Celebration!!!

I will be having Champagne any second now - even though it is a DD!!

DH has just passed his Pool Fence Inspector Legalese Exam (he passed the practical the other day). There are very strict pool fence laws in Australia - and even more so in Queensland, where we live. New regulations, has meant that more people have to become qualified.

Every single pool in the state has to be registered and licenced by 2015 - any house that is being rented or sold or built with a pool must be licensed before it can be rented or sold! Licences need to be renewed every 2 years for a private residence & 1 year for a communal pool in a complex - so hopefully plenty of business!!

Sooooo proud of him - he hated doing the 'legal/book work' side of the exam and thought he would fail - in fact he got 98.3% only 1 question wrong!

So now he gets to start his new career!

BRAVO!

I hope you two had a WILD celebration party!

(I also like the idea of having carefully secured access to pools.)

JUDDD cares about calories. JUDDD does not care what you eat. Your body probably does.

Congratulations to your DH on passing his testing and having this new career! Enjoy your champagne. LOL

I've never heard of licensing people's pools before. Is this just for constructed swimming pools in their yards, or does this also include ornamental garden pools, goldfish ponds, cattle/livestock watering pools, stocked fishing ponds, etc.?

Sounds like you are still going strong and doing well with JUDDD! Woo Hoo!

Thanks All!

Pat - I think it is mainly constructed pools (and it makes me laugh - as we have friends who live on a lake - but their pool requires fencing!!)

However, a paddling pool would also count if it was left up permanently - or something along those lines! DH now knows all the rules!!!
