With the pool safety compliance deadline just around the corner, some pool owners will want to do significant work to their pool fence.
Pool owners can already do some repairs and maintenance on a pool fence without building approval. Some owners can do further works without building approval provided they have the work inspected by a pool safety inspector (PSI).
This applies to work on a barrier for an existing non-shared pool for a class 1a building (house or townhouse), and there are limits for fences over two metres in height.
In the lead up to the 30 November deadline for the single pool safety standard, there is likely to be demand for your expertise as a pool safety inspector (PSI) like never before.
All owners of regulated pools need to ensure their pool barrier is compliant with the safety standard by 30 November 2015. A current pool safety certificate is only required if an owner is selling or leasing the property.
