Hybrid Pool

Hybrid Pool

When space is at a premium a hybrid pool is a beautiful solution.

A hybrid pool combines the filtration technology of a living pool with the beauty of water plants. You can enjoy the ambience and ecological benefits of a natural pool but with more space for swimming and less space for the regeneration zones.

A hybrid pool starts from as small as 20m2 in size and can be any style - contemporary, formal or naturalistic. They can be heated, usually with an air source heat pump so you can use it from May to October.

What maintenance is involved with a hybrid pool?

Only low-level maintenance is needed during the swimming season, and it’s made easy with a pool robot. The skimmer needs checking and emptying daily and takes just a couple of minutes.
