Checklist For Inflatable Pools For Children

Age
  • Inflatable pools can already be used by babies who are able to sit stably.
  • Of course, the size of the pool must be adapted to the age of the child, that is, for babies a small compact pool is enough, for toddlers should already be purchased a larger pool.
Size
  • Inflatable pools are available in many different sizes between 1 and 3 meters in diameter.
  • The size depends on the number of people. Family pools are comparatively large and accordingly have space for many people. Children’s pool s are rather small, sometimes only one child fits in.
Durability
  • The durability of the pool depends on the thickness of the PVC material from which the pool is made. As a rule of thumb, the thicker the PVC sheet, the more robust the pool.
  • Furthermore, the durability of the inflatable pool increases with the number of air rings. Again, the more rings, the better. With about 3 rings, good stability is already guaranteed.
  • Many manufacturers also supply a repair kit with patches as an accessory to the pool. So if a hole or crack should occur, you can easily cover them with the patch.
Fun Factor
  • The design of the pool is especially important for children because when they play in the pool, it’s not just about swimming, but also about fantasy and adventure.
  • In terms of design, there are no limits to the pool, so there are inflatable pools in bright colors, on different themes (for example, beach), animals and cartoon characters.
  • You can also increase comfort with arm and backrests, while tarps and roofs keep the sun out.
  • In addition, there are many great accessories such as slides or water toys that provide exciting fun.
Safety
  • If the inflatable pool has many rings, the risk of injury decreases, as the air-filled rings, cushion falls and impacts.
  • When buying, also make sure that the pool is certified as free of harmful substances according to European standards, so that your child is not endangered.
  • Don’t let your kids out of your sight, even if the pool has rings as padding and is certified as toxin-free. The best protection is still an attentive parent.

FAQ About Inflatable Pools

Inflatable pool: How expensive?

While a baby pool already starts at 10€, you have to reckon with up to 150€ for large pools. In addition, the larger ones come with some accessories, such as pump, ladder and landing net. This may or may not be included, so there are often additional costs here.

What to do if the pool is green?

For small pools, the water should be drained and the pool thoroughly cleaned afterwards. When it is clean again, water can be added and the fun can continue.

When are babies allowed in the paddling pool?

As soon as a baby can sit, there is nothing to stop the fun of splashing around. This is usually the case from 6 months of age, but can also occur earlier or later, depending on the child’s development. Almost every child has fun in the water.
