Last summer 2020 looked a whole lot different than any other summer. No vacays or beaches for me.
Since everyone was staying home last summer (or should have been), I get why adult inflatable pools became so popular last year!
And even with things starting to open up this summer, I still can’t wait to get my cute adult inflatable pool back out!
Last year, this was my only way to vacation.
This year, they’re a fun weekend treat!

Particularly the really cute and aesthetically pleasing Minnidip inflatable pools have been crazy popular and gracing your Instagram feeds.
They are sold out almost everywhere—I’ve looked. You can find them on Amazon right now, but it’s going to cost you a good $40 more.
Fortunately, I’ve found them on eBay and a few other sites for much more reasonable prices!
Last year, I ordered mine back in June from Urban Outfitters (now completely sold out) when I saw that they were back-ordered but would be available later this summer.
It finally arrived in early August, lol. But we have been freaking loving it!
I do wish it had arrived earlier that summer so we could have enjoyed even more time with it.
But with temps warming up and summer just around the corner again, I know we’ll be putting ours to good use.
Last weekend we inflated our pool, made some drinks, played Hawaiian music, and closed our eyes pretending we’re on vacation with those summer waves crashing around us and palm trees swaying.
Honestly, it was pretty heavenly. 10/10, would recommend.
I’m ready for another pina colada.
Btw, Minnidip inflatable pools are not your average kiddie pool. These are like legit adult inflatable pools and so, so cute and aesthetically pleasing.
I opted for the cute pink blushing palms inflatable pool, but they also make other fun prints like watermelon and palm leaves.
Also, how cute is Omied in the pink blushing palms inflatable pool?
He is truly living his best life here.
This pic reminds me how glad I am we got rid of that shed in the back of the backyard, lol. It was not cute.
When we bought our house I was kinda feeling like the one thing missing was a pool.
But getting an adult inflatable pool is kinda the best solution ever because we don’t have to pay for maintenance and we don’t have a pool taking up most of our backyard.
It’s not like I’d be swimming laps if we had a real pool—I’d be floating around with a drink in my hand enjoying a refreshing dip, which I can 100% do in my Minnidip inflatable pool.
Btw, if you’re buying an inflatable pool you will 100% want to get a water filter to go with it so you can easily drain your pool.
More deets on that below, but we made the mistake of not buying one and the first time we drained our inflatable pool we had to get buckets.
The pool is just so heavy with water, there’s no way to move it closer to a drain.
We looked pretty ridiculous going back and forth from the pool to our drain with buckets full of water. So 10/10 recommend a water filter.
Once we learned our lesson and had the water filter going the next time, it was so much better!

Besides the oh-so-cute Minnidip pools, here are a couple other adult inflatable pool options that I’ve found in stock online:
I’ve seen Swim Center inflatable pools around on the internets a lot and they have great reviews.
The minnidip ones are so stinking cute, but these ones would actually fit several adults comfortably. This type of inflatable family pool is probably more ideal if you’re going to have more than two people enjoying the pool.
There are a bunch of different Intex family inflatable swimming pool styles, including:
The Sable inflatable pool also has a really similar look and feel.
These Intex Swimming Pools are probably the least ugly above ground pools that I’ve been able to find. 😂
Your inflatable pool gets very heavy when it’s full of water and you won’t be able to move it, so having a draining system is important! This was prob my favorite purchase of 2020 (besides our house, lol).
And while we’re not having any big get-togethers or parties this year, a summer water party for two in our new inflatable pool is pretty sweet.

It is recommended to change out the water after 24 hours or after you’re done using the cute inflatable pool, especially if you’re not using chlorine.
