Summer is coming and temperatures are rising - meaning it's time to get your pool in ship shape condition so it can be enjoyed by the whole family. It's critical too, to ensure all government regulations and safety conditions are followed throughout this process.

That's where Pacific Pools comes in - whether you are after an entirely new pool or need to upgrade or renovate your existing one, they have the knowledge to assist you. Pacific Pools is a member of the Australian Swimming Pool and Spa Alliance, is fully licensed and fulfils all governing body insurance requirements.

The business services the Blue Mountains and the Greater Sydney area, including the Macarthur region and Southern Highlands. After spending years 'in the trenches' learning the trade and becoming a fully licensed builder, Bruce Read founded Pacific Pools in February 1993, with a passion for constructing, renovating and building concrete pools.

Thirty years later Bruce is still at the helm and takes pride in Pacific Pools' ability to offer personalised service. As the company's licensed builder he is hands-on during construction, from marking the pool out on the ground for excavation through to its final vacuum before handover to the client.

"This allows customers to feel relaxed and confident that there is a licensed builder on-site, not simply a supervisor," Bruce said. "We have worked in the most normal of backyards up to the most challenging hillside locations, and across to places where we have to hold the sea back while we build."

Pacific Pools' experience is very much a part of its service. "My son is now a licensed builder and working for the company as well, so if I can't be on site I can remain confident that Pacific is in great hands," Bruce said. "Whether it's a new pool or a renovation to your existing pool, we will be with you every step of the process."

The team can help you design and create a beautiful pool to suit your surround and space, be it something ultra-formal, a natural free-form design, a lap pool for exercise, or a plunge pool for the kids.

In terms of renovations, if your old pool is looking a bit tired or dated, Pacific Pools can give it the kiss of life. It may be as simple as upgrading filtration or adding gas or solar heating, or it may require a full makeover including new coping, pool relining, adding a spa or water feature, or even changing the pool's shape.

And after handover of your Pacific pool you can talk to them about setting up an ongoing pool maintenance program, with people you already know and trust. In these times Pacific Pools' staff and tradies exercise all necessary social distancing practices, wear protective clothing and as all work is outside, this helps mitigate COVID-19 risk to customers.
