Pool Inspection Services

A pool inspection service is something you want to get right the first time. Whether you are selling your home or renting it out, recourse for not having had a proper inspection is not something you want to deal with. Child safety is paramount and forms part of the fabric of our society. I pride myself on performing a thorough inspection to ensure your peace of mind and the safety of all concerned.

There are many checks a pool inspector must perform during your inspection. One of the most important ones is the gate operation. Gates need to operate and meet many specifications as the following examples show:

  • Open away from the pool.
  • Close from all position including from 1 inch.
  • Not get caught on pavers or grass when opened the full arc.
  • Be 1200mm high.
  • Pass the “squeeze” test.
  • Horizontal bars must be a minimum of 900mm apart and that’s just to name a few.

Posts are checked to ensure they pass the rigidity test and the trusty tape measure is used prolifically instead of leaving it to the eye. Photographs and video are taken as a record of the state of the premises at the time of the inspection. If you are renting your house it is important that your tenants know their responsibilities and the requirements they must abide by to keep the property safe for all concerned. For example, BBQs and pot plants propped up against the pool fence are a big non-compliant. Tenants can be relaxed on these rules and can feel the laws are just another imposition on them by the owner. Impress upon your tenants the importance of abiding by the pool safety laws for children safety and issue a notice of breach when diplomacy has failed.

If ever you are in doubt about your pool complying or it has been some time since you had an inspection, a consultation inspection might be just the ticket for you. I offer this service at a discounted rate because there is less paperwork involved than when a certificate is issued. The added bonus of this type of pool inspection service is that you aren’t required to get me back for a second visit. If you attend to the non-compliant items as set out on the report I issue on the day, your responsibilities have been met. Of course I am more than happy to come out for a second visit for a nominal fee if you want to be doubly sure.
