Our new pool is arriving next week...and we were wondering if anyone knows where to buy water to fill it..(already treated? is there such a thing?), prices,if we should just approach our friendly fire department, or call the water dept and get a rate on filling it ourselves. And once it is set up, how long before it can be used for swimming? Thanks.......

Check with your water department. Hubby works for ours, and brought the large, fire type hose home to do it. It does take a while even in that, but you should be swimming by night, or the next morning... I don't know how they do it. Also, cost is about $2/ 1000 gallons of water here... I think... So it really doesn't add up to much.

Lastly, where did you get it & does it have a flat bottom or go deeper in the middle?

That cost isn't bad....what county are you in? Would the water dept do something like that or do you just mean check in to let them know and for costs? I believe we will have it done as a flat bottom because it's already 52" instead of the usual 48", and we certainly don't need it any deeper with the children using it....

Get it through your Fire Dept and kill 2 birds with 1 stone - you get what you need and they get what they need - a donation.

I had my hubby who is a fireman fill ours but ours is a selfrising one from Walmart. The kids were swimming that day but it was very cold! Call the fire dept. I know that if you live outside of the village they don't deliver any more.

Check with the water dept to see if they can fill the pool. I am in the town of Rom.
