At Compass Pools, we constantly strive to be at the forefront of new developments in the pool industry. Our many innovations have made us a trusted pool manufacturer throughout Australia, and the rest of the world. We aim to make our products as strong, safe and durable as possible, always seeking to improve them even further to offer quality pools that our customers can enjoy for many years into the future. One of our proudest innovations is the use of vinyl ester resin instead of the traditional polyester resin, which is commonly used in fibreglass pools.

Why vinyl ester resin makes a difference

Vinyl ester resin is not only a higher quality material, it also offers far better protection for your pool because its structure is more resistant to water damage. This improves the strength of your pool and ensures it will last a lot longer. We only use the very highest quality resin, which is specially formulated and mixed fresh to make sure it lasts as long as possible. It can also be tailored to suit the climate and conditions where your individual pool will be situated.

Creating the best pools starts with sourcing the best fibreglass pool raw materials

Anthony Cross: So Paul you’ve mentioned a lot about vinyl ester resins. You tell us that you’ve searched the world, you’ve been to the factories, you’ve sourced out the best product. But I also am aware in my role that you’re bringing these products in, particularly the vinyl ester resin and you’re reformulating them here in Australia before delivering them to our factory. What is important about doing that? Why is that something that you guys do?

How are Compass Pools fibreglass pools unique and different?

Anthony Cross: Paul, you’ve worked with Compass for quite a few years. I guess it’s fair to say we do things a little differently to a lot of other fibreglass pool manufacturing companies. I know that you’ve spent a fair bit of time with us and your involvement stretches back many years, particularly with Ian Mewett who is the founder and owner of Compass Pools. What can you tell us about that collaboration between you and Ian and how that’s shaped your involvement in our industry and particularly with Compass Pools?
