Any One Doing Natural Pools?

I've been reading on them, and watching videos for awhile now and there really isn't that much info about them. I'm thinking about doing one for myself, see how it goes, then maybe offer it on top of the other work I do. If you have done them and had some tips that would be great!

Re: Any One Doing Natural Pools?

To add a little more my main thing I can't decide on is filtration. I've been watching and reading stuff and he runs pipes into the bottom of the planted area underneath gravel with airstones in it to draw water through the plants and gravel then pushes back into the swimming area. My problem with this is how do you know based on your air compressor and size of pipe how much water are you turning every hour. Or do you just go with a skimmer, pump, and something like an up flow filter to push the water through before it returns to the pool. If you go with the second option where do you find stuff like that or do you build it all yourself? I'd like to try to stay away from a big sand filter and pump like you find on a regular pool.
