Our Process

Part of what sets RickStar Pools and Spas apart from the competition is our commitment to guiding you through every step of the process while we construct your new pool, from the initial planning through until you dip your toes in the water.

Our process ensures you have confidence and peace of mind at every step of the way.

The big idea!

ideaThe first step of the process starts with you. Your grand plans. Your vision. Together with an experienced pool builder from RickStar Pools, we will look at your space, talk to you about your ideas, and come up with a plan specific to your backyard. We can recommend the best location for your pool, answer any questions you may have, and discuss the landscaping and paving options to make your dream a reality. During this step we will also begin the process of obtaining any necessary council approvals - removing that headache early in the process.

As soon as the plans are agreed on and signed the real fun begins. RickStar Pools and Spas will begin excavating the area, clearing a space for your new pool, digging the hole for installation, and preparing the site for your new pool.

A standard fibreglass pool installation would take 2-3 days. All work is completed by our professional team - no subcontractors, just the most highly experienced RickStar Pools and Spas staff. For a concrete pool, the installation process can take much longer, as your concrete pool will be built on site, and then tiled or pebbled, plumbed in and tested.

Finishing up and Handover

At this point our experienced staff will also chemically balance your pool, ready for you to use. Your pool is then finished and ready for use! RickStar Pools and Spas will provide detailed information about how to care for your new pool, check and balance your water, and what pool maintenance is required.

Of course, if you need assistance at any point after handover, you can contact our professional staff on (02) 4972 5586.
