Pool and spa safety barriers save lives.
That's why new laws require pool and spa owners to register with Council by 1 June 2020 and get their barrier checked every 4 years.
Between 2000 and 2019, 27 young children drowned in private swimming pools and spas. In at least 20 of those cases, the non-compliance of the safety barrier is likely to have played a role.
Even relocatable swimming pools or relocatable spas that has been in place for 3 or more consecutive days need to be registered.
