Register your swimming pool or spa

Under the new Victorian regulations, all swimming pools and spas must be registered with local councils.

The regulations propose:

  • mandatory registration of all private swimming pools and spas
  • introduction of a new compliance program to improve pool and spa safety

Owners of existing swimming pools and spas will need to register their pool or spa with Council by 1 November 2020 or within 30 days after completion if their pool or spa is currently under construction.

From 1 November 2020, all new swimming pools and spas will need to be registered with Council within 30 days of the issue of the Certificate of Final Inspection or Occupancy Permit for the completed works.  Failure to register your swimming pool or spa can result in a fine being issued.

Temporary swimming pools and spas can be erected for no more than 2 consecutive days before needing to be registered with Council.  A compliant barrier is still required to be erected around the swimming pool or spa at all times while it is in use.
