Pool Fill Credit

It is getting to be that season again of filling your much desired pool in the hot summer months.  Please read these helpful tips on whether it will be beneficial to you to request a read before and after filling your pool.

  1. A $40.00 charge will be invoiced on your next bill for us to get a before and after read from your meter.
  2. You will need to have an estimate of how many gallons you will be using to fill your pool.  Tallmadge residents have a 2,000 cubic foot minimum on your quarterly bill for sewer consumption.  If the gallon usage of the pool fill and quarterly usage do not meet the minimum, no credit will be given but the $40.00 charge will still be invoiced.
  3. We do not credit for water usage.  We will give credit to the sewer portion of your bill only after the 2,000 cubic foot minimum usage is used and exceeded.
  4. The City of Tallmadge Water Department needs a 24-hour notice before the first read is scheduled.  We allow two days for the fill before we come back out for the second read.  We can schedule on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  We do not work weekends therefore Thursday reads are not scheduled.      
  5. As a rule of thumb 15,000 gallons or more will be needed for you to see any kind of credit on your bill.
