Pool Safe Inspections featured in The Herald and Leader Newspapers:
TWO pools, two rules. Neither of these backyard pools has a dedicated pool fence. But in Victoria one is perfectly legal while the other fails the safety test. It’s the state of confusion that surrounds our pool fence laws and is a situation pool inspector Brett Fitzmaurice says “need to change”.
Mr Fitzmaurice, who runs Pool Safe Inspections Victoria, this week backed Leader Community News’ Make Pools Safe campaign, urging the State Government to set up a pool register as well as require pool owners to have mandatory safety checks every three years.
