INTEX: Starting Summer Present

Living in Louisiana our Summer comes early and stays late. We have HOT weather 75% of the year. Which means we stay in the water longer than most other areas. Everyone we know has a pool, so we were thrilled to get our very own! Our son, Bentley, was the most excited. He couldn’t wait to have a pool of his own. 

Pools are the perfect little End of School Year or Starting Summer Present! Treat your child to the perfect summer, I promise you will love it and use it just as much as they will! 

First, we choose INTEX because it was a brand that has been around for years and years that was well known and well loved. Choosing INTEX was not the hard choice, it was choosing which pool we wanted from INTEX. They had SO many to choose from! Big, Small, Metal, you name it! 

We ended up going with the 18ft by 48in. This size was perfect for my son as well as us adults. It wasn’t too big for him, and it wasn’t too small for us! This size was honestly a win win for everyone! 

Set up was fairly easy, we were actually surprise at how flat we got the bottom. Our trick was, we used a tarp then sand on top of the tarp before attempting laying out the pool itself. Once all that was complete, the filling of water took a while, but our son enjoyed playing in the pool as it filled up. Since this is a bigger pool, it did take a few hours to fill up. 

Once the pool was set up there was no stopping us! We seriously used this pool more than I ever thought we would. Just about daily, for at least a few minutes. Bentley really enjoyed cooling off on our HOT 100 Degree Days.
