About Us

We are licensed pool and spa barrier safety professionals

Victoria’s largest and most trusted team of licensed building inspectors specialising in pool barrier safety.  Having certified thousands of swimming pool and spa safety barriers to date, we pride ourselves on providing a comprehensive service, with integrity, honesty, transparency and punctuality our key values.

Our mission is to protect young children from accidental drownings around swimming pools and spas.

Since 2000,  27 young children have drowned in private pools and spas in Victoria. In at least 20 of those cases, the coroner found the safety barrier was non-compliant.  To reduce the chance of further tragedies occurring the new mandatory Victorian government requirements require:

  • Landowners to register their private pools and spas with their local council; and

  • Arrange for the periodic inspection and certification of their safety barriers once every four years.

Our friendly team of experienced, accredited and fully-insured Building Inspectors are licensed by the Victorian Building Authority to inspect and certify pool and spa safety barriers to ensure they meet Australian Standards®.  We are also licensed to issue a Certificate of Pool and Spa Barrier Compliance to satisfy your local council requirements for compliance.

We offer a fixed price service to help you obtain your Certificate of Pool and Spa Barrier Compliance, and our simple and easy process has been digitally optimised to get you certified as soon as possible, confirming your pool or spa safety barrier is safe.  We issue certificates of compliance on the same day of inspection where applicable.

Where necessary, we are happy to help you identify practical, cost effective solutions for any repairs that may be required to bring your safety barrier up to scratch.  We provide highly detailed reports for all inspections on the same day of service, outlining any issues identified, and written recommendations to rectify, as well as recommended tradespersons should you require any assistance.

Our talented team are all police checked, fully vaccinated, and are available to service both residential and commercial properties across all of Victoria.

Excellent, honest service. Efficient, reliable and a common sense approach ensure a seamless process for the customer. As a landlord living in Sydney, I couldn't be happier with Damian and his team in Melbourne. They took the stress out of a very stressful situation. Highly recommend.read more
