This commercial was shot at a decommissioned reservoir north east o f Melbourne at the start of Winter. The water temperature was about 4 degrees celsius and the actors had to spend quite a bit of time in the water between shots. There was a team of hot water wranglers and a number of dedicated off screen hot tents that helped to fight of the chance of hypothermia during the filming of the ad.

Apart from that, the houses in the commercial are posted in because there are no bodies of water anywhere close to Melbourne or Sydney that have the combination of both residences and safe water to swim in.
