To check if you have a water leak, first stop all usage of water in your home and check the dial on your water meter. If the dial is not moving, then you likely do not have a leak. However, if the dial is moving, there may be a leak. If so, it is important to determine if the leak is within or outside your home. You can do this by turning off your house valve (usually located against the house in a straight line from the meter). If this dial stops moving once the house valve is off, the leak is inside your house. If it continues to move, it is outside. Feel free to call us at (727) 588-3795 if you have any questions about how to check for leaks on your property.

Utility payments for water usage (a variable rate) and solid waste (a fixed rate) are due on the 30th of each month and may be paid (1) in-person at Town Hall, (2) at the dropbox across the street from Town Hall on The Mall, (3) via mail to Town Hall, (4) over the phone, (5) online with a credit card, or (6) through Belleair Auto-Pay. We accept cash, checks (made out to the Town of Belleair), and credit cards (with a 3.00% fee added to card payments). Late fees start at $10.00 for bills not paid-in-full by the due date. View a breakdown of the town’s utility rates and fees.
Lawn and landscape watering in Belleair is limited to once per week, per the schedule set forth by our Code of Ordinances. In the event of increased restrictions from the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD), those restrictions would supersede the town’s regulations, until rescinded. Low-volume watering (i.e., soaker hoses, hand watering) of flower beds, shrubs, and other non-lawn plants is allowed on any day and at any time, as needed.
If you believe you have a leak (or witness a break), call non-emergency police dispatch at (727) 588-3500 so the Water Department can be quickly alerted.
If you are planning to dig on your property for construction or other purposes, call 811 first so all utilities may be located in-advance of work. This hotline is a free service to callers and helps homeowners avoid costly damages.
Low water pressure can be indicative of several problems. First, check that your house valve is fully open. If water pressure is lower than usual at one source but sufficient in others, it is likely that the fixture itself and/or the pipe feeding it needs to be repaired or replaced at the property owner’s expense.
