Buying A Paddling Pool
The sun’s out and it’s looking good for the week. So, time to think about getting a paddling pool.
Here’s a list of things to look for when buying one. Always check the age suitability for each product carefully. Children should be under constant supervision when using any kind of pool or water-play.
1. The quality of the plastic in inflatable paddling pools can vary widely
Choose a good brand such as Intex or Bestway with a repair kit included.
2. Pop-up pools take very little time to assemble
And unlike inflatables, don’t need a pump.
3. Frame pools are more sturdy, last longer and can be deeper
Check age suitability and supervise children at all times.
4. Use a chlorine-free water treatment to ensure the paddling pool water stays fresh
5. A pool with a sunshade can be a useful way to protect a young child’s skin from sun damage
6. Some paddling pools come with fun bits – like water sprays – added on
7. Some paddling pools are more than just paddling pools
8. Electric pumps save on time and effort if you have an inflatable pool
