The REFLECTING Pool.
The 2012 Innovation from Biotop: Water Treatment for Flat Architectural Basins.
In recent years the achievements of the R&D department at Biotop have not only been limited to the Living Pool. They were also expanded to include a concept for flat basins that are often used to reflect unique buildings.
This allows architectural flat basins to be treated by means of a biological instead of a chemical process.
With this concept the emphasis was not only on economically-viable construction costs but on cost-efficience and easy maintenance.
The technical components deployed have already proved themselves in the Living Pool, enabling the owners and architects to achieve both water clarity and a shallow basin. All the equipment is housed underground and is not visible above ground.
How the REFLECTING Pool Works.
- The reflecting pool is a 50 to 70 centimeter deep basin with an overflow or skimmer.
- The water flows over the overflow into an underground shaft, where it is mechanically and biologically cleaned.
- Then the water passes through the PhosTec Ultra Filter where the phosphorous is removed, inhibiting the growth of algae. The phosphorous-free water flows back into the reflecting pool.
- In the flat basin a robot automatically cleans the floor of the basin.
- In summertime overheating of the water is prevented by a newly developed cooling system that does not require additional energy. It is dimensioned for each specific project according to geographic location and size of the basin.
