Swimming Pool Inspections 

The Shire of Chittering undertakes 4 yearly inspections of all swimming pools on properties in gazetted Townsites (Bindoon & Muchea). 

Our Building Surveyor inspects the condition of the following:

  • Swimming pool gate
  • Swimming pool fence
  • Objects around the swimming pool fence
  • Skimmer boxes

To do a self assessment you can use the Home Pool Safety Checklist as provided by Royal Life Saving or visit Home Pool Safety for more information.
