About Us

Hi there,
My name is Grant Vidler, and I am the proud owner of ‘Northern Rivers Pools’. I’d like to take a little of your time to explain about me, our company and how we help families across the Tweed and Northern Rivers achieve their own dream outdoor piece of paradise.

I feel that it’s important for you to know who you are dealing with when making a decision of who to trust to help you achieve your perfect outdoor lifestyle addition to your home or property. There’s a lot to consider… after all, a swimming pool will become a substantial focal point in your backyard, so it’s important to get it right.

To say that I know a bit about pools is a gross understatement. My whole working life has been building, renovating and installing pools. It all started when I left school at the age of 17 and cut my teeth renovating concrete pools for my brother-in-law’s company in Sydney. I spent considerable time specializing in fully tiled swimming pools and within 3 years had obtained my full trade and pool tiling license.

Pool Renovations

About Us Northern Rivers PoolsRenovating pools was an amazing experience when I look back. Many of our customers were wealthy and well-known identities from the North Shore and Northern Beaches. People with a penchant for quality and professionalism certainly instilled in me the high standards I became known for and continue to focus on.

There was a time where my services were in such demand due to my reputation that one customer happily waited 14 months for her pool renovation as she wanted me and nobody else. She knew from her friends that I would leave no stone unturned and deliver her the result that she so dearly was wanting.

As you can no doubt imagine, renovating and particularly tiling pools is very intense physical work. It was certainly rewarding to reach the end of a job and admire the result and celebrate the owner’s plans becoming reality, but after 10 years my body was telling me that it was ready for a change.

I’d made a lot of people happy, gained a great reputation and become noticed by many of the industry movers and shakers. It was early 2003 and I received a phone call from the owner of Leisure Pools and was asked to come and have a chat with him at their head office on the Gold Coast. He told me he was looking for a smart experienced operator to take on the franchise for the Hills District of Sydney.

Northern Rivers Pools  I did a lot of research into the company. I spoke with previous customers, other swimming pool dealers and closely examined their production process,    quality and systems. They surprised me with their professionalism and high standards. Not only did I discover their shells were all top notch and  manufactured on the Gold Coast, but their choice of filtration equipment was the best available, along with all the extra’s they stocked and  recommended.

I took on the Hills District dealership in April 2003 and quickly became one of Leisure Pools most reputable installers. It was a natural progression for me, with all the experience I had built up working with concrete pools and seeing first hand the pitfalls that many unsuspecting owners don’t anticipate. I became the go to guy when people were weighing up whether to choose a concrete pool or a fiberglass pool.

We built up the Hills District dealership until mid 2006. At that time we decided that with two young boys under 2 and a half, it was time to give them a better lifestyle outside of Sydney. We had some friends that had moved to Murwillumbah and were telling us how idyllic the lifestyle was up there for families. We visited them a couple of times and fell in love with the area.

It was by pure luck that the Leisure Pools dealership for the Tweed Shire and Northern Rivers NSW was available and the owner of Leisure Pools was quite excited that I would be the operator to look after such a growing area.

Pools for the Northern RiversI must say, since we arrived up here we haven’t looked back. The boys love it and have made lots of friends, and business has treated me well in the district.

Award winning business – Northern Rivers Pools

Since being here, we have been awarded Leisure Pools’ Dealer of the Year 2 years running in 2007 & 2008, and received Awards of Excellence April, June & September 2010.

We have also become active supporters of the local community sponsoring the Muwillumbah Touch Football & Murwillumbah Football Clubs over the years.

Since 2003 I have sold and personally installed over 200 Leisure Pools and have experienced all types of challenges that can occur. I have also never had any formal complaints, warranty or insurance claims in this time, which I am immensely proud of. It’s because of all my experiences that I decided to put together this pack “The Official Swimming Pool Buyers Guide – How To Confidently Plan Your New Swimming Pool And Avoid The 7 Common Big Costly Mistakes That Many Swimming Pool Builders Don’t Want You To Know About” to give back and educate folk just like you about the considerations you need to be aware of when planning your perfect outdoors lifestyle addition.


I look forward to assisting you on this journey and perhaps working with you one on one to achieve your dream. So please, take a few minutes to go through this package thoroughly. You’ll find it informative, interesting and hopefully “possibility expanding” as you begin or continue your journey toward creating your dream outdoor piece of paradise.
