A peace of lifestyle luxury, now with a touch of compliance.

New legislation for the sale or lease of a property with a pool will apply from 29 April 2015. Your pool will need a valid certificate of compliance before you can sell or lease a property with a pool.

If you are preparing to sell or lease a property with a pool or spa, contact your local council to arrange a pool inspection.

The Swimming Pools Act 1992 and its regulations work together with Australian Standard 1926 (AS1926) to establish the safety standards for ‘backyard’ swimming pools. These documents have been updated a number of times and, as a result, apply differently at different points in time.

The legislation can be found here:

Australian Standard

The Australian Standard (AS1926) is a document protected by copyright and cannot be reproduced here. Your local council should have a copy of the Standard available for viewing. The relevant versions of the Australian Standard are dated 1986, 2007 and 2012.

Many councils produce excellent guidance publications that will assist a pool owner to understand the requirements of the legislation and the Standard. Some examples may be found by following the links below:


For further home pool safety information, you can contact a water safety organisation such as Royal Life Saving Australia, your local council or your local pool supplies retailer.
