Eddy of Living Earth Systems returns, this time joined by his partner Sam, to continue discussing the ways we can work naturally with living systems to create clean water. The first time he joined us was to share his natural aquaponics system, but this time around talks about how we can use those same ideas to create natural swimming pools.
Pulling from nearly 30 years of experience building natural swimming pools Eddy shares how he blends biology, including plants and fish, along with some technology, such as pool pumps and UV lights, to create a complete setup that removes the need for chemicals like chlorine or minerals like salt. By making these changes, we can create fertility from the pool to use safely in our lawn and garden, and even create water that is clean enough to drink. The best part? You can apply these ideas to systems from as small as a jacuzzi, and several hundred gallons, on up to a pond covering acres containing millions.
