What should I consider before buying a pool?
A pool purchase is a big investment, both in terms of the initial installation, and also ongoing maintenance. Before you buy a pool, consider:
- The costs (including maintenance) of the different pool types, such as Concrete v Fibreglass.
- The timeframe that installing a pool will take - if you want a new pool ready for summer you'll need to start preparing a few months in advance.
- The design, size and shape of your new pool
- The best location within your yard for the pool, considering weather, privacy and obstacles.
Is the spot I've chosen going to work?
There are a number of factors that will influence which is the best location for your new pool. Our friendly staff can help advise on the best place, factoring in the weather, obstacles on your block, and other issues that may not be immediately apparent. We've also put together some tips for choosing the best location within your yard.

I don't have much space - can I still have a pool?
Yes! We can offer a pool to suit almost any sized yard, with options such as smaller sized pools and spas for smaller blocks, through to lap pools for longer, narrower sites.
