folding swimming pool / skill training

folding swimming pool

Drowning is one of the top five causes of death for children aged 1-14. Many low-income countries do not have the ability to operate expensive swimming pools, so children do not have a safe place to learn to swim. This children’s folding swimming pool can accommodate 3 to 4 children to practice basic training such as breath holding, exhalation, floating, etc. When not in use, it can be folded into a small bag for easy handling and storage. Finally, this children's folding swimming pool is made of polypropylene, which is inexpensive, and can be folded many times and is not easily damaged.
