Seems like an average price for the pool, but you get the water filter pump, repair kit, and a cover included in the £100 price. Its Argos, so you'll have to pay the £3.49 delivery charge (there are click & collect options for me, but I can't recommend that as it isn't essential).

You can get it for cheaper online from various stores, but some of the sellers seem to be struggling with both stock and delivery — one of them has had about 25 terrible reviews in the last few days alone. So it is what it is, and Argos are normally pretty good for delivery. And you get the extras, like the pump and cover. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with an air pump, which is strange, but they are pretty common in a household.

"The 12 foot quick up pool would make a great addition to your garden. When the sun is shining, kick back and relax in this plush pool. It's great outdoor fun for the kids and comes complete with a filter pump and a cover.

Composed of PVC.

Includes 1249 litre free standing filter pump."

Stay strong pal, It’s bad enough for people with families to go through this lockdown but to have lost your wife and be alone afterwards is really sad and I’m sorry to hear that.

Totally cool with addition of dedicated circuit for 6Kw heater combined with 3Kw and huge steam in middle of winter. It cost £48 roughly to heat per day but for a few days 15 years ago, total bliss. Although i think mine was 10,000 litre version. When finished with, sliced it up and used as dpc for cabin floor. Story shared.

£48 per day to heat?
You'll also need a pool net, some chlorine tablets and a test kit.

You needed a heat pump instead as they are very cheap to run in comparison.

And the most important part is don’t even bother with test strips as they are a waste, invest in a 100% reliable Taylor Test kit if you want clean and clear water.

You are still in shock, mental health has never been more of a focus and is not irrelevant. Talking helps, I would recommend listening to Ricky Gervais podcast with Karl pilkington and Steve that seemed to help others and it made me feel better, not sure why but just hearing others talk about random stories seem to help (they also mentioned this in the podcast).
Hey Spartan. You've shared your story mate. That's the first step. Its not right and not fair what happened but your not alone. You got every right to feel angry. People care give them a chance.

Not being able to have a proper funeral has been probably the most difficult thing for me to get my head around with this virus. I am sorry for your loss. Sharing your story means that at least we can all spend a minute thinking about you and your wife. Thanks for sharing.

So sorry, Spartan. I really can not imagine how you are feeling. Thanks for sharing your story.

Re the post... You need absolutely flat ground for these pools, or the sides will capsize, and send the occupants down the garden in a sea of water! Appart from the power/pump and chlorine costs, please also concider the cost of filling it. At 12ft, this will require a fair amount of water!

That’s good to know thanks, I just realised it had been a couple of days since he’d been back.
Hopefully all is ok - or as ok as can be.
Heart breaking.
