Description Originally designed in Europe, a Natural Swimming Pool (NSP) is a constructed body of water in which all purification is achieved by botanical and biological filters, aquatic plants, and beneficial microbes in a carefully constructed wetlands regeneration zone. The water in an NSP is not disinfected or sterilized in any way - it is a biologically active living ecosystem. NSPs are ecologically harmonious, healthful for humans and the environment, and 100% chemical-free.

The construction of an NSP has been described as a personally responsible, sustainable consumer choice. A Natural Swimming Pool is not just a place to swim, it is a prized eco-friendly watershape that promotes biodiversity and enhances the ecology of the surrounding landscape.
