Ensuring Clear and Accurate Depth Marking

During our inspection, we meticulously check that the depth markings in both pool and spa areas are clear, visible, and accurate. According to Australian Standard AS 1926.1-2012, pools should have depth markings at the maximum and minimum depths and at the break of slope between the shallow and deep areas. At Peak Pool N Spa Inspections, we ensure your pool or spa meets these standards, aiding in preventing accidents related to depth misjudgment.

Highlighting Transition Points

Our expert inspectors ascertain that transition points from shallow to deep areas are distinctly and compliantly marked. Clear indications help in averting accidental venturing into deeper waters. The transition areas must be gradually sloping to ensure the safety of all users, avoiding abrupt changes that could be hazardous.

Verifying Compliance for Diving Boards or Slides

For pools equipped with diving boards or slides, we check the compliance of pool depth with the relevant Australian standards. Pools with a diving board must have a minimum water depth of 1.2 meters extending at least 2 meters from the end of the board. At Peak Pool N Spa Inspections, we ensure that your pool meets these critical safety requirements, minimizing the risk of injury from diving or sliding.

Ensuring Safe and Compliant Design

Proper pool design is crucial for safety. The shallow end must be clearly marked and designed safely. We ensure that your pool depth is appropriate for its intended use, whether for lap swimming, diving, or children’s play. Pools intended for diving should have a deeper end, adhering to the 1.2 meters minimum depth requirement.

Adequate Depth and Seating for Spas

Spa safety is equally important, and we ensure the spa depth and seating allow for comfortable and safe use by individuals of all ages and sizes. Adequate depth and seating prevent accidents and enhance the relaxation and enjoyment of your spa.

Assessing Pool-to-Spa Transition

A clear and safe transition from the pool to the spa is essential for preventing slips or falls. Our inspections ensure that the pool-to-spa transition is visibly marked and adheres to safety standards, enhancing safety and convenience for all users.

Evaluating Pool Depth Consistency

Our detailed inspection also involves assessing the pool for any abrupt changes in depth that could be hazardous. We ensure that the pool depth changes are gradual and clearly marked, preventing unexpected dangers to swimmers and enhancing the safety and enjoyment of your pool.

Ensuring Accessibility for All

Finally, at Peak Pool N Spa Inspections, we confirm that the pool and spa depths meet the requirements for accessibility and use by individuals with disabilities. Proper depth considerations ensure everyone can enjoy the pool or spa safely and comfortably.
