Residents have until June 2020
Residents throughout several council areas are being urged to register private pools and spas on their property by June next year after new State Government regulations came into effect at the start of the month.
As part of efforts to reduce the number of fatal drownings in private swimming pools and spas, the State Government has put in place new mandatory safety regulations for private pools and spas.
The new regulations require residents to register their private pool and spas with their local council.
Every four years pool and spa owners must also have a registered building surveyor or inspector certify that their safety barrier is compliant and undertake any repairs as directed.
It includes all permanent pools and spas, and most relocatable pools capable of holding water to a depth greater than 30 centimetres.
