Summer fun, here we come! This PVC pool with independent layers is robust and likely to survive the summer, even with heavy use by family and friends. I used this electric pump to inflate it. It’s large enough for the adults to stretch their legs, and if not filled to the top, perfect for your toddler to use the seats for climbing and to splash around. Several people find room in it at the same time; about three children or two adults. I was able to lie flat and fully submerge, and I’m 5’9.
I only filled it up to Lyons Cub’s knees, so it didn’t pose any danger (under constant parental supervision, of course) and the water always stayed nicely warm. He had lots of fun filling it himself with the water hose!
The pool has a bottom drain outlet, and we put folded yoga mats under the drain to create enough room over the grass to let the water out. How much more convenient than using a bucket to empty out the pool when the water is dirty! You won’t be able simply to flip it over – it’s very heavy when full. It has two headrest pillows on the sides where the cushions are, and there are two cup holders for a cool drink. We put Lyons Cub’s baby bottle in there. Finally, a pool I could be in together with my son! And if this one is still too small for you, what about a giant pool with a bench inside?
