How does the pool hire work?

  • Place your order, then choose the delivery date (this should be around 37 weeks)
  • Your rental period will be for 5 weeks.
  • There will be NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE for a late birth, provided we are contacted.
  • After your birth, we require the return of returnable items as soon as possible.
  • The pool and pumps must be clean and dry, before packing.
  • Please keep boxes and packaging, for returning.
  • You will contact us by email and we will book a courier to pick-up at your convenience.
  • Normally, you will be given an approximate pick-up time.
  • Charges will apply if there is nobody available when the courier arrives.
  • Providing the pool and pumps are returned in clean and workable condition and no parts are missing, the deposit will be fully refunded

PLEASE NOTE:  If you want to do a trial run with your pool, before birth, you must use a liner. Therefore, it will be necessary to purchase an extra liner in order to do this.

UPON RECEIVING THE EQUIPMENT:

  • Please make sure one of the connectors fits your tap
  • Check that the thermometer is working
  • Check that both pumps are working and have the necessary fittings

If you have a problem with any of the above, please contact us immediately.

Refunds for unused equipment

  • We understand that due to unforeseen circumstances you may not be able to use the equipment at all. If you are unable to use the pool and kit after receipt, you are eligible for a partial refund.
  • The refund will be on condition that neither the pool, liner, hose or tarp have been opened.
  • The refund will be the full amount paid, less the cost of the shipping out and return.
  • There will also be a £25.00 charge for handling and re-stocking.
