Are you interested in getting a pool, but don't want the costs and lengthy construction period associated with inground pools?
An above ground pool could be a great option - these pools are much more budget-friendly and easier to install.
With Brisbane's premier above ground pool specialist working for you, just about any type of pool is possible!
We have years of experience installing both concrete and fibreglass above ground swimming pools in and around Brisbane.
After inspecting your backyard, we can assess and recommend types and designs of pools that would suit your house and yard.
We work closely with our clients to create customised pools that meet their specific needs and preferences.
With our above ground pools, you can enjoy all the benefits of a traditional swimming pool without the hassle and expense of an in-ground installation.
Wooden decking around your above ground pool gives it a premium feel that isn't possible with an inground pool.
Our wooden decks are built to last, using high-quality materials that are durable and weather-resistant. We understand the importance of safety, which is why we ensure that all of our decks are structurally sound and meet Australian standards.
Our decks are fully customisable, allowing you to choose from a variety of styles and colours to recreate your vision for your backyard oasis. We can work with any budget to provide an affordable solution.
Even for above ground pools, proper excavation is crucial for the longevity and stability of your pool. That's why we take the time to carefully survey and prepare the ground before installation, ensuring a level and secure foundation.
We take care to minimise disruption and noise while excavating the foundation of your pool.
Your yard will be left in a clean and tidy environment once excavation is complete, with minimal lawn impact.
Above-ground pools are significantly more affordable than in-ground pools, and they require less structural damage to the property during the building process than in-ground pool excavation.
Above-ground pools are also often easier to perform DIY repairs on in the event that leaks occur, and they are easier to remove from your property if you decide you no longer want a swimming pool.
Unlike in-ground pools, the demolition of above-ground pools does not have to be disclosed to homebuyers during the selling process.
It typically costs around $10,000 to have a standard, vinyl-lined above-ground pool fully set up by a professional installation team.
Above-ground pool prices can vary based on the size of the pool you are interested in, customisations you would like to make to the equipment and liner, and whether or not special access equipment is needed to install the pool at your property.
Seasonal, DIY above-ground pools may also be available at your local hardware or pool stores.
However, these options are meant to be disassembled at the end of each swim season and are not considered permanent structures. We focus on above-ground pools that are established as semi-permanent structures.
The most common materials used in the construction of above-ground pools are aluminium, steel, wood, resin, and a composite mixture often composed of wood and polymers. The most common interior surface for above-ground pools is a vinyl liner.
Vinyl liners have a low initial cost, have low porosity (which reduces the likelihood of algae growth), and are available in a wide range of patterns and colours.
Most swimmers find vinyl-lined pools to be smooth and comfortable, and this interior finish also requires much less scrubbing and maintenance than other surfaces.
Above-ground pools tend to last anywhere from 7-30 years, but most of these pools will begin to require extensive repairs around 15 years of age, with the liner being replaced even more frequently than this.
The point at which your pool will begin to need significant repairs can vary based on the materials used in your pool's construction, the weather conditions where you live, the quality of service provided by your pool's construction and installation teams, and whether or not the pool is adequately maintained.
In general, it is recommended that you leave an absolute minimum of one metre of open space on each side of your above-ground pool. In addition to this, be sure to leave enough room so that you can construct pool fencing that meets Queensland pool safety regulation requirements.
As long as you can fit both a pool and appropriate fencing within your property line, there are pools available to fit many different sizes of backyards. Even if you have narrow access to your backyard, there are pool installation teams available that specialise in accessing tight places.
Just like inground pools, above-ground pools require landscaping. Many homeowners choose to plant tall shrubs and grasses near the outside of their above-ground pools to hide the tall sides of the pool.
If you are taking this approach, be sure there is room to access the walls of your pool for maintenance without harming your plants.
Other homeowners enjoy adding wooden decking to above-ground pools. This adds an elevated space for sunbathing and allows poolside guests to have a view of the pool that mimics an inground one.
