From a retailer's point of view this makes sense: kiddie pools aren't profitable enough to support real customer service. Unfortunately, this lack of service has lead to the very assumption that small swimming pools don't need regular pool care.
The purpose of this guide is to help parents to keep their kiddie pools safe, easily and inexpensively. Please note that the guidelines below represent ONE good way to do this; NOT the only way.
It's my hope that these pages will help kiddie swimming pool owners. Kiddie pools can be great back yard entertainment -- inexpensive, easy, and fun. I've tried to include accurate and appropriate information that will help you care for your pool simply and inexpensively.
Home kiddie pools -- swimming pools less than three feet in depth with missing or minimal filtration -- are the real 'orphans' of the swimming pool world.
