When the going gets hot, the hot escape into the garden and into a pool of lovely cool water.
And now you can do just that for up to 30% off as Amazon has slashed prices on a selection of inflatable pools, frame pools and even a hot tub.
It's certainly a popular time to be buying a paddling pool, whether it's for people or pets. Amazon tells us that sales of individual paddling pools including the Bestway Ocean Life kids Paddling Pool, the Bestway Family Pool and the Intex Dinoland Play Centre have risen by over 200% week-on-week, and it’s not just humans that are feeling the heat but pets too – sales of pet paddling pools such as the Foldable Pool For Pets have risen by over 300% week-on-week.
Whether you want something for the kids to splash around in or something a little deeper and larger that you can recline in with your favourite summer cocktail, you're sure to find something to suit you – and your wallet – in the selection below.
All are self-assembly. Some are of the traditional inflatable style and others, which are larger and deeper, rely on a metal frame to hold a pool fabric in shape. The thing they have in common is that they are really quick to set up so you can be chilling in the water in no time.

Lay-Z-Spa Saint Tropez Hot Tub | RRP: £529.99 | Deal Price: £399.99 | You Save: £130.00 (25%)

Lay-Z-Spa spas require no professional installation or tools to set up (that takes less than 10 minutes) and inflate with the included pump. There's a rapid heating system with a timer, which heats up to 40C, so you can set it to be ready for when you get home to enjoy the hot tub's 87 AirJet massage system. 80% of customers rate this 4 stars or above.
