Can you fill a pool with rain water?

Rainwater collected in tanks can be safely used for pools provided it is introduced into the pool through either the balance tank or into the pool at night to allow sufficient time for treatment before bathers enter the pool. The rainwater tank must be maintained and checked periodically for sludge accumulation.

Keeping this in view, can you fill a hot tub with rain water?

While we've already suggested repurposing old hot tub water, you can also use gathered water to replace any evaporated water that may have escaped your spa. Some people use rain barrels or similar setups to catch rainwater and refill their hot tub with it or use it around their yard.

Subsequently, question is, how often do you need to top up pool? With pools that are covered, a good rule of thumb is that they should not have to be refilled more often than once every 2 weeks.

In this manner, how much does it cost to have pool water delivered?

The pricing is in the range of $225 for a half tanker delivery. The average cost of a typical 24' round pool (containing 14,700 gallons) with your water hose is going to cost you about $80-$160. These costs are depending where in the country you live and your local water supply markets.

What is water harvesting system?
