Creating your perfect pool

Our team of expert pool constructors specialise in the installation of in-ground pools. Compass Pools are delivered in one piece to your home and are then craned into a hole that has been excavated. When you buy through us you can choose from more than 30 different styles and sizes of pool, which will then be delivered to your property.

We completely understand that a swimming pool is a huge purchase and that you need an end product that is perfect for your needs and requirements. To achieve this our architects work with you on every step of the process, from the initial consultation and design through to the build and aftercare.

You can choose from a broad range of options to bring your dream swimming pool to life, including customisation with different colours and water features.

Pool installation costs

One of our most commonly asked questions is ‘how much does a pool cost?’ Of course the answer depends on a huge range of factors including the size of the pool and where it is going to be installed. In most scenarios it is cheaper to have a pool installed outdoors due to the additional costs in altering your home, and additionally choosing a builder with a good reputation can save significant costs later down the line.

At Compass Pools we offer excellent value for money and prices that can’t be matched by our competitors. This is because we specialise in one-piece ceramic pools which can be built more quickly and cost-effectively than standard concrete pools. Additionally, we believe our pools offer superior durability, longevity and quality than concrete options.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take to install my pool?

Installing a pool is a complicated process beginning with groundworks, progressing to the installation of the pool itself and then onto the finishing touches. At Compass Pools we can typically offer installation times that are far faster than other pool builders due to the fact that we utilise carbon ceramic composite pools which are transported to you and installed in one piece. For simple installations with minimal complications a pool can be installed in between 4 and 6 weeks.

Do I need to have planning permission in place?

No, it is generally not necessary to get planning permission for an outdoor pool. In the majority of cases, swimming pools can be built without planning permission as long as they don’t take up more than half of the garden or are not overlooked by a public highway or path. There are some additional exceptions that you need to be aware of – if your property is listed or in an area of outstanding natural beauty, you will likely to need to gain permission to place a pool on it. In any case it is often best to seek the advice of your local council.

Will a pool affect my home insurance?

This will depend on your insurance provider and the specific policy you have taken out. Some companies will raise their premiums for swimming pools and others will not. Likewise, some forms of home insurance will cover your pool and others will not. You should speak to your insurance company before you have the pool built.

What chemicals do I need for my pool?

In general, pools require a number of chemicals to keep their clean and safe to swim in. Compass ceramic pools require fewer due to the impermeable nature of the material our pools are created from. It is also possible to create natural swimming pools that do not require chemicals but use a reed bed and filter system instead. Talk to our team to learn more.

Compass delivered each stage on time and installed the pool quickly and efficiently under the direction of Alex. All team members were knowledgable and professional. Would highly recommend Compass Pools to anyone thinking of getting a pool.

  • Art Deceau Pool Image Dear Alex, Simon, James and the team, We would like to thank you all very much for doing such a great job installing and commissioning our Compass Ceramic pool. Having had a traditional liner pool in the past there is no comparison to the superior quality and design of our new pool. The way in which it was organised and executed was so slick and it was a pleasure to have all of your team here at The Limes. We loved the complete package. The plant room solution is genius and enabled us to press ahead before our pool house was built. We never thought the pool would be up and running this season and are still swimming daily now. The solar cover is a great heat retainer and so easy to use. We love the lounging steps and managed a lounge on them sipping the lovely champagne you kindly gave to us. Having the use of a pool is a key part of our recovery from various medical events and to have it at home means we have no excuse in getting fit again. We are very grateful for the help you have given us to make this happen. We would highly recommend Waterstream to anyone considering a pool. We are so impressed with the whole organisation.
