New Sewage Use Bylaw


As per the CIty Of Ottawa “Sewer Use” Bylaw we can no longer discharge pool water containing salt to the storm sewer. This affects how we close pools as as follows:

Non-salt water pools: For a pool that does not use salt, we will pump the discharge water through a de-chlorination device and the water is pumped onto the customer’s property or City storm water system.

Salt water pools: no pool water with salt can enter the storm sewer system and must be pumped onto your property. However, if you have a direct connection to a sanitary sewer you may be able use that to lower pool water. In any case, it is the owners responsibility to lower pool water 2” below the lowest return fitting(s) before our crew shows up to winterize the pool system and install your cover.

Benson Pools assumes no liability for the discharge of any pool water. The current fine for discharging salt water to the storm sewer is $10,000.
