Also called natural swimming pools or bio pools, swim ponds are (as the name implies) ponds that are designed for swimming. They utilize wetland filtration to keep water crystal clear and control algae.
We use the name swim ponds because it more accurately reflects the product. While a swim pond has higher water quality standards than typical ponds, and they have much in common with traditional swimming pools, a swim pond is still technically a pond. As such, they attract wildlife, support fish, and grow plants.
If swimming in a pristine natural river sounds more appealing than a day at the country club pool, a swim pond might be what your looking for.
