When my baby was born in March 2009, it was already the summer month. And so inflatable kiddie pools were on sale or have freebies. Although we were cash strapped at that time, we knew that we were gonna buy one eventually for our baby so we used our card. We did not want to regret the discounts.
We decided to buy a big one because we wanted to put it at my parents' house so that my daughter can look forward to going to her grandparents' home on weekends to go swimming. Additionally, we also wanted to play with our daughter so it has to have room for the three of us.
So the pool that we got is a colorful pool with these specifications: 90 inches x 22 inches, could hold up to 300 something gallons and is made of good quality vinyl. But just to prevent the pool from being scratched on the downside, we put the pool on the tiled area to further its life.
We got it really cheap at $16 and with a free Giant Bellows Foot Pump. It does require some work inflating it using the foot pumo, but it seemed like a breeze for my husband, so we don't have a problem with it. So far so good. I really trust these inflatable products by Intex Wet Set.
