The regular pool is approximately 4 bathtubs of full of water, and can take from 30 minutes up to 2.5 hours to fill, depending on your water supply system. The best time to start filling the pool is in early labour, as it's better to be a little early than too late!
You may wish to have a practice run, setting up and filling the pool - to do this we recommend that you buy and extra disposable liner to ensure the liner you have for your birth is clean. Never fill the pool without a liner. Additional liners can be purchased here www.birthpoolinabox.co.uk
