Natural & Eco Pools
Remember the catch phrase “put your pool on the pill.” - Barry Ronge responded;
In ‘96 we purchased a house with our first ever pool. I saw myself as the pool’s cash-cow spending buckets on maintenance and the usual stuff. Pump, chlorinator, the sand, umpteen chemicals, even a filter housing and plus Eskom’s share to run it - it never stopped. When water restrictions came in - without thinking I backwashed it onto the garden - what a disaster! The chlorine destroyed it and Mrs E was not a happy bunny.
I remembered my Dad’s farm reservoir/pool - that fresh clean water I often swam in as a kid and decided to change things by altering the filter system and later cut out all toxic chemicals - yup, it works a treat! It's been 10 years now and it's a real pleasure seeing our endangered Leopard Toads enjoying it too. We also get many more birds visiting since that terrible chlorine smell has gone!
Our first pool - after rehab!
Take your pool off those pills
and make it work for you!
“A pool is like a relative with a serious drug addiction that you are obliged to maintain!”
Our demand for instant gratification comes at a price which invariably leads to us poisoning ourselves and the planet.
Check your pool in with us to stop its nasty habits. We re-habilitate pools to free them and you - from the ravages of rising Eskom,
water and toxic chemical costs. It's how nature intended them to be - a refreshingly cool body of water to soothe the soul.
That’s how we did our eco-pool - a "reservoir” to catch rainwater, swim, water the garden and even use in the house.
Hey folks it’s a no brainer - the way to go - using a lot less Eskom, water and toxic chemicals. It’s easy on the pocket
and even less to maintain with an occasional check on the pH and a vacuum brush when it’s needed.
That’s saving naturally!
A contracted natural pool
Our answer is simple;
Clean it with nature - not your wallet.
Generally, pools use about 10-15 units/day; even more than geysers. Together with the chemicals it costs you in the region of
R850 - R950 and often higher every month.
At SAVE we offer our proven solutions to your pool headaches.
It could be a natural water feature at a fraction of your monthly
cost with water so fresh you can actually drink it - straight up.
Just looking at it is awesome but swimming in it is the absolute
best - with a much healthier lifestyle.
For just a few units/day (about R200/month)
we put nature to work for you with huge savings
in electricity, chemicals and a whole lot more!
That's living in nature!
How does that work?
We create a filter section adjacent to (if space allows) or in the pool with a barrier wall, filled with our filtering aggregates and/or plants.
The microbes and nutrients in the water actually fertilise the
eco-system in a happy symbiotic relationship.
Pool water passes via the filtering system to remove all large particulates and through a steriliser to kill off harmful bacteria.
The end result is clean, sterilised water which circulates back
into the pool - or may be used to water your garden.
How it compares
Regular Pool Filter System
Requires costly chemicals
Salt systems generate toxic Chlorine
Chlorine is inhaled, swallowed & absorbed via the skin
Most pumps use ± 1 unit's per hour
Filter sand is changed regularly & dumped
Backwash wastes, pollutes & kills everything!
Our Energy Saving Filter System
Cost efficient and chemical free
Eco-system mimics nature
Water is fresh & drinkable
Uses ± 0.3 unit per hour
Filter is regenerated & rinsed
Rinse water can irrigate your garden
