Steps To Take



You have a pool

You've heard about the new Legislation

You want to know what you need to do ... All Clear will endeavour to clear this up for you; sorry it's corny, we like the playful play on words ...


The first thing is to take a look at the Pool Safety Council website and work out what type of pool you have. Whether it is a non-shared pool, for example a single regular household with a pool for its own use; or a shared pool in an establishment offering short term accommodation, for example motels, etc.; or whether it is for mixed use of both short term and long term accommodation. The term of the Pool Safety Certificate and the dates by which they are required, vary according to the pool's usage. Additionally, it is necessary for properties with pools, being sold, to have a current Pool Safety Certificate or for the vendor to supply a form notifying the purchaser that the pool has not been safety certified. As the 8th July 2011 extension has now passed it is required that all properties with pools, being rented, have a current Pool Safety Certificate in place.

The next thing to do is to register your pool on the Pool Safety Council list of pools. This must be done by November 2011. It is easy to do, just log on to the website and follow the prompts.

Pool Safety Inspections BarrierIf your pool is a shared pool, you'll have noticed on the Pool Safety Council website that the phase in period has lapsed and shared pools are required under the Legislation to already have a Pool Safety Certificate (deadline was 31 May 2011 ).  Mixed usage pools have until 30 November 2012 to have a Pool Safety Certificate and non shared pools have until 30th November 2015 to comply with the new laws.

A list of some initial steps you might care to take towards making your pool enclosure compliant can be found on the Pool Safety Council website.  Even if you don't need your pool inspected for a while, it would be reassuring for you to know that you've made it as safe as you can, in the meantime.
