Where to find paddling pools and swimming pools for sale in New Zealand
Need to cool off? Try these online retailers for pools of all shapes and sizes.
Summer has been a lot hotter than any of us expected it to be, with weeks of blue skies and temperatures hovering around 26-30 degrees for a lot of regions. The warm weather is hopefully set to continue, so if you can’t get to the beach or have a local swimming spot, a swimming pool or paddling pool is one investment that you won’t regret.
However, there is one problem. Most of the go-to retailers for above-ground swimming pools and paddling pools to cool off in have sold out. Don’t be disheartened though, as thankfully there are many online retailers that still have stock available. You may not be able to get the exact size or type of pool that you were hoping for, but hey, if it holds water and you can fit in it, that’s all that counts right?

Do I need to put a fence around my paddling pool?
In most cases yes, but there are some exceptions.
The current pool safety legislation has been in effect size 2017 to reduce the risk of young children drowning. Rules apply to both permanent and inflatable pools, so you will see warning notices on pool packaging and on the product pages when shopping online.
You can read the pool safety guidance here. Some key points to be aware of include:
- All pools that can hold water to a depth of 400mm must have a barrier that restricts unsupervised access by children.
- Indoor pools at a residence must have a barrier.
- Before installing a pool barrier, you need to obtain a building consent.
- Inspections need to be carried out every 3 years.
- Fences need to be at least 1.2m high and 1.8m high if the fence borders on your neighbours property.
- Any door that opens from the house to the pool area must have a locking device that cannot be easily opened by a child under 6.
Before purchasing a pool, make sure that you understand the rules around fencing and that you are able to comply. Failing to comply could mean a fine of $100,000.
