When can your swimming pool be inspected?

When can your swimming pool be inspected?

Your pool can generally be inspected in the following circumstances:


  1. Where the inspection is compulsory because of the property type (multi-occupancy or tourist and visitor accommodation)
  2. As part of a local council’s adopted inspection program
  3. At your request, for example, prior to the sale or lease of your property


In the case of 1 and 2 above, your local council will contact you. In the case of 3 above, you will need to contact your local council or a private certifier to arrange an inspection of your pool.

Some private certifiers can carry out minor works to make a pool compliant with NSW swimming pool laws. For more information on the accreditation and role of private certifiers, please visit:
