Do I need a temporary pool/spa barrier?
When constructing or renovating a pool, Australian standards make it very clear that all pools must have temporary pool fencing at all times during construction.

When do I need a temporary pool/spa barrier?
If the new pool contains more than 300mm (30cm) of water it is categorised as a functioning pool. This can include rainwater accumulation that occurs during construction. Temporary fencing is required for all functioning pools; even though the pool isn’t finished, Australian and Victorian law requires a temporary barrier be placed around it.

Why might I need to use temporary pool fencing?

Do temporary fences have a lower quality than permanent fences?
