NSW Swimming Pool Register

All pool owners are required to have an email address. After entering your email address, you will be sent an email with a link to continue the pool registration process. Check your junk mail if you have not received this email. You must be the owner or authorised representative of the property to register a pool.
You will be required to complete a checklist for the type of pool you own, then go back in to the Swimming Pool Register to complete the registration. Council staff may be able to assist you if you do not have access to a computer.
Links for the checklists are available below to help streamline this process:
- Indoor Pools
- Spa Pools
- Outdoor Pool - Large Property - 2 hectares or greater
- Outdoor Pool - Small Property - less than 230 sqm
- Portable or Inflatable Pool
- Outdoor Pool - built before 1 September 2008
- Outdoor Pool - built between 1 September 2008 and 30 April 2013
- Outdoor Pool - built after 1 May 2013
Your pool can generally be inspected in the following circumstances:
- When the inspection is compulsory because of the property type (ie multi-occupancy or tourist and visitor accommodation).
- As part of a council’s locally adopted inspection program.
- Before your property can be sold or leased (Note: this only applies from 29 April 2016).
- At your request.
A council officer will contact you and make an appointment to inspect your pool if you are subject to either 1 or 2 above.
You will need to engage a private pool certifier or your local council if you require a pool compliance certificate for either 3 or 4 above and will require a fee.
