Gold Coast Pool Safety Inspections

Queenslander's love their pools. With our sub-tropical climate, its no wonder that well over 280,000 households* in Queensland have a private swimming pool on the premises. Unfortunately this has tragically resulted in backyard pools being the leading cause of death of children aged 1 to 4 years old. This could be easily prevented by following the correct precautions on pool safety and fences to ensure the family swimming pool remains a safe place.

What many home owners don't realise is that new pool safety laws have been introduced in Queensland over the past two years, replacing 11 different pool safety standards that existed before 2009 with one safety standard - the Queensland Development Code, Mandatory Part 3.4. While this will have little effect on new swimming pools being built, homes with existing pools will however need to be inspected by one of our licensed pool safety inspectors to make sure they meet the new safety standards.

Why some pools fail a safety inspection

Some of the most common issues that our pool safety inspectors see when conducting a mandatory pool inspection include (but aren't limited to) the following:

Before a pool safety inspection
