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.
