Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, the NSW Government introduced the swimming pool amendment Act 2012 introducing the NSW swimming pool register which made it compulsory to register a pool or spa from November 2013 onwards

A pool is any excavation, structure or vessel that is capable of being filled with water to a depth greater than 30cm and that is solely or principally used or that is designed, manufactured or adapted for the purpose of swimming, wading or any other human aquatic activity and includes a spa pool but does not include a spa bath, bath tub, or anything within a bathroom.

From the 29th April 2016 if you are selling or leasing a residential property with a pool or spa you will need a private certifier to certify your pool and include a compliance certificate in any contract for sale or lease.

Yes. We are fully insured for public and professional indemnity. Policy can be forwarded to clients upon request.

An inspection normally takes approx. 1 hour.

Although it is preferred that someone be at the property, an inspection can be performed if nobody is in attendance providing access to the pool is prearranged and any animals are secured elsewhere.

The pool inspector will promptly issue a pool safety certificate and update the details on the NSW Swimming Pool Register. The certificate is current for three years from the date of issue.

If your property does not pass the inspection, a Non-Compliance Notice is issued. A detailed report including photographs outlining the areas of concern is provided. Property owners are given six weeks to rectify any problem areas and bring it up to compliance standards.

A reinspection will need to be organised within 6 weeks of the original inspection date. If a pool remains non-compliant after 6 weeks, the pool inspector is legally bound to notify the local authority.

For properties that are being sold, a Certificate of Non Compliance can be issued at the owners request. This certificate can then be attached to the contract of sale which then passes the responsibility to the purchaser to rectify safety issues to achieve compliance.
A purchaser will have 90 days from settlement to obtain a Certificate of Compliance.
