Chemical Free Pool Alternative

Fed up with the red eyes and itchy skin that chlorine can cause? Swim ponds or natural pools are a chemical free alternative delivering exceptional water quality as mother nature intended. Bathing in a natural swim pond can leave you feeling fresh and rejuvenated.

Swim ponds can be attributed to the likes of swimming in a creek or waterhole with plants and fish, all creating a natural balanced ecosystem.

How Does A Swim Pond Function

Swim Ponds or Natural Pools mimic nature and utilise plants, rocks and gravel to biologically filter your water. Water is pumped up through a wetland filter and normally returned to the main pond by means of a waterfall, which creates oxygenation of the water.

Plants in the system take up nutrient and help deliver vital oxygen to the environment where as rock and gravel create an immense surface area for good microscopic beneficial bacteria to colonise and break down waste nutrients into less harmful substances.

Do Swim Ponds or Natural Pools Need More Maintenance Than Traditional Pools?

No, natural pools or swim ponds generally require less maintenance than a traditional pool. There are still routine chores such as emptying the skimmer basket and just like a garden it will require periodical weeding. Regular removal of dead and decaying plant matter is an excellent way of exporting nutrient from the pond.

Wetland filters do require an annual deep clean and it is advised to vacuum the gravel on the bottom annually as well. Our team can provide training on how to carry out this work or do it for you on a routine schedule.

What Our Clients Have To Say

We are thrilled to have an “Aquascapes System” pond, designed to mimic nature, built by Pond Works as a focal point to our home. From my very first discussions with Mark I established that he was conscientious, down to earth, knowledgeable and friendly. We are extremely lucky to have a Pond Works pond in our entertaining area. We heartily recommend that you consider having a pond or water feature built by Pond Works.

We are besotted with the pond and water feature, and have been out every night, even in last night’s rain, to have an unwind time. We have already had some interest from friends and neighbours who love it too. Many thanks for all the care and time you took to engineer this for us”

Claire & Mike
We can’t thank the Pond Works team enough for most amazing pond and outdoor space which has transformed the way our daily home schooling lessons are done. I’d also like to thank Mark for providing the most amazing educational resources. I incorporated the Pond Activity Guide and Work Sheets into our lesson plans. Being able to watch the children learn and interact with nature at home has been such a blessing.
