looks a really good deal, but i have just read a review on the site which im pondering over right now

not sure its a good buy

"yes we bought this pool but nobody sells the filters which need to cleaned every couple of days other wise you don't get enough flow through the pump or they need to be replaced you would think B&Q would sell replacement items for the stuff they sell.???/"

trying chcking the stock in your area as even at the price it is now there is no stock so cold for me
#5
there is 1 near me (not local) but think its too big, if it was 8ft would jump at it.

good deal for some though
#6
no stock near me:-(
#7
stock near me so i have reserved one at bishopbriggs will go pick it up at 7am when i finish nightshift! hopefully price is £24! heat added thanks
just had a text message tellin me it will be ready for pick up after 10am, will go for a quick sleep first as i,m on the checkouts at 4pm! i so wanted to have a go in this before i went to work! :)
#8
There's only limited stock about an hours drive from me, but it may be worth it. I've got the 8ft version of this and it's brill, and I didn't get the filter. The filter I was going to buy was more than this entire pool set, so I am seriously considering it!
#9
i was checking the reviews for it on the argos website and only 1 negative from what i remember as there was 71 to read through! at £24 it could be worth it :)
#10
yea but are they any good

You can get these just about at every garden centre that sell these pools.

Great find for school holidays, kids already driving me up the wall. Ordered and heat added.

No, this is not a good deal, these are dreadful pools, I've got one.

Unlike a normal pool you can't use these until they are full of water and they take several hundred gallons and several hours to fill ("quick up"? VERY funny!). Unless you use heated water (at great expense) they will be freezing cold for several days until they adjust to ambient temperatures. You have to situate them on ground that slopes no more than three degrees, if you put them on grass the weight will suffocate the grass and patches will die after only three days. I've got dead patches.

These are actually designed to be semi-permanent fixtures which is why they come with a cover and filter, the filter, however, is practically useless. After having my own one up a few weeks ago the kids have expressed a preference for their smaller paddling pool, it's warmer.

will other sizes be in the sale too ?

None of those (except the filter) are really any particular fault with the actual pool tho are they?


Whatever pool you bought would share all those faults unless heated, and I doubt you would get a heated pool for £25

Some in my local store but we're moving soon so doesn't seem much point.

I agree with this, we had one last year was just too much hard work to put up and down, by the time it was filled it was late and sun had gone, it ended up staying up for days just incase the sun came out again, by this time grass was dead and water was yucky, it was awkward to clean and trying to drain without flooding the garden was terrible. went in the bin pretty quickly.
Went back to a more managageable family pool this yr.

Just because its cheap does not make it great, yes it does not have faults, or its not really expensive...but its also not a very functional product, infact its harder work than fun by far.

Not actual faults of the pool though. You haven't said it's gone wrong, broken or anything. Just it uses lots of water and kills the grass which anything covering grass for days on end will do :roll:

Voted hot and may get one.
#19
Gona have to agree - I got one a few years ago. Maybe cheap, but it ain't worth the hassle. Where you put it has to be completely level. Any slope and you run the risk of it collapsing.

After kids have been in it a couple of times, its full of grass. Without a cover, it'll be full of flies.

If you don't use the filter (all the time), the pool soon goes slimy.

It uses far too much water and kills the grass underneath for the rest of the year.

Never got it out the shed last year and dreading the kids asking for it out again. Much easier getting a small paddling pool.
#20
Cheap doesn't necessarily mean it's crap, i bought the £97 trampoline from asda and everyone else who bought one somewhere else for a lot more money agree the asda one is far better!
#21
I'm another one who bought one last year, used it once, put it away and will not be getting it out this year.
It's a shame as I can see how it [U]could[U] be good fun but you'll need a large hard standing, near a waterproof power source, a large run off area for drainage and the patience of a saint filling it and waiting for it to warm up.
Good luck.
#22
I purchased one of these a couple of days ago at the £50 price and in honesty I'm quite happy with it.

I'm glad I'm not on a water meter though as they take 3200litres of water to fill and that is pretty much an afternoons worth of water.

Its chilly but after a day has warmed up quite nicely.

As with all things, you get what you pay for. £50/£25 gets you a large pool that WILL kill the grass and use a hell of a lot of water. It seems well made and it doesnt seem to mind the slope in our garden that much - one side is kinda bulging a bit more than the other but thats about it.

£5 for some grass care stuff should fix it up after its gone :D

I wonder if they'll do anything due to me buying one only 2 days ago at the full price. kinda annoying!
#23
These are not paddling pools!!
You need to treat them like a real pool. I have an 18ft one and use a filter and all the chemicals you would with a 'proper' pool.
If you just fill them up and leave them they will go green and slimy, but more importantly, be full of horrible bacteria.
Don't get one if you don't want to look after it. If you do, they are great fun.
#24
OF COURSE IT USES A LOT OF WATER ITS A 10ft SWIMMING POOL! :roll:

OF COURSE IT'LL FLATTEN THE GRASS ITS A 10ft SWIMMING POOL :roll:

OF COURSE THE GROUND NEEDS TO BE LEVEL ITS FULL OF WATER! :roll:

Why buy one unless you've thought it thro and dont complain because you didnt.

Buy one at the cheaper price (if there is stock of course) and then take it back with the old receipt and get your original money back. :)

Why not go in and buy another at the reduced price then take it back with your old receipt , voila! half price pool 2 days in advance !
#27
lol wish I'd read on a little bit further , would have saved me time
#28
still showing full price when i finished work
#29
saw this deal, shot down to B&Q this morning and IT'S STILL FULL PRICE

The guy on customer service had no idea what i was talking about when i mentioned the sale:oops:
#30
These pools are great - really disagree with others.

However - they are expected to be left setup, and you WILL need to buy a proper pool kit for it with the relevant chemicals.

I've got an 8ft one up this year - with a 12ft ready for next year. They are quick to put up and a few hours to fill - then LEAVE it up. Buy a cheapy solar cover for £6 quid - and within a few days it is very pleasant. With the sun we've had recently it is actually WARM (still cool to dip in though). I am using the filter off the 12ft pool . .and they aren't very good at all to be honest. . just enough to do the job.

These DO require maintenance - you will need to keep the chlorine levels right to keep the pool clean and healthy.

I suppose you could just put it up on a friday and drain on a monday - it will kill grass underneath.

Overall - it is what is says and a good offer. Personally 2nd weekend of a BBQ pool party tomorrow and my pool will be in high use :)
#31
still showing as £48.98 online, the trampoline is showing the sale price, and theres no mention of this being in sale, where did you see this?
#32
Just been in to local B&Q in Halesowen, same thing. No half-price on this one. Cold cold cold... pardon the pun.
#33
Oh dear, I think someone messed up didn't they, shame I can't retract my 9 degrees of heat.
#34
Well, Quidco doesn't pays for Reserve& Collect for B&Q

Oh dear, I think someone messed up didn't they, shame I can't retract my 9 degrees of heat.

me also, but what i will do in future is wait and see if it does go to this price as i had reserved one online and when i finished my nightshift checked and the price even now is still the same so in future heat will be added after i have picked up and made sure it is price op is stating!
#36
managed to get a trampoline today from wednesbury was only 3 left.

many thanks to the lovely lady we bumped into also getting one who told us of the £25 off voucher for the trampoline so making it even more of a bargain!!

Kelly:-D:friends:

We have the 8ft Quick up Pool and I am delighted with it for my boys - paddling pools are just too small!
I have additionally bought some chlorine tablets and a plastic dispenser which u leave in the pool overnight (£15 off eBay - wil last us years)
And a pot of testers strips to check the chlorine level is ok (£5 off ebay)
And a friend did give us a bubble-wrap type cover - maybe its a solar cover? Anyway - that heats the pool up lovely and quick when the sun is out
Our pool fits on our patio and I just put a tarp under it
Our patio does slope, but not hugely, so the water level slopes a little too
Emptying it does water the whole garden, but thats welcomed by the grass and flowers and it slowly empties itself with a hose off it
It can stay up 2 weeks and not gets too dirty - I do make my boys step in a bowl 1st tho b4 they get back in to stop too much grass getting in ...and at night they like to use the fishing net if there is any grass to skim out
Pretty easy to dry and fold away ...I think the 10 or 12ft ones would need 2 people

Recommended!
