Backyard Ocean Pool Review

My contributor, Terra was sent Backyard Ocean Review (8×26 float to fill ring pool) to review. Opinions are her own.



Set up was very easy! You fill up the ring with air, spread the pool out and fill with water. It did take a while for the pool to fill up (about two hours). Make sure it is on a level surface as well! I set it up on a bit of a slant, and we couldn’t fill it entirely. 



The kids still had fun though! We did use an air pump to fill the ring. I imagine it would be quite tiring, and time consuming to do by mouth. From start to fill up, it took a couple of hours. There is no pump on this one to keep the water fresh, so you will have to drain it and clean in it at some point. I was very impressed with how durable and sturdy the material is. If taken care of, this pool could definitely be used year after year! Our little dog got in, and his nails didn’t even pop the ring. Even though it is a small pool my kids had a blast. A few of the neighbor kids came over and, between the five of them, they all took turns running and jumping in. 



It came with two nice sized beach balls as well! The value of this pool is great. It’s a very affordable way to entertain your kids in the backyard when they need to cool off in the summer. Overall, I would recommend this product to others.
