The journey to installing your new pool
Call or email our office to discuss your ideas. Julie will email you an initial quote & arrange a site inspection.
Meet with Jayson on site. He will discuss with you the best choice of pool shape for your space & lifestyle & what other work you may need done to finish the area, such as paving or fencing. Our office will send you a final quote based on the site inspection. For an explanation of terminology in the quote, please click here.
You decide to go ahead & let our office know the good news. We will send you your contract & the certification paperwork. When you send it back we process your Home Warranty Insurance, take a deposit, book you into the installation schedule & lodge the relevant applications.
The big day arrives! Our team will mark out the pool & set the heights, then the excavation begins…..we dig a big hole, place the pool shell, backfill around it, install the plumbing & any accessories, fill the pool with water & level the perimeter. We lay the steel for the bond beam, which is inspected by Council, then pour the concrete. Last but not least we connect all the filtration equipment, clean the pool & book you a handover.
This whole process can take from one to two weeks, depending on the weather. If you have asked us to do any paving, fencing or any other kind of work it will take longer.
Once the pool safety fence is installed & we are sure everything is to your satisfaction we book the final Council inspection. Once that has been processed, you, the proud owner of a new pool, will need to register your pool on www.swimmingpoolregister.nsw.gov.au

Fibreglass Pool FAQ's
How long does it take to install a fibreglass pool from start to finish?
When you confirm your order with us, we schedule you for the next available installation date, which is generally 2-3 months ahead. Installation is fast and once begun, your pool should be ready to swim in within 2 weeks. Our team will always stay in touch with you during this process and notify you if delays occur.
Paving, retaining walls or other external features may take longer for a complete pool area.
How is a fibreglass pool installed?
After confirming your order, including pool selection, installation happens as follows:
- Preparation of the site including final measurements
- Excavation of the pool area
- Setting the base and confirming it is level
- Lowering the pool into place, known as craning and setting
- Backfilling dirt and filling the pool (conducted simultaneously to equalise pressure)
- Plumbing the pool, including therapy jets and filter or drainage
- Exterior paving and landscaping
Our professional team are fully qualified and insured to help you every step of the way.
Do I need to prepare anything?
Our team will advise you if any preparation is necessary, but we aim to take care of everything from start to finish, including dirt removal and dumping.
During installation, we ask that gates are left unlocked for ease of access and that children and pets are kept at a safe distance and are fully supervised.
