If you want a small swimming pool and you are wondering about the best ways to make it work in the setting of your backyard, Compass Pools Australia is here to help. We offer a range of pools specifically designed in small sizes, including smaller versions of our bestselling pools the Contemporary and the X-Trainer, and Plunge pools available in various lengths and depths to suit your needs.

As so many of our clients are now choosing to install smaller pools in their backyards, we have a great understanding of what they need from their pools, and as a result we can offer a wide range of small pool ideas, helping you to make a more compact pool work perfectly in your backyard.

Making your small pool meet your needs

Choosing the right small pool is paramount, as the right pool will depend on what you intend to use it for. If you are a serious swimmer, or you have a family and want a pool which is large enough for playing games with the kids, you would be better choosing a smaller version of a regular pool, such as the Contemporary or X-Trainer. These still offer plenty of space for fitness and fun in the water.

However, if you intend to use your small pool more for relaxation than for swimming laps, you might want to consider a plunge pool. This has a shorter length and width, but offers more depth, so you can truly relax and unwind in peace and comfort.

Small pool ideas from Compass Pools

At Compass Pools, we can help you find the right small pool for your needs, as well as offering plenty of ideas for the best ways to landscape your backyard around the pool. This enables you to make the best use of the space while creating a stunning backyard design which will add value to your home. We can even build your pool above-ground if this will suit the space better, thanks to our super-strong Maxi Rib technology.
