Swimming Pool

    Has anybody had a swimming pool built since they have been in SA? My OH is really keen to get one but after seeing some dodgy companies on Today Tonight or A Current Affair would be really pleased if anybody could recommend a company they had used.

    We had our pool put in last week.

    Lots of cowboys out there.

    We used Adelaide pool and spa - no problems so far. Very impressed withthese guys.

    Freedom pools was another one that is highly recommended.

    Were you thinking of having an in ground or above ground pool? We had an above ground pool last year from The Pool and Spa Shop in Lonsdale. They were great but the installer was a nightmare, pm me if you want his name, he's definitely one to avoid!:realmad:

    Roughly how long would you say your approval took?. And I assume you just apply to your local Council. Do they charge you for approval?.

    Many Thanks.

    We signed on the dotted line around the first week in july. Planning permission only took 3 weeks. Pool went in last week.

    It is winter though - in summer it takes longer as the demand is greater.

    Unfortunatly you pay your money and take your chance in this game.:arghh:

    I have seen good and bad with many companies including all of the above.

    No easy answer im afraid.

    Hi

     

    Just wondering on average how much does an inground pool cost. I know there are different sizes and shapes . But wondered what the average price is.

     

    Thanks

    Inground pools are the dearest.

    Concrete pools will start at around $30,000 as a rough figure.
