What’s the difference between compliant development and a development application? Well, from our point of view in terms of getting your pool approved, not a great deal. It still takes about the same amount of time in order from ordering your Compass swimming pool to us manufacturing it, having all the plans approved and so forth and then turning up at your backyard and installing your pool.
Difference between a concrete pool and a fibreglass pool and this is a great question. So when we look at concrete pools, concrete pools have one really good advantage over fibreglass pools and that is that you can shape them any way you want to shape them. So if the exact shape of your pool is a really important consideration, might be that you need to wrap it around an Alfresco area or you want a set of steps in that particular corner. Then concrete is a great way to go, but on the flip side, a fibreglass pool has some tremendous advantages over concrete.
Once we’ve made an appointment with you, we’re going to come out and we’re going to ask you a whole bunch of questions. All that in relation to what you think is really important to your life in owning a pool. This might be your first time, it might be your fourth pool. But what we want to do? We want to get a good understanding of what’s important to you.
So how do I go about getting a DA for my pool? Well, when you work with Compass, most of the time we’re going to be involved in walking through that process with you. What I mean by that is that once we’ve decided on the pool, we’ve worked out exactly where it’s going, and we’ve taken all of the relevant measurements.
We’re often asked how close can I build my pool to a boundary? That’s a really good question and it will differ depending on which council we’re seeking to build that pool under. But it may not just be the distance from the boundary that we have to take into consideration as per council’s requirements.
Heating systems for pools, guys. Well, first and foremost, almost every time we consult with you about your swimming pool, we’re going to be recommending that we put provisions for heating in your swimming pool. That’s going to enable you at any time in the future to easily equip your pool with a heating system.
One really exciting feature about a Compass Pool is that literally we can build them in all types of sites and what I mean by that, we can build a Compass Pool right out of the ground if we need to. In fact, we can even go, and we have, installed them on the rooftop of tops of apartment complexes.
Now that all comes about because Compass builds a pool shell that is totally unique.
We sometimes hear that Compass Pools are expensive. Realistically to the uneducated buyer at first glance they can certainly appear that way. But the more you learn about a Compass Pool, the greater information will be transferred about all of the points of difference.
When we talk about filtration equipment, and the size that equipment takes up, we’re really looking for a couple of things. Where is it going to be best located in the backyard, you know, in a place that really suits the overall pool design, and what we’re wanting to achieve with the pool? Where is it going to be placed to make sure everything runs optimally, and in a term that really makes sure that your compass pool is everything we’ve designed it to be?
When we’re building a swimming pool, as you can imagine, access is really important. Most people, when I meet them for the first time, if they think their access is a little challenging, I’m most worried about the crane lift. How are we going to get the pool into the property? Surprisingly enough, that’s generally not the big issue.
