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, it's now time to get some accurate measurements down on paper.
