Pool Safety Inspections 

Does the pool fence at your new home comply with the current pool safety laws? Do you want to reduce the risk of a child gaining access to your pool? Do you want peace of mind? Let me complete your Pool Safety Inspection to comply with the law.

Since December 2010 the Queensland Government implemented new pool safety laws which require all existing pools to comply with the Queensland Development Code – part MP3.4 “Pool Safety Barriers”

My inspection will be carried out in accordance with the Pool Safety Standard which is the Queensland Development Code – part MP3.4, Australian Standards 1926 2007 parts 1 & 2 and all other standards prescribed under the Building Act 1975 for ensuring the safety of persons using a regulated pool.

If the inspected pool is Compliant 

If the inspected pool is deemed to be Compliant you will be issued with a Pool Safety Certificate – Form 23 within 2 business days and your pool will be placed on the Pool Safety Register. Access to the register:

If the inspected pool is Non-Compliant

If the inspected pool is deemed to be Non-Compliant you will be issued with a Pool Safety Non-Conformity Notice – Form 26. You will also be given an Inspection Report which will detail items (including photographic evidence) that have been determined to breach the current Pool Safety Standard and will require rectification within 90 days of the date on your Form 26. I will also offer advice and recommendations on the non-compliant issues and can complete minor pool safety repairs if required.

The Pool will also be registered as being Non-Compliant and under the Legislation must engage the re-inspection to be completed by the initial Licenced Inspector (me) to receive your Pool Safety Certificate.

When all items have been rectified you can book a re-inspection which will incur an additional fee. You will receive your Pool Safety Certificate within 2 business days of the successful re-inspection.

Pricing for inspections depend on individual inspections provided and the site inspection area – ring for quote.
