Pool Maintenance & Safety Certificates

By Luke O'Kelly

A pool is a great asset to any property but we all know that along with the enjoyment of the pool comes the pool maintenance.

If a pool is included as part of the property generally the tenant is responsible for the day-to-day maintenance such as clearing of leaves, chemical testing & top up, along with keeping the water level maintained.

It is recommended that a pool service company be engaged regularly to monitor the pool to ensure it is kept healthy and clear.

If a pool is left unattended or neglected it can turn green quickly. If your pool starts to show signs of discoloration or your pool equipment stops working for any reason, please contact your pool service company and/or property manage to report the issue.

Pool Safety Requirements & Pool Safety Laws

Pool fences and safety barriers must be maintained to prevent young children from drowning or injury.

It is a requirement that a Property Owner ensures a pool is correctly fenced and a Pool Safety Certificate issued. A Pool Safety Certificate must be issued before a property is leased.

Certificates last two years for non-shared pools. I.e for a house and one year for shared pools or pools that form part of a unit complex.

A Pool Safety Inspector will inspect the pool and advise if the pool complies with the standard. If the Pool complies a certificate will be issued. If the pool does not comply the Inspector will issue a nonconformity notice and provide 20 business days to allow for the necessary repairs to be completed.
