The Sunshine Coast pool certification experts

Swimming Pool Certifier work with you and your client to ensure pool compliance. 

If a pool is found non-compliant, our reports contain specific information, instructions and suggestions for maintenance and trades people to follow.

The Queensland Government Pool Safety Improvement Strategy found rental properties were alarmingly over-represented in the statistics, with a six month ‘danger’ period of being at a new home.

Therefore the laws are most harsh with rental properties and a certificate must be in effect before entering into a new or renewed lease.

Safety specifics spas

Spas capable of being filled with 300 millimetres or more of water, have a volume of 2,000 litres or more and a filtration system, are covered by the new laws.

However, this does not include bathroom spas used as baths. 

Non-shared pools

Different rules apply depending on whether the pool is a shared or non-shared pool. 
If a pool is only accessible to residents of one dwelling, such as a private house or a private spa on a unit balcony, it is a non-shared pool.

Before entering into a new or renewed lease for a property with a non-shared pool, the owner must ensure a pool safety certificate is in effect for the pool.

Shared pools

If residents of two or more dwellings can use a pool, such as a body corporate pool, it is considered a shared pool. All pools associated with hotels, motels, backpackers and guesthouses are shared.

For shared pools, the owner must give the tenant a copy of a Pool Safety Certificate if one is in effect, or if there is no certificate in effect, the owner must provide a Notice of No Pool Safety Certificate — Form 36.
