Wright Pools & Spas has had a dominant presence in the lower North Island for more than 40 years. We are the largest and most experienced company in the lower North Island supplying, installing and servicing swimming pools and spas.

Our team prides itself on providing quality spas and swimming pools to suit every budget alongside a range of associated products and services.



From small beginnings, owner Grant Edwards started in the pool and spa industry more than 45 years ago. After overseas industry experience in the US, Canada and UK, he purchased Wright Pools & Spas, Lower Hutt, back in 1992. From there, Grant opened our Wairarapa shop 15 years ago and the business has grown bigger still.

Based from our two stores, we now employ more than 20 staff, many of whom have been with us for a decade or more.

We fully invest in the products we sell, our staff and the community we serve.



With shops in Lower Hutt (Wellington) and Carterton (Wairarapa). We offer a comprehensive service from build, design, supply and servicing of commercial (e.g. residential care facilities, gyms, schools, universities, hotels) pools and spas, as well as those for the domestic market.

Our Lower Hutt showroom boasts one of the largest selection of spas in New Zealand and we have a huge stock of spare parts for all makes and models. In Carterton, we have recently built a brand new display centre featuring a Compass Pools self-cleaning swimming pool and a large Spa Pool and Swim-Spa showroom showcasing three ranges of quality spas: High Country Spas, Sundance Spas, Sapphire Spas. 

On top of this, we have a highly experienced service team and also stock a huge selection of componentry, accessories, chemicals as well as specialist products to prevent and manage everything pool or spa related.



Given we service what we sell, we’re quite particular about the brands we stock. With over 40 years experience in the spa pool industry, we’ve seen how various brands have performed.

Founder Grant Edwards has a long and established career selling and servicing spa pools. Grant was previously one of the largest Hot Spring Spa dealers in Australasia, but chose to represent Sundance Spas instead. Sundance Spas is a sister company to Jacuzzi. We are also a supplier of Sapphire Spas too, another premium brand renowned for design excellence. Most recently we are having manufactured, distributing and selling the exclusive High Country Spas brand which offers fantastic value for money coupled with feature rich and quality componentry.

Wright Pools & Spas is the Lower North Island authorised dealer for Compass Pools, the toughest, most durable and innovative composite swimming pools in the world. Rather important if you live in a shaky earthquake-prone country! You may be interested to know that in the Christchurch earthquakes, of 80 locally installed Compass Pools, just two sustained minor damage. Both were simply lifted out of the ground, repaired and placed back in place once the liquified areas were stabilised. More recently flooding from cyclone Gabrielle in February 2023 wreaked havoc with some pools causing structural pool shell damage and lifting pools from the ground. Already incorporated in all Compass Pools since 2017, a patented hydrostatic valve was developed, tested and perfected and is so sensitive and has such high flow rates that it offers a unique hydrostatic damage warranty. This is a standard inclusion on all Compass Fiberglass Pools.

Given the current climatic instability we are living in, we feel it is more important than ever that if you invest in a capital purchase like a swimming pool or spa pool, you want it to look good and perform now and in years to come. You can be assured that buying from us will satisfy these criteria.



Our main focus in business is to provide top quality products combined with a premium service.

We have a simple philosophy…

Wright Pools & Spas do things the right way (excuse the pun!) first time, even if it takes a little more time. If things go wrong along the way, we fix them – our problem and not yours. We want you as a customer today and in the future and the biggest compliment is to see you return and for you to recommend us.

For those of you looking at spas, we stock three brands of spa pools; Sapphire Spas are 100% Australian designed and manufactured. Sundance Spas, built by the makers Jacuzzi are a premium US brand. High Country Spas are imported by ourselves and distributed nationwide to more than 15 shop locations. All the brands we sell are unsurpassed in functionality, energy efficiency and quality and will give you a lifetime of enjoyment and relaxation.

There are some exciting and innovative ideas out there for those of you who are thinking of refurbishing their pools or building one from scratch.

For those with a busy lifestyle, our spa and pool valets offer unmatched pricing alongside peace of mind for clean, sparkling water all the time. From everyone in our Team, we wish you a warm welcome and if you have any feedback we would like to hear from you.


Panel Member

For founder Grant Edwards, selling pools and spas is more than a job, it’s his passion and vocation. Such is Grant’s commitment to the industry that he’s part of the SPASA panel working with the Government to try and establish better regulations in pool construction.

Currently there are low barriers to entry as anyone can become a pool builder. Not surprising, without regulations and an official training scheme, problems are not uncommon.

The purpose of SPASA is to establish consistent standards and processes, as well as an official training/apprentice scheme to help provide a clear pathway to a series of formal industry specific qualifications.
