There are more than 25,000 backyard swimming pools built in Australia each year – and Melbourne makes up a good portion of those brand new pools. And for every pool, there needs to be a safe, secure and certified pool fence.
At Jim’s Fencing, we are here to give you peace of mind when it comes to your kids, their friends and anyone else who may be at risk. You may also need a Melbourne pool safety certificate if you’re planning to rent or sell your home.
As well as our professional pool fence installations, Jim’s Fencing offers pool safety inspections and evaluations across Melbourne. When you get advice from a Jim’s Fencing inspector, you can sit back and relax, knowing your family and friends can safely enjoy their time in the water.
There are plenty of reasons you may need a pool safety inspection. Perhaps you are looking to sell or lease your property and need to make sure everything is certified, safe and up to date. Or maybe you have just renovated and want to be sure that your remodel hasn’t affected the safety of your pool fence.
Regardless of the reason you need a pool safety certificate right now, it all comes down to one key motivation: keeping your kids, friends and family safe around the water.
All pool fencing regulations in Melbourne are the minimum standards required to make sure no child is ever at risk.

Every state in Australia has different rules about when you need to have your pool inspected and how often it needs to be rechecked.
In Victoria, pool owners must have their pool inspected at least once every four years.
In Western Australia, pool owners must have their pool inspected at least once every four years.
In South Australia, all pools and spas must be inspected two months after the complete installation of the safety fence.
In Queensland, a pool safety certificate is only required when a property is sold or leased.
In Tasmania, the only legal requirement is that you have an approved pool barrier in place.
In the ACT, pool safety certification is needed on completion of the pool fence.
In New South Wales, a pool certification needs to be conducted every three years.
However, these are only the legal minimum requirements for pool safety inspection in Melbourne. You may choose to have a pool fence inspection at any time, for your own peace of mind or to provide evidence your pool has the highest possible standard of safety.
This doesn’t just apply to in-ground swimming pools, either. In Melbourne, proper fencing is required for all of these categories when over 30cm deep:
