Pool Safety Certificates

Pool safety certificates ensure your pool complies with 2010 QLD pool safety laws to save lives. Your certificate will be valid for 2 years (for non-shared pools) and 1 year for shared pools, giving you comfort that your pool can be enjoyed safely. We make it easy to obtain a pool safety certificate for those looking to buy, sell or lease a property. All our pool safety certifications are delivered on the same day for compliant pools.

Pre-Purchase Pool Safety Inspection

Did you know that, providing the seller issues the correct paperwork (Form 36-notice of no pool safety certificate), they can legally sell their home without a valid safety certificate? This can be disastrous for buyers who believe their new pool is compliant when in fact they have 90 days to ensure that their pool fence meets safety requirements. Our pre-purchase pool safety inspections are completed by the industry’s most knowledgeable inspectors to establish if any work needs to be completed to bring a pool up to code. Knowing the cost of any potential work before buying a property could change the purchase price. Don’t purchase your new Gold Coast home without one, you could save a lot of money as well as saving a life.

Pool Safety Consultation

Are you worried about your pool’s safety? Why let this weigh on your mind when you can book a pool safety consultation and find out what needs to be done to ensure your pool is safe to use? A PoolInspec certified pool inspector will come to your home and inform you what your pool needs to meet QLD safety requirements.

Your pool safety inspection questions answered.
  • The Qld pool safety laws apply to all pools filled with water to a depth of 300mm. Therefore a spa and portable pool would have to comply.

  • If the boundary fence is directly around the pool, it acts as the pool fence. It represents a simple, efficient way to comply with pool safety legislation in Queensland and other states. Of course, your fence must comply with the relevant pool fencing standards in Queensland. If it does not, you will need to modify the barrier or build a separate one.

  • If you own a pool or spa in Queensland, you need to register your pool with the QBCC .

    If you don’t register your pool, you can get an on-the-spot fine of $235.60 or a maximum court penalty of over $2000!

  • Local government authorities conduct compliance checks and have the power to penalise pool owners for non-compliant pools. The QBCC also checks that pools are registered and may fine those who have not registered their pools.

  • If you’re building or reconstructing a pool fence, you should ensure that it complies with the minimum pool fencing requirements. For a comprehensive list of standards, check out our pool safety checklist

    Some of the requirements on the checklist include:

    • The fence height must be at least 1200mm high with no gaps of more than 100mm anywhere in the barrier.
    • 1800mm high fences must have a 900mm non-climbable zone from the top of the fence, on at least one side of the fence.
    • The pool gate must open away from the pool area, and the gate latch must be on the inside of the pool. Gate latches must also be at least 150mm down from the top of the gate.
    • The pool gate must close and latch by itself when opened from all positions.
    • Remove climbable objects (branches, pot plants, furniture, etc.) from the 900mm non-climbable zone. See below diagram indicating this regulation:
    • Doors must not open up to the pool. Child-resistant door sets don’t comply any longer.
    • Windows must not open more than 100mm if there is access to the pool area. Alternatively, they must be security screened.
    • A CPR sign must be visible from anywhere in the pool area and must show an emergency number.
  • Local authorities have the power to investigate any pool owner to ensure their pool complies with regional safety standards. If they discover any breaches, they will order the pool owner to make changes and even issue an on-the-spot fine. For severe or persistent violations, the court can also impose financial penalties of up to $20 000!

  • A building and pest inspector can only perform a pool inspection if he is qualified and licensed by the QBCC to act as a pool safety inspector.
