Does your Pool comply with current safety standards? Can you see which of the above pool enclosures would fail inspection and why?
In 2013, the New South Wales Government reviewed and amended the Swimming Pools Act 1992 and now requires all swimming pools and spas to be registered.
From 2016, a valid compliance or non-compliance certificate must be issued before the property is sold. A Sydney pool certificate is issued after the swimming pool and/or spa has been inspected by qualified Sydney swimming pool and fence certifiers such as POOL CERTIFY.
These changes are designed to enhance the safety of young children around backyard swimming pools and put a stop to easily preventable drownings, injuries and accidents. The pool compliance inspectors and certifiers at POOL CERTIFY can help you attain your Sydney pool safety and fence certificate, ensuring you are not falling foul of any Sydney and NSW swimming pool and fence compliance legislation.
The new law applies to all types of swimming pools and spa pools including in-ground, above-ground, indoor, portable and other vessels that are capable of being filled to a depth of 300mm or more of water. Bathroom spas that are emptied after use are excluded.
If any of the above applies to your property and you are in the process of selling or leasing, we’d suggest that you contact our accredited Sydney swimming pool certifiers as soon as possible for an inspection to attain your swimming pool safety certificate before the sale goes through.
Why choose POOL CERTIFY? Because the role of our Sydney pool certifiers is to inspect your gates, barriers and pool area for safety and compliance with relevant standards and identify any safety breaches and advise how to address them. Due to our extensive experience in this field, we can issue you with a swimming pool compliance checklist for your Sydney pool so you can see what needs to be done and work on a plan of action together.
If your pool or spa is found to be non-compliant with new laws, we will advise you exactly how to rectify any such issues. Once resolved, you will be eligible to receive a compliance certificate which becomes part of your contract of sale or lease for your property. You can also market and sell your property with a non- compliance certificate, whereby the purchaser rectifies any issues to achieve compliance. We’d recommend attaining pool compliance before you sell the property, a Sydney pool safety certificate is, of course, desirable for any buyer and without it you might lose your sale or lease. This is obviously a scenario worth avoiding at all costs.
A Certificate of Compliance is valid for three years, after which time, your pool will need to be re-inspected and re-certified.
On behalf of CatholicCare’s Foster Care Team (Wollongong), I would like to express my gratitude to you and Carol for all your assistance and support in this matter. Thank you!!
I’m glad I chose the Premium inspection because without David’s walk-through and helpful advice, the repairs would have taken a lot longer to resolve as I had a lot of tricky issues. Now I can place my property on the market with a Compliance Certificate, thanks David.
All I can say is thank you to David for his reliable same day service. My experience before meeting David was tarnished by the previous inspector who took a month to send me my Non Compliance Certificate! In that time I lost a sale and the opportunity to buy the home I wanted. I now have to start again. I wish I had called Pool Certify in the first place!
Thanks David for your reliability and time you spent explaining how to easily fix the faults in my fencing. I’m sorry to say you were my 4th choice – the first company I booked didn’t turn up and the others didn’t call me back. I know I live out west but reliability was important to me as my property was in cooling off phase. Again, it was great to meet you David and have you come back to re-inspect 2 days later means my property can be sold with Compliance Certificate.
Thank you to Carol and David for helping us make our pool a lot safer.
I would like to thank you for a very good service. I did not expect the Pool Certifier to be so helpful and understanding. You explained all the work I needed to do in detail. I found you to be very professional and helpful in a kind way and would highly recommend you to anyone seeking a pool certified.
A very well written Report, thorough and informative and one of the better Reports that I’ve seen.
Thanks for the very comprehensive report – much appreciated.
Thank you again for your assistance.
Glad I chose your company as you have been very pleasant to do business with.
Thank you for your assistance in the timely inspection and approval.
Thank you for helping us out at short notice! You guys are legends! We received Compliance Certificate just before tenant arrived to sign the lease. I have already recommended you to my colleagues.
David & Carol, I would like to thank you both for your professionalism and attention to detail, you have made my job very easy and I would definitely recommend you to any of my future clients. Your initial report was extremely user friendly and with plenty of detail.
Thank you both very much.
I just wanted to thank you for your prompt and helpful assistance – our client was able to settle on time after realising that he needed to install a new barrier to achieve compliance for his purchaser.
That’s fantastic, thank you both. Very good service and I’ll be happy to refer you on whenever I can.
A very comprehensive Report. Thank You.
