One of the things we love most about being in the pool industry is that we build a product which is all about family! There is something truly satisfying knowing that we help transform people’s backyards into a place where they can enjoy many years of fun making awesome memories!

Our family-owned business started in 1980 and thanks to smart innovation (and a strong focus on building the world’s best pools), we have grown into one of Australia’s largest and most respected pool manufacturers. But what we are most proud of is that we have always stayed true to our family values.

We are forever grateful to our customers, our dealer network, our team, and our suppliers. Which is why giving back to our community is deeply important to us.

We’re celebrating hitting the huge milestone of donating $1Million dollars to McGrath Foundation and we’re not stopping there!

In 2017 we made the conscious decision to throw our support towards organisations that were making a difference to the thousands of families and communities that have helped Compass Pools grow into a household name.

Compass Pools Australia Support of Australian families by McGrath FoundationOur decision to support The McGrath Foundation was a simple one. We’re a family business and we build a product which is all about fun family times… we’re there for the good times!

But at some point, in our lives we are all affected by breast cancer; if not directly, then through our mum, grandma, sister cousin or friends. The McGrath Foundation are there for our families when we need them the most. They provide care and support for patients and their families as they go through the journey of dealing with breast cancer. Their support is invaluable and each year they help thousands of Australian families to get through.

Compass Pools Australia Funding breast care nurses in Australia is costlyWe may be a relatively small family-owned business, but we can and will make a difference. We’ve committed to fully funding a McGrath Breast Care nurse at a cost of over $150,000 each year.

That’s why our pools are pink!

When your Compass Pools dealer arrives with your new pool, you will notice that the exterior of your pool is painted pink. It’s our way of reminding you that you’ve made a difference. Every time someone chooses a Compass Pool, they are also choosing to support the McGrath Foundation too.

By participating in the climb. The Compass dealers contributed close to $15,000 to the John Maclean Foundation which works tirelessly to inspire and change the lives of Australian children who use wheelchairs.

Helping the Live for Lily Foundation in Bendigo

Our Bendigo dealer BG’s Pools and Spas have been working hard to raise funds for the Live for Lilly Foundation and their pursuit to find a cure for Child Cancer. We decided to help out with a little gift of our own. Our CEO, Anthony Cross, recently flew to Melbourne to attend the charity’s annual Butterfly Ball where we topped up BG’s efforts with an Additional $5,000. To help raise awareness we’ve also made a special order at the factory and every Compass Pools for BG’s has a turquoise exterior!
