Should I contact Pool Inspect Victoria first?
No. The first thing you need to do as part of the pool inspections process is contact your local council to register your pool or spa. You’ll receive a letter from them, and based on the age of your pool, you’ll be given information about when your inspection needs to be completed.
Once you have that information, you can get in contact with us and we’ll arrange your inspection – usually within a couple of days.
How long does an inspection take?
The inspection generally takes less than an hour.
Do I need to be home while the inspection is carried out?
Not unless we need you to provide access to the pool area, or doors and windows form part of the safety barrier which need checking.
We’ll discuss this with you when you arrange your inspection.
How long does it take to get my compliance certificate?
If your pool is compliant, you’ll receive your certificate within a day or two.
What if my barrier doesn’t pass the inspection?
If your pool doesn’t comply, we’ll provide you with a report letting you know what needs to be done. You’ll then have 60 days to complete the work and have the pool re-inspected. If the barrier is still not compliant, we are required to notify your local council.
