Changes to Pool Fencing Laws
While swimming in backyard pools is a great Australian pastime for fun and exercise, it is also where most drownings and near drownings occur in children under the age of five.
Even though the weather is cooling, it is important to check that the:
- Fence and gate are in good working condition
- Pool area and barrier are compliant with current laws
- Gate is always closed and not propped open
