I tried searching the forums to see if this has already been asked and answered, but didn't find anything.
We recently purchased a used AGP and will be replacing the liner. We are going to have to dig down about 18 inches to get down to a level pad. We are also going to be putting in a deep end.
What I need to know is if we are not able to completely fill the pool in the first couple of days are we going to risk it getting damaged by the wind? We live in the country and are on a well. We don't want to completely drain the well as that is our only water supply. The area that we are going to place the pool will receive un-sheltered wind from the South and from the West.
What we would like to do is just put a foot or so of water in the pool (at the shallow end and the deep end will be full) and then let the water temperature heat up a little bit in the sun. Then over the course of the next several days continue to put more water in as our well will allow. Hopefully the water temp will increase a little each day also.
I have tried to find someone to haul water in for us, but have not located anyone yet.
What do you think? What is the minimum amount of water we would want in there in order to secure it until we can add more water? We do have a water tank that fits in the back of a pickup but it only holds 200 gallons and that would be a lot of trips to get water!!!
