    David Pagan Butler - Building Your Own Natural Swimming Pond


    Natural Swimming Pools or Swimming Ponds work with nature to provide hygienic water for swimming. Plants and animals condition the water so there is no need for chlorine or other pesticides. These pools are good for people and wildlife. David built his first Natural Swimming Pool, not because he liked the challenge, but because it was the only way he could afford to have one.

    Over the past five years, David Pagan Butler has built their my own pools and met experts on Natural Swimming Pools, he has re-thought the processes needed to create hygienic swimming water and has come up with a system completely geared to fellow DIY pond builders. He has tried to minimise resources, incorporating reclaimed materials and he has even made filters from reused household objects and domestic plumbing. In addition, his pools use a fraction of the electrical energy most Natural Swimming Pools require to maintain them. All of this is achieved without compromising healthy water. The water was recently tested and shown to be of drinking water quality. And of course, these pools have been designed to benefit wildlife - they are a nature reserve you can swim in!
