2 Ways To Fill Your Pool

Posted on: 23 November 2022

Having a swimming pool can be a lot of fun. At least, it can be after you get it filled and you have wonderful water to jump into and enjoy. When it comes to filling your swimming pool, you have a few options. Each option has some plusses and minuses, which one you choose depends on you, your supplies, and your situation. What are some of the choices you have?

Garden Hose

One of your options is to use a garden hose. You just hook your hose up to the outdoor faucet and run the hose out to the pool. How long it takes to fill up your pool depends on what kind of pool you have as well as how big it is. A smaller aboveground pool won't take long, so you will want to monitor it closely. But a large inground pool will take a lot longer to fill up, so you can generally go and do other stuff while it is filling. It may even take overnight, but you shouldn't leave the hose running overnight because you don't want to run the risk of everything overflowing while you are asleep. While this option may be the less expensive option, running the hose for a long time can overwhelm your water pressure, so you may not be able to do much with the water inside your house. If you have a well, there is also a chance that it will really deplete your well. 

Pool Water Delivery

Another option is to have your pool water delivered. A water tanker will come out to your house and get emptied into your pool. Depending on the size of your pool, it may take more than one truck to fill it up, so when you order the water delivery, tell the company how many gallons your pool holds. That way, they can dispatch a large enough tanker or the right number of trucks to fill up your pool. This option gets your pool filled quickly, but you are paying extra for the convenience of the water delivery. However, water delivery can be the only sensible option if you don't have a hose or a really large inground pool. 

When the weather gets warm, you want a way to get nice and cool. A pool will do that for you. You need to find a way to fill the pool. You have options for filling your pool.
