If you’re lucky enough to have a swimming pool, you’ll probably have spent a lot of time in it and made the most of a hot and humid summer. Enjoying your pool – and maintaining it – are probably a big part of your life.
But have you made sure it’s covered by insurance if something goes wrong?
Make sure the cost of rebuilding or replacing your pool is included in your Sum Insured calculation. With Vero policies, permanent pools (usually in-ground pools) are covered by your Home policy, but portable pools and spa pools are covered by your Contents policy.

If you're new to pool ownership, seek expert advice
If you have a pool or a spa, the best protection is to keep up with maintenance and ensure you’re caring for your pool appropriately.
If you’ve recently purchased a new home or installed a new pool, it’s a good idea to seek expert advice to ensure that you take the right steps to care for it.
Regardless of whether your bach is a high spec designer’s dream, or furnished with three generations worth of hand-me-down furniture, the place you make your memories is worth protecting.
