A public pool in Minneapolis, here an older thread http://www.troublefreepool.com/post456401.html#p456401
Master plan http://www.minneapolisparks.org/docu...aster_plan.pdf
Well I decided to build one in central FL, I begin construction in few weeks.
The recharge area will be a pond adjacent to the pool with water moving between the pool & pond 24/7.
A 25' 4" diameter slotted drain hose (with mesh sock) will be coiled 10" below the pebble bottom of the pond and water will be drawn from that at a prescribed rate discharging thru a water fall or river type return to the pool.
The pool is 10x20 and the pond 8x11, it will be 18" deep with plants no fish what so ever.
The system will have a UV sized to eliminate the bacteria & protozoa ( still working on that unit)
Let me know if you have interest in this build,
I don't wish to debate the merits of a "natural" system vs. a properly sanitized pool.
I obviously believe it can work as does Minneapolis parks.
So I wanted to show & discuss the build, it is easily added to any existing pool.
