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:
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.
