    Pool Items from Amazon Prime

    After MUCH thought, I finally took the plunge to sign up for an Amazon Prime account. It will be interesting to see how much I order in the next year just to feel like I got my money's worth! I miss the days of $25 to qualify for free shipping--it has now gone to $49!!

    What types of items have you bought for your pool from Amazon? Looking for any suggestions--fun stuff like floats, games, or outdoor decor, to necessities like CYA. I know some things wouldn't be cost effective or cheaper for them to ship (like bleach) so that will factor into the decision. I buy baking soda at Sam's where it is much cheaper--and on my instant savings coupons this week!

    Thanks!
    ~ 18.5' x 36.5' inground Grecian pool with vinyl liner
    ~ approximately 23,000 gallons
    ~ AquaRite Salt Water Generator cell size t-9
    ~ 1.5 HP Hayward Pump and Hayward Sand Filter
    ~ TF-100 test kit

    Don't forget about the video and music that is included. I listen to Prime music by the pool all the time.

    I hope my internet speed will be good enough to handle the video--I just signed up for Prime today and haven't tried yet. I think I'll be ok with the music...I sometimes listen to Spotify. I wish they'd offer different "packages" of Amazon prime. I've spent hours upon hours over many years literally begging companies to expand their internet services. I finally was able to get DSL last year through AT&T...and it isn't really high speed, especially at peak times. The only other options are satellite internet and Verizon cell towers. There are so many rural areas with no access to high speed internet...and then I read articles about the US wanting to help Cuba get internet access. Rant over...

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone! Keep them coming!

    I've had prime for years, but honestly most of the pool stuff I've bought isn't Prime eligible, which always drives me crazy.

    Pool Items from Amazon Prime

    I watch Amazon prime shows all the time and I live rural with horrible DSL service...my cell service is faster. I do get some buffering, but I have been on OTA rabbit ears for 15 years and can deal with a little lag

    And believe me, you will find all kinds of stuff to buy, just make sure you comp shop a little. FYI, the pool equipment I have researched for myself and others is normally priced better at online pool warehouses

    Free form 17X30. 14,500 Gal. Pentair sand filter and 1.5 hp pump. Aqua-Rite SWCG. TF-100 Test Kit w/Speed Stir

    Clorox has a series of pool chemicals that seem to work well for me. Price is pretty good, especially considered they are shipped to your door in 2 days - no charge if prime.

    I'm beginning to think I could easily develop an addiction! The pool float I ordered came today. I was most impressed by the delivery I received on Sunday! Found out that Amazon has an agreement with the USPS to deliver prime packages on Sunday's. Thanks for all the suggestions!

    Re: Pool Items from Amazon Prime

    I buy almost everything from Amazon. Every time I go to the pool store to get something quick, they never have it.

    It's too much to list here, but you can pretty much find anything you need. Just today I received two zodiac tail pieces to fix the liquidator holes I drilled.

    Also, if your kids go to school. You can use Amazon smile and they will donate a portion to the school you select. Not sure off the top of my head if that works for all charities or not.

    Is the inflatable goal better than the one you put outside on the edge?
