A pool for the hot weather

Grant wanted to get a small pool for us to cool off in now that the lovely hot summer weather has arrived. After shopping around he decided on this 3m pool. Not too big, not too small.

It's a clever design - first you lay it out ...

... then you pump up the ring around the top ...

... and once the ring is inflated you smooth out the floor of the pool and start filling it up:

The inflated ring floats at the top of the pool and rises as it fills and voila, you have somewhere to swim.

The boys are absolutely loving it and Grant and I have also enjoyed having somewhere to cool off. Hooray for lovely hot summer days!

  2. My parents have a pool like yours, and we love it! It's so great to just float around in it and cool off! Hope you get a lot of use out of yours!

  3. That brings back so many memories from when we were kids. (then you guys got your fancy pool.) Right now its snowing outside and I'm seriously considering mortgaging my house so we can come play.

  4. I am on my third pool like the one that you posted. Ours is 18 feet across and 5 feet deep. We put it up each year and take it down and store it at the end of the season. Each one of ours have lasted about 4 years. Cost is about equal to buy the kids a pass to the local city pool and the gas money spent on driving them to and from. Plus they are right in our backyard. I cannot imagine a hot Kansas summer without this pool in my backyard. Enjoy yours!
