New NCC Regs for New Pools Imposing the use of Pool Covers

Recognising the need for energy improvements on pools, the NCC (National Construction Code) recently updated and tightened the need for swimming pool covers on new pool constructions from 2019.

The new code states that a pool cover is a mandatory requirement where a pool has either a gas heater or heat pump installed, even if the pool also has a solar heater.

Given the introduction of this legislation related to new pool construction, it is only a matter of time before this condition is also made for existing pools.

How is your pool cover looking? If you have a heater connected to your pool, you should have a quality pool blanket designed to retain the heat. A standard see through 'blue bubble' pool cover is not enough. Talk to our experienced staff about what cover solutions would best suit your needs.
