Knowing the Safety and Planning Laws for Port Macquarie
Throughout Australia, there are varied pool fencing laws enforced and pool owners must adhere to them to ensure their pool is safe and to avoid being issued a fine. Here is what you need to know about the pool safety and planning laws that apply for all pools in Port Macquarie.
Before installing a pool or spa, you will need approval from council first in most cases. This is something your pool builder should take care of on your behalf, so you don’t have to. They will lodge a Developmental Consent Application and wait for the approval. A certifier may need to assess the site to ensure there are no existing pipework where your new pool will go and they will evaluate the condition of the yard to determine whether it is safe to install a pool or not. Once this is complete and given the green light your pool construction can start. The Swimming Pools Act stipulates that pool owners must have their pool registered on the NSW Swimming Pool Register and all pools and spas with a depth of more than 300mm that can hold 2000 liters of water must have a compliant pool fence in place that meets the current Australian Standards. It is the pool owner’s responsibility and duty to ensure that the pool fence is in working order, there are no objects in the climbable zone and that it is locked when not being used.

Which fibreglass pool is best suited to me in Port Macquarie?
Fiberglass pools are extremely popular due to their easy maintenance and modern designs. The interior is smooth and glossy which makes it hard for algae and bacteria to attach and grow. This means you’ll spend less time and money cleaning them than other types of swimming pools. Fiberglass pools are straightforward to install and you could be swimming in your new pool in a matter of a week. In Port Macquarie, you’ll find an expansive variety of fiberglass swimming pools and the one that is best suited to you is one that ties in with your home and swimming requirements. It’s best to keep this in mind when looking for a pool to ensure you get the most use out of it. More often than not, those who have bigger backyards tend to have larger pool styles such as our Brampton and Billabong regardless of whether they have a family to cater to or not. Large pools appeal to many and are a crowd favorite as they don’t have restrictions on their use like some smaller pools do. Those on blocks with limited space usually opt for modestly sized pool styles such as plunge pools and swim spas. Both are larger than a spa and allow for swimming as well as relaxation. They are a great choice for couples and smaller families. Having a pool in the backyard is not only an option for people with big backyards, but there are also pools to suit the smallest of courtyards and when done well, they can add valuable dollars to your home. Our experienced team can offer helpful advice on which pool types are suited best to the layout of your home and lifestyle.
Can I use my pool all year round with Port Macquarie weather?
Port Macquarie offers a humid subtropical climate ¾ of the year. With weather like this, you can enjoy your pool comfortably throughout the year except for the winter months. While some people may enjoy swimming in cold water, most of us don’t. The good news is you don’t have to stop using your pool whilst waiting for the warm weather to make an appearance, you can install heating.
