Pioneer Pool & Building


The company was founded by Harry Sweeney and Allan McNabb, who imported the American concept of shotcrete, or sprayed concrete technology. They developed formulations and techniques that are the basis of the system Pioneer Pools still uses today.
Since Harry and Allan’s retirement, the company is now run by Harry’s son, Chris. The company’s philosophy has always been the incorporation of the best available systems, materials and equipment. This covers pool design, construction and maintenance, achievable by the company’s construction experience, proven construction and equipment systems, and its ongoing maintenance section.

Pioneer Pools also stocks spa and pool equipment, including spa covers, heat pumps, LED pool lights, manual and automatic pool covers, training aids, automation systems and pool lift chairs. The key to this is attending pool shows and conferences. New technology includes variable speed pumps, smart systems, integrating lights, water features, self-cleaning systems, etc. It is also the New Zealand agent for Berndorf stainless steel pools and spas.
