Forgive me if this has been covered before (I'm sure it has, but didn't see anything searching)...
I need to fill my new pool - AG 12,000 gallons. I got an estimate from the water trucking company of about $500 to supply 9,000 gallons of pre-treated water. I plan to use Chlorine. They can't come for 3-4 business days - which means to me - that they might not come out this week.
Orrr...... I could just throw the hose in. I have town water (no well) I need the hose to cover the 3k gallons that the water trucking company won't supply anyway... but should I just bag out on the water truck and fill the whole pool? I honestly have no idea cost-wise which is more effective, I figure I'd probably have to put more chemicals in if I fill the entire pool. Plus I have no idea how long it will take to fill.
To summarize - here's my questions:
* Do ya'll think it will cost me more to fill the pool with town water then to truck in 9k gallons of pre-treated water for $500 & fill the rest with town water?
* Do you think it will take longer then 3-4 days to fill a 12k gallon pool with town water?
I know this is all variable, just looking for guestimates/opinions.
BTW I ordered my TF Pool test kit today - yay!
