Melbourne is the capital of Victoria and best known for its colourful laneway artwork and its four seasons in a day weather. While the weather can be temperamental at the best of times, this state is lucky enough to experience hot summers and pleasant temperatures with the exception of winter. Although the winters are cold, this doesn’t mean you can’t reap the benefits that pool ownership can provide. Before getting your heart set on a pool type and company, it pays to look around to make sure you are getting the best value for your money. Our expert pool builders are local and will work with you to meet your expectations and hopefully surpass them. You can sit back and relax while we take care of the entire pool build. Here are some things you will need to factor in when installing a pool:
Knowing the Safety and Planning Laws for Melbourne
Every state and territory in Australia has pool building regulations enforced. They can vary from state to state and as a pool owner, you must comply with the regulations specific to your state to avoid being issued a fine. This is what you need to know about pool safety and planning laws in Melbourne.
You should only hire a registered pool builder to install your pool. Before the construction of your new pool can begin, you will need to obtain a building permit and it will need to be issued by a registered building surveyor. You may also need a planning permit before work can start. A detailed building application must be submitted and the details must comply with relevant standards. Once the permit has been granted, your pool can start being built. Construction must begin within 12 months of the permit being granted. Once construction has started, it must be finished in 6 months. If not, you will have to apply for an extension. The good news is, your pool builder should take care of all of this for you so you don’t have to. You are responsible for maintaining your pool fence barrier and ensuring it is compliant at all times. Your pool or spa must also be registered with local council.

Which fibreglass pool is best suited to me in Melbourne?
Fibreglass pools are a sought-after choice for many as their benefits simply cannot be matched by other pool types. The interior of a fibreglass pool is made of a gel-coat that is smooth and impermeable. This makes it extremely difficult for bacteria and algae to settle on the walls and grow. Pool cleaning a breeze and you can save you money on chemicals too. Unlike other types of pools that can take upwards of six months to install, fibreglass pools can be installed in a matter of a week. The best type of fibreglass pool for your home depends on a few things, such as how much room you have in your backyard, your budget and what you ultimately want out of having a pool. In Melbourne, you will find a huge variety of fibreglass pools. Those residing in the inner city generally stick with smaller varieties like our swim spas and plunge pools as they normally don’t have the luxury of space like the outer suburbs do. The outer suburbs often have larger pools than the city and here you will find styles such as our Venice and Billabong. Our highly skilled pool builders can run through all your options to find the absolute best fit for your home.
Can I use my pool all year round with Melbourne weather?
As we touched on earlier, Melbourne has cold winters and the weather can unpredictable at times, however, this doesn’t mean you need to go without a pool. One of the many great things about fibreglass pools is that they insulate and retain heat for longer than other pool types so if you were wanting a pool for your home and want to be able to enjoy it throughout the year, it’s a good idea to consider a heating system. You may be thinking pool heating sounds expensive? It can be although, heating has come a long way over the years and it may not be as costly as you think. Options such as solar can drastically reduce your heatings running costs and it can warm up the water by 10 degrees, meaning you can use your pool comfortably for more months of the year.
