I'm getting "You can't redeem that offer with that payment type" when applying BUNNY30. Do you have a use a certain payment type?

Looked at this as our kiddie pool just died this past weekend =- but reviews are very hit/miss - lots of complaints about seams ripping (then a ton of reviews saying they beat the shit out of it and it survived). Also apparently you need to keep the water on - there is no recirc pump (it just continually spills all over).

I bought this end of last summer, just used it again this beautiful weekend. Grand kids have an absolute blast. Mine is holding up so far. It will be worth it, if it lasts a season or two. Also, remember, Kohls have lifetime return policy, so if it does fall apart, I am putting it back in the box and returning it to the store. I might buy a second one to have as a spare, so when I return the other one I still have one bought at a sale price.

The best advice I read is someone said, not to fully tighten down the exhaust. Put a straw in it or something, I just tie it loose. That way the air has some place to escape to other than through all of the seams, which can tend to rip it apart quicker. So far so good. I wasn't sure from the reviews if it would even survive over the winter.

I am trying to figure out how to hook up a pump I bought. Not sure it will work. Anyway, I find it is less cold for the kids if I can set it up earlier, and fill it half way so at least the water in the pool part is warmer. On a hot day, not as much of a problem for the cold water coming through the sprayer if the water in the pool at least is warmer. Though, of course you and your close neighbors hear the blower going for most of the day that way, which can be annoying..

Regarding overflow. I have never got to the point of having it overflow. I turn it down or even off if the kids stop sliding down it for a bit. Also, just get a bucket and dump the water on the kids as they try to run away from you out of the pool. They will do the same and no problem having too much water in the pool.

You could probably just get a submersible pump, plug it in and go. The only issue I see is that these pumps are typically rated for very high GPM/PSI. HF sells a 1/6 HP model (smallest I can find at B&M) that's rated 1200 GPM and 10PSI. There I am worried that the PSI might be too low (chances are your tap water is 40+ PSI), but it would be worth a shot.

I am on well water and don't like the pump continually running for something as stupid as a kids toy; even though it would cost around $50 I'd try buying a small submersible pump to use as recirc.

I am still on the fence here.... how heavy is this Mofo to put away? Lots of reviews basically say it's such a PITA/heavy that people leave it out for the entire summer or at least long periods of time.

I was thinking the submersible wouldn't have enough pressure, lol, so bought a 1/2 HP for $30 on ebay, but it is not submersible, so I need a hose out of the pool. The problem is with this one, how to get it started? Since it needs to have water running down hill, so ya, I should have bought a submersible one. I am thinking maybe hose from faucet to another hose with a quick connect to the pump, then put the quick connect underwater and disconnect it, will then have water.

Last summer I just dragged it to my garage. Then I read someone's suggestion to get a garbage can. Just stuff it in the garbage can and roll it away. No problem, that is what I did for the winter, and today. That is quick and easy. Other then with this method, I take the plastic tubing off, because I think I would bend that if I tried to stuff it in a garbage can. That probably won't be that big of a deal. There are a ton of velcro ties to put this tubing through, but I probably don't need that many of them on other than for appearance to keep the tube right next to the side.
