8 Foot Pool only £19.99 at Netto...holds nearly twice as much water than the Argos one!

16
Found 9th Jun 2007
A good value pool for all the family. Holds 1953 litres - as opposed to 1048 litres for the Argos pool at this price, so capacity size bigger. Easy to set up. Sturdy and durable. Suitable to all ages - BUT please if you let your kids use these pools or any pool in the garden this summer, make sure you watch them.

Couldn't agree more!

If by chance any buyers/importers/manufacturers of these types of things are reading this a nice big warning on the side, like the ones on cigs and beers would be useful?

(Perhaps there should be some such warning for people who think it's OK to lock your children in a bedroom while you go out to eat?)

I agree with you here, however sad it is, the world it seems is even sadder. Kids are too precious to leave alone and in todays world we have to expect the unexpected.

absolutely excellent deal

Shame the water bill will cost as much as the pool itself :giggle:

Not when you don't have a water meter!!! Getting value for money out of your water bill excellent!!!:-D

Out of interest - How are you supposed to empty these, without flooding your garden ???

Thanks

buy one of these. it will empty it to ]http//ww…cts an outside drain in around 30 mins!:thumbsup:

i have seen them for £10 in lidl and aldi

Just flood the garden!!!

Will save you having to water it for the next six months!

Am amazed when I empty my pool how quickly the water disappears

Oh! Oh! Oh! (excitement mounting). Forgive me, I'm not spamming, but this is the perfect opportunity to advertise my blog "The Cool Sh** that You Can Supposedly Buy at Netto". I've been writing it for a couple of weeks now, ever since they were selling a cement mixer for £80.

here is the link: coolsh**atnetto.blogspot.com/ (obviously replace the two asterisks for "it")

I'm wondering if I'll ever get a takedown order from Netto. lol.

Hope you like it. Sorry if it seems like spamming, I'm not - it's just opportunism ;-)

I've voted this hot, just for the flooding the garden potential.

It'll cost £2 to £3 to fill or thereabouts.

These things should be banned...We don't have water to waste its to precious a commodity...:-(

I hope all who buy them get charged by the water authority for wasting huge amounts of water...I heard some water authorities this year were charging people with these huge pools in there gardens for the water used...And using Helicopters to spot just like when they brung the hosepipe bans in...

I'm all for fun this summer but not at the expense of our already depleted water table..Everyone should be taking more care with water..:thumbsup:

Yeah i thought the sea was looking paricually empty this … Yeah i thought the sea was looking paricually empty this year....:whistling:



Yes, it often amazes me that we live on an island and we have water shortages.

On average, every person in the UK uses 150 litres of water each day - so actually 2000 isn't that much when you can leave one of these things filled for a week at least at a time if you cover them up overnight (the health risks of hot tubs don't apply so much as the water is too cold to let anything really nasty breed). Compared to driving back and forth to the nearest pool or to other attractions, these things probably work out as a reasonably green activity. You could even use some of the water for plants afterwards (or pump it into your grey water system using your solar powered pump).

For the sake of convenience, though, I'd have thought one as big as this was unnecessary - and 2 tonnes of water suddenly overflowing into your garden if it split would be an issue for some people! It does look fun, though :-)

All sold out when i got to netto's,
went to woolies instead - they have some branded pools for £10 more, for £40 you can get a 10' one with a filter,pump & cover.

As for water shortages - I was fishing last night & our lakes were full. The biggest water wasters are strangely not the consumers, they tend to use it.

The pools with a filter & cover allow you to use less water over the summer. My kids used to have a little paddling pool which required filling every other day due to muddy feet & bird jobbies.

Now that's a good idea - especially as a 2000 litre pool would typically take a couple of hours to fill (you don't want to have to refill it every day).

Read and act accordingly....

Only 2000 litres but people are suffering because they haven't got 1 pint let alone 1 litre...Now tell me chucking 2000 litres of fresh water away isn't irresponsible....
