WA-based PASES Aqua biologist Dulana Herath said people were increasingly choosing natural swimming pools over conventional pools, embracing a more eco-friendly option that was cheaper to maintain and run.

“Natural swimming pools are not just about swimming, they are about creating a sustainable and harmonious ecosystem in your backyard,”

An increasing number of people are choosing natural pools over traditional backyard pools.

“They offer a unique blend of organisms, functionality and natural beauty, making them an attractive choice for environmentally conscious Australians.”

Herath said the absence of chlorine and salt in the water prevents skin and eye irritation, while the presence of native plants and wildlife enhances biodiversity.

“Moreover, these pools are cost-effective in the long run due to lower maintenance and electricity expenses,”.
