What will it cost to fill a swimming pool?
Most swimming pool volumes are listed in gallons. The water department charges customers based on cubic feet. There are 7.5 gallons in one cubic foot. This is to say, 750 gallons in 100 cubic feet.

Example: (Example based on water passing through the main domestic water meter).

10,000 gallons is 1333 cubic feet. (10,000 divided by 7.5 = 1,333 cubic feet).
13 times $1.50 (water charge) = $19.50
13 times $1.85 (sewer charge) = $24.05
Total = $43.55

*It is these total amounts that would appear on the customers quarterly usage bills. These amounts would be added to your regular quarterly bill. It would also be advisable to use a separate sprinkler meter for filling a swimming pool, so that the sewer charges can be saved.
