Is Intex Hi Output Air Pump Double Quick I of High Output and High Value?
So you have bought an inflation pool/ chair for your little one! It is fun, but you have to be really careful, because you don’t want anything around to cause any harm to the new toy. But before that, there is one thing I would like to say.
While I love these toys, I hate the whole setting up part. Don’t ask me how I set up her 3 ring pool! Kids can get impatient when there is a new toy and by the time I was done, I was so exhausted! I made the mistake of inflating it with a balloon pump. Unless you want an alternative to building your biceps without hitting a gym – DO NOT TRY IT!
I wanted to buy a pump soon after, but I got lazy and forgot all about it. That’s when I picked up an inflatable chair for the kiddo and decided to buy it.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t get it immediately. So after a long wait I got the pump, just in time, as my LO realized that her chair had gone missing!
So did this pump help? Find out in this review.

My experience with the Intex Hi Output Air Pump Double Quick I
I have been using this pump for 3 months now. I wanted a pump that was efficient, cost effective and less of a work-out session (if you know what I mean).
What I really loved about the pump is the fact that it is light-weight! It is also small enough to accompany you for a vacation!
The extra nozzles are attached to hose, so you don’t have to worry about misplacing it.
When you start pumping, keep an eye on the nozzle as it can slip out. It happened with me a few times. Just make sure that everything is in place before you stand inflating, to avoid this.
Just make sure that you store it properly, the plastic hose is prone to breakage due to folding if you keep it that way for long.
Will I recommend Intex Hi Output Air Pump Double Quick I?
If it is on sale, sure. Or else, do look for other variants that aren’t so costly.
Where to buy?
If you are looking to buy one for yourself, then you can try Amazon or any of the online stores.
MR’s suggestion to the brand
The hose tends to get run-down pretty easily, so you can think of a better material or even a replacement hose would be great idea.
I give it a 3/5.
