Why does Council’s Swimming Pool Inspection Program include random inspections?

The aim of the  new legislation is for all swimming pools within NSW to be inspected to ensure  they are protected by a child proof barrier designed to Australian Standard  requirements.  To inspect the 8,400  swimming pools located within the Hornsby Shire and within a reasonable time  frame (5 – 7 years) a combination of mandatory and random inspections need to  be undertaken.
