What is a Biological Pond

Biological ponds; It refers to ecological ponds created without the use of any chemicals, especially chlorine. The cleanliness of the water is achieved by reducing the algae concentration through bacteria in the environment and balancing the phosphorus in the water.

Water, the source of life, has always been the most important natural substance that people live around, meet their physical needs, and use extensively in agriculture and cleaning. In addition to meeting the needs of living things, bringing natural lakes that create peaceful and harmonious views to people's living spaces has become possible with developing technology. In today's world where stress, noise and diseases increase along with technology, ponds or pools that create peaceful and harmonious natural views and provide opportunities for sports and relaxation are no longer a luxury.

People who have managed to bring the peace and calming effect of water to their living spaces, gardens, parks and all kinds of recreation areas have moved away from nature when they use chemicals to maintain the cleanliness of water. Considering the negative effects of chemicals on human health, water, soil and all other living things in conventional pond applications, the undeniable importance of natural and biological practices becomes clear.

Thanks to the solutions pioneered by Bioart, it is possible to create self-cleaning biological pond systems with completely natural methods, without the use of chemicals. In this way, we continue our work on the design, project, construction and operation of ponds that are compatible with the environment as a landscape element and create a visual feast with their plants, pier, stones, fountains that provide water games and even fish.


How a Biological Pond Cleans Itself

In a biological pond that operates according to the principles of nature, water is purified without the use of any chemicals. Biological pond systems can be created with two alternatives, using natural materials, with or without plants.

In solutions where aquatic plants are used, plants take nitrate, phosphate and other elements necessary for their development from water and convert them into minerals. The cycle of absorption of minerals by beneficial microorganisms in the water into a form that plants can absorb is constantly repeated, thus keeping the water clean and clear.

The system, which does not include aquatic plants, works on the principle of biological filtration. Water purified by beneficial bacteria living in the Biofilm layer created by filters using completely natural materials in regeneration areas is as clear and clean as in the system containing plants.

Biological ponds consist of two areas where water is circulated within each other or in separate sections. In addition to the main section, the regeneration section devoted to purifying plants can be collected in a single area or positioned in different places.

In single-pond systems, plants are located in the main section, but the two zones are separated by a partition along the depth of the pond. The filter zone pumps water to the other section, which is then returned with its natural flow.

In biological systems that include plants, part or all of the filtering section is devoted to plants. Aquatic plants remove dirt, phosphate and nitrate from the water by taking the nutrients necessary for their development from the water. Water is constantly circulated from one section to the other in a closed circuit through pump systems placed near the pond systems. The water purified in the filter area is brought back to the main section using different methods. In order to improve the filtering process, an optimum biological balance is established in the pond and the clarity of the water is maximized, thanks to biological purification systems, before the water is given to the filter area.

If requested, the ponds can be enlivened with various fountains. Just like in nature, permanent movement is created in water with applications such as tiny waterfalls, thin layers, turnstiles and wall welds.


Advantages of Biological Ponds

Thanks to aquatic plants and beneficial microorganisms, water is purified without using any chemicals.

Completely natural ecosystems can be created by eliminating the harmful effects of chlorine used in classical systems on the entire ecosystem, especially humans and soil, and the disadvantage of its odor.

Since water is purified with a biological treatment system and no budget is allocated for chemical products, operating costs are much more economical than systems using chlorine/chemicals.

Since pool / pond water does not contain chlorine or chemicals, it becomes possible to use natural materials in landscaping. Thus, natural stones, wooden materials and plants can be used in biological pool systems.

There is no need to use concrete in biological pond construction. Depending on the landform, concrete walls may be placed on cascades and edges.

The pond system can be supported with applications such as waterfalls and fountains, appealing not only to the eyes but also to the ears.

Completely natural and unique pool/pond designs with different personalized designs can be developed and implemented.

Biological pond systems can be built in any size.

Since it is harmless to the environment, it provides an advantage in the promotional activities of hotels, housing estates and local governments.

It contributes to the protection of the environment by not using chemical substances that can harm nature.
