Free pool safety inspections end on 31 January 2019

Maranoa Regional Council is advising residents to take advantage of the free domestic pool safety inspections, before they end on 31 January 2019.

Residents can make sure their pool is compliant by contacting Council and booking a free inspection, normally valued at over $280.

Councillor Wendy Newman, Portfolio Chair for Planning & Building, said pool safety and regular inspections are essential for pool owners.

“Appropriate precautionary measures such as a pool safety inspection should be taken to avoid possible pool dangers,” Cr Newman said.

Swimming pools include an above or below ground structure principally used for swimming or bathing, including some types of portable pools and spas.

For pool owners wanting to obtain a Pool Safety Certificate following a successful compliance inspection by Council, the State Government fee of $38 will remain payable.

To book a pool safety inspection, please contact Council’s Building Certification Team on 1300 007 662.
