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.

Brett and the team from Pool Safe Inspections Victoria are committed to providing the best service possible for their valued clients. We work with real estate agents, homeowners, and pool owners in the hospitality industry to ensure their pools are safe through our comprehensive pool inspections. Greensborough tenants, owners’ corporations, and landlords can also seek out our advice.
With requirements to arrange a pool safety inspection every four years, pool owners may also find themselves in need of swimming pool safety certificates when they buy, sell, or renovate. Boundary fences can form a part of your pool barrier (as long as they meet the necessary requirements) and so any changes made to your fencing may require a new certificate.
Spas, in ground pools, and above ground pools will all have different considerations, and each must be evaluated by a registered building inspector. As long as the pool has more than 30 cm of water in it, then it will need a compliant safety barrier. This may mean that new pools require temporary safety barriers during construction.
Whether it is a new pool, or an old spa, we provide the pool safety certificates Greensborough locals can rely on to meet their obligations, and also to enjoy peace of mind. If you are not sure whether you need a pool safety certificate, then you can browse through the Victorian Building Authority self-assessment checklists available on our website, or contact our team for further advice.
