Above ground pools have certainly come a long way. No longer are they the stock standard, basic round pool you may remember from your youth. Nowadays, they come in myriad sizes, shapes and colours – and they might not even be above ground!
“Above ground pools, also widely known as modular pools, have undergone a huge transformation since their early days,” says Chris Fitzmaurice from pool and spa specialist, Swimart
, which stocks an extensive range of Australian made modular pools from Sterns Pools.
An affordable option
“They’re arguably the most economical option and, thanks to technological advancements, they can look just as sophisticated as concrete models. In fact, the new-style, semi-submerged modular pool can now easily be mistaken for the much more expensive cement in-ground pool - particularly when you dress it with a stylish wraparound deck and modern fencing.”

Take it with you when you go
Portability is another reason for the popularity of modular pools, Chris says. “People are living in their homes for shorter periods than they have in the past. So if you decide to sell your house, it makes sense to take your pool with you to enjoy at your new home – and that’s something which is completely plausible with a modular pool.”
“If your children have been pestering you for a swimming pool, but you think you can’t afford one, think again. The growing popularity of modular pools is, among other things, driven by the surprising speed, ease and minimal cost of installation. Modular pools represent great value when compared to in-ground pools.”
Easy to install
Swimart’s modular pools start from $4000 for a self-installed model. “This represents a great investment and return on your money – plus you have the pleasure of the resort lifestyle that it offers you and your family,” says Chris.

Something for everyone
Swimart’s swimming pools from Sterns Pools are available in various sizes and shapes. They are made from galvanised Australian steel and powder coated twice for durability and long-lasting good looks. Other components are made of resin or high quality PVC and the heavy duty liners make them stronger and easier to maintain.
All in one simple package
The swimming pool package includes an essential suite of award winning Waterco EnviroPro products which, depending on the package you select, could include a pump, filter, chlorinator, LED lights, glass pearl media or a heat pump.
“The EnviroPro range saves you precious time, water and energy and reduces pool maintenance to achieve the highest levels of sustainability so you can simply sit back and enjoy your pool,” says Chris.
