POOL CERTIFY – Accredited Swimming Pool Certifiers in Sydney, Australia

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.

Requirements for Sydney Pool and Fence Safety Inspections & Certification

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 POOL CERTIFY in Sydney?

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.

Getting your Sydney Swimming Pool Compliance Certificate

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.
