Above Ground Pools

What is an Above Ground Pool? 

As the name suggests, above ground pools sit at ground level and are often the most affordable to install, because they require little more than a flat space to sit on. 

How long do above ground swimming pools last?

The lifespan of an above-ground pool can vary depending on several factors, including the quality of the pool materials, pool chemicals, the level of maintenance and care, and the environmental conditions in which the pool is installed. On average, a well-maintained above-ground pool can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years. All Sterns pools come with a 10 year limited warranty.

Why Install an Above Ground Pool? 

There are various reasons a person may choose an above ground pool installation:

Cost effective 

When it comes to their costs, these provide the cheapest alternative to fully customised and inground pools. Prices may vary depending on the type of pool chosen and the size, ranging from our cheapest model, Mission Beach, at $3000 to our most expensive, the Whitsunday at $4500.


Being modular in design, above ground pools add a degree of flexibility not found with in-ground pools. Instead of having to customise a shape, above ground pools (also known as modular pools) are built from pre-made casts. This means they can be configured to create pools of different sizes, shapes and depths with less hassle and less time. Whatever your budget, and whatever the space, you'll be able to find a pool to suit.

Ease of portability

Being easily transportable, means you get to change the location of your above ground swimming pool anywhere in Australia from your backyard to your front yard or anywhere interstate. Their beauty of modular pools is truly in their portability!

Range of shapes

Above ground pool designs carry a range of predetermined shapes and sizes, which means that you can find the perfect match for your backyard and at a budget to suit. Being precast in nature, means that you can have an above ground pool set up in your backyard with less hassle and less time.

Australian Made

Having an Australian-made above ground pool certainly helps when it comes to withstanding the elements of the harsh Australian sun. As a result, our range of Whitsunday pools are fully UV treated for the demands of the Australian climate. This is   achieved by replacing traditional metallic components with resin parts and adding extra protection to any non-replaceable metallic components.

Fast Turnaround

Installation of above ground pools is quick, convenient and easy and can start as soon as council approval is given. This can take anywhere between 48 and 72 hours depending on your back yard and any pre-preparation needed for the levelling of the ground.
