Drowning scares the sh1t out of me, and it's definitely one thing I prefer to be over cautious about!

Look, I do agree it's ridiculous. But I also think those Clark rubber pools are obviously big enough to be of concern, and should be fenced.
Just my opinion.

A toddler could drown in a wading pool, which is why they all say to use only under adult supervision. So I understand why pool fencing regulations were changed to include temporary pools like the clark rubber ones. They are large, and for a small child/toddler they would be difficult to get back out of if they weren't familiar with the pool or a good swimmer.

So councils require that they be fenced. They would probably love to fence all bodies of water but there is a limit.
Just because one is impractical and may have knock on consequences for the larger community doesn't mean we shouldn't legislate for the safety of the ones that can be controlled.
I'm just not following your logic. Kids drown even when adults are supervising. It's devastating and I have no idea why anyone would even question this.

So this is my backyard, it's fenced all the way around, and the entry into it is actually a pool fence with a child proof gate. If the pool was back there do you think it would be safe and would you bother with the whole building approval/safety cert/registering the pool thing for that little Clarke rubber pool?

Alternatively, this is my patio. Again it's fences all the way around, only access to the public is up stairs and through a child proof gate, BUT if I put the pool on the patio, we'd have to raise the door handle on our door so our kids couldn't let themselves out there.
Both possible ideas. I'm beginning to think it's not really worth all the effort

Not worth the risk regardless of the pool size in my opinion so I would fence it or not get one and use the local council pool, I can however see how it does seem a bit like double standards when the pool or canal can pose a drowning risk but one has to be fenced and the other not...
