Swimming Pool Safety Fence Inspections

There are over 300,000 backyard swimming pools in New South Wales, and approximately 70% are non compliant with current Acts and Regulations, swimming pool safety is essential.

We are based in Sydney and travel all over NSW for your Swimming Pool Safety Inspections.

Pool barrier requirements apply to in-ground, above-ground and other portable pools capable of being filled with water to a depth of 300mm or more.

Do you know your responsibilities under the Swimming Pools Act?

Swimming Pool Safety for Owners

If you are the owner of premises on which a swimming pool is situated you must ensure that the pool is at all times surrounded by a child-resistant barrier consisting of fencing of a height no less than 1.2 metres (1.8 metres if a boundary fence) and/or your house wall. You must always keep your barrier, gates and doors in good working condition. Doors and gates providing access to the pool area must be kept securely closed at all times when not in actual use.

Swimming Pool Safety for Landlords

The landlord is responsible for providing and maintaining the premises in a reasonable state of repair. The tenant is not to intentionally or negligently damage the premises and the tenant must notify the landlord of any damage.
