Spa Pools

Will your Spa Pool pass the lift test?

Spa Pools

Children are attracted to water and what is more enticing that the family spa pool!  In NSW outdoor spa pools must be made child safe.
This can be achieved with a pool fence or a compliant child resistant lockable lid.
If your spa relies on a lid for safety our Certifier will check the spa straps for missing and broken components.
Make sure your have your key stored 1500mm away and have the lid locked for the inspection. 
Whether the straps came with the lid, or additional locking devices are required to be attached, the lift test will be applied. The maximum permissible gap is 100mm. 
So check the condition of the straps and locking devices as well as the lid itself. 
Then fix any broken locks on your spa cover and conduct your own lift test. 
Ensure the straps ( you could need two or more for each side) are all tensioned and locking devices engaged.
Or you could go for two 4 metre long straps for  a spa like the size of the one shown here. 
With a longer strap design, there are less locking devices to lock and unlock and  the temptation to leave straps unlocked is reduced.  
Oh and don’t forget to install an approved CPR sign in the vicinity of the spa pool.
