Free pool safety inspections available this summer!

Council will be offering free pool inspections from Tuesday, 1 December 2020 to Friday, 26 February 2021

Mayor Tyson Golder said that pool safety is vital to ensure a safe environment for everyone.

"Council is encouraging all residents to take advantage of this free service as regular inspections are important to ensure pools comply with safety standards," Cr Golder said.

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 laws apply to you.

For pool owners wanting to obtain a Pool Safety Certificate following a successful compliance inspection by Council, the State Government fee of $41.05 will remain payable.
