Natural Swimming Pools” or “Swimming Ponds” is a relatively recent concept that originated in Europe, which uses freshwater without any chlorine or other chemical additives traditionally used in swimming pools. A submerged vegetation zone is included to filter the nutrients in the water just like natural lakes and the appearance of the natural pool is absolutely stunning.

To provide optimum water quality and less maintenance, then yes. PASES Aqua uses both plant, mechanical and biological  filtration to achieve the best results. Our filters are a lot more advanced than european and american systems to account for the warmer climate to combat the algae. 

Yes. Natural pools are becoming more increasingly popular worldwide and have proven to be safe when designed, built and maintained correctly. We do have sterilisation systems that prevent 99% of pathogens and harmful bacteria to survive. 

Natural swimming pools are slightly more expensive to build compared to conventional pool due to the extra landscaping required (concreting, block-laying, fibreglassing, vegetation zones, artificial zones). However, we find these costs can quickly be saved back in reduced ongoing maintenance and electricity expenses.
