Your Licenced Pool Barrier Inspector

Pool Barrier Inspectors is a Pool and Spa Inspection Service based in Melbourne, providing peace of mind for those purchasing properties with pools. Many individuals who own pools or have just purchased a home need to be made aware if they need a maintenance inspection, renovation or repair. Rather than addressing expensive swimming pool problems at home, we recommend you contact our pool inspectors.

As certified pool barrier inspectors, we are into this consulting business to ensure your children’s safety around pools and spas. Our pool barrier inspectors will visit your yard and evaluate your home’s swimming pool/spa for hazards such as an improper fence, railing or decking.

Swimming pool safety has been mandated by the government. We consult you on how best to ensure the safety of your children through all of our work. Our pool inspector does all the safety checks, including the fence, boundary door, and window. Our certified pool barrier inspectors are highly qualified and registered with Victoria Building Authority (VBA).

How We Work

Whether you’re an existing pool owner or looking to invest in a property with a pool on the premises, our aim at Pool Barrier Inspectors is to provide you with confidence and peace of mind. Our pool safety inspections often save investors thousands of dollars by identifying non-compliance issues surrounding the pool environment in their prospective homes or spas. After inspecting your pool at home or spa, our spa inspector creates a report and provides them within 24 hours. Once the inspection is complete, our spa fence inspector will give you a written report, and within 60 days, you have to get the issues fixed and re-arrange the pool barrier inspection to complete the process.

The pool fence inspector carries out all the functions to ensure safety around the pool. Our mission is to protect young children from accidental drownings around swimming pools. We work as licensed Pool Barrier Inspectors with an aim to ensure your kids’ safety around the pool area.
