Private Pools and Spas

Print this Page

In New South Wales, all swimming pool and spa owners are legally required to register their pool or spa on a State Government Swimming Pool Register.

Owning a pool or spa can be fun, but it comes with the responsibility to make sure you comply with current regulations.
 
Pool and spa owners who don’t register their pools, or whose pools don’t meet requirements, can be penalised – often by hundreds of dollars.
 
There are two options for registering your swimming pool or spa:

Compliance Certificates for Sale or Lease of Property

In addition to registration requirements, properties with pools or spas must have a valid Swimming Pool Compliance Certificate before they can be sold or rented. Swimming Pool Compliance Certificates can be issued by either Council or an accredited certifier.
