    For those of you with access to a makro card - they are doing the intex 8ft easy set pool for 19.99 plus VAT (£23.49) from 22nd June.

    They are also doing the intex 15ft frame pool for £174.99 plus VAT - though this is no such a good deal as I have seen them cheaper on eBay

  • the paddling pool is 8ft accross and made out of thick plastic stuff.
    you have to inflate the top ring to keep its shape (i blew it up by huffing and puffing and it took me about 5 mins) and fill it with a hose pipe. i would say it is about foot and a half deep approx but as i have not set it up properly yet im not 100% but it looks good for the kids when its hot

    I bought the Intex one from Makro for £19.99 plus VAT - it is great - Inflatable ring at the top - blown up by vacuum cleaner in a few seconds.
    It is about 3 foot deep and looks built to last. It took about 3.5 hours to fill up though - and the kids love it !

    It has an optional filter so I might get one of those and use some old radiators painted black to make a solar heater !

    If you are going to France this summer you can get the same pool as in Netto for about £15 (depends on rate at the time)

    For about £35 you can get a 10ft pool with electric pumped filter.

    Lids are about £5

    Groundsheets about £2

    All from Hyper U or Le Clerc

    The best place currently is makro £14.99 +VAT £17.61 - this is exactly the same as all the other 8ft pools

    if you live anywhere near kempton market, sunbury (thursdays only), they had some down there today for just £15! They were big and inflatable, but im afraid im awful at guesstimating the size of things.
    on another stall you could buy a box of two fans, i desktop and 1 on a stand for just £12!

    hope this helps someone.

    Dunno if this helps (from the Makro Mail):

    Also, I've been after one recently from Argos - 8ft Kiddies pool, reduced from £19.99 to £15.99, however, everywhere else I've found are selling this one at £29.99. Unfortunately, none in stock (surprise surprise!).

    Edit: Finally got one from the Middlesbrough Argos :D
  • can anyone just buy from makro, or do you have to have a business or something?
