I am a property manager and I manage rental properties. Some lease expiry dates are May 2011. Should I arrange an inspection now or should I wait until May 2011?

Now. Whilst mypoolinspection inspectors can inspect your clients pools almost immediately, the pool fence may not be compliant. We expect that there will be serious demand for pool fence repairers.

Do Pool Safety Inspectors carry out minor repairs too?


A Pool Safety Inspector offering a cheap inspection fee needs to make money somewhere.

Its a conflict of interest for a Pool Inspector to I’ll need to install a new gate before I can Certify this pool fence, and then charge you an outrageous cost to do so.

Mypoolinspection does not do minor repairs, but we will arrange quotes for you, from independent repairers, obligation-free. Our inspectors don’t receive any payment if a repairers quote is approved.

What happens from 30th November 2015? Does everyone need a pool inspection?

From 30th November 2015, every pool owner must ensure their pool complies with the Pool Safety Standard.

This does not mean you need an inspection, but you must make sure the pool barrier is compliant.

For most pool owners, it is almost impossible to understand all the legislation to work out if the pool barrier complies. Most pool owners need advice from a Pool Safety Inspector.

Consider the risks of doing nothing:

Councils have the power to enter your backyard to check your pool. They may fine you, and issue enforcement notices, if your pool does not comply.

The State Government can issue fines for non-compliance (for individuals, its more than $19,000!)

if a tragedy occurs in your pool, because your fence is non-compliant, and you are sued by the family, your insurance company might not pay out.
