The main purpose of regulating private swimming pools is to ensure they are maintained and operated in a manner that reduces risk to public health and safety. Council's role is to monitor the standard of operations of swimming pools. Compliance with Council's requirements will assist you in providing a safe and hygienic swimming environment for your customers. If your specific questions are not answered on this site, contact Council.
