Level 3 Water Restrictions – You Still Need A Pool Cover
Despite the City Of Cape Town reducing water restrictions down to level 3 you need a pool cover if you want to legally be able to top up your swimming pool.
Read the full official level 3 water restrictions report here.
“Topping up or filling of swimming pools with municipal drinking water allowed subject to 1) the pool being covered with a non-permeable solid pool cover when not in use and 2) the recovery of backwash water and the use of rainwater for pool topping up where practically possible.”
” Summary of Level 3 water restrictions include:
An increase in the personal water use limit from 70 to 105 litres per person per day.
A resetting of the overall city water usage target from 500 million to 650 million litres per day.
Removal of Level 5 restriction measures applicable to residential properties using more than 10 500 litres per month.
A lowering of tariffs to Level 3 tariffs. ” (source – http://www.capetown.gov.za/Family%20and%20home/residential-utility-services/residential-water-and-sanitation-services )
