or hydrophilic are a type of water plants that are ideal for those
who want to make their swimming pond not just practical, but also

mind that there are some species that are only for decorating and
landscaping purposes, you also need others that are ideal for keeping
the balance of your pond ecosystem. Don't worry about those plants
that live fully underneath water, because they can get the nutrition
they need directly and solely from the water, no matter if they have
short or longer roots.some of these plants are floating and have very
short roots that won't disturb other things.. For your swimming pond
we recommend white lotus, victoria-regia, lotus, water reed, leather
hat, water lettuce or murray tick.

carbonate level of the water should always be measured with specific
tools. The amount of nitrogen compounds is also an important factor
to keep an eye on.This can be controlled with proper filtering or if

feces. Doing so avoids the need for total exchange of pond water. You
can also place a biofilter and install some pumps. If you are unsure,
our advice is to consult with a spa and pool professional. They will
be able to guide you about what should be the ideal size or what
equipment you would need and other details to have a beautiful
addition in your garden without major problems. Something we have to
