Melbourne Pool Inspections
BBC Melbourne Pool Inspections is a SPASA certified pool inspector covering all of Melbourne metro and regional Victoria. We provide detailed written pool & spa inspection reports with professional advice and follow up certification to ensure your pool and spa safety barriers are compliant with State Government laws.
Victorian pool & spa owners are required to have their safety barriers inspected and to lodge a certificate of barrier compliance with their council. If a safety barrier is not compliant, it is the owner’s responsibility to make the barrier compliant. We are an accredited SPASA certified Melbourne Pool Inspector and can assist you with ensuring that your safety barriers are compliant with local council requirements.
Victoria introduced tougher pool safety requirement on the 1st of December 2019, that requires any landowner that has a pool or spa on their property to register their compliant pool or spa with their local council. It is now mandatory for owners of land where a swimming pool or spa is located to register their pool or spa with the relevant council. The new pool safety laws apply to swimming pools and spas that are capable of holding more than 300 mm (30 cm) of water. This includes permanent pools, above ground pools, indoor pools, hot tubs, bathing or wading pools and some relocatable pools.

Why Do I Need to Register?
On average, four young children die in Victoria in home swimming pools or spas each year, and many more are taken to hospital for near-drownings.
The social and economical impacts that are caused by these tragedies extend well beyond those whose lives are immediately impacted. (More information is available upon request).
These regulations are aimed at protecting young lives.
For your own financial security you should understand that compliance with legislation is an important aspect to any home public- liability insurance.
