Pool Safety

What classes as a swimming pool?

A swimming pool is defined as an above or below ground structure principally used for swimming or bathing, including some models of portable pools and spas.

If your portable pool or spa can hold water at a depth of more than 300 millimetres, then the new laws apply to you. Pool laws don't apply to fish ponds.​
