Hi Nogard,
As I understand it, fish are a no-no in eco pools, as they eat the daphnia that form a vital part of the water purification process, but I guess that if you have a spring-fed pond (lucky you!), you will be getting a turnover of clean water anyway. I guess it would depend on the flow rate through the pond. Do you have any algae problems at the moment? Need to keep the nutrient levels low, so the plants out-compete the algae. Hopefully someone else out there will have a spring-fed pond that they are using for swimming......
Cheers
Graham

Thanks Graham.
No algae problems at this time. Time for some research, me thinks!

Hi,

Would be great to hear how you got on with your organic pool. I am seriously looking at the David Pagan Butler plunge pool for my little house in Cernache do Bonjardim ? Thanks for any info

Hi, yes, the pool is all finished and working well.We are very pleased with the result and using it regularly, though the recent cold nights have hit the water temperature a little - only 24c today. I see that you are in Cernache, just down the road from us really, so if you want to come and take a look and have a chat, pm me and I will send you some contact details.
Regards
Graham
