Our experience and our expertise can’t be beaten

We pride ourselves in providing quality spas and swimming pools to suit every budget alongside a range of associated products and services.

With shops in Lower Hutt (Wellington), Carterton (Wairarapa) and Paraparaumu (Kapiti), 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.
