Transform Your Backyard Space: A Comprehensive Guide to Building Your Own Inflatable Swimming Pool

Inflatable Pool

Product Introduction

It’s summertime and you’re probably considering driving to the beach and going for a swim. But then you probably can’t take a break or you just prefer the comfort of your home–but you still want to relax in a pool of water after a long and hot day. If this is the case, we’ve got the perfect solution for you–an inflatable swimming pool.

Unlike other types of at-home swimming pools, inflatable swimming pools are a more versatile and user-friendly option. They are movable, easy, and quick to set up. This also means you can easily store it away when the winter season comes around.

With an inflatable pool, it’s easier to cool off during the summer months than by taking a quick dip in your very own pool. However, it’s advisable to purchase one before the summer weather hits, because they tend to sell out quickly.

In addition, inflatable swimming pools are pretty easy to maintain as you have the option to put it up or take it down, with no need for maintenance until the next time you use it for your water activities. Read on to find out how to set up an inflatable pool, so you can enjoy your summer staycation with your own backyard pool!

Where Can I Use the Inflatable Pool (Applicable Scenarios)

There are various places where you could use an inflatable swimming pool. Some of them include:

Residential Backyards: One of the most common uses for inflatable pools is in residential backyards. They provide a convenient and cost-effective way for families to cool off during hot summer months without the expense and maintenance of a permanent pool.

Campgrounds or Outdoor Retreats: Inflatable pools are also popular at campgrounds or outdoor retreats where there might not be natural bodies of water nearby. They provide a fun way for campers to relax and cool off after a day of hiking or outdoor activities.

School or Community Events: Schools and community centers often use inflatable pools for events like field days, fundraisers, or carnivals. They provide a safe and enjoyable activity for children and families to participate in together.

Therapy or Rehabilitation Centers: Inflatable swimming pools are sometimes used in therapy or rehabilitation settings for aquatic therapy sessions. The buoyancy of the water can help alleviate pressure on joints and muscles, making it an effective form of exercise for those recovering from injuries or with mobility issues.

How To Use Inflatable Pool

When choosing an inflatable pool, you should consider the pool size that caters to your family’s needs—as the larger the pool, the more maintenance will be required. Here’s how to set up your inflatable swimming pool:

Prepare the Ground

First thing first, you want to smoothen the garden or area where you intend to place your pool. Use a rake and shovel to smoothen the area and dig out bumps and stones. You can also pour out sand on the lawn to give the swimming pool floor a smoother feel.

Place the Tarp on the Ground

Place the Tarp where you want the swimming pool to sit. Then place some weight on the 4 corners of the tarp to weigh it. If you plan to use a pool pump or heater, place the tarp close to an electric source. Ensure there aren’t any tear holes in the tarp.

Position the Pool on the Tarp

Place the inflatable pool at the center of the tarp. Ensure to adjust it so the pumping machine is facing the electrical outlet. After placing the pool on the tarp, stretch out the tarp from beneath the pool so you don’t feel ripples at the bottom of the pool during use.

Inflate the Pool

When inflating the pool ring, you need to be careful not to overinflate it so it doesn’t pop. You can use a pool pump or hand pump, to safely pump air into the pool ring.

The pool hoses have clamps, so you might need a screwdriver to tighten it. Every inflatable pool model has varying set up instructions. Check your user guide to find out how to set it up.

Generally, the hoses have labels that show which goes to the pump and top the pool. Check your pool manual for symbols like + and – and find out their meaning. However, don’t plug the pump in until the pool is filled up.

Fill Up the Inflatable Pool 

After connecting the pump hoses, fill up the inflatable pool with water. Now that you’ve filled the inflatable pool with water, you can add chemicals to the water to keep it safe. Then, place a pool cover over the top of the pool. You can also take a sample of your pool water to a pool and spa place.
