Getting the right permits: What you need when installing a pool?

By James Brown

If you've always dreamed about installing a pool at your Caboolture real estate, there's no time like the present to turn these thoughts into reality. But before you start digging in your backyard, be sure to check out the council requirements for such an installation, and be sure to fulfill all the legal permits necessary to create a safe environment. 

The Moreton Bay Council defines a swimming pool as anything that can be filled to a depth of more than 300mm, has a volume of over 2,000 litres, or has a filtration system. If your pool meets any of these specifications, you're required by law to get building approval from a private building certifier for both the pool and the fence surrounding it. 

Keep these things in mind, as some of the pools people can buy from shops will meet these specifications. The council can issue fines for any properties that are found violating these laws, so keeping yourself covered legally should be a top priority. 

Furthermore, remember that repairing, adjusting or making additions to the pool or fence could also require a permit. Check out your obligations before pursuing any changes to your swimming pool.
