Where to Begin

Building a swimming pool may be one of the biggest financial decisions you make regarding your house. The sheer variety of options in pool shapes, types, sizes, finishes and colours may be overwhelming.

Start by contacting the New Zealand Master Pool Builders Guild who will be able to make some recommendations for your local area. The Trends Outdoor Living magazine usually has several pool builders showcased. If you have an architect involved in your design, they may also have a list of specialist pool builders the have worked with.

Talk to several pool builders, or contact us and we can you a few options. Ask to see some of the pools they have built, or a photo album,  and most importantly if possible speak to a previous client on site.
