while there has been less going on in pools in the last two years than in previous years due to the Covid situation, a lot has happened in the area of planning and development. Judging by the number of new pool designs, the industry is slowly transitioning out of the niche and into a larger market. Accordingly, it is important to continue optimizing the facilities and adapting them to the demands of the times. In the future, the CO2 balance of a pool will play an increasingly important role (climateneutral swimming? – p. 1), the digitalization of the facilities will become more important (DANA 2.0 – from data storage to the control centers of the natural swimming pool – p.3), new concepts such as natural indoor pools (indoor pools with biological water treatment, …. yes, it is a possibility! – p.9) and rainwater utilization as fillingwater (“Sponge City” meets natural swimming pond – p.13) will increasingly move into the focus of planning. At the same time, it is still important to better understand the facilities (germ elimination by zooplankton, USOs – Unknown Swimming Objects in Natural swimming Pools – p.6) and to improve them both in terms of design (footbridges in natural swimming pools – p.11) and water treatment (Phosferrum – p.11).
We look forward to presenting some interesting news in this issue and hope you enjoy reading it.
