What would you like to do?
Can you suggest any contractors in Florida that will give you an estimate to fill in an unused swimming pool?
If you are just looking to remove a pool that you don't want and which is still functional, you may try advertising it in Craig's list or Freecycle. You can say that they can …have it for free if they remove the item. You may have to stipulate what they can and cannot remove. However, in most cases this works great.
That depends on where you are. In Australia pools are filled up with normal tap water unless there are water restrictions on. then you would have to get a permit to fill… a new pool. pool top ups in the major city's are done from the normal tap at any time subject to local government regulations. If you live in a place like Whitecliffs Australia you would have buy the water to be delivered by tanker.
660,000 gallons of water
Yes you can, however you have to be careful you do not burn the well pump up. run the pump for an hour then shut the hose off let the pump cool down, for about 20 min then rep…eat the process until the desired level is reached. Well water for poolYes.
Fill your pool Yes, it's ok to fill from a well. It is smart to have the water tested. A pool supply comapny should be able to do this. The exception would be …filling from a shallow well that may contain pesticides or petroleum (gasoline or oil). This can happen when older storage tanks rust through and the product contaminates the ground water.
A 5/8" hose (the usual garden type) delivers up to 17 gallons per minute or 24480 gallons per day. Most pools will fill between 16 and 24 hours.
Is your pool equipment equipped to handle ocean water?
Estimating swimming pool cost's Many factors come into play when estimating maintenance cost. Like how many gallons is your pool? A simple formula for an approxim…ate size is : Length of your pool X (times) Width X average depth (6' in the deep end 4' in the shallow, average depth is 5') X 7.5 , and your answer will tell you the gallons of your pool. How much foreign material falls into the pool, total pool usage, hot weather and filtering system upkeep. Add up your chemical cost from that, and some good 'ol fashioned labor is all it cost's. An average cost per month for a 10' by 30' pool should cost about $25. Of course more pool traffic, more chemicals. more cost. But the enjoyment of the pool certainly makes up for any cost. Chemical tester strips are a must, buy some and learn to use them, they'll pay for themselves in the long run, avoiding costly shock treatments or worse, pool drainage, and acid washes.
Using a significant amount of water can tax the available flow, but most wells have considerably more water supply.
get shock treatment and then chlorine
I had a 15' pool and it took 3 1/2 hours to fill it
Yes. Go to a search engine such as google.com and type in "company that fills swimming pools" and you can find them.
If you just dump dirt into it you may end up with a situation where water stays within the pools area leading to boggy ground so to make the ground behave like the surro…unding area you will need to have some point where excess water can drain into the natural ground.
Bust up all the concrete... Bust out all the PVC piping. Fill in with dirt. Check your local codes on water removal.
yes but don't do it all at once if your well is newer run it for 2 hours and let it rest for 2 hours. if the well is like 12+ only for a hour and let it rest longer. have fun …in your pool :). PS if your water starts to look dirty stop running it for 5 days . or in tell it rains this means your well is running low. you can still use your water just watch how much you use.
I would not recommend it, the bubbles could get into the pipes of the pool which could cause problems with the water that runs out of the pipe. It is also could affect the chl…orine in the pool.
