Back in the day it was considered a luxury to have a swimming pool at home, it was something that added value to a home and a step up the social ladder. Nowadays, as property booms keep raging in Australian capital cities, and million dollar homes seem to be the norm, a swimming pool at home is becoming more commonplace.
The trend in property now is to build big custom feature swimming pools which, according to Australian Spas and Pools (ASAP) cost at the high end, $85-100K, as well as thousands in maintenance costs every year. According to property publishers Domain, “Unlike the home cinema or temperature-controlled cellar, the pool is on display year-round, a lifestyle feature that speaks to the Aussie love of the great outdoors”.
Money continues to pour into property. According to ASAP, there is a trend towards architectural pool designs, fire pits & fountains as well as semi submerged tanning chairs. On the other hand, Pool and Spa review have seen a trend developing for simple elegant shapes and infinity pools which capture the natural landscapes of the area.
As Peter Glass, of Peter Glass & Associates, Landscape Architects and Pool Specialists puts it when interviewed by Domain, “We’re able to see just how beneficial beautiful pools and landscapes are to prestige properties because often when they come up for sale, it’s the photo of the pool that is the hero shot,” (Domain 2016).
One thing is for certain, the pool industry is going from strength to strength. Research firm IBISWorld had the industry valued at $658 million in 2017 and Australia boasts 1.2 million household swimming pools; the world’s highest per capita rate of pool ownership. These trends are seeing poolcare companies like Jim’s Pool Care benefit. Growing demand is being generated by homeowners across the country who want to maintain their dream pools and make them a showpiece for family entertaining.
