Hydroponics in a Swimming Pool

I am in awe of this incredible modern farm built in a converted swimming pool. The McClung family purchased a foreclosed house with an empty and broken down pool in the backyard. Instead of filling it with concrete, they filled it with life.

The Garden Pool is a remarkable and ambitious setup in the Sonoran Desert. They transformed a dysfunctional urban landscape into a lush and massively producing hydroponic and aquaponic garden. A project that started with just $1500 investment in materials now produces more than enough food every day to feed their family of 4. Oh, and did I mention it’s run on solar power? Inspired yet?!?!?

Read more about the Garden Pool at the Arizona Republic website.

Thanks for the article. We appreciate the support. We at the Garden Pool are big fans of General Hydroponics products. We started our experiment using your products. Our early successes in hydroponics using General Hydroponics products convinced us to keep going.

Thanks again,

This is cool. I wonder how this pool are being clean? I think this will need an intense cleaning because of pots and soil on it.
