If you just moved into a new house that has an empty pool sitting in the back yard, you don't have to spend days filling your pool up with water from your hose. Instead, you can easily add water to your pool via a bulk water delivery. Bulk water delivery is designed to allow you to fill up large spaces with water quickly, such as a pool, hot tub, or pond.

#1 Schedule Your Delivery In Advance

Don't expect your local bulk water delivery to show up the same day you put in a phone call. If you are looking to get your pool filled with water at the beginning of the summer, chances are a lot of other people have the same idea as well. Make sure that you call at least a few days in advance of when you want your pool filled, and take into account seasonal demand. Don't plan a pool party for Friday and call on a Thursday to get your pool filled. Be sure to give it a little time.

#2 Know How Much Water Your Need

Second, when you call to schedule a water delivery, it is helpful to know how many gallons of water you need. That way, the bulk delivery service can make sure that they bring the right amount of water.

If you are not sure how many gallons of water your pool will need to fill it, you are going to need to provide the water delivery service with the dimensions of your pool. This will allow them to calculate the volume of what they you will most likely need and will help them know approximately how many gallons of water you'll need to be operational.

#3 Know The Distance From Truck To Pool

Third, you need to have an idea of how far the area where the water delivery truck will have to park is from where your pool is. For example, if the delivery driver will be able to pull into your backyard, they will need a much shorter hose than if they are going to have to park out on the street. Use a measuring tape to get an estimate of how far your parking areas is from your pool area, and be sure to account for any obstacles that the hose may have to go around. This will help ensure that you have the best water delivery experience possible.

Be sure to schedule your bulk water delivery in advance of when you need it for your new pool, know how much water you need and know the distance from the truck to the pool. Doing this and knowing this information will help ensure you get the best water delivery possible. Contact a company like Mannix Pools to learn more.
