Water as an adornment and apex of the garden. Thanks to modern technologies, even small garden pools do not have to be a source of intrusive odours and unpleasant insects nowadays. A water body lends your garden another dimension and an atmosphere. Garden pools can calm down as well as introduce dynamism and motion just as you imagined it. If you have the space and feel like it, why not enjoy unconventional bathing in your own bathing pool. Using cutting-edge technology and materials, we can make a romantic pool or a “beach” in your backyard.
Ecological bathing pools and decorative garden pools
It is a well-known fact that water – whether in motion or as a still surface – gives a space another dimension.
That is why increasingly more garden owners get their little stream, waterfall or garden pool. If you decide on a garden pool, the water surface expanse is the first parameter. This is connected with the choice of not only the pool construction method but also the cleaning method. The smallest garden pools marketed as prefabricated products have fixed dimensions and shapes and have planting zones and pockets for subsequent plantings. Cleaning may use external “swimming pool” type filtering, UV lamps, or a combination of the two.
Larger garden pools, or even small ones, of atypical shapes can be built using two types of liners.
- The first option is PE sheet. Its advantage is lower cost and easier joint cementing. The disadvantages are lower expansivity chiefly at lower temperatures, the impossibility to cement and fix at low temperatures, and generally a shorter lifespan and lower UV resistance.
- Another option is EPDM rubber sheet. At a somewhat higher cost, you get high-quality, resistant material with excellent elasticity and expansivity even at low temperatures. Jointing and fixing is done using fusion welding, so the work is not affected by the ambient temperature. The material has a service life of 70 years; common warranties are around 10 years except for mechanical piercing.
The ecological cleaning method can be considered for garden pools above 35 or 40 m2. With this size, we can make a sufficient plant-based cleaning zone as well as adequate filtering layers at the bottom or beside the pool. The systems may differ by the proportion of plants and mechanical filtering depending on which of the licensed systems your contractor uses. However, the result should always be crystal-clear water without any chemicals.
