Introduction to Natural Pools - a film by David Pagan Butler

Quite possibly my next project to contemplate. My only worry with these is wildlife using it as their toilet. Obviously you don't introduce fish but things like racoons and opossums have some pretty nasty bacteria in their fecal matter. Even if I never swim in it though, it sounds like a fun thing to design.


  1. Gotta believe the plants are doing their thing. People are using the same plant systems to clean greywater directly.

    For wildlife, the downside is if they can't get out because of the straight walls, so making it escapeable. Slopingf on one side maybe.

    1. My friend has one of those inflatable pools and she just had to remove a dead squirrel from the thing.
