Resources

If a Victorian residential pool or spa has a depth of 30cm or more (300mm), it is required to be surrounded by safety barrier. This includes inflatable pools. All pools and spas built after 2010 require a four sided barrier (isolation fence), with no direct access from the house or any other building to the pool or spa:

  • Safety barriers must be a minimum of 1.2 metres high.
  • Barrier gates must be self-closing and self-latching.
  • It is illegal to leave a pool or spa gate propped open.
  • Climbable objects such as pot plants, eskies, pool pumps and chairs must be moved away from the barrier.

Permits

A building permit is required before installing a new pool, spa, or barrier. This permit needs to be issued by registered building surveyor. Building work must start within 12 months of the date that the building permit was issued. During construction, if a new pool is filled with more than 30cm of water it must have a temporary safety barrier put around it.
