Talk to a Pool Builder

To get more pool design ideas, we can only recommend you contact one of our authorised pool builders to discuss your project with them. They have plenty of experience and have installed many pools. They can show you some previous installations, get you on some sites and explain, what is possible and what would be worth to consider when thinking of the design of your new swimming pool.

Infinity Pool by Compass

Build a beautiful infinity pool with Compass

Infinity pools have gained great popularity over the past few decades and they are one of the great idea concepts you could use for your new swimming pool project. Often placed to stunning effect in holiday resorts and luxurious estates, an infinity pool is designed to give the impression that it merges into the surrounding landscape. Sometimes, infinity pools are referred to as infinity edge, disappearing edge or negative edge pools. One of their characteristics is that there is at least one optically missing or invisible edge of the pool which enables the scenery to be viewed in a different perspective. The water flowing over this edge produces an effect of water with no boundary. Whether the view is of the sky, cityscape, trees, forest, lake or sea, this spectacular architectural element creates a remarkable showpiece for any home. Discover astonishing swimming pool ideas by looking at the infinity pool installations in this article!

CPA News - Fibreglass Pools Multimedia Knowledge Base - Compass Pools Australia Video Library

New Video Section Launched on Our Website

At Compass, we try to provide as much information and knowledge for our customers as possible. Texts and images can be informative, however, sometimes it’s better to see and hear it in the form of a video. We already had a lot of videos on the website, but they were scattered around the site and could not always be accessed readily. From now on, you’ll find more than 30 videos in the dedicated Video Library. You can access it from the main menu under Advice – Video Library. In the Library, we have organised more than 30 videos into seven categories. Get pool design ideas, learn about different factors influencing the quality and price of the pool, pool building process and pool ownership issues. At the top, there are five featured technology videos, which explain the hidden advantages that make Compass Pools so much better than other fibreglass pools.
