NSW Swimming Pool Register
NSW Swimming Pool laws are changing and you are now required to register your pool on an online registry provided by the NSW State Government. By registering and self-assessment, pool owners are stating to the best of their knowledge that their pool fence complies with all safety standards and regulations.
You have until 19 November 2013 to register your pool online.
To register your pool go to www.swimmingpoolregister.nsw.gov.au
Pool inspection self-assessment checklists
To find the right self-assessment checklist you will need to know a few things about your pool:
- When was it built or installed?
- If the pool fence or means of access to the pool was substantially rebuilt or altered, when did that last occur?
- What type of pool do you have – indoor? spa pool? outdoor? portable?
- Was the pool built before 1 July 2010. If so, the rules are different if you have:
- a waterfront property,
- a small-sized property (less than 230 square metres)
- or a large property (over 2 hectares).
