“My wife and I purchased a house in the country with an in-ground pool that had been abandoned for more than a decade and had become a home to frogs and turtles. Knowing that we did not want to introduce chemicals into this already natural ecosystem, we contacted James Robyn at BioNova® and he agreed to take on our pool’s transformation into a natural swimming pool. Concrete was repaired and the pool was re-lined with PoolHide®. A separate pond (the regeneration zone) was constructed just beyond the pool, and new plumbing lines were run. Having never owned a pool before, and having no experience with natural pools, there was definitely a bit of a learning curve, but Alan Weene at BioNova® was always easy to reach when we had questions. And now that we are up and running we couldn’t be happier. The regeneration zone is home to frogs and turtles, butterflies and dragonflies. We’ve even had some visits from a great blue heron that lives on a nearby river. All this natural life keeps down the mosquito population very well. And the pool is clear and refreshing. With a little bit of effort it takes care of itself. I don’t worry about kids getting exposure to chlorine, and we can go for a swim and don’t even need to rinse off afterwards. We replaced the original molded concrete coping with irregular flagstone and it looks fabulous. For now we’ve only repaired the old concrete deck, but eventually we will transform that, as well. A few nights ago my daughter and I went out with flashlights to look at the frogs and found two dragonflies molting on closed lily blooms. What a wonderful experience for us. Something a sterile, traditional pool could never provide.”

“My husband and I would really like to thank Rin Robyn Pools® for all of the extra effort you put into everything for our big event yesterday. Usually most of our guests have been here before, but yesterday was different. We didn’t know 90 percent of the people, and everyone was blown away by the pool. We had people walk through the gate and exclaim because they had never seen anything like it. Many thanks to all of you for providing us with such a special place. And yes, everybody enjoyed it. People were slow to get down to swimwear and get into the water, but eventually they did, and stayed until the party ended.”

“A few years ago, I made a foolish decision. I chose a bargain basement natural pool installer. Fast forward three years, and my pool is clogged with algae, requires a vast amount of maintenance, and a whole host of filters just to be swimmable. I finally decided to do what I should have done from the beginning. I called BioNova®. From the very beginning, I was impressed by BioNova®’s professionalism and by their wealth of knowledge. They redesigned our natural swimming pool, correcting for the mistakes the original installer had made. They were responsive and responsible, performed work in a timely manner, and were very easy to deal with. The pool functions far more effectively now, and is far more beautiful. The new filtration system they installed is working far better, when problems come up (mostly having to do with holdovers from the old system) they deal with them. They helped to train a local landscaper to maintain the pool, so we now have on site maintenance and troubleshooting. This is very important, because we live in a fairly remote area. I only wish I had hired BioNova® from the very beginning.”

“Over the past four years we have been fortunate to work with Freddy Miraballes, Owner of Freddy’s Landscape Company located in Fairfield County, CT. We were introduced to Freddy by his brilliant and savvy Landscape Architect, Tara Vincenta, Owner of Artemis Landscape Architects. We had heard about natural pools largely constructed in Europe and in Australia, but not much was happening in the US. We wanted to change that. In a partnership with Freddy, Tara, and BioNova® Natural Pools, we set out to construct a pool like no other! A natural pool can be driven by any landscape aesthetic, so don’t hold back. We had an all-star team, veterans in the business who understood our design and construction goals and our vision for our property.

“Without question, a job by Freddy and his team of experts is driven by discovery, intelligence, and purpose. We have worked with many contractors in the past, and though largely successful, Freddy’s attention to detail, customer service, and timeliness is to be applauded. Freddy’s commitment with BioNova® is unsurpassed. He and his team have spent many hours in Germany and in the US studying the BioNova® systems. Needless to say they are now experts and a great Dealer for BioNova® Natural Pools. It is without any hesitation that we recommend Freddy, Tara, and BioNova®.”
