Frequently Asked Questions

Swimming pool installation will depend on the type of pool you choose. For example, a concrete swimming pool typically takes the longest to install, particularly when significant site preparation is required. A fibreglass pool will take less time as the shell has been pre-moulded. In contrast, a concrete Plungie® pool comes pre-made and can be installed in a matter of days, not months (yes, really!).
In most cases, yes. Whether working with retaining walls or creating above-ground or semi-recessed solutions, even the trickiest block of land can typically support a swimming pool. As pool builders and proud suppliers of award-winning Plungie® pools, we can help you design a new concrete or fibreglass pool no matter what your land looks like.
Yes. By law, your swimming pool must be registered with your relevant council. At Brizscapes, we understand you’ve got better things to do than deal with paperwork and red tape. That’s why we help you secure building approval/certification from your local council so you can focus on enjoying your new pool and not stressing over endless emails and phone calls.
Yes. Pool fencing laws from 1991 require all pools to have pool fences or barriers installed. All pool fences and barriers must comply with Queensland Development Code MP 3.4—Swimming pool barriers. As experts in striking pool surrounds, chat to a member of the Brizscapes team about creating eye-catching pool areas that incorporate lighting, water features, trees and plants, decking and more.
This depends on the type of swimming pool you select. On average, an in-ground fibreglass or concrete swimming pool costs between $35,000 to $70,000 for full installation. This figure varies based on the complexity of the install, access to your Queensland property, soil type and excavation required. In contrast, a Plungie® pool can cost less than $20,000 while still delivering the spacious, eye-catching and safe pool you’ve been dreaming of.
Once your pool has been installed, it’s tough (and costly) to change it, so it’s important you choose the material that’s right for you. When comparing fibreglass and concrete, consider the price, engineering, durability, feel and personalisation options to help you make the right choice. If you’re unsure, reach out and chat with a member of our team to discuss your options.
Plungie® pools are precast concrete shells that deliver, fast, easy and affordable swimming pool installation across Australia. Instead of spending time and money on extensive earthworks, Plungie® pools require nothing but a pre-engineered concrete slab footing. Your new pool is dropped in place via a crane to transform your yard in a matter of days, not months. Your Plungie® pool can be installed above ground, in-ground, semi-recessed or even on a rooftop!

Choosing a pool builder in Brisbane requires more than searching for the lowest prices. A pool is a significant investment and the wrong company can leave you with a sub-par product, or worse, damage to your property that requires expensive repairs. To select the right pool builders, look for:

  • References and testimonials
  • Full licence and insurance coverage
  • 100% transparent quotes and prices
  • Completed project galleries
  • Expertise with your preferred pool type
