Frequently Asked Questions
How is Usage Calculated?
Our readings are based on water meter readings received by Zelienople Borough, Harmony Borough and Pennsylvania American Water. We do not bill for a unit of usage unless a full 1,000 gallons was used.
What is a Deduct Meter
If you are watering your lawn, power washing, or filling a pool a deduct meter is recommended. A Deduct Meter is attached to the line going to the outside hose bib and will keep track of the usage that did not go down your drain. The amount used that was a full 1,000 will be subtracted from what your total water usage was for the billing period. We sell them at cost for $183.00 and once installed by a plumber we will need to inspect the installation prior to reading.
Filling a Pool?
We offer a one-time credit for filling a pool. Pictures are required to show the pool empty and during the filling. Once filled pictures and dimensions are needed to determine the appropriate credit.
Note: We will only approve one pool filling credit. We recommend a deduct meter if large quantities are used often. Please see “What is a Deduct Meter”
