Thanks to the Living Pool Converter System, a traditional swimming pool is transformed quickly and easily into a biologically operated Living Pool. The existing water circuit consisting of a skimmer, pump and sand filter can remain in use. Only the chlorination is discontinued.
An additional converter chamber is installed containing a biological filter, a small pump and the »PhosTec-Upstream«.
Converter Upstream 75:
All components are integrated into a single chamber. This chamber measuring 2 x 1 x 1 metres is installed beside the pool and connected via a feed pipe and a return pipe. The pump for the bio-circuit requires only very little electric power, and conversion can therefore significantly lower the operating costs of the pool.
Before and after comparison:
The Biotop Partner was commissioned to transform an old chlorine pool into a Living Pool. The garden had to be redesigned and a new terrace and pool house constructed. The pool is equipped with brand-new piping, a new staircase and a new liner. A mineral filter was also installed. The terrace and pool, which provides a spectacular view of the surroundings, were framed with 1-by-1-metre white concrete slabs to give the facility a modern look.
After many years of operation, this first-generation Living Pool was ready to be renovated. The aim of the project was to install up-to-date technology, a new liner and new equipment and accessories. The new equipment area was constructed of masonry to allow flexible adaptations to the machinery in future, and an under-deck housing for a ‘Grado’ pool cover was also installed. The plan is to operate the facility completely independently via a photovoltaic system mounted on the roof of the company building. The refurbishment also included the rebuilding and significant enlargement of the footbridge and deck area.
