Product overview

This large family sized 5m x 3.6m Bestway Hydrium Pool Set from Bestway’s renowned range of superior strength, steel-walled above ground pools offers the perfect solution to a sturdy and easy garden pool.

So Easy

A solid construction means Bestway Hydrium pools are the perfect semi-permanent above ground alternative in cost, quality, installation and maintenance to an in ground outdoor pool.

So much fun!

What better way to cool off on a hot summer’s day than to splash into your own outdoor pool. This large pool is perfect for all the family, the kids and all their friends. It makes a stylish focal point for parties and gatherings or the perfect place for a refreshing and relaxing dip.


Bestway Hydrium outdoor pools are made of tough, rust-resistant reinforced 0.4mm steel sidewalls for the highest durability possible without the excess weight, and supported by the chunky, extra wide 16cm steel top borders. A unique ridge design along the outside of the pool provides added support.

Inside the pool, the premium 0.4mm PVC liner comes with a UV coating top help prevent the drying out and cracking that can occur with lesser liners if exposed to direct sunlight for too long.

To help maintain the pool water a surface skimmer comes as part of the package, and is neatly integrated into the wall of the pool. Also included is a Sand Filter pump to help eradicate unwanted bacteria and other hidden nasties form the water.

To allow easier access to the water a 1.22m pool ladder is also supplied as part of the package.

To ensure these standards of safety, our Bestway Above Ground Pools have a safety outlet valve system to prevent any entrapment when the pool is in use and we have also completed a tear resistance test of our Tri-Tech™ liner to ensure maximum quality. Large pools also come with a ladder as standard for easy and safe access in and out of the pool.

This is an above ground pool and as a result is not suitable for building into the ground. Adult supervision is recommended at all times when children are using pools.

Great looking pool

We have recently purchased this pool and are very happy with the finished product. Once you watched the You Tube video with instructions it was very easy to put together. Would happily recommend to others interested in purchasing this pool.

Perfect size for the kids

about 1 year ago


We purchased the Bestway pool and placed it in a hole and decked around to create the inground look at a budget price. Our boys who are 5 and 3 have had a ball over the past two weeks of the project being finished. The instructions aren't very clear but if you watch the video provided it's no trouble to assemble. Had a little trouble finding the sand for the filter so it would be great if this was included in the package.

Best Bestway Pool we have owned!

Not easy to put it up, we were warned, but it is so worth it. A little bit of hard work and a long, cool Summer are your reward. Plus the fun the kids have is immeasurable.

Love our pool but ......

over 2 years ago


It was a little harder than we thought to put up. No instructions for the ladder - which has left rust marks on our pavers. And one cap wasn't formed completely - no quality control at manufactures end?? But Trade tested are following up replacement. But overall very happy with our purchase.

Construction is tedious and some components are heavy.

Now that the assembly is over, it's all good. The more help the better. The assembly instructions could do with some words to assist.

A great buy. Challenging to erect but once it's up - lots of fun and well worth the effort. Good service from Trade Tested.
