Our Compass Express pools are perfect for smaller backyards and sites with difficult access

With minimal site works required compared to traditional in-ground pools, these free-standing fibre glass pools offer a great-looking above-ground (or partially in-ground) solution for anyone wanting a cost-effective yet great-looking pool.

Compass Express pools are similar to a container pool only smarter! Thanks to the super-tough full-fibreglass construction, the structure is not supported by steel or wood which means no risk of rust or rot becoming a problem in the future. Much like a swim-spa, these free standing pools come ready to place in your backyard – but they are a real fibreglass pool just like the ones you see in the ground!

Express pools sit atop a 110mm thick reinforced concrete slab, they do not require extensive excavation or cumbersome engineering plans, which means less hassle and logistics.

Features and Benefits

Install freestanding or partially in-ground

Our Express range offers the flexibility to suit different sites by having the ability to be installed completely out-of-ground, or partially in ground (600mm).

Pre-fabricated for faster installation

Express pools sit atop a 110mm thick reinforced concrete slab, they do not require extensive excavation or cumbersome engineering plans, which means less hassle and logistics.Your pool can arrive pre-plumbed and you could be swimming on delivery day! Just fill it up, connect to power and start swimming.

Lightweight and easy to transport

Unlike container pools, the Compass Express system is a super strong fibreglass structure meaning it is easier and more cost effective to transport and crane into place.

Easy to install and customise

Clad directly onto the frame to create your preferred exterior finish. Compass Express pools come ‘nude’ meaning you can fully deck around them or clad the exterior to suit your design. Bolt decking bearers directly onto the pool support structure and easily attach decking to your pool for fast, easy surrounds. This means fewer decking posts and faster build times!

Made the Impossible, Possible

From day one the team at Ultimate Pools made the impossible possible. A difficult site with narrow access and a steep building slope did not deter them. Plus their Compass maxi-rib pool was the only type of pool that would suit our site - a fabulous innovative product. Every step of the way they founded solutions to obstacles and every team member was outstanding in their knowledge, commitment and speedy communication. Professional from start to finish. Thank you to the Ultimate team.
