What makes a Stern’s pool the best your money can buy?

Unlike many competitors, Stern’s pools are made right here in Australia. They’re the only manufacturer to use the thickest, highest quality, galvanised, BlueScope steel.

Their pools are based on modular designs. This means you can choose a shape that fits the style of your home and a size that will fit the space in your garden.

Easy Installation
A Stern’s pool is so easy to install that it’s often done in one day.

Minimal Maintenance 
Stern’s pools and equipment are designed to keep maintenance to an absolute minimum so you can spend as much of your time enjoying your pool.

The range of pools will enable you to achieve the look and feel of a concrete or fibreglass pool but at a fraction of the cost.

Fifty years of experience has taught Stern’s Pools how to produce pools of the highest quality and durability, and because of that, there is the confidence to issue a pro-rata up to a 15 year warranty.

The different of Modular Pools

What is exactly is a modular pool?

‘Modular’ is a technical term for what has often been called an ‘above-ground’ pool. But, these days there’s a great deal more to it than that.

Stern’s modular pools use a range of panels and components that can be configured to create pools of different sizes, shapes and depths.

This makes them extremely versatile, affordable and both quick and easy to install.

The range extends from the simple to the sublime. Whatever your budget, whatever space is available, you’ll find there’s a Stern’s pool that is right for you.
