Kiddie Pool Life Hack

Jeff insisted that the kids get a much bigger kiddie pool this year. I didn't want something that was a permanent feature. We came to a compromise with the largest inflatable pool we could find. It's a whopping 120.0 " L x 72.0 " W x 22.0 " . That is a pretty good size for a kiddie pool.

The one thing we hadn't thought about was filling it. If we use straight hose water it is FREEZING and because of the volume it NEVER warms up during the day. I came up with an idea that allowed us to fill up the pool with our warm "house" water. It has been a lifesaver. The pool is actually usable and it's ready for the kids as soon as it's full. PERFECT!

First remove the head from your kitchen faucet (it easily unscrews)

Next bring in one end of your outdoor hose into your kitchen window

Use Duct Tape to secure the hose to your window sill

Line up your faucet line to the hose and secure it with Duct Tape.
Then turn your faucet on Hot and watch the warm water flow right out your hose and fill up your kiddie pool!!
