I bought a little inflatable pool for the kids last week before we left town for a few days. I blew it up before we left, but we did not use it. It was in the house while we were gone. When we got home I had to blow it back up before they could use it ok, it had been sitting for a few days no big deal. Well it is leaking water out of it too. I just bought this thing! Should I bring it back? I did not pay much for it, so I am not sure if I should bring it back or just forget it and get them a new one.

Once I bought some trim for a blanket. It didn't cost more than two dollars. And when I went to return it, the whole process was such a huge and embarrassing hassle, I vowed never to ask for a refund again. Especially if the amount of money was trivial. If you really want the money back then return it. Otherwise you could try to patch the hole. This is the technique that I used to patch my blow up air mattress. Deflate the pool half way. Next, fold the inflatable pool in half gently and then listen for the whistle of air. You might be able to run your hand over the pool to feel where air is coming out. Once you locate the spot, you can patch with a square of vinyl and crazy glue or super glue. Make sure the area is completely dry or the glue won't adhere! Best of luck.

I have not even tired to find the hole yet. It is only a $6 blow up pool, so I will probably just deal with the loss.

That's cool, too! I had no idea it was only $6.00. That's not too much to lose. Thanks for best response!

If you got it from a big store I would take it back. Just because you blew it up before you left doesnt mean its your fault. As much as gas and everything else is getting get your moneys worth.

I got it at Wal-mart. I don't think it should be a problem returning it, but I just hate the attitude you get sometimes from customer service when returning things.
