Crystal Pools marks 60 years of swimming pool innovation

Crystal Pools marks 60 years of swimming pool innovation
August 9, 2017

Leading commercial and domestic swimming pool pioneer Crystal Pools is celebrating its diamond anniversary in 2017.

Australia’s longest operating pool company, since 1957 Crystal Pools have built over 20,000 residential and 1,000 commercial pools, winning over 220 major state, national and international awards.

Over the decades the quality of their work has seen them develop their commercial installations, from early commercial projects including Fairfield District Hospital, Deakin Olympic Centre and the Macquarie Olympic Centre in the ACT and the Manly Olympic Centre.

More recent projects include as the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre - venue for the 2018 Commonwealth Games, the Alice Springs Aquatic and Leisure Centre, the SCG Trust members pools and installations for Virgin Active Health Clubs.

Applying the same exacting engineering standards on their residential pools as they do for FINA standard Olympic Pools, Crystal Pools have also created pools for many Sydney’s landmark properties like Admiralty House at Kirribilli, which boasts undoubtedly one of the best views in Sydney and is still in regular use today.

Others include Wally ‘Toyota’ Truscott’s harbourside mansion, as well as pools for celebrities including Dame Joan Sutherland and Graham Kennedy. 

As pioneers of the Australian swimming pool industry, Crystal Pools have witnessed many changes during the last 60 years. In the early days spray and ready-mix concrete were yet to become reality and plans were drawn long-hand in duplicate. Contemporary features such as invisible edging and glass blade edging were yet to appear.

Commenting on the current market, Crystal Pools Sales and Marketing Manager Andrew Rothery explains “homeowners today are looking at automation and environmental solutions.

“The interest in smart technologies, that allow you to completely control pool management via smart phones, has increased 10-fold in the past five years.”
