Swimming Pool and Spa Inspections

All public swimming pools and spa baths of various sizes are regularly tested by Environmental Health Officers to ensure that appropriate water quality standards and practices are adhered to.

Pool operators must also be aware of the procedures for minimising the risk of Cryptosporidium in pools.  Cryptosporidiosis is transmitted through water that has been contaminated with faeces and is extremely resistant to standard levels of disinfection chemicals, such as chlorine. For specific guidelines to assist pool operators in maintaining their pools free from Cryptosporidium please click here: Cryptosporidium guidelines.

Public pools and spa baths are required, under the provisions of the Public Health Act 2010 to comply with the NSW Health Department’s Pool Advisory Guidelines.
