Attracting more than 200 entries and 400 people at the Hyatt Regency Perth on 1 July, the SPASA WA Awards of Excellence brought the WA pool industry together to celebrate the best of the best. Award nominations numbers were reportedly up on previous years, across all sectors of the industry.
Quality Dolphin Pools took home the Pool of the Year award for the fifth time in six years. The pool is situated 4.5 m above ground level, with a fully tiled spa separated from the pool with an acrylic panel, creating a seamless vanishing edge that joins the pool and spa together.
Other major awards included:
- Pool Shop of the Year: The Pool Shop Kalamunda
- Supplier of the Year: Austral Pool Solutions
- Product of the Year: Downunder Cover System — Sunbather
- Sustainable Product of the Year: Heatseeker UniPanel — Supreme Heating

“In Western Australia we have some of the best pool builders and service providers in the country,” said SPASA WA Executive Officer Bryce Steele.
“The pool and spa industry in WA continues to set the benchmark for not only the rest of Australia but right around the world as leaders in the construction of pools, spas and the servicing of the retail and after-market sectors. The competition gets tougher every year as our members are always looking for that advantage over their competitor.
“Winning an award provides incredible recognition that will help build reputation — it’s a great way for the award winner to let everybody know that they’re an award-winning professional and an industry leader.”
