In a refreshing twist on traditional pool designs, Australian-born Outback Pools is making waves with their innovative water tank pool concept. Founded in 2022 by former pool shop-owner Beau Rixon, the company has taken the iconic outback water tank and transformed it into a visually pleasing, sustainable, and budget-friendly pool solution.
Constructed from stainless steel corrugated tanks, an Outback Pool is built to endure the test of time. Filled with fresh water and employing an energy-efficient filtration system, these pools are not only gentle on your skin but also cost-effective to maintain.
“From its inception, our brand philosophy revolved around simplifying everything,” says Beau Rixon, the founder of Outback Pools. “We aimed to make it easy to deliver, install, and operate. It had to be easy on the skin, eyes, and most importantly, easy on the bank account.”
Rixon adds, “The average pool in Australia costs around $3-4k annually to maintain, and it’s not great for you. If we’re transitioning to chemical-free home products, why not do the same for our pools?”
Beau’s vision was to reduce the average yearly tank pool expenditure to under $1k, all while delivering a premium product in terms of design aesthetics, functionality, and environmental responsibility.
But what if you have a small backyard? Outback Pools has a solution. Despite their name, 50 percent of these innovative pools are installed in urban areas. This is because they offer 21 different sizes and can be tailored to fit any backyard configuration, as long as it has rounded edges.
“As long as it has rounded edges, we can create any shape you desire,” assures Beau.
Moreover, the installation process is remarkably swift, and these pools are entirely relocatable. By simply unscrewing the connectors, you can load your pool onto a trailer and take it with you whenever you decide to move.
Outback Pools presents an irresistibly straightforward solution. While pools have traditionally been associated with the wealthy, this Australian entrepreneur has successfully democratized the concept.
“We’re offering backyard happiness,” declares Beau. “It shouldn’t be limited to those with expansive backyards and deep pockets. There’s something profoundly meaningful about having a pool; it brings people together. We want every Australian family to share in that experience.
Outback Pools offers a range of options, including 21 different sizes and three different heights to suit your pool’s intended purpose. You can customize your pool with five internal color options: stainless, sandstone, riverstone, ocean, and skylight. Each Outback Pool is equipped with a variable-speed pump, filter, and UV sanitizing system.
For those seeking to enhance the pool’s aesthetics, options include adding steps and benches, spa jets, and LED lighting. For those who want to go the extra mile in terms of technology, Outback Pools offers an electric heat pump for year-round temperature control, remote monitoring, a smart controller, pool vacuum, and a thermal cover.
Prices for Outback Pools range from $13k to $33k, and you can design your pool water tank online to get an estimate of the cost, redefining the concept of pool ownership in Australia, making it accessible, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly. With their range of sizes and customisation options, these innovative water tank pools are making a splash in backyards across the Gold Coast and beyond.
