Swimming Pools and Hot Tubs

Proper methods for draining your pool and hot tub protect the storm water system.

In order to maintain swimming pools or hot tubs, many people drain them annually. The water from your pool or hot tub must enter your sanitary service. It can only be released on your lawn if it does not enter the storm system. Residents found draining their pools or hot tubs into the storm water system can be fined under The City’s Utility Bylaw as this is an illegal act. Learn more about proper drainage and care for your hot tub or pool below.
