The Pool Inspector will be on-site for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Any findings that do not meet the compliance requirements are recorded in a Non-compliance Report and provided to the Pool Owner.
The owner has 6 weeks to rectify these issues.
Once all standards are met, we file a Certificate of Compliance with NSW that is valid for 3 years.
From 29 April 2016, properties for sale with a swimming pool or spa pool must have a relevant Occupation Certificate, Certificate of Compliance or a Certificate of Non-Compliance issued from the NSW Swimming Pool Register. Failure to obtain a certificate will delay the sale of your property on the market.
In addition, for new leases of properties with swimming pools or spa pools signed after 29 April 2016, the landlord must provide the relevant Certificate of Compliance to the tenant at the time the residential tenancy agreement is entered into.

In fact, Councils are not staffed to handle the high demand for swimming pool inspections in NSW. In many cases there is a 4 week or more wait for Councils to inspect your pool, which can delay the sale or lease of your house resulting in loss of income for you as a homeowner or landlord.
In addition, Councils often provide less time to make the rectifications and do not provide a clear report on the issues that need to be rectified. Councils can also issue fines and enforcement notices on the spot for swimming pools that are not in compliance.
