Pool Sure QLD

Pool inspection specialists

If you are selling, leasing or short term renting your property with a swimming pool you will require a Pool Safety Certificate. Mark is licensed to carry out pool fencing repairs at the time of inspection, often eliminating the need for a re-inspection if non-compliant items are found. This means just one call to Pool Sure simplifies the process from inspection to swimming pool compliance.

We service all areas of the Sunshine Coast, Noosa and the Hinterland.

What We Do

Gate latch and hinge adjustments, minor trimming of climbable vegetation and replacing the odd missing fasteners are normally done at the time of inspection at no extra charge.  There are no hidden costs such as added GST, second inspection charge, testing extra gates or overpriced CPR signs.

Our pool inspection reports are concise and detailed, they include photos and suggested rectifications of non-compliant issues. Should the repairs be more involved we can supply a quote along with the non-conformity notice.

Our pricing for repairs is sustainable which is why we are the Sunshine Coasts longest operating pool safety inspection business. You will also have the peace of mind that we understand the laws and will ensure the repairs meet the requirements of the pool safety standards.

Pool Inspections For Everyone

Pool Sure Qld provides pool safety inspections for all types of properties across the Sunshine Coast. Different property types have different regulations about how frequently your certification needs renewing. It pays to check with an expert – whether you have a single home swimming pool or a large resort pool, we can help.

Drowning is one of the leading causes of death in Queensland for children under five, and compliant pool fencing, along with active supervision and learning to swim, can save lives. This is why pool safety laws were introduced.
