Pool fence and gate inspections
Coral Coast & Burnett Pool Inspections provide pool safety, fence and gate inspection services. Our qualified inspector is dedicated to making sure your pool meets all required regulations.
Our inspection services are carried out in accordance with the Pool Safety Standard in the Queensland Development Code section MP3.4, and all other standards outlined under the Building Act 1975 for the safety of persons using a regulated pool.
If your pool area, fence and gate is compliant we will issue a pool safety certificate on the spot. We can also send you a digital copy of this document after the inspection.
Use our pool safety checklist to make sure you have the best chance at passing your inspection the first time. This checklist should be used as a guide only.
