Frequently asked questions about Qld Pool Regulations
Will I receive a fine if I don’t register my pool?
If the department is notified of un-registered pools an on-the-spot fine of $200 may be issued or a maximum court penalty of $2000.
My spa has a fully lockable, solid cover. Do I still need to have a complying barrier for the spa, and why?
Yes. There is still the potential for the lockable lid to be left open or unlocked. For this reason, a complying pool safety barrier is required for spas and some portable wading pools.
Do I need to register my outdoor spa?
Yes. If you have a residential swimming pool or outdoor spa, you must register your property’s information with the department.
Do I need to register or fence my portable wading pool?
The new laws do not apply to portable pools if they:
- hold less than 300 millimetres of water; and
- have a volume of less than 2000 litres; and
- have no filtration system.
All three criteria must be met to be exempt.
