Walmart Canada: Intex Pool only $198
Walmart Canada has a bunch of Canada Day door crasher deals that you will want to take advantage of. The big boy in this offer is the Intex 18ft x 10ft x 42in Oval Frame Pool Set for only $198!
I could not find this pool many places in Canada so I price compared with the USA. This pool costs $309.99 at Target US and $399.20 at Home Depot US. No matter where I looked for this pool, I could not find it for under $300 USD. Thus, this is a fantastic deal from Walmart Canada.
This pool comes with the filter pump, ladder, ground cloth, debris cover, set-up and maintenance DVD, and the pool itself. The Oval Frame Pool is supported by steel frames, which are powder coated for rust resistance. The drain plug will connect to a garden hose so water can be drained away from pool or house area to make sure you aren't flooding your basement!
An oval pool is a great alternative to a round pool for back yards that are narrower. It also works well for kids learning to swim as they have more distance to cross so they can pretend the pool is a lane. The longer form also works well for water sports as you can have two teams, one on each end, and have some space in between for ball play. This pool has a huge capacity of 2,885 gallons and really makes hot summer days far more bearable.
I always wanted a pool when I was a child. I loved water, swimming, and absolutely hated the heat. For me: pools were the greatest thing in the world and anyone who had one was the luckiest kid on earth. Of course, when I was a child, these pool kits where much more expensive. It is amazing that you can buy a family sized pool for just $200 now. Not only that, Walmart offers free shipping on all orders - even large items like this pool. No need to worry about transportation, just plan to be home when your new pool arrives at your door.
As this is a doorcrasher deal, I assume the offer expires at midnight but it does not actually say on the website. We will have to wait and see.
Anyone have a backyard pool like this? If you do, drop us a comment and tell us what you think of the pool quality and functionality.
