Why You Need a BASIX Certificate of Compliance in Sydney

The NSW government instituted a method of assessing homes to promote a greener environment. The BASIX assessment helps to determine whether or not a home, pool, or spa will use too much energy or too much water. The Department of Planning and Infrastructure sets specific targets that your new pool must meet to be in compliance. In addition to scores for water and energy usage, there are scores for heating and cooling loads. The idea, of course, is to ensure that a homeowner can enjoy the benefits of having a swimming pool but also be responsible for how much additional energy and water is used as a result of its construction.

The Basics of BASIX and Swimming Pools

Any homeowner building a new dwelling or a swimming pool of any size must be in compliance with BASIX. If a homeowner is lodging plans with a local council as an addition or an alteration, there must be compliance with BASIX if the pool volume is greater than 40,000 litres. The BASIX requirements regarding the installation of the pool depend on its size, the type of heating system intended, and the homeowner’s location in the water target zone.

What We Need to Conduct Your BASIX Pool Assessment

As a qualified BASIX assessor, we will provide you with a full definition of the BASIX assessment process as well as quality, fast service.

The cost of a BASIX pool assessment will vary and depends on such things as the site conditions and the complexity of the design. As you can find on our website, our fee for a pool or spa assessment typically begins at $75 and our fee does not include any government charges that the NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure requires (a $25 administration fee).
