Make waves with these bargain pools as the heatwave is about to hit Britain


OUR summer may have gone off the boil but according to the forecasters the weather is due to warm up – and we’re in for a hot weekend. 

But cooling down in the heat need not mean splashing the cash.

Enjoy the heatwave with these bargain pools

Sales of paddling pools on Amazon have soared in the past few weeks amid hopes of  scorching summer weather like we had early last month.

But don’t dip into your savings. These pools are sure to swim-press . . . 

THE TINY SPLASH PAD. If you have little ones about, you can get a little three-ring pool from Aldi for £5.99. You can choose from either Mickey Mouse or Disney Princess. It’s great for kids from the age of two upwards. 

It is also cheaper than the Intex three-ring pool sold at Sports Direct for £12.99.

SAVE: £7

THE FAMILY/PURSE-FRIENDLY POOL. Instead of paying £34.99 for the Bestway rectangular family pool at, get the similar Kid Connection pool from Asda for £25.
