Too hot for your own backyard? Beat the heat with a refreshing dip in this inflatable oasis. Designed for up to four people, the 10-foot-wide Intex Easy Set Pool is not just any old inflatable, it's got a filter pump to keep the water clear (good thinking!) and it's a No. 1 bestseller on Amazon. But hurry! It's on sale now for over 63% off and we don't expect this deal to last.
The super simple set up is a definite plus, agrees this happy grandparent: "Instant pool. Literally inflate the top ring and fill with water. Was great for my 8–4 yr old grandkids and big enough for me to use a recliner float."
The Intex Easy Set is a true upgrade from your average blow-up pool, shoppers say. It's a "good size and durable" with puncture-resistant, three-ply material and a patented HydroAeration Technology that creates bubbles and keeps the water moving, fresh and clear.
Of the pump, a pleased shopper wrote, "It works wonderfully to keep the pool clean. We just open the pump and spray off the filter daily with our hose (we don’t plug the holes in the pool, just unplug the pump and be sure open the pump above the water line, so water doesn’t come out. Easy).
Intex recommends this 10-footer for up to four people, but this happy shopper disagrees: "It fits our family of five perfectly, We love it!"
