Pre-engineered and poured in the Plungie Australia warehouse, the Plungie pools are an industry-leading product that has completely disrupted [for all the right reasons] the Australian pool market. To answer the many questions you’re probably starting to ask yourself, we’ve answered the top 3 most asked questions below!


How much should I expect to spend?

Costs. Without fail, we see this question in nearly every initial query and while it’s easy to give you a rough estimate, a more exact figure depends on a range of factors. This includes the size of precast pool you’re looking for, the accessibility of your site and the site preparation requirements.

What is the internal finish of the pool and can I add tiles?

Besides the final handover of your pool, getting to choose the final look of your pool is by far the most exciting stage. The Plungie pools use an internal high-performance thermo polymer coating called ecoFINISH. ecoFinish is a highly engineered form of powder coating that’s heat-blasted onto the internal shell of the pool, forming a completely sealed, flexible, waterproof membrane that’s both luxurious to the touch, and highly durable. It comes in 6 spectacular colour options.


Now let’s talk tiles. Depending on your desired style, you may choose to install coping tiles on the surrounding ledge of your pool. This is an easy post-installation process and can be discussed during your design and planning stage. If you’re looking to cover the internal walls of the plungie with tiles, we can arrange for your Plungie to be delivered with no ecoFINISH.
