Is your Pool Registered?

If you live in Queensland and have a pool or spa, you need to ensure that it is reflected on the Pool Safety Register. Not complying with this regulation could prove quite costly – fines of up to $2000 can be imposed for not having your pool or spa registered.

The Reason for the Register

The register is part of a plan to improve pool safety for all pool users. Every pool will need to have a pool safety compliance certificate issued at the end of the day and the register is the first step in making sure that all pools and spas are properly compliant.

Stopping Accidental Drowning

Pool compliance regulations are not there to make your life more difficult – they are in place to help prevent the accidental drowning deaths of young kiddies. The regulations make a lot of sense when you consider them.

The idea is to stop kids being able to get into the pool area unattended or unsupervised. The idea, in a nutshell, is to ensure that the fences are not easy to climb over, that entrances to the pool area are secure and that kids cannot slip through the fence bars.
