Discover the perfect DIY Pool for your Backyard

If you want to transform your backyard into a private oasis, a DIY pool might be just what you need. With a wide selection of options across Australia, finding the perfect pool for you shouldn't cost a fortune or be hard work.

In this article, we will explore the various options for buying a DIY pool and guide you toward making the right choice.

Fibreglass Pools: A Low-Maintenance Delight

Fibreglass pools cost less time and money to maintain than concrete and vinyl liner pools. As they have a smooth, non-porous surface, your skin won't be scuffed getting in and out, which will have your feet doing quite the happy dance. Take the time to explore the benefits of fibreglass pools and how they can turn your backyard into your favourite place to be at home.

Our customers love our fibreglass pool kits for their 35-year lifetime structural warranty, Australian-made equipment, fast installation and low chemical use, which means less 'on pool' time and more 'in pool' time.

Fibreglass Above-Ground Pools: Flexibility and Affordability

Fibreglass above-ground pools offer a practical solution for those seeking a more flexible and affordable alternative to an inground or vinyl liner pool. They are hugely popular in rural areas for their ease of installation and in suburban blocks where excavating an inground pool is a problem or the block is sloping.

The Kakadu Fibreglass above-ground pool is a stunning freestanding pool with a built-in spa seating area that's easy to install without earthworks. As it's fibreglass with a gel coat finish, you don't need to worry about leaking liners or framework rusting. The Kakadu is inspired by the beautiful round bays and rock pools of Kakadu National Park. Time for your pool cation!

Discover the advantages of above-ground fibreglass pools and how they can provide you and your family with hours of enjoyment without needing to excavate.

My wife and I grew up playing in swimming pools. Our daughters learnt to swim in our backyard fibreglass swimming pool. There is nothing quite like hearing kids splashing about and giggling. As pools do, our pool became a social magnet for friends, family and neighbours which we loved. Helping customers to have their own pool and saving customers thousands on their pool and equipment is the best job in the world.
