Pool Safety Inspections

New tougher pool fencing regulations will be in effect in New South Wales as of April 2016. This means that if you are buying, selling or renting out a property with a pool, you will need to satisfy local council requirements regarding fence safety. Rest assured that with Premier Property Reports you will receive the right advice and prompt, professional, reliable service regarding your swimming pool/spa fence from an accredited E1 pool safety inspector (BPB2362).

The 7 most common issues that result in a pool failing a safety inspection:

  • Non-compliant gate latches and/or hinges
  • Distances between vertical member are greater than 100mm
  • Distances below bottom railings are greater than 100mm
  • Climbable objects abutting the pool enclosure (trees, air conditioning units)
  • Fence height is below 1200mm
  • Climbable fence rails on neighbouring fence line
  • No current pool resuscitation sign secured in a visible location

You may need to arrange a pool fence inspection if:

  • You are a private home owner selling, buying or privately renting a house or unit.
  • You are a real estate agent involved in selling or renting residential properties.
  • You manage a body corporate or community title property
  • You operate or own an accommodation property like a resort, hotel, motel or caravan park
