If your pool isn’t registered you can be fined up to $2,611. If you fail to rectify a non-compliant pool, local governments can issue on the spot fines of $934 for individuals and up to $2269 for companies.

Owners also need to be aware that any person who props open a pool gate can be liable for an on the spot fine of over $450.

All Building Pool and Pest Inspections can register your pool for you or you can telephone Queensland Building and Construction Commission on 139 333.
