There are a great many superlatives that one could draw from to describe how happy we are with the pool, how much we appreciative all the hard work that went into the construction phase and how professional and friendly all your team were. However, we think that this experience can be summed up by saying, that when asked if we would recommend Pools by Design to construct a pool for friends and family, our reply, without hesitation is a resounding yes!...in a heartbeat. Thank you to all, it has been an absolute pleasure. Our pool is quite wonderful and definitely the centrepiece of our new home.

Only after engaging QBCC we were able to get pools by design to complete our pool. Their associate contractors Moonah Landscapes were even worse, leaving us a catalogue of damages that we're still correcting.

18 months since the pool was originally completed, we have managed (with they help of QBCC) to finally get all of the defects completed. Communication was terrible, they seemed to come and go as they pleased, continually missing agreed milestones. They did make good on their promise to have the pool completed by Christmas (2016) by 3 days. I can't possibly recommend this company. The owner tries hard but his communication problems continually let him down.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an in-ground concrete pool and a fibre glass pool?

Different structure of the walls and floor i.e. fibreglass has just an approximately 20mm thick wall of fibreglass, compared to a concrete pool which has a 200mm concrete section interlaced with steel reinforcing at least every 300mm apart. It then has an internal water proofing layer of either 20mm pebble crete (pebble and cement) or a layer of ceramic tile.

Can pools by Design assist with landscaping and fencing?

Yes we can help with both. Pools by Design can recommend what fencing is required to satisfy the regulations and give you an approximate price for the fencing, which can be included into the pool pricing. Pools by Design can help you with general landscaping ideas and then organise an associated landscaper to finalise the design and provide you with a final price.
