Pool & Spa Businesses - Our Trusted Operators & Service Providers In Australia

Below is a list of pages where we discuss and recommend some of the best trades, services and shops out there in the pool industry in Australia.

Why List These Companies?

Our objective is to give you a list of companies and tradies that operate in your local area and which you can rely on to do quality work at reasonable prices.

These aren't 'fly by night' style operations, but real local operators that have been proudly servicing their community for some time.

We've all heard horror stories of dodgy pool builders or installers who are great at selling you on their services, but have pretty shoddy workmanship when it actually comes time to getting the job done.

We want to help you avoid these operators that stain the industry and give everyone a bad name. In doing so, we hope to help you avoid the headache and major time and money sink that choosing a bad operator can be.

If you have had a bad experience with any company that we list below, please let me know and I'll look at removing them from the list.

What Are The Different Types Of Pool Companies?

Pool companies offer a wide range of services, but they can be broadly broken down into those for new or prospective pool owners, and those with existing pools that need remediation.

Here's some examples of each of them.

New & Prospective Pool Owners

  • Pool Building
  • Pool Installation
  • Fencing
  • Tiling
  • Equipment Installation
  • Safety Inspections

Existing Pool Owners

  • Pool Renovations
  • Pool Resurfacing
  • Landscaping
  • Leak Detection
  • Pump Repair
  • Pre-purchase Inspections

Should My Choice Of Operator Depend On My Pool Surface?

Depending on the work that needs to be done to your pool, your choice of company may be limited by your pool surface.

When it comes to pool building, installation, resurfacing and renovations, many companies will only work with certain types of surfaces, such as fibreglass, concrete or pebblecrete.

For fencing, equipment installation, inspections and landscaping, the pool surface and type is generally irrelevant - operators can work with any type.

How Should I Choose A Service Provider For My Pool?

Recommendations & Word Of Mouth

Our guides right here are a great start, but if you already use a company to regularly service, maintain or clean your pool, consider asking them for advice.

They know all about your pool already, and they will know some companies in the local area who can assist you with whatever work needs doing.


Any decent pool builder or installer should be registered with relevant construction body in your state. In Queensland, for example, this is the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC).

Pool servicing companies and chemical suppliers should be accredited with the Swimming Pool & Spa Association of Australia (SPASA).

These accreditations show that the company has jumped through a few hoops and demonstrated to their governing body that they are reliable, trustworthy and fit to serve their community - meaning you can trust them.

It also gives you an avenue for complaint if you engage them and ultimately feel that their work was not up to scratch.

Warranties & Insurance

All operators should back up their work with a warranty. The larger the job, the more important this becomes. Pools shouldn't develop leaks, surfaces shouldn't crack and tiles shouldn't splinter soon after contractors have finished work and demobilised from the site.

Warranties are critical for ensuring that any sub-standard work is corrected. The company should also have insurance to make sure that they can pay for any damage they may do to your house and garden while working on and around your pool.

There are countless horror stories of people's driveways and gardens being destroyed during a pool build.

Job History

For small jobs this isn't necessary, but if you are building a new pool, get references from the company for the last few jobs they did. Ask these references how their job went and if they were happy with the builder - this can tell you a lot!
