Refilling pool too fast!!

Postby jason69 » Fri 28 Aug, 2009 11:58

Hi guys,

I am refilling my pool but I was wondering if it is ok for me to refill the pool fast. I want to use the fire hidrant but I am afraid that too much water so faster might do some damage.
What do you think?

Fire hydrant may be the most cost effective way to fill the pool. :lol:
If the plaster is old and cured, it will not damage anything.
It will not even have the effect of a pressure washer and after initial 200 gallons you can direct the force into freshly created pool.
However, if you have a new plaster, or if you are not the local fire chief it will have a detrimental effect!!
