High quality fibreglass pool

When you choose Compass Pools you will get a truly first class fibreglass pool. Our pools are manufactured in a humidity-controlled factory to the highest standards. This ensures that your pool will be long-lasting and very cost effective compared to choosing a cheaper, inferior quality product. Additionally, our pools can be heated to a higher temperature than other models, which often have a limit of 30 degrees before the pool starts to blister.

Some pool manufacturers also have designs where the gelcoat will be in contact with water which means that the pool will become discoloured by the chlorine. We offer a more carefully designed product to provide a better lifespan.

Installation Process

  • 01

    Choose pool shell

    The most important part, come down to the showroom and choose your pool!

  • 02
    Pool Installation

    Excavate hole

    The first step in the install process is to mark out on the ground the size of the pool and the finished level, you will mark out an overdig to allow for backfill, you will then excavate to the depth of the pool plus room for backfill along with a trench for the services to the plant room.

  • 03

    Lay base

    Once the hole is dug, you will then order in a lorry of micro concrete / stabalised sand / screed mix to lay the base of the pool in the bottom of the hole. Its a good idea to hire in a laser from a hire shop to enable you to get this spot on.

  • 04

    Lift pool into hole

    The pool will be delivered on an articulated lorry, you should hire in a telehandler or excavator large enough to lift the pool from the lorry into the hole, if sufficient access is not available (2.5m) then a local crane company will be able to lift the pool into position. This pool itself being made of composite is extremely light for its size. Once in the hole you can fine tune the level and position using a laser

  • 05

    Run pipework

    The pool will be pre plumbed with all its fittings into the shell, you will be supplied with 25m rolls of flexible pipework that need running in the trench you dug earlier. There are 3 fittings on the pool shell to glue the pipe to (glue supplied). You can then backfill the pipes with builders sand to protect them.

  • 06

    Attach filtration

    The filtration system will either come as a pre plumbed box, or as component parts to be fitted into a shed or outbuilding. Its your option. The 3 pipes from the pool and lighting cables will be attached to this. We can hire a pressure testing kit to you to ensure you did everything correctly. Alternatively hire one of our engineers.

  • 07


    Once the pool is all plumbed up its now time to backfill the pool with screed mix, this is done by machine, barrow or pump. Its a 1-2 day job carefully packing all the crevices to ensure you have a strong shell.

  • 08

    Fill with water

    Its now ready to put the hose in, 1-3 days depending on your water pressure and you will be ready to power up.

  • 09
    Compass Pools Outdoor Pools


    Now its full of water, its just a case of powering up the filtration system, testing and you are away. Allow a few days to heat up depending on the heat source you have specified.
