We have a pool for every family. We at Compass believe that any of these fibreglass pools can be a good family, whether big or small. All the pools provide the opportunity to enjoy your pool both for fitness and fun. Swimming, relaxing and playing water games with your family and friends was never easier. Larger pools provide space for more people so your teenage children can throw their pool parties, however small pools can also provide a lot of enjoyment for families. If you don’t have a lot of space, a smaller pool might be the only thing that will fit. A plunge pool could still provide great entertainment for a family who just wants a splash and relax. At night, the plunge pool can also provide a space for parents to unwind. The new Plunge 7.0 manufactured since January 2018 is great for kids because it provides a full-length bench for little ones to walk along and steps to allow easy entry. Similarly, the larger Vogue pools give a bench for small kids to play.
There’s a Contemporary to suit every backyard. Deep in the centre and shallow at both ends – these contemporary fibreglass swimming pools are perfect for family entertainment. Contemporary is the perfect choice for a family pool. With lengths from 8.3 to 10.9 metres, it fits most middle-sized backyards.
Looking for the perfect family pool? Look no further: The Riviera fibreglass swimming pool is ideal for a family that loves both swimming and entertainment, with entry steps and safety ledge the Riviera family swimming pools are safe for children and adults alike. With sizes from 7 to 11.8m, everyone will find its favourite.
Vogue is one of the most popular pool shapes in our portfolio. The pinnacle in contemporary pool design, making it the perfect centrepiece for your landscaped entertaining area. Its modern shape is enhanced by the symmetry of centrally positioned entry steps and bench seat, combining style and functionality.
X-Trainer fibreglass swimming pool is the number one option for many families. It’s great both for fitness and fun – with an unobstructed swimming corridor, a place for kids to rest and a shallow to deep floor. We have six models in the family pool range of the X-Trainer with lengths from 5.78m to 8.2m.
If you are thinking of a pool but your backyard area is limited, Plunge pool is the one to consider. It has all the features and benefits of bigger pools while fitting so well into smaller spaces. Our Plunge pools come in different sizes, with length up to 7.0m. They are extra deep so you can really relax (up to 1.74m).
The Fastlane is ideally suited for narrow blocks and serious swimmers. Its custom design options make it a great choice for those who have a specific site or design requirements. We have two standard length Fastlane pools in our portfolio. However, with the custom length option, Fastlane can be up to 30m long!
Why Are Family Pools So Popular?
A swimming pool is something that people of all ages can enjoy, from toddlers through to grandparents! Having fun in the water together is a great bonding experience for the whole family, but it also has a number of important health benefits essential for keeping you and your loved ones fit and active. Swimming is one of the best types of workout – it exercises almost all the muscles in the body as you’re pushing against the resistance of the water. This strengthens and tones your muscles at the same time as improving your cardiovascular health. Additionally, swimming increases mental wellbeing as it is highly effective at reducing stress and anxiety, helping you to feel relaxed and rejuvenated and allowing you to enjoy family life to the full once more.
Fun for the Whole Family
Swimming is also great fun! Whether you’re just starting to teach your kids to swim, or racing and playing games in the water with the older ones, swimming together strengthens the family bond and enables you to spend quality time in an activity that you will all enjoy. Having the convenience of a pool in your backyard means that any or all of you can take part in this enjoyable activity as often as you like, having a great impact on your health, wellbeing and family life.
Why Choose Compass Pools for Your Family?
When you’re choosing a pool for the family, the number one consideration has to be safety. At Compass, we take care to include as many safety features as possible in our pool designs. These include non-slip floors and steps, which are essential when it comes to preventing accidents – falls in the water can be extremely harmful to both young and old swimmers, so it’s vital that your family pool should include a means of preventing this from happening. Our family pools also include step ledges around the perimeters to reduce the risk of accidents even further.

Other safety elements are catered for by our groundbreaking self-cleaning pool system. This eliminates debris from your pool and keeps the water chemically balanced, creating a safer and healthier environment for you and your family. A self-cleaning pool system also avoids the need to use harsh pool cleaning chemicals which can be highly dangerous if they fall into the hands of children. In addition, this system saves you all the hard work of cleaning your pool, leaving you free to enjoy more quality time in the water with your family!
We are also recognised as innovators in the pool building industry due to our unique fibreglass ceramic composite technology – our pools contain a tough ceramic core which resists the deterioration that can be caused by the chemicals in pool water, making our pools far more durable and better value for money, enabling you to enjoy them for many years to come.
Our most popular family pools
Compass Pools offers a wide range of different shapes and sizes of pool, which can be customised to suit the available space in your backyard. The two designs which are most popular with Australian families at present are the Riviera and the Contemporary pools.
The Riviera is a classic design with curved edges, which suits a wide variety of architecture and surroundings. It’s highly child-friendly, with wide steps, a grip rail below the surface so they have something to hold onto if they get tired, and two “relaxation zones”, perfect for when they – or you – want to chill out!
The Contemporary is a rectangular pool which offers plenty of unobstructed space for swimming. It’s perfect for families as it is shallow at both ends, with a deeper section in the middle where you can enjoy games such as water volleyball – plenty of fun to be had for everyone involved!
