Swimpond Designed for Hydro-therapy
Designed mainly for use as hydrotherapy pool, this swimpond is forty-one feet long and only 5 feet deep. It has a flat floor and covered with a decking material for easy walking and exercise. Shorter than a pool intended for swimming lengths, there is no deep end for diving or shallow end for paddling and play. An adult of average height could stand and move around comfortably while being completely submerged in the water.
We used a composite wood alternative to build the walls and floor of the swimming area, keeping the use of concrete to the absolute minimum. With no natural source of water, a rain-water harvesting system feeds water from the downpipes to a storage tank for use as needed.
..we do it naturally!
