Is a fully compliant permanent pool fence required for an inground empty pool, in order to get a house COO?
We're building a new house, and pool at the same time. The house and pool are under different builders and permits.
We want to get a certificate of occupancy and complete the house, but the pool is a way off completion.
We realise we have to have a fence to stop people falling into the empty pool (still under construction).
Are we able to use a construction type temporary fence?
If not, are we able to rent a pool compliant temporary fence?
Or are we required to have a full, permanent installed fence?
We are in Victoria.
Cheers + thanks,

Hi SXwallac. You can get a temp fence converted into a temp pool fence.... depending on what current temp fence type you currently have. If you've got those 6ft Mesh panels... you'll have to change them.

I suggest to consult with Balustrading company here. They are really good in this matter. I worked with them about 2 years ago. They installed my glass pool fence without a hitch. Good work.

We rented a temporary pool fence to be safe. We got the COO no problem (although that doesn't necessarily mean that it was all good: we just didn't get pulled up for it).
It did cost us a few hundred bucks, but at least it didn't delay the house COO.

We had a rather similar problem. I gather the shire are the ones to rubber stamp everything. I suggest you get them out to advise. They will be the ones to pass or fail.…
