Swimming pool inspections are the best way to guarantee pool users’ health and safety. Whether you are a homeowner, landlord or property manager, it is your responsibility to ensure that you comply with safety requirements and the best way to do this is by getting your pool inspected. What’s more, you need to make sure that the inspections are carried out by a licensed pool inspector on the Gold Coast. This will help provide a clear picture of any existing or developing issues that need to be attended to.
To help you get the most out of pool inspections, here are some essential questions to ask when getting pool safety inspections on the Gold Coast:
Question #1: How Can I Find Out Whether My Pool Is Registered?
On the Gold Coast, and the whole of Queensland, you need to visit https://my.qbcc.qld.gov.au/s/pool-register to register or check whether your pool is registered. If your pool isn’t registered, follow the instructions on the page to register your pool.
Once the pool is registered, you can search for a pool inspector and organise to get your certificate of compliance certificate.
Question #2: Must A Pool Safety Inspector Be Insured and Licensed?
Compliance inspection companies and inspectors need to be insured and licensed to carry out their services and they will always provide you with a report. An unlicensed inspector may not be able to identify the necessary swimming pool’s potential risks and is thus a risk to the safety of those using the pool.
Question #3: Can I Get Repair Services From Pool Compliance Inspectors On The Gold Coast?
An inspector can conduct minor repairs but only if there is an agreement between the pool owner and the pool safety inspector. Not all pool safety inspectors on the Gold Coast are qualified to do this.
Question #4: How Long Will The Pool Safety Inspection Take?
It all depends on the style and size of your swimming pool or spa. There are different issues for different types and sizes of pools. For a standard backyard pool though, the inspection can take anything between 60-90 minutes, and you can expect the inspection report within three days from the date of the review.
Once the pool safety inspection and safety compliance have been completed, the certifier will provide you with the certificate of compliance if your pool is compliant.
If the swimming pool poses any risks to your family or the public’s safety, a non-compliance certificate will be issued to the local authority and you have 90 days to fix any issues with your pool before another inspection is conducted.
