Kiddie Pools

Kiddie pools and pools for kids. Mistakes to avoid when choosing kid pools and kiddie swimming pools.

They're sometimes called baby pools and could be great for your youngster. 

You can find good deals at places like Costco and Sam's Warehouse.

There are many different reasons why you should buy small wading pools for your child. 

There really is no definite answer to the questions “how big are they” and “what are they”. They come in many different sizes, like the one below.

This will give you a good run-down:

  • Normally between 25 – 4,000 gallons
  • No deeper than 3 ft.
  • Strong vinyl construction or plastic
  • Small filtration system or none at all
  • Set up and installed by the owner
  • Great for smaller backyards or where space is limited
  • Price ranges anywhere from $15 - $50
  • You can even find dog pools for your best friend

Real Issues For A Kiddie Pools

There are really only a couple of issues that can occur:

  • Improper chemical and sanitation
  • Improper adult supervision

If you’re not planning on draining and refilling it each and every day you’ll need to properly sanitize it.

Most need just a very small dose of chemicals to ensure their safety so be sure to take the proper measurements and add all chemicals accordingly.

Normally you would use about 2oz. of Calcium Hypochlorite to bring the pool chlorine level up 1.0ppm for every 1,000 gallons.

If an accident does occur (poop or vomit) be sure to bring the chlorine level up to a minimum of 10ppm to kill any micro-organisms. If it's small enough you may just want to drain it and properly sanitize it using generic grocery store bleach.

The most important part is to understand proper swimming safety and adult supervision. Children can drown in 1 inch of water so always be there to ensure your child’s safety. It only takes a couple of minutes for a child to drown. By the time you get back the worst may have already happened. 

If you need to leave be sure to take the child/children with you to ensure their safety.

Kid's swimming pools are a great way to have your youngster splashing around and enjoying those hot Summer days. There’s also lots of swimming pool games you can play.

It’s all for fun.

Happy swimming and splashing around.
