What happens in the winter?

One advantage of a swimming pond over a conventional pool is that a pond looks beautiful all year round. The water is not emptied and in fact the more mature and established the water is in a swimming pond, the more stable it becomes.

Our filter systems have a "summer" and a "winter" switch - over winter the pump is off nearly all the time as the pond lies largely dormant, ready for the increase in temperatures in the spring.
