10 Years Auditing Pool Barriers with Local Government
Qualified & Registered Building Inspector with VBA
Consulted with DELWP
We inspect under the mandatory pool barrier inspection requirements for maintenance of all existing Victorian Swimming Pools and spas. You will be provided with a certificate on the day if your pool/spa barrier is compliant with Victoria’s regulations on pool fencing.
Victorian Regulations state that a pool must be safe and have restricted access at all time, not just some time during the day. The only way to make sure a pool is Pool Safe 24/7 is by having permanent pool fencing erected.
Every state in Australia have their own set of regulations, however the basic principles remains the same. Pool fencing regulations in Victoria have been established on those same safety principles, which apply to all Victorian towns and cities including Melbourne.
Yes you can. The new requirements set the boundary barrier at 1.8 metres.
Yes under AS 1926.1-2012 you can. You must have a Building Surveyor assess an application and issue a building permit
Yes you need a building permit issued and a Building Inspector pass it.
No it doesn’t. You need an independent barrier and have it inspected.
Unfortunately not all powder coat fences are not build with the same high quality standards. You can perform a simple test by squeezing two vertical members together to see how rigid your fence panels are. If you can open gaps either side by more than 100mm, they may not meet minimum manufacturing standards.

New laws now govern the safety of swimming pools and spas within Victoria. If you own land (residential property, tenanted property, accommodation) on which a pool or spa is located, then you must comply with the relevant requirements.
Whether you are seeking to meet these requirements, or have any concerns regarding the current safety of your pool, then please contact our team to ask about our pool inspections. Campbellfield locals can expect a prompt response, however, we always recommend allowing plenty of time, in case modifications need to be made before your pool barriers can be declared safe.
We are qualified and registered building inspectors with the Victorian Building Authority, and have many years of experience working and consulting at local and state government levels to ensure pool safety in Victoria.
When purchasing a property, you will probably arrange for a building inspection. Why not book a pre-purchase pool safety inspection as well? We can let you know if there are any issues or points of concern, and if everything is in order, then we will issue you with the pool safety certificates. Campbellfield locals are then on the right track to meet their requirements of having their pool inspected and certified every four years.
Not only does an inspection help you to meet your responsibilities, but it also gives homeowners and landlords greater peace of mind.
