Make nessesary changes

From our report there may be work required to make your barrier compliant. We can offer recommendations of trusted professionals and different options to help you achieve this, or you can undertake this yourself.



Once the required changes are made call us to book your free re-inspection*. We will check the changes to make sure they are now complaint and issue you with the compliance certificate to provide to your local council.

Highly, highly recommend Lachie at Poolsafe Pool and Spas. He is professional, helpful, punctual and an absolute gentleman!! A pleasure to deal with. 😁 We will see you in 4 years, Lachie.
Kristian B
Could not recommend Lachie highly enough. He did our pool fence compliance report, he came out quickly and on time, helped us rectify a couple of things that we needed to do, and always felt a high level of service and that he genuinely wanted to help. Perfect.

I could not recommend Poolsafe Pool & Spa Inspections any higher, polite, friendly and knows his business! Quick to respond to messages & emails. Recommendations were given (& acted on). Attention to detail might as well be Lachy’s middle name!

Frequently asked questions

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

Book an inspection
  • How do I know if my pool needs to be inspected?

    In Victoria, all swimming pools and spas capable of holding more than 300mm (30cm) of water must be registered with the local council and undergo regular safety barrier inspections. This includes in-ground pools, above-ground pools, inflatable pools, spas, and some types of portable pools. If your pool or spa falls into any of these categories, it requires inspection to ensure the safety barrier complies with current Victorian standards.

  • Does the size of my pool matter?

    Yes, but primarily in terms of depth rather than dimensions. Any pool or spa with a depth greater than 300mm (30cm) requires registration and inspection, regardless of its overall size or volume.

  • What happens if I don't register my pool or spa?

    Failing to register your pool or spa with the local council is a violation of Victorian law. If discovered, you may be subject to fines. The registration requirement helps ensure all pools and spas meet safety standards to prevent drowning accidents. It’s crucial to register and have your safety barriers inspected and certified as compliant to avoid legal penalties and, more importantly, to ensure the safety of children and other pool users.

  • How can I check if the pool on my property is registered?

    You can check the registration status of your pool or spa by contacting your local council. Most councils also offer online services where you can enter your property details to check for registered pools or spas. If you’re unsure or cannot find the information online, a call to your council’s customer service line should provide the answers you need.

  • Do I need to be present for the pool inspection?

    While it’s not always mandatory for the property owner to be present during the inspection, it is highly recommended. Being present allows you to immediately address any questions the inspector might have, understand firsthand any compliance issues identified, and learn about the necessary steps to rectify them. If you cannot be present, ensure someone knowledgeable about the pool or spa and has access to the property is there to assist the inspector.
