Hi,

Can anyone advise best way to fill up swimming pool.

Having new liner put in.

Is it best to just use own water or have some delivered?

Thanks for any advise.

Hi Coliin

As far as I am aware you aren't allowed to fill via your own supply - though
people do. Obviously quicker for a tanker to deliver & fill but other than
that I am not sure there is much difference.

Cheers

Steve

We were told by our pool man that a lot more expensive to have a tanker fill it. as was early in year wasnt a problem waiting days for it to fill.

We have a well & intended using that to re-fill it but told not too as bad for pool.

Read a thread on here quite a while ago that with a tanker you should have the water tested before you accept it as it may be someone's old pool water and full of all the chemicals that caused the previous owner to get rid. At least with the tap you know where it's coming from.

'Best' way is obviously to use your tap just do the sums at x euros per tonne and you have a pretty good idea of what is going in to your new liner. Tanker deliveries are fraught with risk of what water you get and you could easily overpay as the charge is probably per tanker and how will you know how much goes in. Work out the pool capacity first the choice is then easy.

'Legal' is a joke here and how will the municipality know unless you are surrounded by trouble makers.

We had a new liner fitted to our 6m x 3m pool and were advised not to bring in water via a tanker because
1 Quite expensive

2. You don't know the origin of the water and what it may contain.

We filled our pool up from the tap & paid 36 on our next bill.

Cheaper and much safer than tanker water regardless of the so called illegality of it. Locals probably use more than that over a year washing the pavements & road outside their house.

Simples ('Very Happy')

5. Work out usage= x euros per tonne remembering to allow higher usage rates.
