The Best Inflatable Pools You Can Buy On Amazon

Don't have an in-ground infinity pool? You can still cool off (and get your yard back come November) with an inflatable or a frame supported pool. The nice thing about inflatables is they've gotten much more durable over the years (these are not the leak-springing inflatable pools of our youths). Plus, these are all available on Amazon, meaning you won't have to wait weeks on end for delivery, and some even ship for free. So go ahead and cool off—just don't let the whole neighborhood know what's in that Amazon box on your doorstep.

Adult Lounger

This inflatable pool isn't just for kids but also parents looking to cool off. You'll notice that this is not your standard inflatable pool — there are 4 built-in lounge chairs, which makes this option perfect for kicking back with pals in 203 gallons of chilly water. Pro tip: use a pump to inflate because the seat cushions, neck rests, and rings need to be blown up individually.

Family-friendly

This 7 footer is spacious enough for multiple kiddos to splash and play without getting in each others' way. (It holds 400 gallons of water, and while we don't know the gallons-to-children conversion, let's just say it's more than two.) We love that OlarHike uses a high standard PVC that's actually food grade, so it's perfect for sensitive skin.

Double Duty

Babies and toddlers will love splashing in this colorful fish's mouth. And when it doesn't have water in it, you can use this pool as a shaded play space, ball pit, or party attraction. So many uses for one fish.

Best Waterslide

Best Waterslide

This has a climbing wall, crocodile water slide (which is over 7 feet tall), water gun, and mini pool. And it comes with everything you need for a quick set up: an air blower, repair patches, lawn stakes, and a portable carrying bag. It can fit up to 4 children (it has a 200 pound weight limit), which means all the neighborhood kids who will be over at your house will have to take turns. 

05

Toddler Winner

Toddler Winner

Great for 2-and-3-year-olds, this one has it all. A slide, an arched water spray, and ball and ring toss games will keep kiddos entertained for hours. At just under 11 feet at its widest, this pool holds 74 gallons of water. It includes a drain plug and repair patch, but not an air pump, so make sure you have one on hand because no way you're blowing this up on the fly.

Inflatable pools can only be so big and they aren't known for being particularly deep. But you don't have to go full frame to experience the joys of a frame-supported pool. Intex has a wide variety of sizes (we love the 16 foot x 8 foot rectangular pool because it's particularly manageable but feels like a real pool) and is not terribly difficult to set up.

Kids go nuts for these adorable 5 foot inflatable Big Mouth pools (and parents love them because they provide the perfect photo opp). Choose from a rainbow, frosted donut, cheeseburger, or watermelon pool. in the cooler months you can move the pool inside and fill it with balls.

Easy Set Up

Easy Set Up

This classic round Intex pool is a great choice for small backyards. It's big enough for kids to swim around in (it's billed as a four-person pool), but manageable (and affordable) for parents. As its name implies, it's simple to assemble and comes with a filter pump that aids water circulation. 

The fun doesn't have to stop when the cooler nights hit! Check out some inflatable hot tubs that are easy on the eyes and even easier to store.
