Managed to get one of these last weekend, collected from Sainsburys.

It is very important to ensure ground is relatively flat otherwise pool will sag.

Pump works well, replacement filters are £7 for a pack of 2 from Amazon.

Factor in that you will also need a chlorine/bromine, and test strips, unless you plan to keep emptying water.

It really does take 4 hours+ to fill.

Also to warm things up, get a solar cover costing approx £60, and get the kids short wet suits, a lot cheaper than an electric pool heater.

Still good value for the fun it'll give.

Sunshine due end of next week!

Would a hairdryer, carefully balanced on the side of this, be strong enough to warm it up? Just asking for the mother-in-law!

Filter a little under-powered but does the job If left on long enough. Good for the price and will deffo go up in price when the weather is nice again.....If your looking at getting it bite now as it will be out of stock when the weather comes back. Just be aware you will never get it back in the box so think about storing it when not in use....


I dont think anyone ever has got a pool back in its box

No, I was lucky to pick one up locally for £200 that has been hardly used.

This is good value with the cover. Kids love it and will spend all day messing about in it. Just upgraded to an 18ft frame one 👌
Steve where is the 18 ft one from ?

I am but we will only need to fill it once this season as it comes woth a quality filter and floor cleaning tool. Happy to take the hit as I got it for less than I was willing to shell out.
It’s been this price for several weeks now and previously posted.
Needs pool heater otherwise it’s bloody freezing.

Looks a cracking pool must take a couple of days to fill it.

I put 3 chlorine tablets but water still goes green. I also use algaecide liquid but to no help. Any advice on how to keep the water clear and clean. Thanks
Any recommendations on choline tablets, etc to keep clean. Also I find the cover is useless. Any tips?

You'll need chlorine granules to shock the water and then top up daily with granules or use tablets.

We're using the Clear Water stuff from The Range and it's brilliant, our water is crystal clear.

Chlorine granules to shock and then we have the 4 in 1 tablets in a float which last around 5 days each.

Dont forget test strips.

You need to shock the water and then keep maintaining a daily dose.

Granules to shock and 4 in 1 tablets to maintain.

I would hazard a guess that you arent using enough tablets, not enough holes open on your float or you didnt shock the water initially.
I bought this last time it was this price, took it back as the cover is poor and rubbish. Filter not great either.

We had a slow puncture in top ring and had to return 3 times before i had enough and got money back.

I would suggest looking at a different brand, not impressed with these.
John_Atkin06/06/2020 20:19

Probably still cheaper than taking the family to the local swimming pool
In my experience, these are freezing whatever the weather unless you can fill it with hot tap water - which will cost a lot too.

It will take ages to fill, and unless you treat and filter properly it will be green within a couple of days.

Kids are bored of it within a week as you can't really swim or dive it in, and it's a permanent drowning hazard for little ones (they can open the cover).

Honestly, either just get a cheap paddling pool for splashing about in, or do it properly and get a hot tub.

Ditto! Additional extras were a decent ground sheet, chlorine tablets and float, tester strips, running the filter pump, and filling costs (which is doubled as you need to pay the equivelent for waste water as well). Used hot water to top-up before use, instead of water heater.
Top ring had a slow puncture, which resulted in loss of water overnight. Returned to argos after six weeks, and surprisingly was immediately given a full refund!
Make sure the ground is absolutely level, or it will sag to one side, and eventually spill its contents (including kids!!)

how do you dive into a hot tub? - surely that is more falling in trying to avoid dropping the prosecco in.

Not doing it properly though and on the cheap DIY's/makers could look at making a the can based heat exchanger with a pump although hoops with black bags over also act as solar collectors when not in use and a sunny day.

Either way you are not doing a swimming pool or a hot tub properly at sub £65

I saw one of those life hack things the other day that says put black bin liners on the top in the morning and the sun will warm the water a lot faster than without.

This is what my pool looks like. I’m using chlorine tablets - one in the floater which is fully open and I dropped two on the floor - Ph level was 7.2 to 7.3. I also use Algaecide from Amazon (has a lot of good reviews) but I still struggle. I have tried filter pump for 10 hours but next day the water was green.
Could you suggest shock product and 4 in 1 product and I will try the same. Thanks

Empty the water, that doesnt look saveable to me.

I use the clear water multifunction tablets and clear water stabilised chlorine granules from The Range.

My routine:

Fill with water, add 5 heaped teaspoons of granules to warm water then slowly add to the pool and leave for 24 hours with the filter running.

Add 2 or 3 tablets to the floater and add to the pool with 2 slots open on the float (after the 24hr shock period). Just remove float when using the pool and add tablets every week or so when they're fully dissolved.

Do not throw the tablets directly into the pool.

Use test strips to determine chlorine levels, ph levels and adjust chemical levels up/down according to the size of the pool.

Thank you, water is being emptied at the moment. I will buy both clearwater products from The Range and when I fill the pool again (when the next heatwave comes) I will follow the above routine. I didn’t realise I had to put chemicals from day one. I started putting chloride etc after one week.

Many thanks again.
With filter running how long can you keep the same water in there? I bought the 950l one from argos and have to pour water out and dry it at end of day as its not sunny again for few days after. Whats the best advice?

I bought this 2 weeks ago for this price from Argos, if your ground isn't perfectly flat it changes shape to look like an eye shape, it's not very deep but does the job, I also bought a solar cover and can highly recommend it, it doesn't heat the pool as such but does take a lot of the chill out, but I had a cover for £15 delivered, £60!! They saw you coming

Last year I had the same water from end of May till September, shocked it theb dosed it with a floater and had the filter running about 12 hours a day. It never went green and the water was still fine when I emptied it out.

The kids loved it and went in after school some times and used it loads in the summer holidays. They want it up again now but with both them playing in the garden while we are both working from home (inside the house) it does not feel safe enough with a 4 and 7 year old :/ . Maybe I will break in a couple of weeks and move my desk and screen outside 😃

Yet. I get working with my 3yr old. Either I have to stay there or his mum as his brothers are too busy messing about in the pool. Whats the trick to get the water warmer? I have this chav valley 950l one from argos. Some say black bin liners will help water warm up faster?
