Tiger Shipping Containers are the leading Shipping Container Pools company in Australia, and love nothing better than building and supplying quality 20ft (6m) and 40ft (12m) Shipping Container Pools Australia-wide.


Deciding on an above-ground container pool is the best decision you can make, as it will save you a whole lot of time (and money!), because your new above-ground container pool will be delivered as a complete product, with little more to do than filling it up with water and connecting the pump to the mains. No having to suffer through weeks or months where your backyard looks like a construction site is an absolute godsend! With a container pool from Tiger Shipping containers, you just pick the length pool you want, pick a spot in your backyard where it’s going to go, and then voila, your above-ground container pool is in situ!


Being Australia’s most trusted shipping container pool manufacturers, our container pools mean we take pride in our workmanship. Made entirely of quality Aussie steel, our container pools are much stronger and durable structures than the typical above-ground pools (which often have a much shorter ‘shelf life’). Because our container pools are built to last.


The fiberglass pool within the container has a wonderfully ergonomic design with wide steps and comfy benches and boasts a nifty child safety ledge around the perimeter which starts from the deck and runs the full length of the shipping container. So, both you and the little ones can safely enjoy a swim on a hot summer’s day.


A Tiger Container Pool comes with a beautiful deck, sturdy stairs, and a child safety door. The robust filtration system we use is housed underneath the deck and is easily accessible through the original shipping container door (which is completely lockable).


The exterior of your container pool is made of super-strong Australian steel. And you wouldn’t want it any other way, as this is the part that supports everything. But the interior of the container pool course comes with an added touch of luxury. And that’s why we build the interiors of our container pools with super durable fiberglass.

Here are a few facts that you probably don’t know about fibreglass pools (but are worth knowing!).

Fibreglass doesn’t deteriorate, and actually strengthens with age.
Fibreglass is 17 times stronger than concrete, and comes with the added bonus of flexibility to go with its innate strength.
The beautiful aquatic colour is moulded into the fibreglass, giving a smooth and durable finish that looks amazing when viewed through water.

Fibreglass swimming pools never have to be drained for acid washing, remarciting, re-plastering or painting. And they have a smooth, non-porous surface which means the swimming pool surface doesn’t harbour resident algae, and makes cleaning walls 90% easier (therefore requiring less chemicals and bringing down your on-going cleaning costs).


Tiger Shipping Containers only use the best gelcoats to give you the most visually appealing above-ground pool on the market. The materials we use have all been tested to ensure they can handle Australia’s notoriously hot sun, and also resist the harsh effects of any chemical corrosion. This results in an above-ground pool that will retain the vibrant aquatic colour.


Tiger Shipping Containers use super durable ModWood for our container pool decking, as its amazingly resistant to the toughest weather conditions. Something that makes it a great, low maintenance alternative to conventional timber. This means you’ll save significant time and money with the pool’s upkeep. Not that you need to worry yourself too much about that, given our Container Pools come with a 12-month warranty!


Being Australia’s #1 container pool company, Tiger Shipping Containers understand about how exciting the thought of owning a shipping container pool can be. Our container pools are so much cheaper than an in-ground pool, are made entirely of quality Aussie steel, and their robust assembly creates a much stronger and more durable structure than the typical above-ground pools (which often have a much shorter ‘shelf life’). All of which makes a container pool the ideal addition to the Aussie backyard!

So can you



Our container pools have a wonderfully ergonomic design that really blends in with your backyard. From the wide, welcoming steps, to the comfy benches and decadent ModWood decking, a Tiger Shipping Container pool really does add a touch of class to every Australian backyard. After all, who doesn’t want a pool? And a shipping container pool is a cost-effective alternative to an in-ground pool.

A swimming pool is a great addition to any home. Let’s face it, nothing is more quintessentially ‘Aussie’ than owning your own backyard swimming pool! With the Aussie summer stretching on and on (thanks to Global warming!), there really is no better way to get in some quality family time than getting together around your very own swimming pool, in your very own backyard. The health benefits, both physical and mental, of diving in to the cool clear water on a hot day, are many and varied. And once you’ve owned a pool, you start to wonder how you ever lived without one!

The problem with getting a swimming pool for most people is the cost of installing one. A traditional in-ground swimming pool can be frightfully expensive. But an Australian-built container pool from Tiger Shipping Containers puts that problem to bed, as our container pools are available at a fraction of the cost of installing a regular in-ground pool.



But before you can install this affordable swimming pool on your property, there are 5 quick considerations you need to make. These are:

Building codes - Depending on the location of your property, the government might have some kind of building restrictions for swimming pools. Make sure you consult with your local authorities first before installing a shipping container swimming pool. This is especially important if the pool will be partially or completely below ground.

Available space - Obviously, you’ll require quite a bit of space to install the pool. This will determine its dimensions and the number of containers you will require. If space is available and the budget allows it, you can have several shipping containers welded together to create a larger pool. You can also play around with arrangements to create a shape that is more pleasing to you. A 20ft container makes a fairly sized pool but a 40ft shipping container (or several) can be used for larger pools.

The nature of the ground on which the pool will be installed is also something you need to think about. The type of soil and slope of your land will determine how the pool is installed.

Depth - Containers are 2.6 meters high for regular containers and 2.9 meters for high cubes. This will generally be the depth of the pool without modifications. Alternatively, the container can be cut to make your desired depth. If you do choose to use the container with its original height, however, you might need to install it partially or completely below ground for accessibility reasons or have a special deck built around it if it’s completely above ground.

Cost - Although shipping container pools are cheaper to construct, running costs will almost be the same as those of a normal pool. Consider the type of pump and filtration equipment and accessories you’ll use to keep these costs as low as possible over the pool’s lifespan. It will also cost you extra if the container pool will be partially or completely below ground because of excavation costs.

Interior lining - Similar to regular swimming pools, container pools can be fitted with different linings depending on the budget and preference. Common linings for this kind of pools are fibreglass and heavy-duty painting. Something to remember also is that shipping containers are constructed to keep water out, not in. So for painted interiors, special welding will be required to ensure the container does not leak.
