The summer heat is looming upon us as we enter some of the hottest days of the year. The Midwest United States has seen temperatures soar into the mid-90s already, and we have not even entered into July and August. It is always such a nice feeling to cool off in the pool while the sun is at its hottest temperature of the day.

In some cases, however, many of you are paying for memberships to the local pool on a monthly or yearly basis, or paying for “guest” visits. What you may not be aware of is the availability of pools for purchase to put in your backyard. The pools may not be constructed with cement and kept clean by the pool staff, but they are big enough and very inexpensive (less than thirty dollars).

Where To Get An Affordable Pool

Both Wal-Mart and Target have inflatable plastic pools for use at your home, wherever you want it. One size is a ten-foot by six-foot inflatable pool that is about two to three feet deep. This size is nice for anyone – parents, kids and friends – to relax in and cool off from the heat. Other pools vary from round, larger inflatable pools to metal-frame aboveground pools that are more expensive, but still less expensive than paying for any kind of membership.

The idea behind this is to save money on the constant payments for memberships to the local pool. Taking care of your own pool is not a hassle and with chlorine, the pool can be kept sanitized and cool for everyday use. It only makes sense to enjoy the warm evenings after work and the hot weekends by spending time in your own pool, without leaving your home and saving money doing so! Check out these deals through Wal-Mart or Target and get started with a new addition to your list of hobbies.
