We've done some sums to help you work out how much it will cost to fill or top up your pool or spa.

Tips for using this page:

  • Please use these figures as a guide only.
  • These amounts are an estimate of the extra charges you can expect to appear on top of your typical bill.
  • Filling a swimming pool will not have a large impact on your sewerage usage charges as these are capped at 740 litres per day
  • The average garden hose uses 25 litres per minute.
    Running your hose for 1 hour = approx. 1500 litres.
