Compliant pool barriers help save lives by preventing young children from accessing swimming pools.
All pools, including spas and some portable pools, must now comply with the pool safety standard.
The standard applies to homes with new or existing pools as well as short and long-term accommodation premises. This includes new and existing pools in houses, unit complexes, hotels, motels, backpacker accommodation, caravan parks and mobile van parks.
If you're a pool owner, maintaining your pool includes more than just testing the water. Your pool fence or barrier must also be regularly checked. There are strict laws about fence height, gate latches and other necessary inclusions. These regulations are there to keep you and your family safe but can also be a bit of a headache. We can do the hard work for you though. We can evaluate your pools compliance so you don’t have to spend hours memorizing and ticking off the QBCC’s compliance checklist. We will check the pool from top to bottom to ensure you are up to regulations.
