Cheapest paddling pools in time for the heatwave from stores like Home Bargains and Argos – and prices start at £3.50

WITH a heatwave on the way you may be looking for a cheap chance for you and the little ones to cool off.

What better way than to splash out on a paddling pool – you could soak your feet or let the kids have a wade in the water once the sun starts beating down.

And you don't have to fork out much to get your hands on one, as prices from big retailers like Home Bargains and Argos start at just £3.50.

It's expected to warm up over the bank holiday break, and the hottest day of the year so far could come in tow.

Brits could be baking in 22 degree temperatures tomorrow, so you'll want to get your skates on and get down to the shops to stock up.

But don't be too quick to splash out – have a shop around first as you might find an even better offer than the bargains we've spotted.

Google's price comparison tool, Google Shopping, is free and easy to use to check you've bagged the best deal.

But remember that you'll only make a saving if you were planning on making a purchase anyway – you might go over budget if you splash out just because of the cheap prices.

And if you're shopping online, keep in mind that each store will have its own fees for delivery so you might have to factor this in when you come to hit the buy button.

Now, if you're starting to get hot under the collar just thinking about it, take a quick look at our roundup:

Paddling PoolsCredit: Home Bargains

Home Bargains stocks one of the cheapest paddling pools to get your feet wet in right now.

Its £3.50 inflatable stands at around 10 inches tall and it's about 3.5ft wide.

It's easy to store, and can be quickly inflated and deflated, to make sure you're always ready to make the most of a beautiful day, at a moments notice.

The design is fun and quirky too, particularly if your little ones love a bit of marine life.

Argos Chad Valley Ocean Fill 'N' Fun paddling pool

  • Was: £12 Now: £6 Save: £6 (50%) – buy now

Argos' cheap as chips paddling pool will hold 219 litres of water.

It's not inflatable like some of the other entries we have on this list, but that just means all you have to do is fill it up and start enjoying a soak right away.

The store says that will only take you five minutes anyway so you'll be splashing about in no time.

For only £6 it's roughly 4ft wide, and it comes complete with its own repair kit so the fun doesn't have to stop.

The Entertainer Bestway inflatable play pool

  • Price: £6 – buy now

The Entertainer is selling its own paddling pool for £6 too.

This one is just over 3ft wide, though it does come in a variety of colours.

You can pick from blue, green or pink if you were to head in store – but buy the product online and you may just get the luck of the draw.

B&M Bestway Summer Set Pool

  • Price: £8 – buy now

As you're hunting for bargains at B&M, you might want to splash out on an £8 paddling pool while you've got the trolley in tow.

The paddling pool's three separately coloured air chambers can be quickly and easily inflated using an air pump – but you might have to fork out a little more at the store to get one as that's not included.

You'll have around 3.4ft of space to paddle about in.

But you can't shop online at B&M so it's going to take a trip to the shops before you can get set up in the garden.

Smyths Intex Sunset Glow three ring paddling pool

  • Price: £8 – buy now

Smyths is selling a very similar looking pool to B&M's for the same £8 price.

It's a bit bigger though as it's around 3.7ft wide.

The only problem is that the Smyths paddling pool is currently all sold out.

Not to worry though, as the store is launching a full restock next month, and you can expect to see the pools back lining the shelves from May 26 to June 1.

Wilko rectangular family pool

  • Price: £16 – buy now

If you want a bit more room for the whole family to have a splash about, you're going to have to fork out a little more.

Wilko is selling a rectangular paddling pool for £16, making it double the price of other retailers.

You can fit 194 litres of water in the inflatable, and it's had plenty of five star reviews online already.

One shoppers said it was "an excellent size," as another said "great value for money."

George at Asda rectangular classic pool

  • Price: £20 – buy now
