Check with your local pool company. They should be able to advise you which route is the cheapest of a delivery of water in a truck, using the fire hydrant (if in an area with this service) or using your hoses at your home. Your city can give you further information about using the hydrant and hose rental. etc.
Any bulk water delivery company in your area will be able to fill up your pool. I live in Michigan and we've used Blue Water Trucking in the past. Try looking up similar companies under bulk water delivery in your area.
* To clean a pool and new fresh water when the water is green you have to drain the water. * After all the water is gone wash the pool * When that is done you can fill the pool with fresh water. These steps depend on what kind of pool u have!!! I would assume that the above is referring to pools without filters and pumps. The answer should be lots of chlorine and 24/7 filtering of water.
The water should not be turned off until at the recommended level. Leave the hose on. Pool & Spa
WolframAlpha, a new search engine gives a UK gallon of water at 0.1337 cu.ft so your pool should take 6,462 gallon to fill, give or take a cupful. Check it out!
some local fire departments will fill pools for a fee.
No. In order to "move" a pool you would have to "prep" the old pool for demolition by code and then fill it with the proper materials of a construction site as per code. Then you would pick a new location for your "new" pool. Yes the "new" pool would have to be built from scratch.
You have to treat pool water with pool chemicals and use a pool filter to get and keep the water clear.
You can't, I have never heard of any one converting any type of pool. The pool has to be taken out and then you can rebuild a new pool or fill in and put new pool in a new spot cost wise it is not feasable.
wrinkles in the liner are impossible to remove after the pool is filled. It's a loosing battle. Only two options. #1- if the wrinkles are small just enjoy the pool. Next time you fill the pool have the kids work the wrinkles out as you fill it. #2- If the wrinkles are "over lapping" drain the pool and start over. The water bill is much cheaper than a new liner. Good Luck hope this will help. R.B.
if the salt water pool has a extreme high mineral content it ,could make the grout white, if the grout is new.
There may be small gaps at the corners. Once water is put in the pool, the pressure will stretch the liner to fill these gaps. Since the water fill from the bottom upwards, any air "trapped" on the bottom will be forced out the top as well when the pool is filled. The water is in the pool, liner is rounded in the corners and their is approximately 1" space between the liner and bottom/side corner of the pool bottom.
um... i would have to say, empty the water (if you can) then clean the pool spotless. Make sure all the tubes (jets) and filter is cleaned out and spotless again. then fill it up with clean water. run it for a day or two and then add the chlorine or and other chemicals you want. (That's the best i can say) or get a new pool.
That depends on the size of the pool and how fast the water is running that is filling it.
Yes, build a new wall along the length of your pool to the desired width then back fill the part you will not be using
With a new pool surface installed- Diamond Brite or any aggregate surface- is it possible or doable to acid wash the pool with water in the pool??
u just clean the pool or buy a new one
Not if it is a vinyl liner pool. You have to fix the leaks. The walls will collapse and you will have to get a new pool. Fill it back up and call American leak detection or another company. I recommend them because they will come out and fix it until it is repaired. If you don't, you will probably have to pay for a brand new pool essentially. I didn't get my pool closed until the second week of october because of this. Finally they fixed it and I closed it.
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.
Chlorine and shock are not the first ingredients to "start" a new pool. A conditioner should have been added first. It helps the chlorine stay in the water and work. Take a water sample to your pool store. tell them you are trying to "Start" the pool
The water of your new plaster finished pool might turn green when you added chlorine because of iron in your water. You pool generally needs to be filled with water that has been filtered for iron.
when you have filled the pool so the static skimmer is underwater and water can get to the filtration system let it run for about 24 hours. the best thing to do after that is to take a sample of water from a bout an arms length down from the surface of the pool. Do this by thoroughly cleaning a soft drink bottle or something like that, Hold it upside down as you put it in the water push it down as far as you can reach and turn it around when the bole is full cap it and take it to a pool shop. Let them know that this is new water. and also where it came from,They will tell you from testing your water exactly what is required to get the water ready to swim in.
The water should contain chlorine in order to kill germs. You won't know who or what might land in your pool.
Yes. And once you start filling your pool, do not stop until the water is up to the tile line. Stopping the water for a prolong time could cause a stain line around the perimeter. If you are filling your pool with well water you may want to pre-filter it to take out the tannins and any metals. If you can't pre-filter your well water; get your system up and running ad treat the water with a stain and scale additive.
My guess is that the pool was under-sanitized (insufficient chlorine for example) before you started adding the fill water. The fill water is also probably under-sanitized, or at best would have very little chlorine in it (and possibly some phosphates). You should keep a good residual of free-and-available sanitizer (chlorine for example) at all times - and add more sanitizer to cater for new topup water.
Ours did this last year. We were told it was iron in the water. We even have an iron filter system and a softener but they need to cycle every so often and can't keep up with a constant run like you have to do to fill a pool. We had to drain the whole pool and then wipe every inch of it to get all the "soot" off the bottom. Good luck if that's what it is. We didn't bother with the pool this year - we like sprinklers now ;)
Yes there is no need to drain a chlorinated pool to change it to salt water pool all you have to do is add the salt install the new equipment and run it as usual.
