How do I fill my swimming pool at a lower cost?

Renting a fire hydrant meter will allow you to avoid the sewer charges that would apply from filling a pool through your residential meter.

Another option is to install an irrigation meter, which can only be used to provide water outside the home (filling pools, watering lawns, etc.). ¬†Since water used outside doesn’t go directly into a sewer, there are no sewer charges for an irrigation meter.

Additional information is available on the How do I get a temporary meter? page.

Also, go to the Current Rates and Fees page to see the cost of installation (which will include a meter setting fee).
