Picked this up today from b&m , castle vale store. Lots on the shelf, been after one for a while and seemed decent price. This one didn't come with filter/pump.

Good price, spent £20 last week in morris ons. Beware you need to fill these up with water to the top, as top ring floats on water. You can't use them half full. Took 2 hours to fill from outside tap on constantly. Flooded garden when I emptied it 2 days later. Great fun though.

Oh wow! Good job our waters not on a meter! Does the water stay ok for a few days? I bought a cover from smyths so that will stop the leaves :-)

Yep water stays fine, just a lot of grass turns water green, with kids jumping in and out. Yep no good if you are on a water meter.

Thanks for the advice :-)

These 8ft pools holds almost 2,000 litres of water. So depending on your Water company, I estimate that the cost to fill to be around £4. Heat .

Hot these are on offer in Tesco for £20 ATM

we've just bought a chlorine dispenser and bunch of 20g tablets off amazon ... should keep the water clean and the bottom algae free for a bit longer and save on flooding the garden too frequently!

thanks for the info - thats good to know as I am on a water meter

another piece of advice is to buy a cheap cover. otherwise birds will land on the inflatable ring to drink the water, and their claws put tiny holes in the ring so you're having to top the air up every day. i know, because it happened to me. metal frame pool for me next summer, but good price for anyone that wants a fast set.

Thanks for the advice too, manage to pick a cover up in smyths for under £4 so really pleased. I'm a ready to go now, just need the sunshine! :-)
