Swimming pools are one of those magical elements of a home that instantly increase the value of a property. As certified Pool Safety Inspectors on the Gold Coast, we encourage you to consider pool fence safety should you be buying, or are the owner of, a house with a pool. If you are putting an offer on a property with a pool, check to see if the current owner has a current Pool Safety Certificate; and if not, organise a pool fence inspection as soon as you can so that your family and friends can enjoy wonderful times in a safe environment.
Professional Safety Pool Inspections
Pool Safety Inspections need to be conducted thoroughly by accredited and experienced professionals, otherwise, you may be left with one very costly problem. A pool safety inspector is able to make sure the pool fence and its surroundings are compliant and safe for your family and any visitors who wish to take a dip in your pool during those warm Australian summers. After all, the main aim of pool safety inspections is to certify that backyard pools do all that they can to prevent drownings.
A Home Inspector Is NOT A Pool Safety Inspector
Quite often, homebuyers get in touch with us about problems with their pool because they believed their building inspector would cover pool inspections. However, most building inspectors don’t have the expertise or certification to certify pools. Please make sure you check for the disclaimer about covering pools in building inspection reports.
What Does A Pool Safety Inspection Entail?
Once you engage a pool safety inspector, he or she will need to start by inspecting the area surrounding the swimming pool, thoroughly inspecting the fencing, gate, surrounding structures, signage and other safety issues.
A pool safety inspector aims to check for anything that may compromise the pool and pol fence’s safety. They will make notes for any repairs or replacements needed and provide you with a full report of their findings so that you can take the necessary steps trectify any non conformity issues in order to ensure its safety, if required.
