Our natural swimming-pool is flanked by a children’s play area and a lily pond. The water is filtered by the roots of hundreds of aquatic plants and circulated with the aid of a pump which in turn is operated by electricity harvested directly
from the sun. The water has a neutral Ph factor and is completely free of chlorine and other chemicals. It is safe for children, even babies, and it does not damage or discolour the skin or hair in the same way as the water in a conventional pool.
