After revolutionizing backyard water fun last summer with the launch of the first and only water slide with a built-in inflatable speed ramp, Bestway, Inc. returns in 2016 with an even more exciting line-up of H2OGO! outdoor water toys, with one of them being the H2OGO! Color Wave Pool.
The summer heat has been a scorcher, so it's always welcoming when we can cool off in the water. What makes the H2OGO! Color Wave Pool different than other inflatable pools is that it has built-in LED lights that illuminate the walls of the pool in an array of five different neon colors.
For the lights to work, 4 "C" batteries and a small Phillips screwdriver are required. There's a square section on the pool to insert the batteries and to turn the lights on. Although you can see the lights during the day, they are not as well-lit as they are during the night.
It took me close to 20 minutes to inflate the pool with a manual pump. There are two sections that require inflation. A built-in drain valve is included for easy tear down when pool is not in use.
This pool has definitely gotten its fair share of use. I had a group of friends and family over not too long ago and all the little ones wanted in. The pool safely fit seven small children. They weren't able to swim, but they were able to kick and splash and relax in the water with ample room. I was impressed with its stability and how well it stood under pressure with all the kids playing around in it at once. As for adults, I'd say it safely fits two to three at a time.
