Natural Pool Design Seminar

Bio-Nova will host a one-day seminar on designing natural swimming pools Nov. 16 in San Francisco.

Learn how to design a chemical-free natural pool.

The seminar will run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the San Francisco Airport Marriott Hotel.

Originally designed in Europe, an natural swimming pool is a constructed body of water in which the water is clarified and purified by filtration through planted botanical and biological filters.

The pool is entirely chemical-free; no chemicals or special devices are used, yet the pool remains safe for swimming.

The construction of an natural swimming pool has been described as a personally responsible, sustainable consumer choice.  It actually enhances the natural surrounding ecology and is a biological water system that is itself sustainable.

It remains diverse and productive over time, as circulation cycles redistribute nutrients and other elements through the living system.

The water is safe for swimming, will remain in good condition with minimal work, and is a beautiful, natural delight to view.

Registration: $395/person; $445 after Nov. 1. This seminar is approved for six Credit Hours by the ASLA Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System.
