Frankston residents have been reminded they must register their swimming pools and spas with their council by November 1 after the State Government extended the original deadline because of the impacts of COVID-19.

After registration, an independent building surveyor or inspector must check that the pool and spa barriers meet safety standards, but Frankston City Mayor Sandra Mayer stressed that residents would not be penalised if they couldn’t have an inspector to their home because of Stage 4 restrictions. “You can still register now and have the pool or spa inspected at a later date when restrictions are lifted,” Cr Mayer said. “There is no need to worry.”

Pools or spas – even temporary ones – need to be registered with your council if they’re capable of holding more than 30cm of water. A $79 registration fee has been set by the Government. Once registered, the pool or spa will need to be inspected every four years and the owner will need to lodge a compliance certificate with the council.

“Registering and maintaining your pool or spa is a small price to pay to ensure it is safe, especially with many families spending extra time at home,” Cr Mayer said. “Backyard drownings are preventable through making sure your pool, spa and safety fence are up to standard and climbable objects aren’t left close to barriers.”
