Last chance to register pools and spas

Owners of pools and spas are urged to register them to help prevent child drownings and to avoid a substantial infringement.

Victorian Government regulations now require all property owners to register their pool or spa with Council and have it inspected and certified every 4 years by a registered building surveyor or inspector. In Victoria, pools and spas are the most common location for drowning deaths of children aged 5 and under.

Despite registrations being due in November 2020, we believe more than 4,000 Boroondara pool and spa owners are yet to register. To avoid a substantial infringement, please register your pool or spa now via our easy online form.

We’ll then contact you to confirm your registration and outline the next steps. If you’ve already submitted a registration and are awaiting confirmation, you won’t receive an infringement. Please don’t submit a second registration.

We thank the more than 6,300 householders who have already submitted their pool or spa registration.
