Planning your pool

Ready to start building your pool? We've got you covered. During the planning stage, we'll chat about what you need—like how big your pool should be or where it'll go—and make sure everything's sorted, from looks to safety.

Some of the things we’ll look at in the planning stage are:

  • Style
  • Design
  • Fencing location
  • Pool size and depth
  • Gate / door entrances
  • Impact on important aspects of your garden
  • Safety implications for children

Designing your dream pool

Fancy a classic rectangle or something more unique? We help you pick or design a pool that's all you. It's all about creating the perfect spot for summer BBQs or a quick dip after work.

We have an extensive portfolio of designs so whether you are after a lap pool or a big deep end for cannonballs, we can help you create the pool design that best fits you or your family.

The pool construction journey looks like this:

  • Design & permits: Finalise the pool design and obtain necessary building permits from local council.
  • Site preparation: Clear the area where the pool will be built, which may involve grading the land and setting up access for construction equipment.
  • Excavation: Dig the hole for the pool to the specified dimensions.
  • Reinforcement: Install a network of steel rebar to reinforce the concrete.
  • Spraying concrete: Spray concrete for the pool shell.
  • Curing: Allow the concrete to cure properly, which is crucial for structural integrity.
  • Tiling and coping: Install tile and coping at the edges of the pool for aesthetic and practical purposes.
  • Plumbing and electrical: Lay out the plumbing lines for water circulation and electrical conduits for lighting and pool equipment.
  • Decking and landscaping: Construct the pool deck and do any landscaping around the pool area.
  • Equipment set-up: Install the pool pump, heater, filter, and any other equipment.
  • Fencing: Erect a safety fence around the pool area if required by local laws.
  • Final inspection: Have a final inspection by the local authority to ensure compliance with safety and building standards.
  • Interior finish: Apply the interior finish to the pool surface.
  • Filling the pool: Fill the pool with water and balance the chemicals.
