Loads of great reasons to check your pool safety
Winter is the perfect time to look over your pool to check its safety. Our pool safety officers are here to help make sure your family and visitors are safe.
They provide practical advice on how to make any necessary modifications and repairs to your pool to make them comply, as easily and cost efficiently as possible.
Our pool safety officers are making their way to every pool in the shire, to check they are safe Ð we have checked over three thousand pools so far.
Get on the front foot and download a free swimming pool safety checklist that shows everything our officers will be checking when they visit your pool.
You can access the checklist at Swimming Pool Register online www.swimmingpoolregister.nsw.gov.au/checklists
If you use the checklist before your inspection, youõll know what to expect and may even have sorted things out before we get there (saves the $100 reinspection fee).
While youõre at it, you have to register your pool or spa (most other residents have) - it only takes a minute and is really easy! Register your pool at the www.swimmingpoolregister.nsw.gov.au
The State government requires that we all register our pools and spas and that any unregistered pool is subject to a $220 fine.
If youõre not sure if your pool is registered, you can check at www.swimmingpoolregister.nsw.gov.au/pooldb/pglookuppool
If you lease your property or are looking to sell, is a really important step to have a valid compliance certificate for your pool or spa (it is like a roadworthy for a car).
To book a pool compliance certificate inspection call Council on (02) 6670 2400.
Note, Council is here to help and we do not issue fines for any property that books inspections and fixes any issues within a reasonable timeframe. Join the vast majority of other Tweed residents who have made sure their pools are compliant and are helping keep kids safe by taking these easy steps.
