A swimming pool does not have to be huge. A small backyard pool can still be an extremely valuable and enjoyable addition to your property. Many Australian homeowners these days are choosing these small backyard pools which fit neatly into the space, while still offering all the functionality they need.

At Compass Pools, we cater for customers who do not want a large swimming pool, but still want to enjoy all the benefits of having their own space to relax in, in privacy and comfort.

Our range of small backyard pools

If your backyard is small, or if you would prefer a pool which does not take up all the available space, we offer a wide range of options for you. For a start, we make all of our most popular pools – the Contemporary, the Riviera, the X-Trainer and the Vogue – in a number of different sizes. This means that if you like the design of a particular pool, but do not want it to take up a large amount of space, you can still have the swimming pool you want by selecting the smallest size.

By offering this range, we enable you to select a small backyard pool which fits neatly into your outdoor space and also coordinates well with the architectural style of your home. This means you can create a beautiful and cohesive design that you will continue to enjoy for many years to come. Luxurious does not always have to mean large!

Pools designed for smaller backyards

We also offer a range of plunge and courtyard pools, which are specifically designed to fit into a smaller backyard space. These are designed and built to the same high quality as our larger pools, but offer you a more compact space to relax in the water and a perfect way to cool down on a hot day.
