Pool safety and fencing laws

Pool safety and fencing laws
Your new pool will boost your home’s value, and provide health and wellbeing benefits to the whole family.

Although local regulations may differ, all pools in Australia must comply with national safety laws.

Your pool fence is a necessary safety feature, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be unattractive.

Before you start, check whether your state requires a building permit for a pool fence or whether the fence is covered under your pool building permit.

There may also be other local laws about pools and fencing you need to be aware of before you begin installing your new glass pool fence.
