Pool Inspection Process

Once you’ve made a booking with us, one of our Pool Safety Inspectors will attend your property to inspect your pool fencing for compliance with the pool fencing standards.

Compliant Pool Fencing

If carrying out a pool safety inspection of existing pool fencing is compliant, the Pool Inspector will issue a Pool Safety Certificate (Form 23) if the fencing is compliant

Non-Compliant Pool Fencing

If the fencing of an existing pool is found to be non-compliant, the Pool Inspector will either:

  1. Provide verbal advice and re-inspect the pool within 2 days (usually for minor matters); or
  2. Issue a Pool Non-Conformity Notice (Form 26), which will include details about why the fence doesn’t comply and what must be done to make the fencing compliant. We  will work with you to suggest options for making your pool fencing comply, and help you along the way.  Re-inspection is required within 3 months, and owners must ask the same Inspector to undertake the re-inspection.
