Make Sure Your Pool is Safe this Summer
The top five issues that cause pool and spa barriers to be non-compliant with Australian Standards include:
- Gates and doors that are no longer self-closing
- Gates and doors that are no longer self-latching
- Gates that are propped open
- Ground movement
- Climbable objects near the pool barrier
Check with your local council regarding fencing requirements and to get your pool fence certified.
Remember to always actively supervise your children within arm’s reach when they are in or near water. Supervision is only for adults, do not rely on older children to watch younger children. Learn CPR and take refresher classes regularly.
If you have a small or portable pool that holds less than 30cm of water, remember to always empty it out and store it away.
