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.

Where should I put my pool

When thinking about installing your pool, thinking about where it goes may come naturally. This might be, “Oh, okay, that’s the spot I’m definitely going to have my pool installed.” Other properties might have tremendous flexibility, and there can be a little bit of consternation over exactly where that pool is going to go. Pool…

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.

What is the difference between a Comply and Development and DA approval

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.

What is the difference between concrete and fibreglass pools

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.

What typically happens on a site visit?

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.
