What is a Natural Pool?

What is a Natural Pool?

Pools, depending on their type, are areas we use to have a pleasant time, relax and do sports in four seasons. However, regardless of the type of pool, ensuring hygiene in a pool is one of the most important factors for a pleasant and healthy use. Because pools are artificial water bodies and they are static. We need to keep these areas, which are not connected to another water source and are not cleaned by current, clean and hygienic by using various methods regularly. Different pool types use different methods for this process. Generally, in many pools, a hygienic environment is created with the help of filtration systems and pool chemicals. On the other hand, in natural pools, cleaning processes are carried out without using these chemicals. A natural pool is a type of pool that is cleaned with the help of the natural ecosystem created in the pool instead of pool chemicals and can be used for swimming and aesthetic purposes.

In addition to the natural ecosystem used for cleaning, a more natural design is preferred in natural pools instead of an artificial appearance. To achieve this, natural pools are home to various plants and sometimes animals, as well as bacteria and organisms that will provide cleaning in the pool. In addition, the exterior design of the natural pool is also completed to provide a natural appearance. In this way, as the hygiene in the pool is provided in a natural way, harmful chemicals are avoided and a relaxing environment is created with a more natural appearance. In addition to their benefits such as hygiene and a pleasant appearance for users, natural pools are also more beneficial for nature. Because thanks to these pools, nature is enriched and a habitat is created for many organisms. In short, a natural pool creates an area that has its own ecosystem and provides many advantages for users.


A natural pool is a type of pool that is frequently preferred if you have the appropriate space and resources for its construction. We commonly come across natural pools both in parks and private living spaces. Sometimes these pools are used as swimming pools, and sometimes they are used only for aesthetic purposes. There are many reasons why this type of pool, which almost all of us have seen before, is widely preferred. The first and one of the most important of these is the hygiene method used in natural pools. A natural pool has a special ecosystem within itself. With the help of this ecosystem, an effective cleaning and hygiene is provided in natural pools. Although pumps and filtration systems are used in natural pools to ensure water circulation, it is possible to stay away from pool chemicals thanks to this ecosystem. In this way, thanks to the natural pool, we avoid various harmful effects of pool chemicals.

Another important function of the natural pool is that it has a more natural appearance than other pools and creates a very aesthetically pleasing environment. Because in these pools, more natural materials are preferred not only in the cleaning method but also in the design. In this way, with a natural pool, users have a special space to spend a relaxing time. The ecosystem of natural pools contains various bacteria and organisms for cleaning. In addition, natural pools can be home to plants and even animals from time to time. Therefore, these areas become useful areas not only for humans but also for the whole nature. However, in natural pools planned to be used as swimming pools, it is not preferred that the ecosystem of the pool is so diverse. In natural pools used as swimming pools, the side effects of pool chemicals are avoided thanks to the preferred cleaning method.


Natural pools, which are widely preferred in various areas, have many features that make them preferred in this way. Thanks to these features, they offer a healthier swimming opportunity as well as providing users with a more relaxing area. We can talk about some of the features of natural pools as follows:

  • First of all, one of the most striking features of natural pools is the cleaning method used. In these pools, pool-cleaning bacteria and organisms are used against bacteria and other organisms that have a polluting effect on the pool. Thus, it is not necessary to use pool chemicals in the cleaning of natural pools.
  • In natural pools, the design is done in a natural way like the cleaning method. The internal structure of the pool is shaped to create a more natural appearance. In addition, landscaping is also carried out with the help of natural materials. Natural pools, which create a pleasant and relaxing area due to their design, are preferred in hotel gardens, parks and sometimes even in workplaces, as well as private living spaces such as sites.
  • Natural pools, which are preferred for their aesthetic features in many different areas, can also be used for swimming. The ecosystem of natural pools built for swimming activity is also created in a way that makes this possible.
  • In natural pools where bacteria and organisms are used for cleaning at the chemical level, a filtration system is used for the cleaning of larger pollutants and circulation of pool water.
  • For natural pool construction, the construction area must also be suitable for this type of pool construction. First of all, it is necessary to have enough space for pool construction. In addition, it is ideal that the area for natural pool construction has a natural appearance in general.
  • Natural pools offer users many useful features. In addition, these pools are also very beneficial for nature. First of all, these pools, which host various living things in their ecosystem, also provide fresh air to the environment thanks to the plants they host.


Apart from the many unique attributes the natural pool provides, users of the pool may also enjoy both aesthetic and bodily benefits. Besides the various advantages it brings to the community, this natural pool also plays a very important role for ecology.

Some of the benefits of a natural pool are as follows: Some of the benefits of a natural pool are as follows:

Over and above having no chemical swimming pool input of chemicals there are no chemical materials the natural pool is free from chemicals. Furthermore, things like eyes and skin are not burnt and red due to the absence of burning when people swim. As compared to the other types of pools, natural pools let the swimmers have a more enjoyable and sounder swim.

A pool chemical could also be the source of the other worst side effects including minor reactions. One instance in our community is has pool chemicals are causing allergies, breathing problems, and stomach upset. This reason is crucial and design marine pools do not consider it.

Moreover, the natural pool is also a better option for human health besides other factors like spending time in nature which is a true source of joy and relieves stress. Moreover, in complicated situations such as the raised floor, the electrical cables turn out to pose many risks to people. Craft foam, pipe cleaners, and cotton padding are also needed. However, these designs can be increased to make the product unique.

The design of these pools is part of their nature by which they make the users relax. Natural pools allow people to regain quietness, one can say.

Natural swimming pools provide not only healthy alternatives and offer many creative design possibilities but also lower the cost of heating, filtration, and chemical treatments, as well as reduce water and energy bills. Furthermore, to this extent, the natural pool provides a community of multi-bacteria, plants, and animals.

Apart from just following the course of nature and of various different animal species, the natural pools also carry with them other features that help maintain even more life around. It is with the help of these pools, that the natural areas in the environment increase, and thus because of the plants in these pools, they provide oxygen to the environment.


Natural pools offer users a healthier and easier cleaning. In addition to these features, natural pools, which also provide an aesthetic appearance, are used in many different areas. In other words, natural pools have a wide range of uses. For example, one of the areas where we come across these pools most frequently is parks. Natural pools are used from time to time in these areas where many people visit to relax and get fresh air. Natural pools help to create a more aesthetic and relaxing environment in these areas. In addition, another common use of natural pools is site gardens. In these environments, the natural pool offers an area where residents can rest and relax.

We often come across natural pools in workplace gardens and hotels. Finally, another area of use for natural pools is the gardens of private residences. Natural pools add an elegant and very natural look to all these areas. Users use these areas to have a pleasant time. Natural pools sometimes offer a very good picnic area. In addition, they can also be used as swimming pools, depending on the ecosystem preferred to be used in the natural pool. There are not many differences in the use of these pools compared to other pools. The main feature that distinguishes these pools from other pools is the method of hygiene in the pool.


Although it has many similarities with other pools in terms of use, the natural pool is a very different and unique pool type compared to other pool types. These differences make the natural pool interesting for some users. 

We can list the differences of the natural pool from other pools as follows:

  • First of all, there are some differences between natural pools and the most common standard swimming pools. For example, the design of the pool and the methods used in cleaning at the chemical level are among the most striking differences. In natural pools, a more natural design is preferred and special bacteria and organisms are used for hygiene.
  • Another popular type of pool is the Olympic pool. An Olympic pool is a type of pool used for various sports competitions. In this type of pool, dimensions following official standards are used. In addition, Olympic pools are also designed in a way that allows them to be used effectively in sports competitions. The most striking difference between Olympic pools, which are similar to standard swimming pools in some other aspects, compared to natural pools is these design features we mentioned.
  • The wave pool, which is frequently encountered in entertainment centers, also has differences compared to the natural pool. First of all, various devices are used to create waves in these pools. In addition, there are differences between the wave pool and the natural pool in terms of design, hygiene method, and usage areas.
  • Another type of pool that has differences from the natural pool is the shock pool. The shock pool, which is used to "shock" the body in places such as saunas and Turkish baths, attracts attention with its low water temperature. While shock pools are usually located indoors, natural pools are built outdoors.
  • Another type of pool that allows effective use of natural areas is the thermal pool. However, a thermal pool has a high water temperature and is built in thermal areas. The temperature of natural pools, on the other hand, is usually average and the construction areas are more diverse.
  • When it comes to a pleasant appearance, another type of pool that comes to mind other than natural pools is the infinity pool. The infinity pool needs to be built in a high area and usually, a different design is used in these pools than the design of natural pools.
  • Finally, another type of pool is the therapy pool. The therapy pool has limited dimensions due to its area of use. In addition, the therapy pool is used for the treatment and rehabilitation of various health problems, while the natural pool is used for relaxation, rest, and sports.


The construction of natural pools, which offer many advantages to users, is an issue that has some conveniences in some ways and various difficulties in some ways. First of all, it is necessary to have a suitable area for natural pool construction. Ideally, the area where the natural pool is built should support this natural appearance of the pool. Therefore, the first step in natural pool construction is to examine the construction area and determine its suitability based on various standards. One of the most important factors is that the ground is suitable for this type of pool construction. In addition, there should be enough space in the area for the planned natural pool project. After the construction area is determined and the design is completed, the necessary materials are collected and brought to the construction site.

Then, the next stage in natural pool construction is to dig the foundation. According to the design of the pool, excavation is made in the construction area and parts such as water and electrical equipment are placed. At this stage, lighting systems are also installed if they are to be used. Parts such as filtration systems and pumps are also installed in the pool and the bottom of the pool is covered with insulation materials. After the construction of the interior of the pool is completed, the design and arrangement of the pool surround is started. During this process, natural materials such as wood and special stones as well as various plants are used. At the end of all these processes, the pool is filled with water and the bacteria and organisms necessary for hygiene are mixed into the system. It may take a certain amount of time for these organisms to become functional. After the bacteria and organisms used for cleaning in natural pools become functional, the pool is ready for use.


The construction of a natural pool requires careful work in terms of both design and functionality. Therefore, natural pool construction should be carried out by professionals and there are many factors to be considered in natural pool construction. We can list some of the factors to be considered in natural pool construction as follows:

  • First of all, the area determined for natural pool construction should be chosen correctly. The ground of the area should be suitable for natural pool construction and a region suitable for the design of the natural pool should be preferred.
  • Another important factor about the construction site of the natural pool is that there is enough space for the preferred design. It is also wise to choose an area away from pollutants if possible.
  • After the design is made according to the structure of the region and the wishes of the user, the pool foundation should be created and all the systems required for the pool should be carefully installed.
  • The bacteria and organisms used to maintain cleanliness in natural pools should be selected according to the intended use of the pool and used in the required amount. If the pool is planned to be used as a swimming pool, the ecosystem should be determined accordingly.
  • Finally, it should be ensured that all materials used in natural pool construction are high-quality products.


Mastery is as important as the materials used in natural pool construction. Various materials are used for this process. First of all, filtration systems are used to clean large-sized pollutants in the natural pool. In addition, the water in the pool is circulated with a pump. In this way, the pool water always remains mobile and with the help of these systems, the pool is cleaned of large particles of contaminants. In addition, the materials that make up the basic structure of the pool are materials such as lining, brick, concrete, plastic and fiberglass. Optionally, one or more of these materials are used at certain stages of the project, especially the pool foundation.

Some of the other important materials used in natural pool construction are the materials used in plumbing and electrical systems. Materials such as plastic pipes and cables are some of the materials used in these systems. Among all these, the most important material that makes the natural pool a natural pool is the materials used for hygiene, which prevent the formation of bacteria and organisms. As a result, materials similar to other pool types are used in natural pools. In addition to these standard materials, materials such as natural stones are used for design and bacteria and organisms are used for cleaning. A natural swimming pool is built with the use of all these materials.


A natural pool is a type of pool that provides freedom and diversity in its construction as well as many advantages in the long term. It is possible to benefit from various design shapes in natural pools, which are intended to create a more natural appearance. In addition, various natural materials can be used for design. For example, the natural pool edge is an ideal area for the use of natural stone. In addition to the freedom it provides in terms of natural pool design, materials used, and design shape, it also allows us to be creative about the dimensions.

The main factor that primarily affects the dimensions of the natural pool is the characteristics of the construction area of the pool. First of all, the space offered by the construction area should be taken into consideration. In addition, the design that the user has in mind and the number of people who are planning to use the pool are also important factors. If the natural pool is not planned to be used as a swimming pool, you can be more free about the pool dimensions. For example, the depth of the pool can be designed to be shallower or deeper accordingly. In short, as long as the construction area of the pool allows, the dimensions of the natural pool are freely determined depending on factors such as the intended use and the number of users.


One of the materials that significantly affects the visuality as well as functionality in natural pools is the pool flooring. Quality pool tiles should be preferred to keep the pool durable and clean in the long term and to provide an aesthetic appearance to the pool. Among Serapool Porcelain products, there are many options suitable for use in natural pools, which are useful in creating targeted durability and hygiene as well as having an aesthetic appearance.

The following Natural Series pool tiles can be used in natural pool construction:

Porcelain mosaics with natural and pleasant colors can be preferred:

  • Versicolor Mosaic (Red - Orange)
  • Versicolor Mosaic (Mustard - Navy Blue)

In addition to these options, antibacterial in-pool tiles can also be used in natural pools:


In natural pools, various bacteria and organisms are used to maintain cleanliness organically. These bacteria and organisms are special bacteria and organisms for use in natural pools to ensure cleanliness. In addition to these, natural pools can also host other living things in their ecosystems. These creatures both support the natural appearance of the pool and offer various benefits. For example, many different plant species can be used in natural pools.

There are many different options left to the preference of users in this regard. For example, plants such as lotus flower and duckweed can be used inside the pool, while plants such as acacia, azalea, and damask can be used around the pool. When choosing plants that can be used in natural pools and poolside, being inspired by nature will help us achieve better results in terms of aesthetics.


The main feature that distinguishes natural pools from other types of pools is that natural methods are preferred for cleaning at the chemical level. Pool chemicals used in other pools are not used in natural pools. Instead, natural pools utilize bacteria and organisms specially used for this process of cleaning at the chemical level.

However, in natural pools, the methods used in other pools are used to clean contaminants with larger dimensions. In other words, there are also filtration systems in natural pools. The natural pool filter should be selected under the dimensions and design of the pool. The filter should be a quality filter with features that provide cleaning and water circulation in the pool.


The costs required for the construction of a natural pool may vary according to many factors. First of all, one of the important factors affecting the cost is the size of the natural pool. Since more materials and labor are required in natural pools with larger dimensions, the prices increase in the same way. In addition, natural swimming pool prices vary according to the design of the pool. A more original and creative design can cause an increase in the construction costs of the pool.

Another factor in the cost of natural pool construction is the quality of the materials used. The quality of parts such as filtration systems, flooring and insulation systems and all other materials used affect the cost. Quality materials should always be preferred in the construction of a good natural pool that is planned to be used for many years. For the most up-to-date natural pool prices, price information should be obtained from a company specializing in this business.


In the construction and use of natural pools, in addition to the question "How to build a natural swimming pool?", the question "How to clean a natural pool?" is also frequently asked. Compared to other pool types, a very different method is used for chemical-level cleaning in natural pools. Various bacteria and organisms are utilized in natural pools for this process.

However, natural pool cleaning is quite similar to the cleaning of other pools in terms of the procedures to be performed by users. First of all, filtration systems should be maintained regularly. In addition, less frequently, the pool water is completely drained and refilled. Since pool chemicals are not used in natural pool cleaning, processes such as chlorination are not applied. However, after the pool water is refilled, the bacteria used for cleaning should be re-established. In short, although there are differences, pool cleaning in natural pools is similar to other types of pools.


In addition to the bacteria and organisms used for cleaning its ecosystem, a natural pool can also contain some other living things. The most important of these creatures are plants that create an aesthetic appearance and provide fresh air around the pool. In addition, creatures such as frogs can also live in the natural pool. In addition, the natural pool ecosystem can also be made suitable for fish to live. In other words, as long as the pool system is made suitable for this, fish can be fed in the natural pool.
