Building permits

While all Australian states agree that pools must be fenced, the specific rules associated with installing your fence differ.

In some cases, the value of work performed including materials and labour determines if you require a permit, if in doubt call your local council to discuss the requirements.

Depending on where you live, you may need a separate building permit to install or upgrade your pool fence.

In most states and territories if you make significant changes to an existing pool fence, you will need to comply with the latest Australian Standard, you may have held exemptions covered under old pool fencing standards that may be lost if you make changes to your existing fence or barrier.

Your local council or state government building authority will be able to provide advice on permits and local pool safety regulations.

Should you be required to submit planning applications to council you will also need to engage a building surveyor for final fencing sign off.

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.
