How much it will cost to fill your swimming pool or spa will depend on the size of the pool.
The average garden hose uses 25 litres per minute so on average, running your hose for one (1) hour = approx. 1500 litres.
As a guide we have put together an estimate of what you can expect to see on your water account on top of your typical bill.
Please note: Please use these figures as a guide only. Figures are based on 2023/2024 fees and charges.
When topping up your pool you should never leave your hose submerged in the pool water as this creates a cross-connection which may allow your pool water to be drawn back up the line.
Always leave an air gap between the hose and the pool.
All backwash water should be directed to the sewerage system with the discharge at no more than two (2) litres per second.
Under no circumstance should backwash wastewater be directly discharged to the environment or to the stormwater system. The wastewater is extremely harmful to the environment and promotes weed growth in natural bushland areas.
