Not surprisingly, fibreglass pools are considered some of the most desirable additions to any home in Western Australia. Indeed, a lot of Perth residents delight in taking a long and refreshing dip at the end of a tiring day. If you plan to have a pool installed in your backyard, then you should consult the proper authorities about all pertinent regulations. The Real Estate Institute of Western Australia reminds homeowners that with pool ownership comes several important responsibilities.
