There are many questions that need to be answered when thinking of a pool. Future pool owners are confronted with many choices and decisions and sometimes, it all can be overwhelming. There are important considerations to be made well before starting to plan the pool. They include selecting the best pool material, manufacturer and an experienced local pool builder. Next, you need to select the best pool shape, colour, technologies and accessories. You need to plan the pool construction project and align it with other works, especially when building a new home. Nonetheless, pool owners are concerned about the pool maintenance cost and the questions of “living with the pool”.

At Compass, we understand that it is so important to have as many resources as possible. We have put together our advice articles and FAQs to assist you in gaining knowledge about building a pool and pool ownership. If you need more advice, please be sure to talk to one of our authorised pool builders in your area. They will be happy to assist you with all the pre-sales questions that will arise and they will provide you with a free quote on your Compass fibreglass swimming pool.

Why you should think like a pool owner when buying a swimming pool

Buying a swimming pool can be a really exciting experience, but if you want to be sure that you remain happy with your choices for years to come, it pays to put yourself in the shoes of a pool owner rather than a pool buyer. When buying a swimming pool there are natural and obvious things to think about. Careful consideration should go into important aspects like shape, size, colour, location …

What are the benefits of salt chlorination systems?

Salt chlorination is the most popular form of pool sanitation today. When you install a salt water pool, you are getting a chlorinated pool without the hassle of having to lug home drums of chlorine or using commercial chlorine which contains other products which can cause problems. A salt water pool makes owning a clean pool easy. When the system is also automated, you can be sure the chlorine needs are matched to the pool needs and that the pH levels are kept in balance as well.

Advantages of Pool Cleaning And Circulation Systems

With ten years’ experience working with Compass Pools, probably the biggest inclusion for a swimming pool that makes the biggest difference when I talk to people and revisit pool owners is certainly the Vantage in-floor cleaning and circulation system. Everyone gets really excited by the fact that it cleans the swimming pool. That’s a great thing and we love the fact that it does. But the in-floor cleaning and circulation is so much more than that.

It’s a system that is designed to effectively circulate water. Let’s face it, a swimming pool is very similar to a bath, it’s just a lot bigger. If you get in the bath at night and make the water all dirty, when you get out you can pull the plug. You can’t pull the plug easily on your swimming pool. So some time ago, the industry determined, how do we make that pool healthy? To do it, we’ve done it through the use of sanitisers and a fairly basic circulation system.

Pool Planning Advice Before Building

Having worked at Compass for a little under ten years now, one of the best pieces of advice I can give anybody considering or looking at putting in a swimming pool is take your time. A swimming pool is generally something that when people are considering putting one in, they’re usually pretty committed to their house. It usually means a long term investment in the property that they currently reside in.

This is not like going out and purchasing a motor car. If you went out and bought a motor car and decided, you know what, I just don’t like this car, there is something wrong with it, you can sell it. You can’t sell your pool without selling your house. So you want to be really careful when you think about all of the different options and all of the different inclusions that you can make part of that swimming pool.

Looking for a self cleaning pool? Discover the in-floor cleaning and circulation system

One of the exciting things about working here is I can’t tell you the number of times that somebody has walked in the door or I’ve turned up at somebody’s house and I’ve said, how did you hear about Compass Pools? They’ve said, Joe down the road, has one of your pools, he’s had it for eight years and he’s never cleaned it. We hear that a lot. The reason for that is that Compass Pools was the first company in the world to create the world’s first in floor cleaning and circulation system for fibreglass pools.

That’s not something you have to have but it is pretty hard for us to install a pool today without somebody giving it really serious consideration or adding it to their swimming pool.
