A guide to plunge / pre cast pool approvals

Updated: May 22

How to simplify certification for projects with a plunge pool

Smaller pools allow for flexible backyard options and quick project delivery. They are a growing industry trend in Brisbane and surrounds. Building Approvals and Advice (BA&A) support construction industry professionals and homeowners with plunge pool certification. Alongside our concrete/ fibreglass pool service, we specialise in modular, spas, pre cast and plunge pools. Arrange your hassle free approval and ensure your plunge pool + barrier projects are delivered, safely.

Meeting the mandatory requirements, no speedbumps!

  1. Plunge pools and spas can be filled once a satisfactory fence inspection and a Form 16 has been issued (more here).

  • If a Build Over Asset (BOA) application or siting variation (relax) applies to your plunge pool project, this can be facilitated by BA&A as you require.

  • The QUU asset map can be a timesaver for detailing pipe size and location of nearby sewers/ stormwater infrastructure (or for Unity Water - check here).

2. Compliant safety barriers are essential. A retaining wall can be used as part of swimming pool fencing, so long as it complies with the requirements of QDC MP3.4 and AS1926.1.

3. SPASA information about mandatory electrical work applicable to plunge pool / pre cast pool installations in Queensland here.
