Having had one of these a few points to be aware of

Be sure the ground / area you plan to put this on is as level as possible otherwise it might not go up properly, and may collapse if the water is higher in one side than the other.


secondly invest in a fitted top cover and or a thermal floating cover to help heat up the pool and help keep debris out

Finally, keep the pool and filters clean and the chemical levels and PH levels correct. Stagnant fouled water minimally will give you a stomach upset, worst case if legionella becomes present it could hospitalise someone.

Have fun, but stay safe.

It isn't wasted if you fill it up once and drain it after 4 months usage in the Autumn. You don't 'consume' water either, it's cycled and water is appalling mismanaged in this country and has been for years. The privatisation of water in this country has been an unmitigated disaster.

Great price! I've had one of these up for about 8 weeks now (slightly deeper though - 4ft?).
Some thoughts...
Ours is on the slant by about 1-2inches (2 inch un-level is about the max rec you can get away with) as it's on our patio which is obviously angled for rain drainage. No problems so far even with 8 x 12 year old school leavers in it creating a whirlpool
I have it sat on a foam base (mats) to stop the kids mashing their heads and to stop it snagging/tearing the base.
Cost me about £60 to fill it up on my meter, so have to factor in the sewage they will charge for the same amount.
Solar cover works well, but bear in mind these pools will only ever be about 18-22 degrees without heating, hotter than the sea though
Don't bother with the standard £100 heaters, they take about 1 day to heat up 0.5 degree and cost about £8 a day to run!
The other expensive part is the chlorine tabs in a floater, about 3-5 a week (weather dependent) and the pump filters which I'm changing every 2-3 weeks to keep the pool clean.
Oh and you'll need a good net/vacuum combo tool to pick up all the debris.
Otherwise all good!

When everyone and his dog is moaning that the world's going down the sh*tter, just remember we live in a time when average Joe can afford to have a swimming pool in his garden. Brilliant.

a lot of pool for 90 pound, im tempted
Would love this, probably take up most of my garden though. Shame they waited til nearly August though?
This looks amazing thanks for sharing.

Sadly I don’t have space for this
They had 1 10ft delivered to store last week and couldn't buy online
5 days before our hosepipe ban.

Sweet !
Ordered, I was going to queue up next Sunday but I didn’t want to risk losing it, almost ordered a 10 foot last night without all the accessories for £160, same brand too, then I saw this one on Aldi website last night.

It's so you can start filling now in time for next summer
Good price considering it comes with pump/filter and chemical kit

Silly question perhaps.... but how robust are these? Is the lining quite thin or quite durable? Notice it says it comes with repair patches so wondering if that means it's prone to splitting quite easily?
We have a 10 foot one we have put up every year for at least 5 and leave outside through the winter (metal frame parts in a bag, liner upside down) and it is still going strong.
We had one of these years ago and it was brilliant -this is great at the price especially if the heatwave continues - I agree about the thermal cover - really keeps the heat in
How much does 7.199 tonnes of water cost?
Also in Lidl. Same price and spec.

Cold for this reason, as Lidl better quality.

Surely water companies always charge by the cubic metre (m³)?

(And of course everyone knows that in a scientific system like the metric one, volume is based on the meter. And weight is based on the weight of pure water at a given volume. Ergo, 1m * 1m *1m = 1m³ or 1,000 litres. Or 0.1m x 0.1m x 1.0m = 0.001m³ or 1 litre. And one litre of 'pure' water weight one kilogramme.)

I bought the 8ft intex from amazon. After 3 days of filling it up, I saw something small and thin swimming inside the pool. At first they looked like tadpoles but the were wiggly like maggots. What were they?? I have loads so I had to take all the water out.

I have the intex cover from amazon too.

Any help would be appreciated what they were?
I'm still waiting for chlorine tablets to come

Is a kilogram actually not based on the mass of a platinum iridium alloy held by the international beureu of weights and measures?

I know! It's really put me off. They are already expensive stuff then you get things growing in them.

It's none of those in your link, it looks like mosquito larvae but I have a bit of water left so I will see if there is anything hiding and take a picture

I hope you are not going to let your children in that pool as I dread to think what they could catch without a pump, filter, testing kit or chemicals.

Can I ask how u keep it clean? Mine has been up nearly 3 weeks (longest I've managed to keep it clean so far) but it started to go cloudy now.. do u use chlorine granules as well as tablets?
How do you empty these? Is there a way to connect a hose to the pool to let the water out slowly and somewhere that won’t upset the neighbours?
Multifunction tablets are the way to go, in a floating dispenser.

They have an outlet valve in the bottom you can plug into a hose pipe. If you have a decent length hose reel and a downhill garden you can drain to the streets sewer or your house's outlet drain, otherwise you need to buy a pump as you can't drain water uphill(!).

Your order will be delivered on 31/07/2018.

The courier will be in touch by text message about your delivery.


Looking forward to this, thanks op
As much water is lost through leaks as is consumed, Plug the leaks and we wouldn't need hosepipe bans. A country as wet as ours should never have the need for bans.
