Huntington Beach Havasu
Has anyone ever put a agricultural meter water on their home?? Do you really save $$$$$ with a pool?
sewage charge is determined by your Avg. water usage between Jan 1st and March 31st each year...................don't fill pool during this timeMine is $538 for the city meter and $510 for the back flow valve installed by a certified person.
I do not have to run a new line up to the house. I have heard horror stories about the sewer charge for homes with pools.
Great I will tell my snowbird to shower once a week to save me $$ during the summer.sewage charge is determined by your Avg. water usage between Jan 1st and March 31st each year...................don't fill pool during this time
Conserve all water during this time period and your bill will be as cheap as it can be through out the year
was the meter still $900 from the city?Yes Keith you are right but here is the real world in Havasu or most cities.
1. Meter installed by the city today.
2. Now I need to have the backflow preventor put in by a cert plumber.
3 Then I have to have a another person test the backflow preventor.
4. Now I get my water turned on to the pool.
5. Every year I have to have the backflow preventor certified.
Keith run for office and get things moving in the right direction.
WAIT A DAMN MINUTE: Sorry Keith , My bill is a joke. I have a pool and good lord I have grass in my yard)eek) My actual water consumption would be nothing bulb but I like my house, if the city is looking at raising the cost again :|err I guess it's time to move onSeems like a simple and cost effective way to make this situation right is like this. the city
could figure out what the real average "water" cost to keep the average Havasu pool full
is and then simply figure a credit for not putting that amount of water into the sewer system. This would eliminate the need for all the the meters and other hassles but do you think that will happen. Sorry, but thanks for playing!
The pool fill should not be subjected to the sewer charge. Before filling a pool you call the city with your meter reading, and then again after. The amount of water used is deducted from the amount that is billed against sewage. Maintaining the pool is another story though, as the water used for it will be billed.While I am putting in our new pool I will have all the outside water faucets and pool fill on this meter. They just completed the sewer in my area about 8 months ago and do not want problems later with high sewer charges for the pool fill.
