Based in Mowbray, we’re able to offer a same day service at a great rate. For residential, commercial and tourism properties, our pool safety inspections Port Douglas are comprehensive and follow a staged approach, as follows.

  1. Initial pool safety inspection. In conjunction with this, we inspect the pool itself, as well as all surrounding landscaping and infrastructure, including fences, chairs, tables, trees and shrubs. Why is this important? The purpose of Queensland’s pool safety laws is to reduce the risk of drowning and immersion injuries, for children under 5. So, while you might have a pool fence, it might not be compliant. It might be too small or have adjacent furniture or landscaping, providing climbing access over the fence. Once the inspection is complete, we prepare a comprehensive report, which is issued to you within 24 hours. The next step, is dependent on our findings, as follows.
  2. Issue a non-conformity notice. This is if we find your pool is not compliant with pool safety laws, following our pool safety inspection Port Douglas. If you’re non-compliant, it means your pool isn’t safe and you can face fines. As well as letting you know you’re not compliant, we’ll provide appropriate advice on the things you need to do, to get compliant.
  3. Re-inspection. This is only required if you have received a non-conformity notice. The purpose of this is to ensure you have addressed the items which were not compliant, at the initial inspection. NB: If you don’t request a re-inspection within three months of the initial inspection, then we’re required to submit a copy of your non-conformity notice, to the Douglas Shire Council.
  4. Issue a pool safety certificate Form 23. This confirms that the findings of our pool safety inspection Port Douglas, were such that your pool is compliant with all relevant safety laws. In Queensland, it’s a requirement of property owners to ensure they have a current pool safety certificate, when selling or leasing a property with a regulated pool.
