Mo­du­lars make a splash

ABOVE ground pools have changed quite con­sid­er­ably since the hum­ble days of hav­ing a stan­dard, round base.

They now come in all shapes, sizes and colours and fit in well with al­most any back­yard.

“They’re ar­guably the most eco­nom­i­cal op­tion and, thanks to tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vance­ments, they can look just as so­phis­ti­cated as con­crete mod­els,” says Swimart na­tional man­ager Chris Fitz­mau­rice.

“The semi-sub­merged mo­du­lar pool can now eas­ily be mis­taken for the ce­ment in-ground pool, par­tic­u­larly when you dress it with a stylish wrap­around deck and mod­ern fenc­ing.”

Fitz­mau­rice says as well as the speed, ease and low cost of in­stal­la­tion, mo­du­lar pools are a pop­u­lar choice be­cause of their porta­bil­ity.

“Peo­ple are liv­ing in their homes for shorter pe­ri­ods than in the past, so if you de­cide to sell your house, it makes sense to take your pool with you,” he says.

Their base cost also tends to be much lower than the av­er­age in-ground pool.

Fitz­mau­rice says Swimart’s gal­vanised steel mo­du­lar pools start from $4000 for a self-in­stalled model.

Re­mem­ber that fenc­ing is still a safety re­quire­ment for mo­du­lar pools. More in­for­ma­tion at
