A natural pool provides an additional, and beautiful outdoor room and living space for people, and provides the incomparable feeling of being at one with nature and swimming in a lake.
Biotop was founded 35 years ago and since then, together with its partners in Europe and abroad, has built more than 7,000 pools, which are operated without the use of any chemicals. A quarter of these pools are Living Pools – bio-pools that look like conventional swimming pools, but otherwise have nothing in common with the traditional chlorinated pool.
The original Biotop Natural Swimming Pool is designed in the traditional pond style, with a naturalistic planting system around it. The traditional natural pool blends seamlessly into its environment and has a strong architectural impact in the garden throughout the year and is especially effective at enhancing the winter garden. Plants and wildlife which are attracted to the margins, bring a new and vibrant dimension into the garden and the pool complements and enhances the landscape.
The Living Pool looks like a conventional pool but is in fact a fully-function natural, biological pool. The Biotop Living Pool has no requirement for plants for filtration and requires absolutely no chlorine or other chemicals. The Living Pool offers the ultimate in swimming enjoyment in pure, crystal clear water.
The Biotop converter system is particularly suited for natural pools which have not yet had any technology installed or those where the water quality is not satisfactory. It also enables the relatively simple conversion of an existing chlorinated swimming pool into a natural, chemical free, biologically operated one.
