Yes, that’s correct; our price is just $85 plus safety certificate. In fact, we are so confident it’s the lowest price that if you happen to find a better price with equal or better conditions, we will do your pool safety inspection for free and we do not charge for a second inspection (provided you have gone through our basic checklist and ticked them all off). All you pay for is the government charge for the pool safety certificate – that’s our best price guarantee.
Franchises available Statewide
We do not expect you to know all the rules and regulations but if your pool doesn’t pass the basic test it won’t pass an official inspection. That’s why it’s important to click on our basic checklist link and go through it.

Things to do Before You Contact us
We will issue you with a pool safety certificate once compliant. Your Local Pool Inspection team are licensed by the Queensland Government to issue pool safety certificates – FORM 23 and register your pool as compliant on the Pool Safety Register.
The number of drownings is well documented, but for every one of them there are many immersion incidents that, in a lot of cases, lead to permanent brain damage due to lack of oxygen. I’m not sure which is worse! It only takes a loose lock, hinges that don’t work, a fence that you will get around to fixing one day, a chair next to the fence, etc.
We know in this day and age every body is busy, busy, busy, so we are available 7 days a week. We have no qualms about inspecting on a weekend, as this is possibly the best time to catch some one at home.
It’s well advertised that if you are selling or leasing out your house, you have to have a current safety certificate. THIS IS NOT ENTIRELY CORRECT. You can sell your house without one, on the condition that the new owners agree at settlement to sign a Form 36 and to obtain a safety certificate within 90 days. It’s a standard REIQ contract obligation, however doing it this way can lead to extra bartering on price, so it’s your decision which way you go.
New Queensland pool safety laws introduced in 2009 aim to reduce the incidences of drowning and serious immersion injuries of young children in swimming pools. These laws affect new and existing pools. For example your pool fence needs to be well maintained, your pool fencing needs to be at least 900mm away from objects that would allow a child to climb over, the bottom of your pool fencing needs to be less than 100mm off the ground among other aspects.
Remember these laws are designed for children 5 and under as they don’t think the way adults do. They are very spontaneous and it only takes a few seconds for something nasty to happen. So give the Your Local Pool Inspection guy a call. We are punctual, reliable and you can be assured when you get our tick of approval everything is right, and remember nothing takes the place of supervision.
If, god forbid, anything nasty does happen and insurance companies, being insurance companies, find your pool does not comply you might find out that your public liability may be null and void.
So for peace of mind, the sooner you get a safety certificate, the sooner you can rest easy.
