Shane and the team at Rainwise were fantastic to deal with for the purchase and installation of our pool, the whole process was seamless and stress free. We had to reschedule our installation date on mutiple occassions due to delays with the house build, however this never posed a problem. Their trades were great, friendly, and always arriving on time. It was evident that they took pride in their work, ensuring a quality outcome. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rainwise to anyone if you're in the market for a pool!

The team from Momentum pools did a fantastic job with our pool and spa. we are extremely happy with the outcome of the project. Momentum pools certainly lived up to the recommendations we received from other customers of theirs. They stuck to their quote and even did additional work not included in the original scope of work without charge. We were kept in the loop throughout the project and any questions were promptly answered. It really was a pleasure to deal with Momentum Pools.

I highly recommend Dominic Schuiling & his team from Momentum Pools, from early stages of the design, quotation right through to construction & handover they have exceeded our requirements and expectations. From working with Lee in the early stages of excavation, Tom who puts in (going above and beyond, outside work hours) along with all the other various contractors, right through to Kelly in the office processing the paperwork and supporting my queries and questions. Momentums attention to detail and quality is second to none, all finishes and workmanship is impeccable and impressive. The project was a massive undertaking, with other elements and the team worked with us to complete within a short period of time. Extremely professional company and no task that you ask of them was too difficult or challenging. Momentum Pools have created a space and lifestyle that will create many family memories for years to come. We love our pool and thank you Momentum, Regards Joe, Kendall and Family

Thanks Compass Pools Melbourne and their team members Amy Bronwyn Daniel Paul and Xavier. From concept to final inspection the staff were patient, helpful, knowledgeable and that resulted in a great outcome for my family because we have never had a pool before. The decision to install the inbuilt cleaning has been a very sensible decision because the pool has been minimal maintenance for my family. Highly recommend Compass Pools as as a full start to finish service provider.

Choosing Striking Pools to construct our pool was the best decision we made. From the first meeting to handover, Chris and Liam have been fantastic to deal with. Our pool was not easy, but they took on the challenge and delivered a stunning pool with a huge wow factor! The attention to detail, communication and service was outstanding. We used Landart for the landscaping which meant that all works were coordinated and seamless. Huge thanks to Jack and his team, rail, hail or shine, they were on site. Highly recommended Striking Pools to deliver your dream pool. Thanks guys.

Rainwise were sooo accomodating and responsive. I needed a pool installed in a matter of weeks (due to access constraints) and they made it work even with a small backyard. The team were great from the get go and even when there was a slight hiccup they worked to find a solution to ensure I was still happy. Overall Im soo happy with the way it has turned out! Can’t wait to jump in and start using it once the weather starts to warm up. Thank you soo much

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.
