Questions on Sterns Above Ground Pools

In this article, we answer a few of the commonly asked questions in regard to Sterns's above-ground pools.

What is a modular Pool?

A modular pool is not just another type of swimming pool; it's a game-changer for homeowners. The brilliance of modular pools lies in their flexibility, affordability, and rapid installation. If you’re struggling with sloped terrain or other logistical issues, modular pools like those offered by Stern’s Pools make it possible to install a pool in your backyard without a fuss.

Engineered for maximum strength, these pools aren't just robust but also versatile. Stern's pools can be adapted to fit in-ground, above-ground, and semi-in-ground installations. A popular choice among customers is the braceless pool design, which when installed in-ground, mimics the luxurious appearance of concrete pools at a fraction of the cost. Imagine diving into your very own pool just a day after the arrival of the installation team—this is the convenience and simplicity that Stern's modular pools bring to the table.

What is the Difference Between a Modular Pool and an Above-Ground Pool?

Though both types of pools may initially seem similar, modular pools offer something that traditional above-ground pools cannot: complete adaptability. You can embed them in the earth to align with existing deck levels or door heights. This flexibility makes modular pools the go-to solution when you’re faced with the challenge of an uneven or inclined yard, without compromising on aesthetics or functionality.

What is the Difference Between a Modular Pool and an In-Ground Pool?

Here's a quick rundown to help you decide what suits your needs:

  1. Customization: While concrete in-ground pools offer unlimited customization, their installation is both time-consuming and costly. Modular pools, on the other hand, offer various preset shapes but slash installation time and costs significantly.

  2. Durability: Both types of pools are durable, but modular pools offer a 10-20 year lifespan with appropriate maintenance, making them an excellent long-term investment.

  3. Speed of Installation: This is where modular pools have a clear edge. A professionally installed modular pool can be ready in as little as one day, depending on various factors like weather and site conditions.

How Long Do Modular Pools Last?

The lifespan of Stern's Pools isn’t just commendable; it’s guaranteed. All Stern’s Pools come with a minimum 10-year warranty. With consistent maintenance, your pool could very well last for 20 years, offering you decades of splash-filled memories.

How Much Do Modular Pools Cost?

One of the most appealing aspects of modular pools is their affordability. The cost depends on whether you opt for a DIY kit or a full installation package. A DIY kit could cost you as low as $3,000, while a full installation project could bring you closer to $10,000. This price range offers flexibility for various budgets without compromising on quality.

What Are Sterns Pools Made Of?

When it comes to material quality, Stern's Pools lead the way. Built from the thickest Galvanised Steel available on the market, these pools promise unparalleled durability. The walls are fabricated from BlueScope Flexographic material, known for its exceptional strength and resilience.

Where Are Stern's Pools Made?

Proudly Australian Made, all the components of Stern’s Pools are manufactured in their factory in Lurnea, NSW. This ensures quality control and contributes to the local economy, making each pool a true-blue Australian product.

How to Determine Installation Feasibility?

Before diving into your pool dreams, consider the following:

  1. Space and Accessibility: Make sure your property has enough room for the pool, and check whether excavation is required.
  2. Council Approval: Remember that council approval is a prerequisite for new pool installations in Australia.

Pool Lighting and Accessories

Adding a pool light to your Stern's Pool is not just possible, but highly recommended. It enhances the aesthetic appeal and extends the hours you can safely enjoy your pool.

Shapes and Liners

Whether you fancy a round, oval, rectangular, keyhole, or raindrop-shaped pool, Stern’s Pools has got you covered. Lined with top-quality, coloured PVC, your pool will not only look inviting but also stand the test of time.

Color Options

Choose from a myriad of liner colors like Blue pattern, Dark Blue, Green, Pale Blue, and Water Pattern to tailor your pool’s look to your preference.

Installation Timeframe

Typically, installation takes just a day or two, subject to weather, pool size, and site conditions. Imagine going from a barren backyard to a family fun zone in just 48 hours!


Rest easy knowing that your investment is secure. Sterns Pools come with a minimum 10-year warranty, safeguarding your peace of mind for the years to come.
