What our clients say

We used Narellan to put in our pool and it was the best decision we made!

Access to our back section is limited, and other pool companies didn’t want a bar of it. We just about gave up and then I contacted Narellan. Right from the start of the process the Narellan team were professional, efficient and responsive. John worked closely with our builder and made the process seamless. He went above and beyond, spending a lot of time making sure the pool was positioned correctly, and within our consent guidelines. He knows his reputation is on the line if things don’t go right and he only recommends what he truly believes is the best solution and product for you. There is no bull shit!

All of the Narellan staff who worked on the job were friendly and respectful – they all introduced themselves to us and our family, shook our hands and made sure we weren’t inconvenienced (while we had a stonking great hole in our backyard!) They really take pride in their work and made sure there was limited mess.

The office staff were really friendly to deal with, and really efficient. We knew what was happening on our project at every stage and even though they have a lot of pool builds on they made us feel special.

We would recommend Narellan to anyone who was looking at getting a pool.

Diane and Jason Halifax

In late January 2020 we put a Narellan Pool into our backyard at home and I have to say that we were delighted with the process, the people and the incredible finished result. John and Jacque were great to work with and made me feel comfortable right from the point of enquiry. It has to be said also that I was really impressed by the staff they have on the ground and in the office supporting them.

From the digger driver to the plumber to the installers…the level of respect, communication and care around my property along with their consideration for our family was brilliant.

We really couldn’t be happier with the finished result and the kids were thrilled to be using the pool so quickly. Thanks to the whole team at Narellan Hamilton.

John and Jacque Patterson and their team certainly gave us a signature experience.
The workmanship, professionalism and the product quality, produced outstanding results.

Vicky and Fraser Smith

Installing a swimming pool is a big decision and while there are a number of pool companies around the Waikato
Narellan pools and John Patterson where clear leaders in our evaluation. John along with Jacque and the wider team
at Narellan look after us right the way through the process helping us through the inevitable issues and decision that
needed to be made. The support took a great deal of the difficulty out of the process and helped us save time and
money – a big win for us. The team were respectful of our home while here and kept the work area clean and tidy
each day. We very pleased with the end result, its fantastic!

J Trower

When we built our new home in Cambridge upon our move from Gisborne, a swimming pool was a prerequisite. Back in Gisborne we had an above ground para pool but this time we were looking for something that was not only much bigger but would blend in perfectly with our new home. Based on what we knew of Narellan Pools we had no hesitation in deciding on a Narellan Pool and engaging with the Waikato franchisees John and Jacque Patterson.

We were provided with a couple of options that would fit within our budget and the space that we had allocated for the pool. With advice from Jacque we quickly decided on the pool that was right for us and John got onto sorting out the ground work requirements. Their professionalism, friendliness and John’s sense of humour, Ferrari shoes and all, meant we never considered going elsewhere or seeking alternative quotations. Right from the start it was apparent that the entire package was what we were after and Narellan didn’t disappoint.
In addition to the pool we obtained expert advice on fencing which they arranged and an introduction to Poolwerx who we quickly decided were the right people to keep our pool sparking clear. Having opted for the Blue Azurite colour, all we need are the fish and coral and we could think we were back swimming on the Great Barrier Reef.

Unless we have been away there has hardly been a day since Labour weekend that we haven’t used our pool. If looking for a quality pool, installed by professionals with an abundance of advice and good humour, all at a good price then we can’t recommend John and Jacque and the Narellan Waikato team highly enough.

Lindsay and Karen File

Just a quick note to thank you for guiding us through the process of our pool installation. We are absolutely thrilled with the end result, and thanks to your advising us to choose the Deluxe Triple Cell solar bubble pool cover, we are still swimming in mid April. The cover, when used correctly is keeping the pool at a very swimmable 25 degrees, and with the Covid 19 lockdown we are all in, we are spending many happy hours round the pool. Still a great way to cool down in this Indian Summer we are experiencing.

Well done Narellan Pools and thanks John and Jacque.
