To inspect all swimming pools in the City to ensure compliance with the Swimming Pools Act and associated standards.
Pools will be inspected in the following order of priority:
inspect swimming pools following an application for a compliance certificate
inspect pools following receipt of Customer Action Request regarding non-compliant fencing.
inspect pools on receipt of notices from a private certifier.
inspect pools associated with the tourist visitor accommodation and multi residential developments.
carry out random inspections on a street by street basis, with streets selected based on the first letter of the street name, with the letter selected randomly.
Swimming pool inspections are charged the regulated fee of $150 for an initial inspection, with a singular additional $ 100 fee to cover all re inspections.
This approach is seen as being the fairest way to inspect pools across the city without passing compliance costs on to residents who don't have a pool.
