Water is the secret of life on our planet and without it nothing would exist. Our planet has been purifying the surface water since it’s creation and nothing else would be needed if Nature were left alone to do its work. That is exactly what BWW is doing by introducing Living Water System to pool and fountain designs. We utilize our knowledge and manmade technology to assist Nature in this natural process.
Our system relies on the natural treatment of water through plants, minerals, substrates and microorganisms working together to keep the water clean and healthy. The efficiency of the cleaning process is dependent on the structure of the soil populated by microorganisms acting as natural filters. Marsh and water plants play an important role in the cleaning as well as in the constant flow of water through the screening filter.
For swimming pools and water display features, the system is divided into two areas: one is called the bio-regeneration zone or BRZ, and the other the clean zone. The BRZ is strictly for biological and physical purification of the water and is never to be used for swimming, bathing, recreation, or display. Here a recurrent process is happening: organic substances in the form of leaves and pollen fall into the water supplying additional nutrients. At this point the microorganisms come into play transforming the organic and non-organic substances into smaller particles with less energy that are stored in the soil and utilized by the plants.
