Found 1st Sep 2016Made hot 1st Sep 2016
Not much to say about it, quick up pool, fun for that price. Can be bought now for next summer. They are selling them for about 50 pounds summer time, then at 17.50 its a bargain.
Might be store specific and store only?
There was 3 left in Musselburgh Tesco Extra in the seasonal aisle.

If anyone sees this in Essex let me know as my pump has died

How could this had happen? Was the pump running a lot? The motor inside is not that big though, the whole pump been mostly the filter and the motor as little room, then it might not be that strong? But indeed, the price of the pool and the pump is the same price then the pump itself...

And for those of us that speak English?

Just shy of 4000 litre max capacity. Nearly costs as much to fill as it does to buy haha

got one in lurgan NI a day or two ago

Don't buy this. I own one of it. The water is freezing cold in the pool, it's really hard to keep the water warm eventhough I use hot water from my solar panels. So I packed this up and planning to buy a smaller pool in which I can have some warm water

A cheap way of storing rainwater - 4000l .

not everyone has a water meter.

You don't say! oO But you better get used to the idea of having one, because they will be compulsory for most private residences before too long

No they won't be compulsory for existing properties... but for those 'off-meter' expect water charges to rise and thus incentivise people going over to a water meter. Its like the new 'Smart Meter' (gas+electricity) TV adverts .. doesn't actually say but you will NOT have to have a Smart meter installed, but there will be additional charges for not doing so. oO

It's likely most properties will end up with meters and effectively compulsory before too long.

The water industry act 1999 talks about water companies enforcing compulsory meters based on a variety of conditions. The conditions are very wide reaching and certainly lend more power to the water companies than the customer. While the government has said that there are no plans to bring forward compulsory metering and advertisements suggest it is still just an option, it's just a matter of time looking at future environmental agendas. The fact you can only avoid one in some areas by effectively accepting a financial penalty speaks volumes.

Conditions for legislating compulsory meters are more likely to become more wide reaching every year that passes, particularly regions of water scarcity. Several big water companies have already used the 1999 act to meter up hundreds of thousands of properties in the past few years with minimal resistance. Southern water was one of the biggest to mandate meters and completed that project this year.

So like I said, get used to the idea.

True, but I have lived in several 'water scarce' areas of the world...the UK is an Island Nation, surrounded by water ... plenty of coastal regions to put sea-water desalination plants there, especially in Essex, Kent Mind you, desalinated drinking water does take some getting used to... but approach might counter rising sea levels?!?

There might be plenty of place to put desalination plants around the country, but you won't find a penny to build or run them any time soon as they are massively expensive. The only one operating in this country does so because it serves London which pretty much has no choice.

ha ha, only compulsory on house purchase so if you dont move you cant be forced into one
