Charles has probably only one other rival as the most experienced designer of swimming pools in Australia. If one considers fiberglass pools, he has no peer. He has acted for Crystal Pools (concrete) for 25 years, designing all manner of domestic pools and also aquatic centers. He has also acted for Compass Pools (fiberglass) for the same period of time. In 1987 he was Technical Secretary to Standards for the major overhaul of the fiberglass pool codes AS1838 and AS1839. In 1993 he won an Australian design award for the Compass Maxi Pool. The pool was the first totally free standing fiberglass pool in the world and has proved to be a significant step forward for the technology.
