Shipping Container Pools are suddenly di rigueur in Australia, with everyone wanting to know more about them! What do they look like? How much do they cost? How big are they? How can I have one!
Deciding on an above ground container pool is the best decision you can make, as it will save a whole lot of time (and money!) because your new above ground container pool will be delivered as a complete product, with little more to do than filling it up with water and connecting the pump to the mains. No having to suffer through weeks or months where your backyard looks like a construction site! Just pick a spot for the container pool and voila, the job is done! And that’s where an amazing shipping container pool comes in!
Being one of Australia’s leading shipping container manufacturers, we understand about how exciting the though of owning a shipping container pool can be. Because they’re so much cheaper than an in-ground pool, are made entirely of quality Aussie steel, and their robust assembly creates a much stronger and durable structure than the typical above ground pools (which often have a much shorter ‘shelf life’), which is perfect for the harsh Australian environment we live in.
Our container pools have a beautiful deck with both stairs and a child safety door. The robust filtration system is housed underneath the deck and is easily accessible through the original shipping container door (which is lockable).
The fiberglass pool within the container has a wonderful ergonomic design with wide steps and comfy benches, and boasts a nifty child safety ledge around the perimeter which starts from the deck and runs the full length of the shipping container. So both you and the little ones can safely enjoy a swim on a hot summer’s day.
With our shipping container pools, the first and foremost concern is always pool safety. After entering through the child-safety door you walk up the beautifully constructed wooden stairs to a landing area that allows for easy access into the container swimming pool itself.
For convenience, the container pool’s filtration system lives below the stairs and deck with some extra storage space as shown below. So what’s not to love, right!
The exterior of a container pool is super strong Australian steel. And you wouldn’t it any other way, as this is the part that supports everything. But the interior of course has to add that touch of luxury. And that’s why the interiors of container pools are built with super durable fiberglass.
Here are a few facts that you probably don’t know about fibreglass pools (but are worth knowing!).
Fibreglass container swimming pools never have to be drained for acid washing, remarciting, re-plastering or painting. And they have a smooth, non-porous surface which means it doesn’t harbour resident algae, and makes cleaning walls 90% easier (therefore requiring less chemicals and bringing down your on-going cleaning costs).
Shipping Containers Direct only use the best gelcoats to give you the most visually appealing above ground pool on the market. The materials we use have all been tested to ensure they can handle Australia’s notoriously hot sun, and also to resist the harsh effects of any chemical corrosion. This results in an above ground pool that will retain the vibrant aquatic colour.
Shipping Containers Direct use super durable ModWood for our container pool decking, as its resistant to the toughest weather conditions. Something that makes it a great, low maintenance alternative to conventional timber. Which means you’ll save significant time and money with the pool’s up-keep.
Not that you need to worry yourself too much about that, given our Container Pools come with a 10 year warranty, and the fibreglass work itself is backed by a 25 year structural warranty!
