RULES & REGULATIONS
Water is covered by the community's HOA dues, and is relatively carefree. Sun Cove does not have unlimited water rights, but the rights it does have are above average (119.26 million gallons a year).
However, there are two main regulations to be aware of.
Serious over-usage (due to a leak, etc) could lead to a fine. At the beginning of every month, the Association staff does a read of each water meter to see how much water was used the previous month.

The Association does not currently have a limit on members' water usage or charge its members for water overage. However, if Sun Cove reaches its cap on water rights, measures must be taken to ensure compliance with the law.
ANNUAL BACK FLOW TESTING
Once per year the association coordinates and pays for backflow testing for all lots. If a person fails to cooperate or make their home available for the back flow testing the risk a water line shut off.
Each winter it's important to winterize your property to avoid burst pipes. Find all information on how to winterize your pipes properly here.
