Royal Life Saving NSW CEO Michael Ilinsky is calling on all backyard pool owners in NSW to "Be Pool Safe" and sign up to the NSW Swimming Pool Register.
"It is critical all pool owners register their pools so councils and water safety educators can more effectively communicate with pool owners to try and halt drownings.
"There are over 300,000 pools across NSW. Royal Life Saving NSW believes that in a number of areas as many as 1 in every 2 pools simply doesn't meet safety standards.
