About me

I’m a Victorian Building Authority registered Building Inspector specialising in Pool Safety Barriers. I’m a qualified building surveyor and have most recently been working with a Master Builder in Melbourne as a site supervisor and as a building inspector here in Geelong.
On a personal note I have a young family and became passionate about specialising in Pool Safety Barriers while supervising my Daughter at a friend’s house while visiting. I saw the state of their fence and began helping them immediately to rectify the faults to provide a safer space for the whole family to enjoy.
I love what I do and hope I can help your loved ones to stay safe too!

Once all non-compliant items are rectified and fixed please get back in touch with Ripple Pool Inspections to book a time for Re-Inspection to receive your Form 23 Certificate of Compliance.

What you need to do, 4 step process.

Step 1 - Register your Pool OR Spa with the council

You’ll find links to pool compliance checklists & council links on our Helpful Resources page)
All Victorian pools and spas were due to be registered by 1 November 2020. This is different to having your pool inspected. Visit your local council’s website & send a request for your pool or spa details. They will send you a letter with information about your own pool or spa’s construction date and the applicable Australian Standard / Building Regulation.

Step 2 - Book an inspection

Book a time and date with Ripple Inspections to have your pool or spa fence inspected to assess your full pool safety compliance. Our registered pool inspectors will visit your property to carry out a complete comprehensive inspection of your pool or spa barrier in accordance with the relevant Australian standard. If your barrier is fully compliant, you will be issued with a pool or spa barrier compliance certificate. If there are any issues with your pool or spa barrier, we will outline each of these items in a clear and detailed written report.

Step 3 - Fix any Non Compliant Barrier Items

If your Pool OR Spa safety barriers do not comply work must be completed to ensure compliance. Once you’ve made the necessary rectifications we must re-inspect your pool or spa barrier within 60 days from the initial inspection date, and once it complies we will issue a Form 23 Certificate of Barrier Compliance. For more detailed information contact Ripple Pools Today.

Step 4 - Submit your Form 23 with your local Council

If your Pool OR Spa safety barrier complies you can then lodge the certificate of barrier compliance with your local council within 30 days. You will then need to have your swimming pool or spa barriers inspected every four years and the team at Ripple Pool Inspections can help with every step of the process.
