BRING on summer and warmer weather, because Aldi is selling a 10ft paddling pool for as little as a tenner.

The paddling pool has a capacity of about 3800 litres and it comes with a three year warranty.

It is suitable for children aged six or above, so you will probably need something smaller if you’re looking for a pool for your toddler.

3,800 litres at £3.20ish per cubic metre of water (1000L) average UK price = £12.16 to fill = the water costs more than the pool!
If your not on a water meter it doesn't matter how much water it takes to fill it.

We got the 8ft one from Euro car parts for £20 so this is a total baragin, is it in store only though??
What store!!?
Is it available in store yet? I can’t find it online
With this you also need to spend another £60 ! A pump, a cover, some tablets and the tablet holder (cant think of names but Amazon were the cheapest)
I didn't buy a cover and after 2 days I saw these things wiggling in my pool like maggots. So maybe they were fly eggs.
Bought a cover and the tablets and pool lasted a week. Next I needed a pump so I gave up but I have one for this year.

Spot on, you absolutely do need these. Chlorine tablets if anyone was wondering. You'll also need some aspirin tablets for all the screaming the kids do once they're in and splashing each other.
those wiggling things are mosquito larvae but your clorine tabs would kill them

Also worth pointing out that you don't have to pay the waste charge if you use the water in the garden and notify your local water authority.

In the south thames charge £1.28 per cubic meter supplied plus £0.81 waste so 3800L would cost £4.86

leave it outside and let it fill with rain water
I have the eight foot one which is 2400l. It is great and lasts for a while when using chlorine tabs. However, it takes over 3 hours to fill. So I reckon this one will be 5 hours.

Free water in Scotland thankfully. Worth checking the local limits for disposal of chlorinated pool water. As I recall, my 2400 litre pool was getting close to the limit of what may be disposed of into the ground in one go.
how are they going to know what your using it for or how and when you put it on your garden

The rules exist for a reason. Protecting environment and water supplies.

Not getting found out, doesn't make it right.

Same in Manchester. We are born with gills.

Is there anyway of keeping the water warm in these type of pools?? Can you attach a heater/ filter etc??

Yes. I was considering one for my pool. However, I then did some sums.........

They are £75, slow and use a lot of electricity. Raising the temperature 3600 litres of water by 1 degree requires 15048 kJ of energy. The heater is 2.2kW which means it can supply 2.2 kJ per second. It will take (15048/2.2) 6840 seconds (1.9 hours) per degree. In reality it will be significantly slower due to heat loss from the water to the air/ground.

The heater will cost approximately 33p per hour to run while heating. So its around 66p per degree. Again, in reality, probably much more due to heat loss.

Soooo.............
To go from 20 degrees to a comfy 35 will take more than 30 hours and will cost more than £10 in electricity.

It would be nice, but slow and expensive.
Thank you. I found the same with another type of pool- I’m just too much of a whimp to splash around in cold water!
Where did you people found this ? Which store ? Online is out of stock

That is a flawed assumption, just Google Aldi paddling pool and you will see the thing is now in the national newspapers, which would suggest it is nationwide. Yes, I have seen it in a store near where I live, but I have not been in every store in the country and l dare say you havent either.
Just called customer support: out of stock in the UK. They are trying to get some new stock.

Do it properly and buy :-

Taylor tester kit
Sodium Hypochlorite
Pool vacuum
Heat pump

And head over to the trouble free pool forum and read the guides.
