HILLSBOROUGH -

It won’t officially be summer until Thursday, but many New Jersey residents are making sure that their backyard pools are ready to go.

Many will use a pool water delivery truck to fill their pools, because a backyard garden hose just won’t cut it.

News 12 New Jersey’s Brian Donohue rode along with Alex Cardenas of Happie Time Pool Water, based out of Roxbury, to get a look at how these deliveries are made. The truck can carry about 6,500 gallons of water.

With temperatures reaching above 90 this week, it is safe to say that many New Jersey families will enjoy the chance to cool off in the pool.
