Things to do Before You Contact us

Is my Pool registered? If not we can do it for you!

Use the Pool Safety Checklist to assist you.

No we do not expect you to know all the rules and regulations but if you are not reasonably satisfied it's compliant the odds are we won't be either.

Pool Safety Certificate

We will issue you with a pool safety certificate once compliant. Your Local Pool Inspection team are licensed by the Queensland Government to issue pool safety certificates – FORM 23 and register your pool as compliant on the Pool Safety Register.

The number of drownings is well documented, but for every one of them there are many immersion incidents that, in a lot of cases, lead to permanent brain damage due to lack of oxygen. I’m not sure which is worse! It only takes a loose lock, hinges that don’t work, a fence that you will get around to fixing one day, a chair next to the fence, etc.

Pool Safety Inspections

We know in this day and age every body is busy, busy, busy, so we are available 7 days a week. We have no qualms about inspecting on a weekend, as this is possibly the best time to catch some one at home.

It’s well advertised that if you are selling or leasing out your house, you have to have a current safety certificate. THIS IS NOT ENTIRELY CORRECT. You can sell your house without one, on the condition that the new owners agree at settlement to sign a Form 36 and to obtain a safety certificate within 90 days. It’s a standard REIQ contract obligation, however doing it this way can lead to extra bartering on price, so it’s your decision which way you go.

Pool Safety Laws

New Queensland pool safety laws introduced in 2009 aim to reduce the incidences of drowning and serious immersion injuries of young children in swimming pools. These laws affect new and existing pools.

Remember these laws are designed for children 5 and under as they don’t think the way adults do. They are very spontaneous and it only takes a few seconds for something nasty to happen. So give the Your Local Pool Inspection guy a call. We are punctual, reliable and you can be assured when you get our tick of approval everything is right, and remember nothing takes the place of supervision.

If, god forbid, anything nasty does happen and insurance companies, being insurance companies, find your pool does not comply you might find out that your public liability may be null and void.

So for peace of mind, the sooner you get a safety certificate, the sooner you can rest easy.
