We build and design beautiful swimming pools on the Gold Coast that will excite your family, and enhance your lifestyle


Designing a Pool

Nothing says Australian summer like a backyard pool, and nothing beats those days when the whole family is home, the BBQ is on, and the refreshing pool water is calling your name. 

Every home is different, and we design every pool with that in mind. Considering the shape and finish just scratches the surface of everything that needs to be assessed when designing a pool. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes before the pool goes in the ground, and we pride ourselves on working closely with our clients to design and build a pool they’re happy with. 

When designing a pool, Our pool design Gold Coast experts consider the following: 

  • Soil Conditions
  • Pool Maintenance
  • Land Surveying
  • Pool Placement
  • A Style That Suits You
  • Dimensions
  • Pool Entry & Exit
  • Pool Add-ons
  • Tiling & Paving

Our experienced team can help you go over all your pool options and features to design and construct your dream pool.


Pool Design Process

Designing a pool is just as fun as enjoying it once it’s finished. Though there are several tried and true pool designs, our experienced team can work with you to design a unique and individual custom concept and bring your idea to life.

When designing a custom pool, we consider your property, how you use your outdoor or indoor space, how the pool can best integrate with your home and landscape and often the most important thing, budget. The Aqua Living Pools design process is a simple seven-step method. Once your pool is designed we can then head into the pool construction phase.

Step 1 - Council-Approved Plans
Clear building plans and designs to submit to your local council to review.
Step 2 - Soil Testing
A soil test can determine the soil composition in your backyard, including salts, organics, fill, clay, sand, gravel and silt. A builder will require a soil report to determine if there will be any construction issues.
Step 3 - Engineering
The structural engineering step will consider a range of factors ensuring that the soil conditions and the loading of the swimming pool are applied to the structure.
Step 4 - Certification
A certification that proves your pool's safety and compliance. Essential to have if you sell your home.
Step 5 - Council Approval
Subsequent development approval is required for a new swimming pool, spa pool and safety fencing.
Step 6 - Peering
STEP 7 - Micro Digs
The experience and technical knowledge to begin excavation for your pool.
