The secret to the sucess and durability of
Compass Pools is its patented ceramic composite design
In the early 90’s the Compass Pools research and development team set about finding new ways to make a pool that was so tough and reliable that they could offer customers peace of mind with an extended structural guarantee and enhanced interior surface guarantee.
It was widely accepted that the proper use of vinyl ester resin in the manufacturing process would greatly improve a pool shell’s inherent water resistance.
That’s because vinyl ester resin is 50 times less susceptible to hydrolysis by water than polyester resin (the other main resin type typically used in fibreglass pool construction).
However, Compass Pools decided that it was important to look beyond industry standards. We were seeking a new method that allowed us to manufacture a fibreglass composite pool for our customers that was designed to last longer.
A note from
Compass pools Christchurch
There were nearly 80 pools installed within the Canterbury earthquake area and there was no damage to either the pools or the concrete bond beam from the September 2010 quake.
After the much more devastating February 2011 quake, there was only one pool that needed replacing (and to put that into context everything else around it was devastated too).
And only one other pool needed minor repairs. Many customers who unfortunately suffered damage to their homes and property did not have any damage to their Compass Pool.
Some may call it a twist of fate that our pools fared so well during the quakes, but when so many pools have been severely damaged around them, we say it is no coincidence at all!
By no means are we saying that our pools are indestructible but we are confidently saying that they have performed extremely well in the recent earthquakes.
