Making the most out of the short-lived British summer is important, so why not do so by setting up a fast set swimming pool in your back garden! These pools are quick and easy to set up, so you can spend more time splashing around with family and friends in the sunshine. We have a fantastic range of styles and sizes for you to choose from, and some come with filters too.
Our fast set pools are round, so they don’t take up as much room in your garden and are ideal for socialising; the circular shape makes it easy to interact with everyone in the pool. The different designs can be paired with your outdoor dining set, and don’t forget a floor protector from our pool accessory range to protect your pool against leaks. Shop the collection at All Round Fun.
Measure the area you want to set up your pool. Make sure you leave an adequate amount of space around the pool for easy access and to install features like decking and pool covers.
Once you know where you’re going to set up your fast set pool, you’ll need to smooth and flatten the ground. The first step is to remove any debris like rocks and clumps of dirt, then you’ll need to flatten the ground by digging the higher points down to the lowest point. A flat surface is essential for keeping your pool stable, and it should be smooth to prevent tears and leaks.
Even if the ground is smooth, you should lay down a floor protector or an outdoor rug to ensure your pool has maximum protection against damage from debris.
The next step is to use an inflation pump to inflate the ring of the fast set pool.
Once it’s fully inflated, you can fill the pool up with water.
Once the pool has been filled, you can connect your filtration pump and pipework and turn it on. The filter pump shouldn’t be used when the pool is in use.
The benefits of owning a fast set pool
Low maintenance - Maintaining your fast set pool is easy and straightforward. You can keep the inflatable ring clean by wiping it down with a soft cloth. To maintain the quality of your pool water, you should test it daily and treat the water depending on the water test results.
Keep the pool water surface clean by skimming it with a pool skimmer, and cover the pool with a debris cover when it’s not in use. Finally, maintain your pool filter by washing down the cartridge and removing debris by hand every 6 months.
Easy to inflate and deflate - The main advantage of a fast set pool is how easy it is to inflate when you need it and deflate when you don’t. This means that as long as the ground is smooth and flat, you can set up your fast set pool at short notice or whenever you need it.
At the end of the season, you can store away your fast set pool to protect it from the winter elements while it’s not in use. This will make it last longer and reduce the risk of weather damage. To store away your pool, all you’ll need to do is empty the water, give it a quick clean, and deflate the ring. Then you can fold up the pool and put it in storage until next summer.
Comes in a range of sizes - Whether you want a small pool to lounge in or a larger pool for recreational swimming and socialising, you’ll be able to find the size you’re looking for with a fast set pool. Most fast set pools are round, which makes them perfect for interacting with others and for splashing around with your kids. While the round shape comes in large sizes, they work better in smaller gardens as they take up less room compared to rectangular pools.
Perfect for families and kids - You can make family time fun with a fast set pool. These pools are perfect for families because they’re big enough to play in and to practice swimming, while the shape makes it easy to monitor your little ones and reach them quickly if they need your help.
It’s also easier for them to hold onto the edge if they need to. You can also remove the safety ladders when the pool is not in use, so the kids can’t climb when you’re not around to supervise them.
