Here is some information you should be aware of when installing a swimming pool or spa in Ipswich:
Knowing the Safety and Planning Laws for Ipswich
Pool safety and planning laws are enforced in every state and territory, but they do differ depending on where you live. This is what you should know about the pool safety and planning laws that apply in Ipswich.
Before your new pool can be built, you will need to obtain a development approval (building permit) from a licensed building certifier, and you will also need to display a warning sign. You will not be able to fill your pool with water until you have been issued a final inspection certificate for permanent or temporary fencing by a building certifier. Your new swimming pool or spa must have a compliant safety barrier surrounding it as stated under the Building Act 1975.
Failing to meet the above criteria may see you being issued a fine. Your pool builder should write up a domestic contract that you will need to read in full to ensure you agree to all the terms and conditions outlined. If you agree, you will then sign it along with the pool builder. Make sure this is done before any construction starts.

Which fibreglass pool is best suited to me in Ipswich?
Deciding which pool to choose has to be the hardest part of installing a pool. With so many colours, add-ons, and styles, it can be hard to know where to start! Worry not, our team makes the process easy and will work through all your options with you to find the pool of your dreams. Some things to consider that can make your decision simpler is your budget and how much room you have or are willing to dedicate to a swimming pool.
This can help narrow down your choices. If you have a modest-sized backyard, your pool can only be so big, and some good choices include swim spas and plunge pools. If you are lucky enough to have a big backyard, you can essentially have your swimming pool as large as you’d like, and a family pool may be suited. It’s a good idea to establish what you will mainly use the pool for, this way it will cater to your swimming needs and you’ll likely use it more.
Can I use my pool all year round with Ipswich’s weather?
While Ipswich does have beautiful weather for most of the year, for some, when winter approaches, the swimming pool becomes a no-go zone. There is a way you can enjoy your pool every month of the year without having to grin and bear icy water. A heating system can extend your swimming season and allows you to use your pool comfortably. The great thing about pairing a heating system with a fibreglass pool is they insulate and retain heat for far longer than some other types of swimming pools.
There are a few different heating options out there and each comes with its pros and cons. If heating is something you’d like for your swimming pool, it’s best to investigate all the options to find the ideal fit for you and your pool. As Ipswich’s winters and here and gone before you know it, it’s likely you won’t have to use your heating excessively, which can minimise your running costs.
