regeneration using flora and fauna to keep the water oxygenated
using flora and fauna to keep the water oxygenated and reduce the built up of harmful algae. A wall is
constructed between the regeneration area and the swimming area.
Another type of bio-pool
relies on the natural flow of water. These types of pools are ideal
