Pools and spas

BASIX assesses pools and spas based on:

  • the location of the pool– indoors or outdoors;
  • the size (volume) of the pool or spa in kilolitres;
  • whether the pool or spa has a cover
  • whether the pool or spa is shaded
  • if you will be using a tap connected to a rainwater tank for pool or spa top-up (selection found on the Alternative Water Details page)

Note: If you have a combined pool and spa, enter the pool and spa capacity separately, as if the pool and spa were built separately.
