This Old Pool Has Developed Its Own Mini-Ecosystem

After 8 years of neglect, this old pool gets a much needed facelift.

This old pool has seen better days. But, after 8 years since it was last used, it is well overdue for some basic maintenance. 

Thankfully, the contractor hired by the pool's new owners took the initiative to get some rare footage of what happens when you leave a swimming pool to the mercies of nature. After almost a decade of neglect, the pool has actually developed its own mini-ecosystem. 

It is always fascinating to see what nature can do with manmade structures even after a few short years of being left to its own devices. 

The underwater footage really needs to be seen to be believed. 

Equally interesting is the amount of work it took to clean up and restore the pool. However, all the hard work was able to bring the pool back to its former glory. 

In fact, so complete is the job that it is hard to believe what the pool looked like before the start of the restoration. Watch the video to find out.
