Recreation / Swim Ponds

The most fun and natural approach to swimming in the backyard!


Although its one of the latest trends in backyard swim spaces, recreation ponds have been around for 30+ years. We have installed multiple swim ponds in the lower mainland, and it is one of the most popular inquiries we get. Recreation ponds are biologically filtered using a up flow wetland filter, aeration jets, intake bay and beneficial bacterial treatments. This combination gives us exceptionally clear and health water.

    Benefits of a recreation pond vs a traditional pool:
  • Swimming in healthy clear water with no harsh chemicals
  • Year-round enjoyment! Why stare at a concrete rectangle for 6+ months of the year when you can enjoy the sights and sounds of a swim pond even when its not swim season?
  • Perfect for kids! Play in the waterfalls, snorkel with koi fish explore outdoors!
  • Aquatic life such as fish, plants, birds etc.
  • Lighting for evening swims or simply great views from in the home
