Swimming pools and spas
Swimming pools and spas in premises providing sexual services must comply with the Public Health Act 2010 and Public Health Regulation 2012. Read NSW Health's Public Swimming Pool and Spa Pool Advisory Document and fact sheets.
Pools and spas should be regularly inspected, repaired and maintained. When poorly maintained, they can cause infection.
Only use plastic drinking cups in pools and spas.
Swimming pools and spas must be registered with the local council and council officers may undertake routine inspections, including taking water samples. Don’t allow anyone to use a pool or spa unless the water is disinfected.
Local councils and public health unit officers can prohibit the use of the pool if it is a risk to public health and can issue improvement and penalty notices (fines).
