First it was a Bunnings pool making waves online, but if a few hundred dollars was still over your budget, Kmart has a bargain $59 version, which is getting rave reviews online.

The three-metre pool has been dubbed the “best buy” for a hot summer’s day, with shoppers sharing their love for the item on the website’s review section, as well as on social media.

“Definitely need one to beat the heat,” one woman wrote in a popular Kmart Facebook group, asking other people for their thoughts on the product.

“For $60. Just do it,” one person commented. “On a hot day it'll be the best $60 ever spent. Had two before. So worth it. Even if it only lasts one season.”

And another said: “A friend has one and it’s great.”

The Bestway Fast 10-foot portable pool includes one filter pump and repair patch, can hold up to 3,900 litres of water — and with some help installation can take just 10 minutes.

Most people that had the pool already recommended regular chlorine use and making sure the ground beneath was level so the water doesn’t spill over the edge on one side.

But overall, the pool has already received plenty of 5-star reviews on the Kmart website.

“Pretty good for the price. Wish the pump was a bit more powerful … but you get what you pay for,” one shopper wrote.


It comes after Bunnings shoppers went nuts earlier this month over a very similar 'amazing' summer bargain buy.

Taking to a Facebook group, one social media user shared her find, writing, “Just wanted to appreciate [this] Bunnings pool for under $500 it is so decent and great size... this is fenced.”

The 4m pool costs a little more than Kmart’s version but also received plenty of love online.

"Looks awesome!!!" one person said. "Congratulations Bunnings yes perfect size."

"OMG. Even if it lasts one summer, it’s worth it," another person commented.

Of course, it’s important to remember if you want a pool in your backyard every state has different regulations, so potential purchasers will need to check the relevant laws for their specific location.

In NSW, for example, pools that are capable of being filled to a depth greater than 300mm of water will require a child-proof fence.
