Replacement Filters
"My mum got this pool last year. We have had lots of fun in it and its continuing this year. We also could not find replacement filters for the pool. Our pool is a OBlue make and there is a website for OBlue that has supplies for these pools.
Hope this helps anyone with the same pool as ours.

Relatively Good Buy
"I bought one of these pools a few days ago for £49. Yesterday I went into the website looking for a filter to have a spare to hand but apparently they not stock the filters! So they sell the pools but not the replacement filters. What do we do when we have to replace the filter? Filters don't last long, I know because I have had similar pools for 5 years and unfortunately my last one needed replacing thus the reason I bought this one.
Another problem I find is the hose. Not flexible enough and with the heat will soon give out. The problem is when we need to replace the hose there is no plug for the inlet hose - so while you replacing that side of the hose, you either have to have someone holding the flow of the water with a palm of a hand or empty the pool below the level of the inlet - should we not have been supplied with a plug for the inlet side of the pool? Maybe I was missing a plug when I bought it? Has anybody got a plug with theirs?
For the filter I have had to come up with a plan, which I have not yet tried with this filter, but worked wonders with my previous filters! Wrap it some heavy cloth a put in the washing machine on low heat. Filters come out like new. Remember to wash under the tap before you put in the machine."

Very Good Value
"My mother in law purchased this for our children. Best buy. Its been great fun ever since for all of us. I agree that filter cloggs quickly. Could do with larger filter but otherwise, great value, and far bigger than it looks in picture.
Now, i've just noticed, even cheaper. unbelievable.
Great.

A good pool - excellent value for money
"Don't be misled by the rather poor picture of this pool. When you get it - it looks a lot better than the picture shown.
Considering that it only costs £49 - you get a lot for your money. It's well made and easy to set up - provided you read the instructions about using level ground.
To make the most of the pool - it's really a good idea to get a pool ladder to help people to not lean on the edge of the pool, and it teaches young children how to get in and out sensibly. Get the chemicals to treat the water - and a net to clean out the grass. When you take the effort to clean out the grass, you make life easier for the filter pump.
The cover fits easily - which I never thought it would.
Filling took about 6 hours.
Best thing about the pool.... it keeps the children in the garden and not trashing the house!!! Watch the children like a hawk!! Don't leave them alone for a minute. They can go head under in 2 seconds."

not sure its a good buy
"yes we bought this pool but nobody sells the filters which need to cleaned every couple of days other wise you don't get enough flow through the pump or they need to be replaced you would think B&Q would sell replacement items for the stuff they sell.???/"
