Recent Work

Here’s what a few of Northern Rivers Pools recent customers had to say after working with us…

Tim Cleary from Pottsville

thumb_1336187324_clearyThank you Grant for such a good job !

“From the moment we found Leisure Pools on the internet it was all really quick and easy. We got Grant over to assess the backyard to make sure that a pool would fit and we chose the Harmony, a beautiful pool. We gave him a deadline of 3 weeks from the time we signed the contract and in record time he accomplished it, which was amazing. We couldn’t be happier. We use our pool all the time and the kids love it. We’ve had it in for two years now and it’s been hassle free. The Harmony is great for kids because it has a step along the edge. Our kids learned to swim in our pool, they waded along the side until they were confident to swim. As far as the installation went, the team of workers Grant had were great guys, they did the job really quickly and it was all done with no problems. I couldn’t be happier with Leisure Pools.”

“exceeded our expectations”

“We chose Northern Rivers Pools because Grant offered us so much personal attention and was the actual hands on manager of the project. His consideration of our needs and environment, his honesty, commitment to promises & timely follow-up exceeded our expectations. Our new pool has been great for entertaining friends and given us less need to travel to swim, exercise or cool down on a hot day. We honestly cannot think of any aspect of our experience that could have been any better”




“Grant and Diana from Northern Rivers Pools provided us with a really wonderful pool. From the initial consultation with Grant, through to the choice of pump and pool equipment and the installation of the actual fiberglass shell, the service was speedy and excellent. Grant and his team were a joy to have around when the pool was going in. The whole experience was fun, friendly and most importantly, professional. Diana’s prompt and efficient office skills made all the paperwork clear and comprehensive and her understanding of the DA plans and the requirements for Council was a great help. We have had absolutely no regrets since having our pool installed. It is a high quality pool that looks amazing and functions beautifully. Thanks Grant and Diana from Northern Rivers Pools. You made the process of purchasing and getting a backyard pool a joy!“

“Our strong relationship with Grant was developed from the first phone call”

“We did lots of research online before we called Grant to give us a quote. Our strong relationship with Grant was developed from the first phone call. Information was sent quickly, value was great & timing worked well for us. Any issues we had were minor compared to the joy of jumping into a beautiful pool. Even in winter it’s great to have water views”



thumb_1336187954_donohoe  “…EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS”

“We chose Northern Rivers Pools because the person doing the ‘quoting’ was also to be the person installing the pool. All potential problems were addressed, in     fact others who quoted showed little interest or knowledge. Once the weather allowed, the speed with which the pool site was excavated and the pool installed   exceeded our expectations. The pool enhances the look of our property and gives it a nice feeling. We’re looking forward to summer to enjoy swimming in it.

“you provided the best service”
“Grant, you provided the best service to us during the quoting process. You were easy to talk to, you gave us honest and reliable advice and construction ran smoothly, on time and on budget. Our new pool has increased the value of our property and given an overall improved outlook of our house and yard. I would call you again if I was to build a pool at my next house”



Terry Hannam from Upper Crystal Creek 




“The final product, handover and after sales assistance has been exceptional”

“We researched fibreglass pools extensively and having visited Leisure Pools factory Display Centre we were impressed with the quality of finish and the courteous staff. Our site was particularly difficult with extensive clay. You successfully excavated the hole using enormous skill and the pool was fitted with ‘no dramas’. Our new pool has enabled our family and friends to enjoy many social occasions. The final product, handover and after sales assistance has been exceptional”

“cool under pressure”
“We chose Northern Rivers Pools because of the great design and the ‘salesman’ was also the pool installer. Our pool is in a very difficult to get position and Grant was very cool under pressure and craning in the pool was successful. We love entertaining family and friends on hot summer days and cooling off without having to go anywhere. Even in winter it’s resort like conditions around our pool with the winter sun”



thumb_1336188285_hannam2“Our experience couldn’t have been any better. “

“We chose Northern Rivers Pools because we wanted to use a local business and after speaking with both Diana & Grant we felt confident that they were the ones we wanted to use. What impressed us was the fact that when we got the quote that’s what it was. Spot on. Grant is very easy to talk to and his team are excellent. When they gave us a time to meet them onsite they were on time every time. Our experience couldn’t have been any better. Grant used his experience to advise us about what size and shape would suit but left the choice to us which we are totally happy with. I swim in the pool everyday and when our grandchildren are here we can’t get them out of it. It’s been great for the family”

“We wouldn’t even bother getting quotes from other companies if we were to get a pool again”
“Grant was easy to deal with and knowledgeable and experienced. Other companies just sent a salesman who wasn’t the builder and we didn’t have as much trust in them. You showed us the best pool designs and it was definitely beneficial to go to the display pools and try the pools out. We had never swum in a fibreglass pool before and the experience made our decision to go ahead with confidence. In hindsight we probably would have chosen a larger pool, but we love it! Even in winter it is great to look at and is a beautiful feature of the backyard. We wouldn’t even bother getting quotes from other companies if we were to get a pool again”




“We always wanted our own backyard pool and with the help of Grant and Diana from Northern Rivers Pools we fulfilled our dream to own a pool. Grant answered all our questions and Diana helped us with all the Council paperwork. We chose the largest shell and had a tricky location, but Grant reassured us that the installation would be effortless. We have no regrets purchasing our pool and would highly recommend Grant and Diana to install your new pool.“

“We met Grant and were sold on your experience”
“We wanted a pool but we wanted to stay local. We met Grant & Diana and were sold on your experience. The greatest benefit is that when our adult children visit they now stay longer. It used to be hard to keep them in one place at the same time”




“We love the design, ease of use”

“All aspects of dealing with Grant from quote, follow up and build was very good with a flexible approach to our wishes. We love the design, ease of use and creating another area in the garden to sit, play and relax in amongst our decking and gardens”

“Grant gave us the best advice “
“Grant gave us the best advice on where to put our pool, taking everything into consideration. The style he recommended is perfect for our family. It was all done on time, I had a tight time frame and many things could have gone wrong but nothing did. Our new pool means Happy Family Time”




“Thank you both for your professional service throughout the ‘new pool’ journey. You should both be proud of what you and your company offer to your customers. You are more than welcome to visit for a dip any time!”

“If we ever need another pool we wouldn’t even consider going with anybody else”
“Dealing with Northern Rivers Pools was extremely satisfying. Grant was very personable and made us feel very confident and happy with our choice. We had obtained other quotes, but did not feel confident with the salesmen. Grant came across as a decent, honest man. He was always a man of his word, worked hard, kept us informed of what was happening and was polite and friendly to not only myself and my husband, but also our family. We are extremely satisfied with the work you have done and it has created numerous wonderful family moments. If we ever need another pool we wouldn’t even consider going with anybody else”

“We have recommended Northern Rivers Pools to our friends”
“We chose Northern Rivers Pools because they are a local company and offered the best value and equipment. Any time we thought there was a problem, Grant was right onto it. We have had lots of fun with our grandchildren in our new pool and positive feedback from other family and friends. We have recommended Northern Rivers Pools to our friends who are considering getting a pool”


Phil and Barbara

“We chose Northern Rivers Pools because you are a local company and offered the best value. The extra assistance and suggestions you gave us regarding landscaping was greatly appreciated. We love being able to cool off whenever we want and the extra time we have with the family when they visit.”


Albert & Sandra Webster

“We chose Northern Rivers Pools because Grant was so polite and helpful with all his advice. His tradesmen were also very courteous and polite and couldn’t have been more helpful. It’s so good now to be able to cool off at any time we wish to.“


Amy Bauer
Lennox Heads NSW

“From start to finish our experience with Northern Rivers Pools was hassle free. Everything went well and now my kids have a pool to learn how to swim. I would definitely call Grant again if we were to need a pool again in the future and have already recommended you to friends that are considering a pool.“

“Your reputation, competitive pricing and professional service won us over. We love our new salt water pool with it’s easy access and the great times we now spend at home.“

“In an industry full of ‘dodgy’ builders and greedy salesmen, Grant Vidler stood tall”
“This was our first pool and the process was easier than we had expected. Grant showed up to all arranged appointments on time, neat and tidy. His professional sales approach was very down to earth with no bull****, and not pushy. He is very helpful, informative & knowledgeable and made it easy to choose Northern Rivers Pools even though his was not the cheapest quote. Our pool was completed on time, on budget and we were very happy with all aspects of the service. In an industry full of ‘dodgy’ builders and greedy salesmen, Grant Vidler stood tall.“

C & S Parlevliet
Spring Grove NSW

“We would recommend Northern Rivers Pools to any friends or family”
“You offered a better service and better value than the competition offered. Your quote included what the others quoted as extras, and you offered advice and suggestions that helped us make our decision easier. We love coming home after a long day at work and relaxing in our pool. We would recommend Northern Rivers Pools to any friends or family looking to get a pool for themselves.“


Leanne Reardon

“…have already recommended you to 2 friends”
“Grant was friendly, honest and answered all of our questions. The main selling point though was that Grant also did the hands on work himself from start to finish. Everything went very smoothly and the time taken to complete was quicker than I expected. We love our new pool and have already recommended you to 2 friends who have also purchased from you.“


Lindsay Saunders
Piggabeen NSW

“After working on sites where Northern Rivers Pools had been installing pools, I was impressed by Grant’s workmanship and professional attitude. After investigating other pool companies, quality of product and installation was a bigger part of our decision rather than price. Grants willingness to have honest and open discussion about options, not only for installation but for items that relate to longer term efficiency as well as related costs was greatly appreciated. The experience was money well spent, it’s great being able to entertain, the kids love it and it’s nice to be able to look out the window and see the stunning pool area.“


Kylie Johnson
Lennox Head NSW

“Grant’s presentation and down to earth approach appealed to us and Northern Rivers Pools had the design that suited us. The time it took to get underway was quick and the installation happened real fast. We were able to swim sooner than expected. We’re exercising more using the pool and the kids swim more and bring their friends over regularly for a swim. It’s peaceful to know the kids aren’t up to any mischief. We’ve recently recommended you to friends who are looking forward to having their pool installed soon.“


Marg & Mike

“10 OUT OF 10”
“Grants pool building experience was evident at every stage from quote to installation of our pool. This was backed up by Diana’s constant communication informing us of the progress at every stage. 10 out of 10. We would recommend Northern Rivers Pools to all.“


Kristine Mumford
Alstonville NSW

“Grants friendliness and down to earth nature during the quote stood out. You had the size and shape of pool that best suited our yard. Once the process began it was a minimal time before we could swim. It’s changed our lifestyle in summer with kids and friends and means no more trips to the public pool!“


Vaughan and Sharon Lavelle
Casino NSW

“Just a quick note to advise that both Sharon and I are very proud to be in possession of a magnificent Northern Rivers Pool installed by Grant and his very capable team. I have had many people visit our home and all have been very impressed with the presentation and the overall attraction the pool gives. Grant all your work has been excellent especially tiling around the edge of the pool. Mate you get our highest award for quality. Thanks to Northern Rivers Pools for the unique motor and equipment housing in a Water Feature, which sits neatly on the edge of the pool. What a great idea for all pool equipment. Great to have had you guys on board and thanks again now everything is complete.“
