How Our NSW Swimming Pool Compliance Service Can Help You

Posted by Neale Johnstone on February 2nd, 2021

Having a swimming pool in your home is a big investment for your family. As a result of this, it is important that you take the time to find a reliable private swimming pool inspector to make sure you get a great result every time. It would be even better if you have someone who can check over your pool during all seasons and not just in winter months when it is more difficult to detect problems. You can find several of these personal swimming pool inspectors listed in this article.

Private inspectors can help you get a non-compliant swimming pool certification. Some of them may also perform periodic inspections and offer repair services as well to make sure your pool adheres to the local government regulations. For your own convenience, most local pool inspectors offer a self Assessment checklist on their site to help pool owners assess their compliance level. You can also choose to receive an online self-assessment on your pool's compliance status.

There are several local and state government agencies that work to help with new laws for safety. Some of these agencies offer certification and licensing for pools that are according to a common property code that is published in your area. If you have a strata scheme in the United Kingdom, it is important to check and see if your pool complies with the common property code. As soon as you know that your pool is according to a common property code, it would be easier to purchase and install a good quality pool heater. The British thermal system is quite effective and also comes with a safety device that turns on automatically in case of low temperatures.

The next best option is to have the swimming pool owner complete a Non-Compliance Check List (NCL). You may already have the list on hand or you may create one on your own. An NCL contains all the required information for you to know what you should do next. The first step to take when you receive a non-compliant NCL is to contact your local authority and get them to carry out the appropriate checks and inspections.

If your pool is not compliant, you will need to send a letter to the local council that governs your strata scheme. In most cases, the governing body will inspect and re-inspect your swimming facility. At this point, the issuing of a certificate of Compliance or Non-Compliance will be carried out. The certificate of compliance is valid for a certain period of time and is attached to the owner's licensing certificate. It will serve as proof that you managed to keep your swimming pool clean. On the other hand, a certificate of non-compliance remains on file and you have the obligation to inform the relevant authorities of any changes in its status.

In the past, it was almost impossible to enforce compliance with safety standards because swimming was not such industrial activity. But, with the gradual growth in the industry, it has become increasingly difficult to ignore possible risks and hazards. The last two decades have seen a significant increase in both the number of people taking up swimming as a hobby and the number of pools with professionals in charge of its maintenance. If you wish to have your swimming pool compliant and stay in compliance, you should talk to a certified private strata planning consultant who can help you.
