B & S Farms – Swiiming Pool Water Supply is here to answer any questions you may have. Below are the most frequently asked questions we receive.

A: Some people try but this can take several days to fill your pool. In many cases, we have delivered to unfortunate circumstances where a water pump had burnt out completely.

A: Approximately 6,000 gallons of water at a time.
