What We Do
We are a Pool & Spa Safety Barrier Inspection company. We conduct inspections of your pool barrier and provide you with a ‘Certificate of Compliance’.
We provide free advice and support including ‘DIY checklists’ in preparation for an inspection.
We will guide you through the 3-step process outlined below.
From 1st November 2020 Pool owners must register their pool or spa with their local council (via their website or in person).
Councils make an assessment of the ‘applicable barrier standard’ of the Pool or Spa.
Council then provide owners with written confirmation regarding their 'Barrier Standard'.
This information is then provided to the pool inspector so they can complete the safety inspection.
An Inspector attends the Owner's home and using the Council 'registration' information completes a formal barrier inspection.
This process involves checking your existing pool safety barriers against the relevant Australian Standards.
If the standards are met you will be issued with a Certificate of Barrier Compliance.
If the standards are not met Owners are provided with a detailed report that lists all the relevant Pool Safety Information to bring the barrier up to compliance.
Once the inspection is completed the Owner must lodge the 'Certificate of Barrier Compliance with their Council.
This completes the Owner’s legal obligations.
Owners are required to obtain a new Certificate every 4 years.
Pool Safety Barrier Inspections can assist pool and spa owners to obtain Pool Barrier Compliance. We are fully qualified & Insured Pool Safety Inspectors who conduct swimming pool and spa barrier inspections.
This process involves checking your existing pool safety barriers against the relevant Australian Standards as determined by your Council. Pool owners are provided with a detailed report that lists the relevant rectifications and provides easy to understand advice in order to achieve barrier compliance.

Why is Pool and Spa Barrier legislation important?
On average, four young children die in Victoria in home swimming pools or spas each year and many more are taken to hospital for near-drownings.
The social and economic impacts that are caused by these tragedies extend well beyond those whose lives are immediately impacted. Therefore, new safety standards have been introduced by the Victorian Government to improve pool and spa safety.
Our service for pool inspections in Melbourne, Bayside, Glen Eira and Kingston are delivered by experienced professionals.
Pool and Spa Compliance
Pool and Spa owners must ensure they have a compliant safety barrier in accordance with new Building Regulations 2018 requirements to restrict access to the pool/spa area by children under the age of 5.
The property owner must engage a registered Building Inspector to undertake the inspection and provide a Certificate of Pool and Spa Barrier Compliance.
