Everything you need to know about the Swimming Pool register

Pool owners are required to register their swimming pools and spa before 29 October 2013 by visiting the NSW Swimming Pool Register Website at www.swimmingpoolregister.nsw.gov.au or face fines between $220 and $2,200.

To register a pool, pool owners will need to know:

  • Physical address of the pool and/or spa
  • Type of property such as a private residence, multi-unit or tourist accommodation
  • When the pool/spa was built
  • If the pool barrier has been substantially modified or rebuilt and when that took place

The NSW Government has developed a flier to assist the public called "Everything you need to know about the Swimming Pool register" which you can download here.
