Why you’ll love it
“When we told our friends and neighbours that we were putting in a pool, the first thing they said was ‘you’ll be sorry!! It’ll cost you a fortune to maintain and take up all your spare time”
We had our Compass Pool installed in September 2008. We did our research before choosing a company and one of the reasons we chose Compass Pools was because of the Vantage pool cleaning system. We’d never heard of such a system before and were intrigued by the concept. The thought of not having to have a creepy crawly style vacuum thingy was very appealing!
We put in a 6.7m Bi-luminite Ceramic Composite pool with a sand filter, self-cleaning chlorinator, swim jet and a Vantage in-floor self-cleaning system. The three pumps sit side by side.
We can honestly say that it was the best decision we could have made to install it. We have the system on a timer so that it turns on at the same time as the pool pump as it is most efficient when they run concurrently.
Our pool floor and walls remain spotless. The nozzles pop up and down and rotate in a sequence pushing all debris either to the drain at the end of the pool or into the skimmer box. The water is constantly circulating which means that the temperature of the water remains even throughout the whole pool (not warm on top and cold at the bottom) I empty the two skimmer baskets once a week.
We have also found that we rarely have to add chemicals. We get the water tested regularly and apart from having to add salt from time to time, we have only had to add small amounts of acid/ buffer or stabiliser about 5 times in 3 years. This is a huge saving and has more than compensated for the initial cost of the system.
We spend our leisure time enjoying the pool, not maintaining it. It is brilliant and we would unreservedly recommend the Vantage system to anyone installing a pool. You won’t regret it.”

Being a builder, did you need to look around for a pool… how did you come to choose a Compass Pool?
“Ted. I have known Ted Martin (owner of Compass Pools Victoria) for years. Ted is great. The pool he had suited me right down to the ground. In fact, I designed the house around the pool.”

“After a year of owning the pool, the in-floor cleaning system couldn’t have made life any easier. It’s just wonderful – you don’t have to touch it.”

“We have had our pool now for just over two years and it has dramatically changed our lifestyle. I must admit that my wife and I were both sceptical about the Vantage system and how well it would clean the pool, particularly as we have a large number of gum trees which over hang the pool area. I can honestly say that in the time we have had the pool, I have never once had to clean it. The Vantage system is outstanding and I would recommend anyone looking at investing in a pool to take advantage of this technology. It truly is worth it.”
