We are looking at having a fibreglass pool installed next year and wanted any feedback/recommendations on companies, and also some indication on the cost.
We are looking at a rectangular 3-4m by 8 m fibreglass pool, with a few extras such as lighting and waterfall feature. Could anyone give an idea on the cost for this? WE would also want the paving surrounding the pool to be completed by the company.
I have been looking at Narellan pools, compass pools and leisure pools. We like the desgn of the leisure pool products best, but would like to hear from anyone who had positive/negative experinces with any of these companies.
As stated we are in the Brisbane/Ipswich area.
Any advice would be much appreciated.

Hi - we have been recently looking at pool prices and fiberglass V concrete. An 8 x 4m pool will cost around the $28 - $30k, compass pools came in at $33k - this is before any additional paving/concreting.
I have read some bad reviews on Leisure pools, so have a google on them. We have decided to go with a concrete pool because essentially the are the same price but have a better sales point when we decide to see our house.
I have looked at many pool companies over the past 6 weeks and they can vary in terms of what you get for your money. Some may seem cheap but due to the quality of filtration/pump etc you may be paying more in the long run.
You also need to be aware of the excavation allowance. This is where the budget can get out of control, make sure your company gives you a realistic dig allowance, that way you will less likely pay more money.

Did you end up using Leisure Pools? We're on the Gold Coast and considering using them because we like the design of their pools, etc. But I really worry about all of the negative posts; admittedly, many are from interstate, but still .... Would appreciate any feedback you may have?

You could check Compass Pools on the net. They are OK.
Thanks Saint Mike. I haven't yet gotten a quote from Compass because from reading people's posts on this forum, they seem significantly more expensive. But I guess getting a quote and listening to the spiel can't hurt! Thanks again.

I have had good experience with these guys. I recommend contacting them with any questions you have. Their advice is valuable. These guys are good at pool designs, concrete pools, in-ground and above ground pools, water features and landscape. They construct pools in Gold Coast and Brisbane areas. http://concretepoolsgoldcoast.com.au

We decided to go with Compass even though they were significantly more expensive. Now I am really starting to regret it.
Worst communication I have had in building.
