Man Installs New Swimming Pool, Gets $6,000 Water Bill

A Brevard County man loves his brand-new swimming pool, but the cost of filling it has sent him off the deep end. He just received a water bill for more than $6,000.

It takes 11,000 gallons to fill Hugh Chin’s pool. But the city of Palm Bay said, in December, when Chin filled the pool, he used one million gallons and they sent him a huge bill.

Chin had the pool built in early December, filled it with water in late December, and then got his water bill.
