Best Kiddie Pools for 2017

Summer is pretty much here and the time to bust out the kiddie pools is right around the corner. Putting out the kiddie pools will keep the kids entertained for hours on those hot days.  I know my kids will play in them all afternoon if I let them.  With so many cool options to choose from, how do you decide?  We’ve searched through tons of them to pick our list for the “Best Kiddie Pools of 2017”.




For this list, we chose kiddie pools that were not permanent for the summer.  All of these pools are meant to be put away after use.  They require minimal maintenance and no chemicals in the water.  Most are inflatable or hard plastic and require little set up to get swimming.

Before you purchase your new kiddie pool you’ll want to make sure of a few things;

1) You will want a level space to put it on. Also, measure the spot to make sure it fits.

2) Make sure it is near a hose so that you can fill it up.

3) Make sure that it is appropriate for the kids that will be using it.  Pay attention to the size and age recommendations.

4) Think about how you will want to empty it when you are done and where the water will go when drained.

5) Some of the kiddie pools on the list are inflatable.  If you choose an inflatable pool, you will also want to take a look at air pumps so that you can easily blow up the pool when needed.  Many of these pumps also have deflators on them as well.  You will not want to forget the pump.
