Is it Best to Install a Pool Before or After a Build

A great question we’re often asked is, “If I’m going to build a house, how do I go about planning the pool?”
Well, if it’s such that you’ve got a block that when the house is built, you’re going to lose your access, it’s really important to consider putting a pool in first. At Compass, we call that a sleeper pool, so you can certainly come and talk to us about installing a sleeper pool. The other consideration is, if you’re going to have access.

What kind of access do I need for pool installation?

I talk to a lot of people who have anxiety about access to their house. The first thing to let you know is, just about everything is possible. Ideally, we’d turn up at a block, it’d be flat, we’d have no house in that spot and we could drive straight in with all the equipment. Because realistically, when a pool is built, we literally want to turn up with the biggest digging machine, an excavator…

What does a typical pool installation look like with Compass Pools Newcastle

I think that when people build a pool, the first thing you think about is the colour of the pool, the size of the pool, the shape of the pool. But people don’t realize the tile choices for the sun pod, the features around with the glass and the fencing and all of that. I think that your centre showed everything for us and you could plan in everything before you had even broken ground.

How do I go about buying a pool?

So how do you go about buying a pool? Well, that’s such a good question. There are many steps that we would recommend taking when you’re looking to purchase a swimming pool, whether it’s your first or your 31st, if that’s possible.
But what we certainly recommend, is that you come in and visit us at the Compass display centre, Newcastle, which is in Tomago.
