Public Safety FAQ's

How can I have my swimming pool filled by the City?

After obtaining a permit from the Cleveland Division of Water, you can use a fire hydrant to fill a pool. Permit cost is based on the size of the pool. Please contact your local rental center for a hose and fittings. The Division of Fire does not supply equipment to assist in accessing hydrants and does not fill swimming pools.
