THE UK’S sweltering summer is set to continue with more warm weather on the way.
And if you’re in need of a cool down, now is the time to splash out.
There’s still time to buy a pool if you need to cool down for the heatwave
Some retailers have launched big summer sales and have slashed prices on swimming pools by up to 50%.
But before you hit the buy button, be sure to check out delivery costs or click and collect charges.
Always shop around for the best deal in case you can get the same item cheaper elsewhere – and check out cashback and voucher code websites for discounts.
Factor in the cost of filling up your pool too, and check whether it requires any extra maintenance that might add to the price.
If you’re on a water meter, consider how much filling up a giant-sized pool could add to your bill.
