Pool Safety Inspections, Certification & Consultancy
A1 Pool Service cares for your safety and the safety of others. With pools, this starts with the Safety Barrier.
Statistically one of the leading causes of death of children under the age of 5 is drowning in backyard pools.
In 2010 one standard was brought into Queensland for pool safety, it covers such things as the height and strenghth of the barriers, mandatory non-climbable zones, gates and their latching requirements, and preventing direct access from a building into a pool area.
All swimming pools and spas in Queensland must be on the pool register, and also comply to the current standards.
Who is required to obtain a certificate?
- You must have a certificate in effect before leasing any property with a nonshared pool.
- A property with a nonshared pool may be sold without a certificate, but the seller must give the purchaser a Form 36 Notice of no certificate before entering into the contract for sale.
- When buying a property with a non-shared pool (house) that doesn’t have a current certificate, you must obtain one within 90 days after settlement.
- A property with a shared pool (unit or townhouse) may be sold or leased with no certificate, but for a sale you must give the prospective buyer a Form 36 Notice of no certificate before entering into the contract for sale. You must also give a Form 36 to the body corporate and QBCC before settlement (or the new lease). The pool owner (body corporate) must obtain a certificate within 90 days after settlement of the sale (or the lease).
