Can't wait for the "new pool season". (Finally starting to warm up here in PA). It's been years since I've had a pool. This year I will be installing a 15 x 33 x 54" AGP. I had a (hopefully not too stupid) question.
Our current home is on Well Water. A few of our neighbors have concrete IGP's and instead of taking the time to fill the pools from the wells, they usually use a company to deliver the water. For the convenience, the cost is pretty reasonable and saves a bit of time compared to filling up over the span of a few days.
My questions is this:
As I install the new liner, (It's a beaded liner), I was planning on filling appx 12 inches of water, make sure there are "no" wrinkles and make sure the liner is seating properly.
I plan to have the company deliver the water (usually in 2 truckloads) and have them scheduled for the same day the liner goes in.
Should I fill more than 12 inches before calling for water?
I may be on the wrong track , but I'm just not sure how fast the water is filled from these trucks and I'd like to get some opinions. Is is possible to fill "too fast" or anything else I should know?
Should I add more water before calling for water delivery?
Because one side of my pool is going to be close to a concrete retaining wall on one side, It will be very easy to "shore up / stabilize" during the filling process. I also plan on making sure the "remainder" of the pool wall is supported during this process. (I've been reading what others have done and I've seen some of the posts of the bad things that can happen with wind, etc when replacing liners on AGP's so I would (of course) like to take my time and make sure I don't have walls cave in etc.
I've been studying this site since October preparing and getting myself back up to speed as it's been many years since I've had a pool.
I'm just trying to plan ahead. Any tips would be a huge help.
