The water in your swimming pond will be kept clean and clear by a combination of plants, circulation and filtration systems.

Plants play a vital role in the eco-system of your pond as they help to oxygenate the water and absorb nutrients that would otherwise lead to algae growth. 

A circulation system keeps the water moving, which helps to distribute oxygen and prevents stagnation. It also ensures that any debris is swept into the skimmer for removal.

A filtration system removes any remaining debris, bacteria and algae from the water before it is returned to the pond.
