We're near the end of our pool building adventure and I'm wondering about how long it takes to fill the pool.
Plus, I'm assuming i can just put a garden hose into it (we're in Sydney) and put it on full bore but am I wrong, are there rules around this? I've seen online somewhere else that a 40k litre pool takes around 7 hours but does anyone have experience?
Plus, before we actually take our first swim I'm assuming the chemicals need to be added and checked but how long does this process take? I want to know if it's realistic to get certification (after pool fence has been installed) on a Wednesday and be swimming in it by the weekend.

You may want to see about water truck delivery if you want it filled quickly. A hose will take a very long time.
You can swim in the pool whenever you feel it is ready, mind you until certified it'd be technically illegal to swim in it.

A standard 12 mm garden hose flows at about 16-20 lpm. Shorter hose lengths are faster.
I haven't dealt with the pool industry for nearly 8 years but what has happened with the water neutral pools initiative...but maybe that only applied to Victoria.
3 in 1 Supadiverta. 0.75mm filter. No downpipes diverted. Can delete overflow pipe. Cleaner Neater Cheaper
Supa Gutter Pumper. An inexpensive gutter overflow solution.

I filled ours using the hose - seemed to fill ok - but will take a few days - turn it on and just let it go. But - 7 hours seems a bit optimistic - unless you have great flow.
They may start before all is finished. You don't want an empty pool ...
Empty pools can move.

We had a rather similar problem. I gather the shire are the ones to rubber stamp everything. I suggest you get them out to advise. They will be the ones to pass or fail.…
