Mum reveals genius way to fill paddling pool via kitchen sink without going back and forth – with just a plastic bottle

THE TEMPERATURES are set to heat up in the UK towards the end of this week – and with kids still home from school in lockdown it's the ideal time to get out the paddling pool.

Even better, one mum has revealed a genius way to fill it up fast using just an old plastic bottle.

In a post on Facebook group 'Extreme Couponing and Bargains Group UK', the woman called Abby explained how she had found a free hack for transporting water from her kitchen to her garden without going back and forth.

The clever parent shared pictures showing how she had attached an old plastic bottle to her tap in order divert the flow down a hose and into the pool in her backyard.

She wrote: "How I got my kids paddling pool warm today, yes it took a while but way better than 100000000000000000000 bucket trips."

While it is possible to purchase hose tap connecters online, the woman noted that this free option did the job immediately.

The mum explained: "I know you can buy adapters, but when you haven't had time to order some this is the next best thing.”

Her post went down well with fellow group members who left more than 6,900 'likes'.

One person wrote: "You're an actual genius."

Another commented: "Omg! You genius! I am gonna give it a go."

A third shared: "Great idea."

And a fourth added: "Love it!!"
