Swimming pools - time to get with the program

For those of you with swimming pools you will need to get with the program or sooner or later the Government is going to get you.

Since October 2013 it has been mandatory in New South Wales for pool owners to register their swimming pool and/or spa pool.  Pools should be registered at www.swimmingpoolregister.nsw.gov.au.  It is already the situation that if you do not register you can be fined.
