3D model of the water store with imbedded continuous filtering (WSwICF). The WSwICF is basically an ecological swimming pond that also filters the water (so that this may be used for other purposes aswell).
The water is circulated trough a porous stone layer (lava stones), planted with Iris pseudacorus for the main filtering. Besides this, extra plants (placed on the wooden stairs) also add oxygen to the water and also provide additional filtering, and provide shade for the fish. 3 types of fish are also present (not shown in the model).
The exact types of plants used on the 2 wooden stairs are Stratiotes aloides (first stair) and Nuphar lutea (second stair). Hydrocharis morsus-ranae floats freely in the center. Keep in mind though that depending on the location where the WSwICF is placed, other plants/fish will be used (organisms native to the region in question).
Also make sure that the plant pots are filled with a substrate (so that no nutrients get into the water; this will else allow algae, ... to grow in the water).
Also present in the model is the tanning seat, the deep water source cooling radiator system, and the fish hatchery and baffle box. Note that in the WSwICF, no baffle box is required, this is only required when the hatchery and the baffle box is used seperatly (ie directly in rivers, ...).
The deep water source cooling radiator is a simple system to cool rooms in houses in subtropical or tropical climates. See the 'Purchasing_the_models' link at appropedia's AT_CAD_Team for additional information on the model
