
Hum, now I have to wrap my head around what number 55,000 gallons is 80% of so I can figure out 20% for the regeneration area :flower:

Ok the Aquaviva site is trying to sell their $149 manual so they are careful to keep infomation on their site kinda general.

55000 : 0.8 = 68750
so an aditional 13750 gallons
or alternative you take 20% the excisting 55000 (11000) and end up with 44000gallon pool/swim area.

I didn't know(remember) that they charged any for a manual, I just had it bookmarked as a natural pool, or swim pond is in my own, future plans.

cheers

The https://www.inspirationgreen.com/natural-pools-swimming-ponds.html?start=40

There is another company https://www.totalhabitat.com/about-natural-swimming-pools.html
Which is also selling a manual for $99. This one is apparently better suited to warmer climates than the European based methods. Probably primarily because they also specify UV sterilization.

The big challenge for this neighbor's pool is that the deck is way high compared to the water depth in the pool.
As I noted, this is a very old fixture that was built because of a spring on the property. Once upon a time I think the pool was simply a flow through of the spring water so the only issue was keeping the algae down. Now days there is a pump and a filter and chlorine gets used though in relatively small quantities. There isn't as much spring water exchanging through it now days, I don't think there is as much flow from the spring as there used to be.

Draining the pool down is a major feet apparently (gets done once a year I guess to do a deep pressure cleaning.) Requires bringing in a huge pump that can suck water out of the pool faster than the spring can replenish it. Even when the valve is closed, spring water will re-fill the bottom of the pool slowly.

Anyway it is a rectangular pool with concrete all around. The concrete deck is probably 18-24" above the water line at the lowest points and perhaps 30-48" above around the deep end. The shallow end of pool is at least 3' water depth and the deep end I don't remember what they said but perhaps as much as 12-14'.
There are no gentle steps to get in, only pool ladders.

Does anyone know of a good way to build a wall inside the pool? Without draining it? I'm not sure how one would go about placing the regeneration zone inside the pool in this case and the way the concrete pool deck is, you can't really extend the pool out either. I fear the regeneration zone would have to be physically removed to a different part of the yard and would need to be so large as to cause them to not even consider the option.
