What is a Swimming Pool?
A swimming pool is defined as any above or below ground structure principally used for swimming or bathing, including portable pools and spas. If the structure can hold more than 300 millimetres of water then the swimming pool safety laws will apply, the laws do not apply to structures such as fishponds.
