I have an inflatable small pool for the kids that i have on a tarp on our sundeck. I have to empty it daily, and wipe it dry before refilling. I find it STILL smells. It is about 8’long by about 5′ wide and is only a couple feet tall so there is no pump. I have six kids in it with sunscreen so I’m guessing thats contributing but how do I get rid of the smell before refilling?


You could add a small amount of chlorine and use the hose to mix it up as circulation is important for that. The problem may be more your source water than the contaminants if metals and or other contaminants are present.
