Pool compliance checklist

If you're a pool owner, maintaining your pool includes more than just testing the water.  Your pool fence or barrier must also be regularly checked.

There are strict laws about fence height, gate latches and other necessary inclusions, and you can learn more about these legal requirements with our easy-to-use interactive pool compliance checklist. It will help you find out whether any areas of your pool barrier need attention by explaining some basic scenarios.

This checklist tool is a guide only and not an approval or acknowledgment of compliance. We always recommend that you engage a pool safety inspector to carry out an inspection to confirm that your pool is compliant. You can locate a pool safety inspector by using our online tool 'Find a Pool Safety Inspector'.
