Ecological pool

The vacant lot on the left side of the factory building used to be a lawn. After an EPA officer visited the lot and suggested it to be a wetland, it is now converted to an eco-pool. With Alocasia, water lotus and other native species of Taiwan, the eco-pool has become a self-contained ecosystem, within which dragonflies and butterflies slide, and frogs and fish swim freely. The eco-pool’s water is the rainwater collecting from the rooftop, buffering through a water piggy bank, slowly flows into the eco-pool. The principle of connecting pipe is applied, so when eco-pool’s water is filled, the water will flow to another water tank which has the same volume as the eco-pool.
