Pool Builders Yeppoon
Keppel Pools is an independent, family-owned and operated company, run by Kim and Margaret Salmond. Since 2005 Kim and Margaret have together built a reputation among the people and businesses of Yeppoon and Rockhampton as a trusted, down-to-earth and hard-working team in the fiberglass pool industry.
Today, Keppel Pools continue to go from strength to strength, and are proud to be held in such high esteem by customers, whether they are homeowners or home builders.
Kim and Margaret have listened to their customers questions and taken each piece of feedback on board. Through this ongoing process of improvement, they have ended up with what they think is one of their biggest strengths: the way they work.
Kim is never one to shy away from a challenge, outside of work he enjoys hiking and climbing – Kim conquered Mount Kilimanjaro, which is an astonishing 8000m above sea level. Not only does Kim show great dedication to hiking, he shows the same amount of dedication to every customer and project.

Certified for quality and guaranteed to last.
Keppel Pools supplies and installs fibreglass pools manufactured by Barrier Reef Pools, an Australian company with a stellar reputation for high-quality products and craftsmanship.
The only fibreglass pool manufacturer in the country to hold the Australian Standards 5 Tick certification, Barrier Reef Pools offer a 25-year warranty on its pools – and we at Keppel Pools also offer a 5-year warranty on all workmanship.
The 5 Tick certification is awarded as a result of careful assessment of a company’s manufacturing processes and procedures, and covers areas such as:
Clear and standardised procedures for each manufacturing stage of Barrier Reef pool shells.
All materials are rigidly controlled to meet performance specifications, including gelcoat, resins, glass, reinforcements, and fittings and fixtures.
The manufacturing process is monitored at every step, from preparing the mould to full production, detailing, inspection, temperature control, and transport to the building site.
Comprehensive testing and quality control is performed, including visual checks, ultrasonic hardness checks, and thickness and rigidity tests.
Every pool is embossed with a unique 5-digit serial number to enable identification and tracking throughout the pool’s life.
