For the purposes of the Act a swimming pool is defined as any excavation, structure or product containing water over 400mm deep that is used or is capable of being used for swimming, wading, paddling or bathing and includes spa and inflatable pools.
All swimming pools must be fenced. Swimming pools must remain empty until an approved complying fence is installed. Contact your local council for more details.
It is recommended that where possible swimming pools and the immediate swimming pool area are surrounded by isolation fencing to prevent through fare of young children from the house to the swimming pool.
The fencing must comply with the Fencing of Swimming Pools Act 1987 and the Building Code.
Note: Narellan Pools will erect temporary fencing during the installation of every swimming pool. This fencing can be hired to customers for a longer period if required until their permanent fencing is in place.
