This viral inflatable pool is always sold out — but it's back (and on sale!)

In case you didn't notice (congrats on your AC, by the way), it's hot outside. Like, very hot. With these record heat waves all over the country right now, we wouldn't blame you for pining for your own backyard pool. Not all of us are in a position to break ground for an Olympic-sized installation, which is why we are fans of inflatable pools. No, we aren't talking about kiddie-sided wading pools. We're talking about adult-sized blow-ups. Our pick? The mega-viral Member's Mark inflatable pool. This social media darling is constantly selling out, but now it's finally back in stock (and on sale!) at Amazon. A major thank you to the pool gods.

Extra-large and in charge, this pool will fit your entire family.

Why is this a good deal? 💰

Look, have you ever seen an inflatable pool of this size for less than $100 — much less on sale for $55? To break it down, this pool, which provides endless summer fun, costs less than four movie tickets these days. It also sells out all the time, so the fact that it's even in stock is major.

Why do I need this? 🤔

First off, we strongly believe that inflatable pools aren't just for kids. Life is generally hard work, so, yes, you deserve to chillax outside in your very own backyard oasis. It's also (obviously) an excellent way to have fun with the entire family. Clocking in at around 10 feet long, 9 feet wide and 18 inches high, there's plenty of room to lay out and play with your loved ones. Oh, and we're really obsessed with the two air-cushioned backrests and comfortable seats.

Beyond the summer fun, the pool also comes with a 2-in-1 valve for easy inflation and deflation. It empties easily, too: just use the convenient drain plug to let out the pool water when it's time to freshen things up or when you need to pack things away.

What reviewers say 💬

Unsurprisingly, Amazon customers are fans of the inflatable pool. It's racked up an impressive 3,800+ perfect five-star reviews — and the grown-ups love it.

Pros 👍

"This pool is amazing," exclaimed one five-star reviewer. "For the past few summers I had one of those small hard plastic pools but I couldn't actually lay in it, just sit or put my chair half in and keep my legs cool. [This pool] inflated quick and easily (you will need an air bed pump) now both my husband and I can relax and cool off all summer."

Remember how we said it's not just for kiddos? Well, this chill Amazon customer agrees. "I'm 43 and I’ve purchased this for myself and I love it," they wrote. "Great to relax in. You can easily fall asleep by resting your head on one of these seats. I can be there for as long as [I want]."

"Great little pool," shared this third shopper. "It's a nice size for adults to lounge or for little kids to play safely. I actually love the little seats. If you don't fill the pool too much, you could lay flat with the little seat as a pillow for ultimate relaxation mode in your backyard staring at the sky. Totally love this little pool."

Meanwhile, a final reviewer wrote that it's the "perfect" size: "My grandbabies love this pool. I use it myself. Very happy with the purchase. Easy to set up and clean."

Cons 👎

Even though customers generally enjoy the size and value of the pool, some warn that it's ... larger than you may expect. "Nice, but almost too big," noted one four-star reviewer. "Two people to carry it and it's hard to dump the water." Another shopper who said the pool is "definitely worth it" also warned that "you must give yourself space when inflating" and "you must understand you purchased this because of the size."

Remember: More pool means more summer fun, but just make sure you know what you're getting yourself into.

Another small issue shoppers have is that the pool doesn't come with an electric air pump — and you need it. "I used an automatic electric pump (I used one that’s for an air mattress)," explained this five-star reviewer. "You have to use one to inflate it. But it’s a quick blow-up and a quick deflate when you let the air out." And when it comes to actually using the pump, this last shopper says to "make sure you [inflate] it to max firmness or it will drain."

Imagine sitting here with your favorite cocktail and the latest Sarah J. Maas book. Ah, bliss.

Before diving in (don't actually dive, the pool is very shallow), you need a good electric air pump to inflate up your new pool. If you don't already have one, Amazon shoppers are major fans of the No. 1 bestselling Agptek Electric Air Pump — and it's also on sale for just $16.

With both a car and home power adapter, this electric air pump can be used for everything from air mattresses to inflatable kayaks, floats and, of course, inflatable pools.

"This air pump is the greatest," shared one of 23,500+ perfect five-star reviewers. "It’s small and compact and inflated a large pool with such ease. It did not overheat and was quick and easy to use. I highly recommend it for anything that needs to be inflated."

"Loved the ease of use and how quickly it worked to fill my inner tubes that I was using a manual pump for," wrote another reviewer. "Only complaint is I’d have appreciated an included bag for storage."
