Before you start

So, you’ve got a new pool, and now you need to put in a fence.

Before you get started, here are some things to consider:

Your local council or building authority will guide you to the correct laws that govern your location.

Building Surveyor

It’s a good idea to consult with your building surveyor that issues the building permit for your new pool, to discuss the requirements of the pool fencing.

By meeting with the surveyor onsite, they can run through any tricky points and difficult areas to fence, you’ll get expert guidance from the person that will issue you your compliance certification.

Before you schedule a meeting with the surveyor, draw a quick sketch of the area to be fenced, place the location of the gates on the sketch and any issues that you are aware of that you need a solution for.

Once you have met with the surveyor and you have a good idea what you can and can’t do, its now time to get some accurate measurements down on paper.

This was nothing but a perfect retail experience. Being in Alice Springs we're used to getting either overcharged or under cared for. After my first phone call with Exakt, Jason politely said he was with a customer and would call back in 10 minutes. I'd had this before in Alice and never had the return call - alas, 9 minutes later Jason was on the line. Jason and I discussed my needs and 20 minutes later I had a quote. I settled the account that afternoon and the products were on the truck the very next day. I received the goods, all in order in a shorter time frame than what I would have received the quote, let alone goods normally. Go with these guys if you want someone that cares for about having a point of difference - being good customer service and responsiveness.
