I recently had the pleasure having the staff at Banora Pools build my pool, and I must say that Andrew, Ed, Lewis, and Matt were exceptional. They were not only professional, but also very friendly. Andrew, in particular, went above and beyond to answer my numerous questions and was always available whenever I needed assistance. I am extremely satisfied with the end result and would like to express my gratitude to the team. Thank you!

Jason has been fantastic. We have an incredibly difficult block and have always thought putting in a pool would be too hard. It may still be that way but Jason came on site within days and has given us all sorts of options and advice, always being upfront about possible problems and cost. He is thoroughly professional and a really decent guy. Hoping we can follow through and get to build with his company.

After hearing many horror stories about pool companies and how bad a reputation the industry had, we were very wary of finding a company to deliver exactly what we wanted without blowing our budget. Then we met Jason and the team at Luxury Pools and Outdoor living who met all our expectations and more. The project was a seamless operation from the start and all completed well within the time frame, even with COVID and the construction industry temporarily shut down. All the trades contracted under Luxury Pools are all extremely talented at their craft and all round nice guys. Matt the Foreman was so easy to deal with and made the project run smoothly from start to finish, nothing was too hard to modify or too much trouble. I can highly recommend the team at Luxury Pools. They promised us a luxury pool and that’s what they delivered.

We were very happy we contacted Jason from Luxury Pools and Outdoor Living to discuss our plans for our pool project. Jason spent quality time with us to start the process of planning. Jason is very open and easy to chat with and shared his expertise and knowledge on the pool process in a detailed and transparent way. We came away with a clearer vision of the scope involved in the project as well as possibilities of ideas. Jason is very passionate about what he and his team do and we certainly look forward to fulfilling our new pool dream.

We invited three pool companies to quote for a plunge pool in Evans Head. From the outset, Profile Pools had the best customer service and sales information. We are very pleased with the result as we put the finishing touches to the landscaping. Can recommend Profile Pools.

Jill & Rob from the sales team were amazing from start to finish. Our pool was constructed during flood & covid, which created some frustrations. However the end product was more than we could have hoped for. Well done to the team at profile pools. Troy and his onsite team were amazing too.

Icing on the cake! We are very happy with the end result, thanks to Banora Pools! We knew it will be challenging for anyone to build our pool due to the slope of our land. The site also provided some challenges in terms of access. But with careful planning and clever design, Banora Pools was able to deliver a stunning pool that integrates seamlessly with our house and the existing landscape. Andrew and the team at Banora Pools are great to work with. Andrew listens to what you want and makes them happen. The quality of work of the subcontractors are of high standard. In the end, we got a beautiful pool that has added value to our home and ambience to our yard. Well worth the cost. Thank you Banora Pools, we will enjoy this now and for years to come!

We are very happy with our pool. Sally has always responded very quickly to our enquiries and provided us with a lot of information. Dean installed our pool much sooner than we thought would be possible, so we are very happy. There was a problem with ground water which Dean and his team dealt with very swiftly. Great family business, would definitely recommend Evoke Pools.

Why do you need so much information to match me?
Curved Arrow Icon

No two pools are the same, so we need to know a little about you and the location you plan to build in order to help you.

The pool build location

We ask for your address for the following reasons:

  • we want to match you with the best local pool builders
  • your property, pool positioning and soil conditions have a big impact on pricing and vary on every pool
  • pricing varies in different areas.

When you provide your address, we are able to assist you far more effectively and provide you with more accurate information.

Your personal details

Whilst Poolz gives you an instant price estimate, in order to get an accurate quote from a local builder, they need to get in touch with you to arrange a site inspection. Every pool build location is different and there isn’t a single pool builder who will provide an accurate quote without seeing your property.

With your permission, we share the information you’ve provided with the matched pool professionals to help kick-start your project quickly.

The pool details

Pools come in various shapes, sizes, and designs, and the pricing can vary significantly. By understanding your pool preferences and specific requirements, we can match you with builders who specialise in building the type of pool you desire. This ensures that you receive accurate quotes from builders who can bring your vision to life.

All the information we ask from you is necessary and helps to ensure we provide you with the best possible outcome. We don’t ask anything a pool builder won’t ask if you went directly to them. Rest assured that the information you provide is securely handled and used solely for the purpose of delivering the best pool-building experience for you.

Will my personal details be visible to everyone?

No! Rest assured, we prioritise your privacy and the security of your personal information.
