Our Comprehensive Building Pool Inspection informs you about the condition of the pool
The intent of a pool inspection is to evaluate the current condition of all accessible pool components and the inspection consists of three phases:
- Pool placement and protection. This includes fencing, gates, screen enclosure,
- Pool vessel and coping. This includes the pool and deck surface condition (cracks, discoloration, and pitting) and the coping surrounding the pool (open joints, cracking).
- Pool equipment operation. This includes operation of the pump, inspection for leakage, proper skimming and filtration and filter pressure
All swimming pools must have a continuous safety barrier maintained by the pool owner that restricts access by young children to the pool. If you are a property owner and are selling a property with a pool built before July 19.
Check if your pool gate complies
- Gate open outwards, away from the pool
- Latch release is 1,500mm above finished surface
- Hinges are tension- adjustable (for self closure)
- Gate is self- closing and self latching
- Latch can not be locked in the "open" position
- latch cannot be prised opened using implements
- Gate latch cannot be shaken or jolted open
- Gate will latch from any position, including from resting on the latching mechnaism
- In-ground or above-ground swimming pools and spas must have a water recirculation and filtration system that complies with Australian standards. This is to reduce the risk of a young child being trapped by suction.
