Unique features of Compass fibreglass pools

Learn why Hamilton & Mt Gambier pool owners love Compass Pools

Durable and fantastic looking swimming pools

40 years of innovations of Compass Pools in Australia

Compass fibreglass pools are so different from the other pools available on the market. Manufactured by an innovative Australian company Compass Pools Australia, they combine 40 years of experience in research and development with knowledge and passion for creating the best swimming pools.

We love Compass swimming pools and would recommend these pools to anyone looking at transforming their Hamilton or Mt Gambier backyards.

The ceramic composite technology makes a Compass pool much stronger than an average fibreglass pool. Thanks to the Bi-luminite colour system, these fibreglass pools look stunning, creating a 3D effect in the pool water.

Nonetheless, these swimming pools can literally clean themselves. Thanks to the unique Vantage infloor cleaning system, you’ll be able to own a self-cleaning pool that is healthier to swim in, requires less maintenance and saves you money.
