A: Before you start looking at swimming pool designs, it is important to think carefully about your goals for your overall outdoor area before you begin. What type of look do you want to achieve? There are many possibilities, including contemporary, classic, tropical, Balinese and any number other styles. It is important to consider how the theme you choose will fit with other existing features, such as the style of your home. The following checklist will help you get started:

  • How will I use the pool? – exercise, therapy, general play & recreation
  • What visual impression do I want? – central feature, secondary element, seasonal considerations, night-time considerations, style options i.e. naturalistic, classic, contemporary
  • How much paving do I want? – extensive, only at the entry, combined with decking or lawn
  • How do I want the pool enclosed? – standard fencing, glass fencing, wall, combination
  • What other features would I like? – water feature, fountain, speakers in the garden, pergola/gazebo, spa
  • How much storage do I need? – pool games and toys, pool equipment, pool chemical and maintenance supplies, cushions for furniture
  • What design and construction issues do I face? – pump/filter location, utilities, legal regulations, site and soil considerations


A: Obtaining accreditation to build a fibreglass pool to Australian/New Zealand Standard 1838:1994 means being measured and tested by an authorised, independent auditor. This accreditation is not easily achieved. Any pool company can claim to build to the Standard. For your peace of mind, always ask for a license number. Aqua Technics’ license BMP No. is 520101.
A: Every Aqua Technics pool is made using certified swimming pool grade fibreglass that has been trialed and tested to perform specifically for fibreglass pools. The fibreglass is new generation, high performance, corrosion resistant and eco-friendly.What’s more, our pools are made with a unique ceramic core which provides exceptional structural strength and stiffness as well as increasing heat retention & eliminating osmotic blisters.

The quality of the gelcoat is also important. An onsite gelcoat manufacturing facility and onsite fully qualified industrial chemist allows for daily batching of the gelcoat, which can be modified to suit ambient weather conditions, resulting in a better quality product

A: Aqua Technics offers patented Pool ColourGuard technology that resists the effects of UV rays and chemicals, guaranteeing colour that will not fade for the lifetime of the pool.
A: A full size ribbing system on the shell walls makes the pool independently structural when it’s installed.

Long sweeping benches, seats and swim outs have become an important feature of any great pool design. The support structure built into the pool should ensure they remain level with the rest of the pool. The support struts used by Aqua Technics are constructed from fibreglass so they become part of the pool shell to guarantee its integrity and increase the pool’s strength.

With step areas, it is a challenge to make sure the horizontal surface is supported and structurally sound and that the area can effectively be backfilled. Lateral baffles that the backfill can easily and effectively be placed around the pool provide effective support to the entire pool structure. Without these, it would be impossible to ensure the backfill is consolidated in and under the step area.

A: A wider edgebeam means the pool will be structurally sound without having to add secondary engineering works. This means there will not be any need for a concrete bond beam (subject to soil). The edgebeam on an Aqua Technics pool is 200mm wide. The design coupled with the width means there is no chance of cracking through expansion.

A: Aqua Technics offers the world’s first Lifetime Interior Surface Guarantee, as well as an Extended Lifetime Structural Warranty on every pool.
