it will cost £33 to fill it on a meter!



As your teacher likely said to you repeatedly "check your working" there is no way it costs £33 to fill this..... A cubic meter of water costs around £1.80 by your reckoning that's 18.5m3 or 18.5 tons of water in this!
It holds around 5.5m3 so roughly £9 to fill.

If you have a very big bathroom?

Bath tub?

Here in the UK the word 'tub' in this scenario is superfluous.

Me thinks you watch too much American TV.

I don't think the point of the comment was complete accuracy on cost.
Ironically my teacher never accepted rough answers. They repeatedly told me my answers had to be accurate.

Watch out with these though as the deal I'd good price wise the pool /bath needs to go on pretty level ground. I had a similar one and gave it away because it wouldn't sit right and got one that inflated all around it for better stability which is required when mental kids are playing in it

It's half priced in stores, picked up one for £20.

i wasnt going for accuracy, it was more a comment on that it will cost a pretty penny to fill, its not your average paddling pool.

How long is the hose?

In my area it's so posh we have the real thing . Dare say it could be used for the dogs

Anyone know if these come with a cover?

Anglian Water cost per cubic metre = £3.03.(£1.54 per cubic metre used and £1.66 per cubic metre waste - waste being calculated at 90% of water used.) To fill would be around £15.and then there is topping up, chemicals, test strips, electric to run pump etc. Mine has been in the shed for a few years. Price is good though as they were £80 plus 12 years ago when I got mine.

90% would be less not more and it's included in the 1.54 per M3

Thanks for the useless reply, plonker

An excellent deal for someone who wants one

The best advice for an above ground pool is to buy the biggest size you can afford. I wouldn't recommend anything below 15 foot.

Get a sand filter and salt water system.

And be prepared to pay a fortune for the heat pump.

As mentioned you need almost absolutely flat ground... I have a ever so slight slope and it's useless..

Sorry, but you are wrong. I know what I pay. It is £1.54 per cubic metre and then we have to pay £1.66 for the 90% that is not consumed and assumed to go back into their drains.
