I have a mahoosive paddling pool, that the kids can swim in, does that count? Currently 6 kids in it as I speak. I can float leisurely in it when they are not around.

OK I need some help here. How do I stop the water going green in our 10 ft pool? We put chemicals in and have a filter already.

I would love a 12 ft semi rigid one. Anyone recommend theirs?

GingerIgnoramus Wed 01-Jul-09 17:37:19

you need to scopp all the grass out, and are oyu using enough chlorine?

PrincessToadstool Wed 01-Jul-09 17:40:28

Have a brand new 12ft one in packaging. Don't want a big cruddy patch of grass from it

GingerIgnoramus Wed 01-Jul-09 17:41:17

but who cares - by then its Autumn - we resewed ours last year and it was perfect again in about 4 weeks

PrincessToadstool Wed 01-Jul-09 17:41:29

Also what on earth is a pool hoover

Lulumama Wed 01-Jul-09 17:41:39

yes, have to get all the bits out of it after use.

our grass grew back , although the lawn was bald for a while

GingerIgnoramus Wed 01-Jul-09 17:42:11

itsa stick with a bag on the end you shove your hose on ti..

oh ill show you

PrincessToadstool Wed 01-Jul-09 17:43:10

Yes maybe. DS only a baby though - bought the pool when pregnant as visions of resolving swollen legs in it, but it was summer 07 and frankly shit

Can a pool and a 20 month old mix? I mean he is never left alone anyway but am a paranoid type

PrincessToadstool Wed 01-Jul-09 17:43:35

Stick with a bag... can't wait to see it

GingerIgnoramus Wed 01-Jul-09 17:44:28

cant find one.
its a stick that runs water through it and catches grass in a net bag at the end

TrinityRhino Wed 01-Jul-09 17:46:23

we have a 12 foot metal framed one

had it three days


but I am scared about gecko trying to get into it herself when we aren't watching

PrincessToadstool Wed 01-Jul-09 17:49:01

Ok is that not a filter?
Academic if I never put the thing up.

Got a birth pool I could use, much smaller

GingerIgnoramus Wed 01-Jul-09 17:49:56

no oyu have to do it
the filter you turn on and leave

A question pool owners - I have one of these 15 foot easy up things with an inflatable ring around the top. Yesterdya when i was trying to fill it I hadn't inflated the ring properly (oops) and hundreds of gallons of water swooshed over the garden and almost flooded the kitchen. Its currently half full and I have inflated the ring properly this time but I realise that it seems to have filled lolling over to one side, rather than with its circular footprint flat on the ground, which means if I refill it, I think the same thing will happen again? Is that correct? Do I have no option but to drain it, make sure the footprint is properly flat this time and start all over again?

Lulumama Wed 01-Jul-09 17:53:11

yep, you have to get it flat and as wrinkle free on the bottom as you can before you start filling.

GingerIgnoramus Wed 01-Jul-09 17:54:34

yes I think so.
i am entertained at myself giving out al this advice when DH does it all!

PrincessToadstool Wed 01-Jul-09 18:01:11

maybe DH could do a webchat

hmm might get it up (POOL) at weekend if dry

GingerIgnoramus Wed 01-Jul-09 18:27:09
