Having a pool safety certificate on the Gold Coast reassures you that your pool environment is safe and equipped to reduce risks of drowning and accidents. It is also a requirement when buying, selling or leasing a house with a pool. If you have a new or existing pool, it will also need an upgraded certificate to comply with the latest regulations. However, if you do not meet all the requirements, it is possible to fail your inspection, in which case you will not receive a certificate. If this has happened to you, keep reading to find out what to do next.
MY POOL WAS DEEMED NON-COMPLIANT. NOW WHAT?
If the pool inspector finds that your pool does not meet the standard safety requirements, you will be issued a non-conformity notice. However, you can avoid being served with this notice if one of the following conditions are met:
-Re-inspection is conducted two days after the initial inspection, and pools owners meet compliance; or
-An agreement is reached that repairs will be carried out within 20 business days from the original inspection.
