Our Take

Grab your mermaid tail and take a dip in this amazing 30-feet long pool. The oval shape provides enough space to entertain friends and family while being able to live out your childhood dreams. Of course, the pool comes with an A-Frame ladder that allows you to trade in your fins for (what's that word again?...) feet when you decide to leave.

Things are starting to heat up around here and that calls for one thing: a pool! So build this bad boy up, kick back, and pour yourself a thirst-quenching beverage.

I have bought other snap together pools but this is by far the best in durabilty.The steel frame is built to easily assemble but it's strength is way more improved.It's easy as well to disassemble and store away which makes years of use without weatherization possible.The value is also a big bonus,way more affordable than others. ...read more

As we're counting down the days to summer, we're also dreading bug infestations! Thankfully, you won't have to worry about any creepy crawlers getting into your pool. This rectangular 52-inch frame features a Skimmer Plus filtration system that keeps your water bugs-free.

If you like the idea of having a pool but don't want to go through countless steps to build it, an inflatable pool might be the way to go. The Intex Easy Set can be pumped up in less than 10 minutes via a simple connection that even a non do-it-yourself type person can do. Best of all, the pool can be easily stored in your attic or basement following the season to avoid any exterior damage.

I bought this for my great niece and nephew and they loved it! They're 4 and 6 so it was the perfect size for them and also left room for me to sit in and sunbathe! I enjoyed watching them splash around and play while cooling off in the heat instead of being inside on electronics! ...read more

What’s better than an ice cold beer on a blistering summer day? Being able to cool off in some cold water, of course! But unlike the beach, this pool won't leave you feeling icky with sandy residue at the end of the day.

While we may have outgrown this nostalgic 90's throwback, it's still a favorite to splash around on those hotter-than-usual days. Thanks to its compact size, it's never been easier to turn your boring backyard into this season's go-to spot.

I have seen/used several of these pools at different homes/parties since I was a kid. They have good durability for a blow up pool. Even with kids climbing in and out, bouncing on the sides (I do not recommend), etc. the pools lasted several summers. Do be sure to keep as much debris as possible out, to ensure that you do not pop/puncture the sides. After all, it is an inflatable pool! Several children 8 and under can fit in it at a time and still have room to move. For bigger kids/adults, keep in mind that you should limit the number of people in the pool for a more comfortable/relaxing experience. :-) ...read more
