Apply for a pool or spa filling permit

Level 2 restrictions now apply

If you want to fill a swimming pool or spa that holds more than 500 litres of water, you need a permit. This applies whether you're filling a new pool or refilling a pool after repairs.

You don't need to apply for a permit if your pool holds under 500 L of water, for example a 'kiddie pool'.

How we'll assess your application

We'll only approve requests for a permit to empty and refill a pool where it's unavoidable, so please check the current water restrictions and apply BEFORE you empty the pool.

As spas must be emptied and refilled to ensure water quality, we may provide a permit to cover you for several spa refills (for spas under 1,500 L only).

We'll assess your application and tell you whether you're eligible for a permit or if we need more information. If you're eligible, we'll send you your permit, including any conditions you must meet before you can fill your pool or spa.
