Using innovative technology that conserves water and lessens environmental impact, Crystal Lagoons® has installed stunning lagoons all across the globe. Including making a splash right here in Texas. With Balmoral’s Crystal Clear Lagoon right outside your front door, you’ll be able to escape to a tropical paradise without venturing far from home.


What is Crystal Lagoons® patented technology?
Crystal Lagoons® is the world’s leader in water innovation and technology, which transforms any corner of the world into an idyllic beach paradise. It is an international company with offices around the world, which has developed and patented a state-of-the-art technology that enables crystal clear bodies of water of unlimited sizes to be built and maintained, offering an idyllic beach lifestyle anywhere in the world while using minimal amounts of chemicals and energy. Crystal Lagoons has over 600 projects in different phases of development, planning, construction and operation.
How does it work?
Crystal Lagoons’ technology applies an efficient filtration system that uses only 2% of the energy consumed by conventional swimming pool centralized filtration systems. Crystal Lagoons’ patented solution is to apply additives and different ultrasonic waves to the water in the lagoon, which enable the contaminant particles to be agglomerated into larger particles that are later removed from the lagoon. This means that only a small portion of the total water volume needs to be filtered. Also, as the filtered flow is up to 300 times lower than for conventional systems, the whole filtration system is smaller, decreasing installation requirements in terms of pumps and filter sizes.
Are there many chemicals in the crystal clear lagoon?
Crystal Lagoons’ patented solution is to apply controlled pulses of very small quantities of oxidants/micro-biocides to the water in the lagoon, according to the growth cycles of algae and bacteria, in very specific patterns based on algorithms. In so doing, it is not necessary to maintain a high and permanent level of disinfection the way a conventional swimming pool does. The results of this efficient system are that it enables up to 100 times less additives (source: Crystal Lagoons US Corp) to be used than are used in conventional swimming pool and drinking water treatment technologies, all of which reduces excessive expense on chemicals and further environmental damage. The application of additives is coordinated by strategically located injectors and sensors. This operation is managed by the Crystal Lagoons Control Center online in real time.
How is the water quality of the crystal clear lagoon controlled?
The hydraulic and mechanical systems are monitored, controlled, and operated remotely by Crystal Lagoons from their Control Center. This enables Crystal Lagoons to ensure that water quality is maintained within their established parameters, guaranteeing high quality regardless of the location of the crystal clear lagoon.
How much water does a crystal clear lagoon use?
The technology in every crystal clear lagoon enables low water consumption, using as little as 30 times less water than a golf course and 50% less water than is required by a city park of the same size.
Is it safe to swim in a crystal clear lagoon?
The water in a crystal clear lagoon fully complies with the most stringent international physicochemical and microbiological water quality standards. The water quality is also monitored 24 hours a day 7 days a week by specially designed systems and sensors that continually report specific physicochemical and other water quality parameters through a proprietary telemetry platform, managed and operated through the cloud by the Crystal Lagoons Control Center (CLCC). All the different mechanical and hydraulic systems operating in the lagoons around the world are also activated and controlled from the CLCC, allowing for a constant monitoring and operation of the lagoons, to ensure excellent water quality all year round.
When will the Balmoral crystal clear lagoon be open?
The Balmoral crystal clear lagoon is open all year round. It will be closed two days a week for maintenance. Please see onsite Balmoral lifestyle director for specific dates and times of operation.
How big is the Balmoral crystal clear lagoon?
The Balmoral crystal clear lagoon is 2 acres. This is approximately 2.2 times the size of a US football field (0.9 acres) or 6 times the size of an Olympic sized swimming pool allowing for a variety of water sports such as stand up paddle boards and kayaks.
Are jet skis allowed in the Balmoral crystal clear lagoon?
Motorized vehicles are not allowed in the Balmoral crystal clear lagoon. Paddle boards and kayaks are allowed and can be launched at the floating dock.
Is there a designated swimming area in the Balmoral crystal clear lagoon?
There are designated swimming areas in the Balmoral crystal clear lagoon. The swimming areas are a maximum three feet deep and are separated from the deeper areas of the crystal clear lagoon which are reserved for kayak and stand up paddle boards.
How deep is the Balmoral crystal clear lagoon?
The Balmoral crystal clear lagoon is eight feet deep at its deepest. The designated swimming areas are three feet deep.
Do fish live in the Balmoral crystal clear lagoon?
Since the water is clean and does not have nutrients to support wildlife, there are no fish or wildlife in the Balmoral crystal clear lagoon.
