We don’t skimp on the quality of our materials or methods. We manufacture our swimming pools in Perth and across Australia using superior grade eco-friendly fiberglass and gelcoats. With Freedom, you’re guaranteed to receive the best value for money with our fiberglass pool prices.

New Zealand standards guarantee

All of our fiberglass pools are manufactured to meet New Zealand Standards. We believe this is how all swimming pool companies should operate. Our construction methods are also certified by Lloyd’s of London – this means quality you can rely on.

Fade resistant pools

When choosing a swimming pool in Perth or anywhere else in Australia, the last thing you want is the colour to fade. Our fiberglass pools are finished with fade resistant MarbleTechTM. This innovative marine gelcoat combines the luxury look of marble with long-lasting toughness.

Proudly made in Australia

Our Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Queensland and Perth swimming pools are locally manufactured at our three factories. At Freedom, we understand the harsh Australian climate which is why we craft our pools with the versatility and durability to sustain this.


Absolutely thrilled with our pool from Freedom Pools. Mat, James, and their team led the project seamlessly from beginning to end. They had a vision of our ideal pool and layout, and they definitely made it a reality., if not better!! They organised the whole project, including the fencing and landscaping. We can’t thank them enough! They delivered on time and on budget! Kudos to the Team!!

Our experience with Freedom Pools South Island was extremely positive, and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking at putting in their own pool. We ended up with a high-quality pool and equipment and were extremely happy with their eye for detail. They guided us through the process and made great informative suggestions for us to get the best result on choosing options that suited our needs. We had a couple of unexpected costs at the beginning, that were our fault for not checking some things properly (services requiring relocation and engineering reports), but Mat and James at Freedom helped us deal with these at a very reasonable price and took the stress away. Their invoice had no hidden costs, so there were no nasty surprises, as I had read on other reviews for different companies who hadn’t disclosed additional services. In fact, we came under their invoice, and they reimbursed us the difference. Communication was great with them, they always responded to our calls, and nothing was ever a hassle. Follow up service afterwards has been fantastic too. Great bunch of guys to deal with, and even though they’re relatively "newish" in the industry, they know exactly what they’re doing and have a supportive experienced crew. I would definitely use them again and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to my friends and family.

Freedom Pools SI installed an 8m x 4m pool at our Christchurch property.
Mat and James are very professional and extremely helpful. Nothing was too much bother. They have done an excellent job and we could not be more pleased.
We previously had a pool which was a casualty of the Christchurch earthquakes so we were looking for a company to help us replace what we had.
They helped with everything from plans through to council consent and even used our existing pool pump and filter in order to save us a money.
The other pool company we contacted were not interested in using our existing equipment.
They have done an excellent job and transformed our property. We now have a pool far better than we had previously.
We would highly recommend Freedom Pools SI to anyone looking to install a pool.
