Memo on water in natural pools

By |Published on: June 4, 2024|

Filling water

The natural bathing area must be filled exclusively with drinking water from the water utility, as this is the only water that is continuously monitored. A preliminary water analysis is essential to check for the presence of nitrates and phosphates.

Risks associated with other waters: The use of spring, well or rainwater poses significant risks to the operation and health of natural bathing area users. These waters can contain pathogenic bacteria, heavy metals and pesticides, leading to malfunctions and health risks.

Calcareous regions are more exposed to the risk of equipment scaling. It is strongly recommended to install a pool water softener adapted to the volume of the pool.


Maintenance and Evaporation

Once filled, natural swimming pools do not require regular water changes, except to compensate for evaporation. The water level must be maintained correctly, especially during periods of high heat or wind.

Water Quality

Water quality is essential for a healthy bathing environment. A minimum of one analysis per year is recommended to ensure water safety and quality. Physico-chemical and bacteriological parameters must be monitored regularly.

Hygiene recommendations

To keep your bathing area clean and healthy, we recommend taking a shower before entering the water, controlling organic and mineral matter inputs, and avoiding the use of chemicals in the vicinity of the bathing area.

Access for the frail

As natural baths do not contain biocides, they may harbor opportunistic germs for a short period of time. People with weakened immune systems or active infections are therefore advised not to bathe.

In conclusion

With proper water management and by following these recommendations, you'll be able to enjoy your natural swimming pool for a long time to come, in complete safety and with a minimum of maintenance.
