What we mean by biopool
The term biopool refers to the artificial bathing waters, sealed from the soil and protected at the edges by the surrounding terrain. The incoming and outgoing substances are at equilibrium. Only mechanical and biological treatments are allowed (through plants, animals, biofilms, microorganisms) whereas the use of preservatives or disinfectants is not allowed. The plants are separated and connected to the bathing water.
Categories of biopools
The biopools can be divided into 5 main categories depending on their “nature-oriented” degree:
Still waters – categories 1-3
The stagnant fresh waters found in nature, with their high biodiversity, serve as a model for small lakes belonging to category 1 to 3. The natural food chain composed of plants, animals and micro-organisms is widely represented.
Running waters – categories 4, 5 and 5plus
The models for categories 4 and 5 fit to the natural running waters. The higher categories, thanks to a very refined technique, allow larger size of the swimming area with respect to the regeneration area, and have a greater water clearness.
