A natural swimming pool can support a variety of organisms, such as plants, insects, microorganisms, and small animals. Some common aquatic plants that are often found in a natural swimming pool include aquatic grasses, Norfolk reeds , water lilies, and water irises. These plants provide habitats for aquatic insects like diving bell spiders ,dragonflies, water beetles, pond skaters and damselflies, which in turn are food sources for other organisms.
Microorganisms, such as bacteria and algae, are also important for maintaining a healthy natural swimming pool. They help in breaking down organic matter and nutrients, which are essential for plant growth. Although we have to keep the algae under close supervision.
Small animals like frogs, toads, and newts are often present in natural swimming pools. However, the type and number of animals that are supported by your natural swimming pool may vary depending on the size, location, and other environmental factors. Regular observation and maintaining good water quality will help you to determine what organisms are living in your swimming pool.
