A guide to plunge / pre cast pool approvals

Updated: Jul 14, 2023

How to simplify certification for projects with a plunge pool

Smaller pools for flexible backyard options and quick project delivery are a growing industry trend in Brisbane and surrounds. Building Approvals and Advice (BA&A) support construction industry professionals and homeowners. 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.
