Pioneers of the Australian Pool Industry
Recognised as Australia’s most experienced pool construction company, we are master pool designer and builders across both domestic and commercial markets. From inner-city plunge pools to the largest aquatic centres, such as the landmark Commonwealth Games complex on the Gold Coast, Crystal Pools is the choice because we still build with uncompromising quality. Our pools endure the decades, not years.
Standing the test of time
Akin to its expertly-engineered pools, the company’s strength stems from its foundations. With an unwavering focus on quality, professionalism and absolute integrity, the reasons for Crystal Pools’ success are crystal clear. Founded by the legendary Les Denton in 1957, Crystal Pools is known as the pioneer of the Australian Swimming Pool Industry. Crystal Pools made a big splash on the commercial scene when we were awarded the contract to develop the second stage of the Parramatta Aquatic Centre in 1959. This second stage incorporated two recreational swimming pools and children’s wading pool.
Testament to our exceptional work, Crystal Pools was invited to completely redevelop Parramatta Aquatic Centre in 2008. While the original 50m pool (the stage one pool we weren’t involved in) had to be demolished and re-built, the pools built by Crystal Pools in 1959 required only cosmetic refurbishment.
The company’s success on the 1959 Parramatta Aquatic Centre project was soon followed in that decade by other commercial projects throughout New South Wales and the ACT.
Our early landmark projects included;
- Fairfield District Hospital (1964),
- Trundle Municipal Pool (1965),
- Tullamore Municipal Pool (1965),
- Deakin Olympic Centre – ACT (1966),
- Glenfield Special School (1968),
- St Joseph’s Hospital Auburn (1968),
- Macquarie Olympic Centre – ACT (1969)
- and Admiralty House Kirribilli (1969).
