Uphold Pool Safety Standards with a Pool Permit
A pool permit is required for all swimming pools and spas (including above ground & inflatable pools greater than 300mm in depth), before construction or installation work can commence.
Certify Your Regulation Compliance with a Pool Permit
Since the Building Code of Australia 2010 came into effect, new swimming pool regulations have changed the way swimming pools are built and maintained in Victoria. These swimming pool regulations are concerned with improving the safety of all pools, new and old, and pay specific attention to safety barriers around pools.
Swimming Pool and Spa owners are required by law to meet government standards regarding swimming pool regulations and are also expected to regularly maintain safety barriers around their new pool and spa in accordance with the Australian Standard AS1926.1.
Nicholson Wright can help you comply with these swimming pool regulations by providing a thorough Swimming Pool Safety Barrier assessment to ensure that all new fences and gates comply with AS1926.1.
Ensure the Safety & Security of your Pool with a Pool Permit
To comply with swimming pool regulations and obtain a swimming pool permit, all pools need to:

- Have a valid swimming pool permit / building permit,
- Be built by a registered builder,
- Employ self-latching gates,
- Comply with AS 1926.1 and AS 1926.3.
These swimming pool regulations are designed to save lives, and failure to obtain a valid swimming pool permit can lead to a significant fine. To ensure your pool complies with the swimming pool regulations, contact Nicholson Wright today.
