Helping families create their dream lifestyle...

About us

Paul and Jackie Cooper have been helping families enjoy their swimming pools for over 18 years...

Here at Pool & Pump World owned and operated by Jackie and Paul Cooper, we supply, install, service and repair Swimming Pools, Spa Pools, Rural and Domestic Water Systems.  We’re also passionate about crystal clean and sparkling water and love working alongside people to get their pool and spa water in tip-top shape.

We’re also members of the Master Pool Builders Guild, where the Guild assesses our workmanship on an ongoing basis. Membership of the Guild is a reflection of our work ethics.

We also do things a little bit differently around here.  We don’t like seeing people overwhelmed, frustrated or upset about their pool or spa; we welcome every question no matter how big or small.  Just call in and see us for a chat.

PS. We happily help people get their spa or pool water balanced or even set up, even if you’re brought it somewhere else.  We love having fun around water and wish you can have the same fun too.

A pool or spa adds so much to your lifestyle bringing fun, joy and happiness to everyone in your family.  As a family-owned and operated business, we truly value our relationships with our customers and the investment they make in creating special life-long memories for their families.

From our family to yours!

The next time you’re in town, call out to our shop at 27 Gordons Road, Ashburton (we’re not far from the new Ashburton Business Estate), where you’ll meet up with Jackie and Michelle, who are always happy to help. 

Our retail shop is always stocked with pool and spa chemicals, water toys, fabric samples for pool and spa covers, pool fence examples and is open Monday to Friday 9am – 5.00pm and on Saturdays from December to February 10am – 12noon. 

Free water testing is all part of our service.  Simply bring a water sample with you in a clean container and we can water test this for you and then recommend the right recipe to have your water clean, clear and sparkling again.

Let’s get started creating fun family memories at your place!

Kind words from our wonderful customers...

“Paul and Jackie and their staff helped us plan and decide what was the best pool to suit our family of five. Right from the initial planning stage, including consents, through the fencing and paving.”

“We are delighted with our pool at Flow Pool and Studio. As it is a commercial grade we have to perform at a high standard – Paul, Jackie and Clark have allowed us to deliver this! So many clients have remarked it’s ‘the cleanest pool we have ever seen’. We are able to utilise our pool for aquacise, hydrotherapy, lap swimming, resistance training and when we are closed for business…personal use. Customer service has been prompt and helpful. We thoroughly recommend doing business at Pool and Pump World Ashburton.”
