      Turn your pond into a swimming pool

      If you ever get tired of the fish, you can turn your pond into a no-chlorine swimming pool. I think if I were to build a swimming pool, this is the way I would go. It would blend in perfectly with my fish pond.

      There are fish ponds like that, in fact, *exactly* like that. The "regeneration" area is called a veggie filter in a fish pond.

      I know. I thought it was pretty interesting that they make it sound so revolutionary when pond fish people have been doing it for a long time.
