At Master Pools, we are members of SPASA, but what does this mean and why should you choose a SPASA member to build your pool?
The prospect of installing a new pool or spa in your home can be very exciting, and if everything goes according to plan you will end up with a beautiful new pool that looks fantastic in your backyard. However, if you hire an inexperienced or under qualified pool builder, your dream pool could soon turn into a nightmare. That’s why you should choose a SPASA member to install your pool.
Let’s start with what SPASA is…
What is SPASA?
SPASA– The Swimming Pool and Spa Association Australia is the governing body for the pool industry. SPASA builders are the industry professionals, so when you are choosing your concrete or fibreglass pool builder, you have peace of mind knowing that their service will be supported by a strict Code of Ethics and a commitment to deliver their goods and services at an industry standard.
Only SPASA pool builder members can issue you with a SPASA Contract, which is a building contract that complies with all the relevant state and federal legislation and therefore provides you with consumer protection when having your pool installed. Having the assurance of your SPASA contract means that you don’t have to worry about things going wrong during the building of your pool, and can also save you a lot of headaches in terms of legislation.
Reason 1 – SPASA members must demonstrate their skills
For a pool builder to become a member of SPASA, they must demonstrate a history of successful, ethical and knowledgeable trading to ensure that their work is of the highest standard. This means that only the best in the business hold a membership- SPASA pool builders boast the highest levels of experience, reputation and professionalism in the industry.
Reason 2 – Access to the latest regulations and standards
All members have access to the latest technical standards and consumer information regarding your pool build, meaning that it will all line up with legal requirements and your pool will be built safely. On top of this, all relevant consumer information will be provided to you so you know exactly how your pool is installed and how it functions.
Reason 3 – SPASA members are bound by ethics
All SPASA members are bound by the Association’s code of ethics, which you can find here. This code of ethics ensures that all pool construction is conducted in a safe, ethical and respectful manner. It also ensures that a high standard of workmanship is present within the construction team so you know that your pool is being built professionally. Installing a pool is a big purchase and can potentially cost a lot of money, so put your money in the hands of a pool builder who you know you can trust.
Reason 4 – SPASA members care about their customer service
Another reason to choose a SPASA member to install your pool is that they voluntarily choose to become a member, as they are interested in advancing the swimming pool and spa industry. Members are on the front line of development and innovation, and SPASA prides itself on evolving the industry as a whole, providing a supportive culture for pool builders to do their best work. Look out for the SPASA logo when you’re seeking out someone to build your new pool or spa. If the business displays the logo, it means that they are fully supported by the association and therefore will be able to provide you with a premium service.
Reason 5 – SPASA members can exhibit in pool shows
SPASA encourages consumers to purchase from SPASA members, and to support this they have National Awards and Consumer Expos. Look out for the next SPASA Victoria show in Melbourne to get the chance to see the latest technology in backyard pools and spas, find out more about the benefits of swimming, compare the latest range of swimming pools, get expert advice and the best deals on pools and pool equipment to help create your dream backyard.
These shows can give you a great idea of the quality and standard of work that their members will carry out on your new pool build. It can be a great opportunity to discover first hand the quality of craftsmanship and service of SPASA members, and to ask any questions you may have about pool and spa installation. Here you can actually meet the experts and see the types of installation they can offer to suit your individual needs.
As a consumer, you want the best quality and care when it comes to building your pool, so why choose anyone but a SPASA member?
