    Default What would you do? Unfenced pool

    I just wouldn't go there until it was fenced.

    Some councils have a clause where if it is an old house and old pool I think they are not classified as illegal. Don't quote me on it, just remember something about it when we where putting our pool in. There is a date where all NEW pools had to have a fence up, but that doesn't cover the older ones. Again, don't quote me on it, just saying

    I would be taking a stand with the issue - until it's done, they can come to you.

    So long as the pool met all council requirements re fencing etc don't take this the wrong way but it's their house and if they don't want a fence up they shouldn't have to. You don't live there, they do.

    As for pool safety well I'd just watch my child like a hawk when over there.

    In the original legislation pools built before 1991 were exempt, but amendments were passed in 1994 to make pools build before 1991 be brought into line with fence legislations.

    All pools must now have fencing. I just wouldnt be going over there until a fence was up.
    I personally would report it. What happens if i neighbours child falls in and drowns? They would be up on huge charges.

    I think it's a bit bossy to demand a fence by the time bub is born. There's no danger until bub starts rolling/crawling. How about you draw the line then?

    This, or don't visit them there. That's your choice.
