Common pool non-compliance issues

All swimming pools or spa pools must have a continuous safety barrier maintained by the pool owner that restricts access by young children to the pool (in very limited  circumstances self closing doors and restricting windows can be used).

  • All Pools installed before 1993 must be upgraded to today’s standards.
  • There must be no climbable objects within 900mm on the outside of the pool fence and 300mm on the inside.
  • Spa covers and lockable covers on spas are not compliant they must be fenced.
  • Self closing doors are no longer compliant (They can be used in very limited situations).
  • If a boundary fence forms part of the pool enclosure it may have to be extended.
  • Gates must close from 3 distances on first go.
  • Gates, hinges, latches and fencing rust & wear out and may need replacing.
  • Trees grow into the pool area which could be climbable to access the pool area.
  • Regulations change.

Do you own a Pool or Spa, and is it safe?

Did you know that many pools fail their first inspection? Don’t leave it to chance and risk a loved ones life.

Over time, gate latches and hinges wear out, fence panels rust, bolts become loose, and trees grow into the pool area making them climbable and easy to access the pool enclosure. Over the last five years more than 150 Australian children under the age of five drowned, with over 50% due to faulty gate latches or hinges. While all these drowning deaths are preventable, it is the 50% that occur in home swimming pools where your immediate action can make a difference. Home pool fencing and effective supervision can reduce these tragic drowning deaths to zero. We can replace hinges/latches/etc. on the spot, so you don’t have to worry about the hassle.

Don’t risk it…you may only get one chance.

If your pool or spa is not compliant, we can give you a written report including photos of what needs to be done to bring your pool/spa up to code.

We are available 7 days a week and cover all Adelaide metro areas (including rural & country locations – contact for a quote).
