ok cheers

"Family swim centre" lol. I remember the days when we used to call these things plain old paddling pools.

We have had one of these for a couple of years, they are a good size. We bought a cover for it last year for about £8......sorry cant remember where, we usually have ours up for the whole 6 weeks holiday, using the treatment packs from Co-op or B&Q, no filter with them but to be honest a good fine mesh net on a pole is just as good!


But 1302 litres to fill - that's 1.3 x an IBC!!!

Over 2 hours to fill at 10ltr/min

I think I would check how fast my tap runs before buying this.

We have one of these and it's perfect for a 6 and 8 year old. At this price it's an absolute bargain. Heat and Rep added. I think the capacity is misleading because nobody would fill these to the top. We fill about 3/4 with low to medium water pressure and it takes under an hour!

Have ordered one as a this price they are almost disposable if it wasn't for the landfill issues!


What sort of Pump does this use? i asked the lady in argos and she replied "The pump that needs is 19.99" are there any cheap pumps for this?
