Frequently asked questions
Swimming pools
How many litres of water does the swimming pool contain?

We advise you to fill the EXIT swimming pool up to maximum 90%. A 400x200cm swimming holds maximum 7,020 litres and a swimming pool of 540x250cm holds 12,600 litres of water.

Do I need to put chlorine in my swimming pool water?

To keep the swimming pool water clean, therefore also the pool itself, we do advise to add chlorine to the water. Chlorine disinfects the water and keeps it free of bacteria and mould.

Be sure that you don't add the chlorine tablets directly into the water, but that you use a floating chlorine dispenser. The EXIT chlorine dispenser ensures that the chlorine disperses evenly throughout the pool water. Using the adjustable knob, you can determine how many chlorine tables you release in a given period.

Be careful not to add too much or too little chlorine to the water. Using the EXIT test strips, you can measure the chlorine content and the quality of the swimming pool water. Take measures if the value is too high or too low. If you have doubts about your pool water, then contact a swimming pool expert in your area.

Can I put salt in the swimming pool water instead of chlorine?

Yes, instead of chlorine, you can add salt to the pool water. All EXIT Toys swimming pools and covers can withstand both chlorine and salt. When you buy a salt-water system, make sure that the connections have a diameter of 32 mm.

There is a hole in my swimming pool. What can I do about it?

The EXIT swimming pools are tested multiple times and are strong enough to withstand a bump. Nevertheless, a hole may occur in the lining due to a sharp object on the ground. Together with the swimming pool, we also supply you with a liner repair kit. This is an adhesive set consisting of transparent adhesive strips and a piece of liner for larger repairs. The easiest method is to apply the liner when the pool is dry. Is the swimming pool completely full when you discover a hole? No problem! You can also use this adhesive set underwater.

How do I seal small holes in the liner?

1. Use the transparent adhesive strips and cut them to the desired size.
2. Dry and clean well the area around the hole.
3. Seal the hole with the adhesive strips. For additional strength, you can seal the hole from the inner and outer side.
4. Press the adhesive strips well so that they stay firmly glued.

How do I keep the swimming pool clean?

Keeping your swimming pool and its water clean depends on various factors.

All our EXIT swimming pools are delivered with a filter pump. A filter pump filters the dirt out of the water and that way keeps it clean. Furthermore, add a disinfectant agent, such as chlorine, to the pool water. Chlorine disinfects and keeps the water free of bacteria and mould.

To keep your swimming pool clean, it is also important to maintain the good quality of the pool water. You need to have a good balance between the chlorine content, the pH value and the total alkalinity of the water. With the EXIT test strips, you can test the quality of the water and take measures as soon as these values are too high or too low.

To protect your swimming pool against weather influences and outdoor dirt, we recommend using a swimming pool top cover. A swimming pool ground cover prevents damage and the formation of mould on the underside. View our selection of swimming pool covers.

If dirt nevertheless gets into the pool, you can remove it with the EXIT pool maintenance kit. Use the scoop net to collect the dirt from the water and use the vacuum head to give the swimming pool bottom an intensive cleaning round.

Can the EXIT swimming pool remain outside the entire year?

No, the swimming pool is a product for the spring and summer. We advise you to store the swimming pool in the autumn so that you will be able to enjoy it for many years to come.

What measures should I take with the dome during strong gusts of wind or a storm?

Make sure that the dome is always affixed using the included elastic bands (whether it’s open or closed). In principle, the dome can take some wind, but if there are strong wind gusts, the dome must be protected. We advise the following:

In quiet weather (up to wind force 2) you can keep the dome either open or closed and even partially unfolded. In wind force from 2 to 6, we advise you keep the dome completely open or completely closed. In case of wind force greater than 6, we advise to have the dome completely open and to anchor it. In case of doubt, unfold the dome so that the pool is hit by as little wind as possible.

Is there enough room under the EXIT swimming pool dome?

There is plenty of room to move about under the dome. Due to its shape, the dome’s highest point is in the middle. In the EXIT 400x200cm swimming pool, this is 181 cm high. In swimming pools of 540x250cm, the dome is 220 cm high in the middle. So you can enjoy throwing a ball and you can even stand upright under it in many instances!

If you want to swim while the dome is closed, then we advise you to remove the sides of the dome in order to get enough fresh air. Furthermore, you can always roll up the windows. You roll them up and fasten them with Velcro - very fast and simple!

See the video of the EXIT swimming pool with dome in order to get an idea of the height of the dome.

Can I get sunburnt under the EXIT swimming pool dome?

The EXIT swimming pool dome provides 60% protection against UV rays, so you will not get burnt very quickly when you swim. That makes swimming safer with an EXIT swimming pool dome; but you should nevertheless use sun protection cream!
