Owners Michael and Rebecca Askin bring years of knowledge in helping locals find the perfect backyard showpiece for their situation, and continue to marry this deep experience with real passion and enthusiasm.

The Askins are ably supported by our Store Manager Esta, and our Certified Service Mechanic and Valet Service Technician Jonathan. No matter whether you’re hunting for a brand new spa pool, wanting advice on water maintenance, or are just interested in how to add some indulgence to your backyard, our friendly team is ready to help.

We are deeply passionate about pools and spas, and over the years we have developed a deep understanding of the unique water and climate found in Taranaki. We can advise you on everything from spa choice and installation to water care and upgrading, and are always eager to help.

For those looking to buy new, we even boast a selection of spa pools and swim spas that are pre-filled and ready for you to soak in - at Poolside Taranaki you can try before you buy! Call our team to book your test soak (and be sure to bring those togs down to the showroom!)
