Sounds like you need an archimedes screw.
Reserved, thanks.
If you have a hosepipe ban just leave it outside and let the rain fill it!
hosepipe ban? LOL what happens if you break it?
No hoes pipe bans round here think I'll buy two

Fill your er ... Pools people
16 inch water slide? That will be a lot of fun!
Hammer the water meter

I think its a good price for the beach ball and pool alone to be honest. Hot

No you have to use hand held containers.. what you need is a lot of containers and a lot of people
just reserved. Thanks!
I've got this exact pool. It's great, but what they don't tell you is that you need a filter pump and water cleaning tablets, and possibly a heater, to make this worth having. Leave this pool up and full for a week without those things and it will be covered in a thin later if algae. If you fill it and leave it less than a week then you're warring water loire a good 'un. The filter pump, cleaning stuff and heater have set us back about £100. The pool was only £15!
Apologies for the typos... that part should come with a warning that it was typed using Swype!

Yes, I agree. The water in the same pool we had last year became dirty quickly as the cover for the top often became dislodged in windy/rainy weather; y'know... a typical British Summer.

Also, if you have any pets that are likely to prod the pool surround with their sharp claws then you may need a puncture repair kit too.

The Pool takes ages to inflate with air too.
we had a 12 foot pool like this and it had a cover - cover was hopeless and it took ages - - well over an hour, maybe2 or 3- to fill even with a hose

way too cold

had a filer and pump but it still ended up with leaves and mould - binned it after 2 uses

waste of money - go to a proper indoor pool or put decent cover over it
And if you use a water heater with it , you will be surprised with electricity bill as well. I learned it in the hard way, binned the pool and accessories . Now all of us go to the local swimming pool, a lot warm water and large enough to swim also lot cheaper than this
Cold from me
If you have a sunny garden you could make a quick solar heater using black agricultural pipe coiled up, would save loads on heating it.
Any way to avoid the £5.95 deliver charge?....
Those arent water guns, THESE are water guns!! ...

now that we have a water meter we pretty much screwed...our bill before the water meter and after has jumped up with similar usuage..good deal though
Just got reserved the last one in my local store.
Not actually sure we'll fit it in the garden. Not convinced I want to spend all day filling it up with a bucket either!!
Then there's the possibility of the dog/cats puncturing it......
I love the comments about the water being cold too...... Never considered using the hot tap as well as the cold??

You really don't understand outside pools, do you?
We have one of these for our hot tub parties. Great times, myself, the wife, the neighbours and a bottle of cava. For that addd jacuzzi effect I recommend a bicycle track pump: Aldi have some hot deals on these!!!!

Just eat beans & pulses a few hours before.
We have the 10ft one and agree about the water becoming dirty very quickly ( might be something to do with half the neighbourhood kids queuing at the door oO ) We fill with cold from the outside tap and also hot from the kitchen tap so its luke warm , have got a filter that came with it but really dont think it makes much difference same as with the tablets , got a heater off Ebay fairly cheap but too costly and didnt make any difference so we just stick with running the hot in before they/we get in
