What could be better than a nice cool down in the summer, which at the same time is associated with a lot of fun? A paddling pool for kids is the perfect solution for this. With countless different designs with a slide, water sprayer or a plain model, as well as different sizes, there’s something for everyone.
The checklist and product recommendations will make your purchase decision easier and help you find the best paddling pool for kids. Have fun splashing around!
- You can use paddling pools for your baby as soon as he or she can sit safely. This is usually the case at 6 or 7 months.
- The water depth may be 15 to 20 cm.
- For toddlers, the water depth can be 30 cm and for older children 50 cm. Children’s paddling pools are usually not deeper anyway.
- Children must always be supervised when splashing.
- Inflatable paddling pools are already available with a diameter or length of 80 or 100 cm. The water requirement here is less than 50 liters.
- Somewhat more comfort is offered by larger pools up to family pools with a length of over 3 meters and a width of about 2 meters. Here, the filling quantity can then already amount to 850 lit ers, depending on the depth.
- A children’s paddling pool should preferably have separate air chambers so that it can be adjusted in height. Even if one ring is damaged, the pool remains stable.
- For more fun, an integrated water slide and for more comfort, a seating option or an inflatable floor. A roof is useful when the pool is in the sun.
- There are also paddling pools made of hard plastic. They are the quickest to set up. You can also use them as a sandbox.
- Inflatable paddling pools are made of flexible plastic. Mostly it is PVC or vinyl.
- The material may contain harmful plasticizers.
- The product description will tell you if the product is BPA-free or PVC-free.
- In any case, the children’s pool should have a TÜV test mark. Only then does it meet the applicable EU pollutant and safety standards.
- An integrated drain valve makes it easier for you to change the water and empty the pool.
- To avoid damage, the paddling pool should always be placed on a straight and clean surface. Stones, roots and sharp branches can damage the material.
- The patches enclosed with the product allow for an uncomplicated repair, should a hole in the foil occur.

FAQ About Paddling Pools
The water change period of a few days can be extended by certain measures. These include a cover in the evening, chlorine and daily cleaning with the help of a landing net. This way you only need to change the water about every 2 weeks.
As described above, the water should be changed at least every 2 weeks, i.e. old water out and new water in. If the paddling pool remains uncovered, the water change is necessary more frequently.
As soon as a baby can sit, nothing stands in the way of fun splashing around. This is usually the case from 6 months, but can also occur earlier or later, depending on the child’s development. Almost every child has fun in the water.
A pump is especially necessary for large pools from about 3 meters. For pool sizes smaller than this, cleaning with a net and possibly a pool vacuum cleaner and chlorine is sufficient.
At outdoor temperatures from 25 degrees, splashing around is fun. However, the water temperature for babies should not be below 20 degrees. As soon as you see signs that your baby is freezing, you should take him out. These include shivering and bluish lips.
We recommend inflating the paddling pool with a pump if it is 2 m or larger. This is done by inserting its opening into the valves of the pool.
You can move your hand slowly around the outside to feel the air coming out or listen for a soft hiss. Patches are usually included.
