Rating
The huge interest in natural swimming pools, which the author introduced to the UK in 2000, has convinced many owners of a conventional swimming pool to aspire to a natural one. This book was written in response to demand from people all over the world for more information on the subject. It shows how easily conversion can be undertaken, and includes many inspiring examples of completed projects. The book describes the numerous benefits of conversion before moving on to an explanation of the natural swimming pool system. The process of planning and designing a pool conversion is shown graphically, making it very easy to understand, and this is followed by an explanation of the actual work of conversion. Projects that have been planned and designed by the author and by specialist natural swimming pool contractors demonstrate how inspiring converted pools can be, and the book is extensively and beautifully illustrated. This book needs to be read in conjunction with Michael Littlewoods "Natural Swimming Pools: Inspiration for Harmony with Nature & Natural Swimming Pools -- A Guide for Building", to which it is a supplement.
