How pool certifiers keep homeowners within the law to enjoy safe fun

Moving into a new family home can be a stressful experience, with so many things to consider. Will the kids make friends and will they enjoy their new school. How soon will everyone grow into their new surroundings and will your previous furniture suit its new surroundings, are just some of them.

Of course, it’s always sad to say goodbye to the old place, as you will be saying goodbye to so many memories. The pool and its surroundings saw the kids grow up and stage so many happy events. Before selling, it is essential to get in touch with some of the best experienced swimming pool certifiers Sydney has to offer for many important reasons.

  • Before any pool and spa can be used, it must be registered under the Swimming Pools Act 1992 as enforced by the New South Wales Government in 2013. Any property that is sold and has a pool must hold a valid compliance or non-compliance certificate, which only a qualified Sydney swimming pool and fence certifier can issue following an inspection.
  • The laws have been put in place to ensure the safety of youngsters minimizing risk so that they are able to have fun and the parents can relax. If in any doubt after moving into a new property, it’s never a bad thing to call the certifiers for a once over and clarification.
  • A sale can depend on having the inspection successfully carried out, so those selling or leasing need to be aware of the law, which also covers spas, or indeed any vessel that can be filled to a depth of 300mm or more, though spas that are emptied after use are exempted.
  • There is no need to worry if any doubt if the pool or spa meets the requirements as the professionals will soon allay any fears by offering the best advice on rectifying any issues that may not reach the required standards. Getting things right will assist with the sale and ensure the buyers that they are purchasing a property from responsible owners.
  • The Certificate of Compliance will last 3 years, before it should be renewed, allowing peace of mind to the owners of the property.

For the safety of all who use a backyard pool, and to ensure that any future owners can enjoy fun within the law, it is essential to have a valid Certificate of Compliance issued by qualified certifiers under NSW law.
