Do the families have the proper permits to add water to the public pool? If not should the time to acquire the permits be considered ?
Secondly, What is the temperature of the water coming out of the hoses, as cooler water will expand and fill the pool faster.

Considering all of the unknowns we can not solve for Time. Do you know how much water the Baxters are delivering to the pool? It appears they did not pay their Water bill.

Pool=302,000
Gilberts=G=(B/12)*92/H
Baxters=B
Sings=S=85gallons/H

Time=302,000/S+B+G/H

### What is the screw or nob in the middle of the intex 530 gallon pump lid for.

That is an air release valve screw. After you fill you rpool with water - open this screw until water comes out then tighten until sealed firmly. Turn pump on.

This allows the air to be released from the pump chamber "priming" the water flow.
