Q: Do you make Pick-up Pools for mid-size trucks, like Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier?
A: We do not make a pool specifically for mid-size trucks. However, our short bed pool will work on mid-size models with a loose/baggy fit.
Q: Can my truck handle a bed full of water?
A: It depends on the condition and the make/model/year of your truck. Water is extremely heavy. 1 cubic foot of water weighs approx 62.4 lbs. Therefore, we highly recommend that you consult your manufacturer's maximum payload specifications for your truck prior to filling the back with water. As a rule, we do not recommend filling the bed past the approximate halfway point. This will keep the payload within tolerance of most 1500 series trucks and its plenty of water for a good time. You also need to consider the weight of the occupants in the bed of the truck. Several 2500 series trucks and most 3500 series trucks can handle the weight of a bed full of water, but always consult your manufacturer first.
Q: Why does my Pick-up Pool fit loose/tight around the edges?
A: Not all truck bed dimensions are exactly the same. We design our pools using an average length, width, and height for truck beds on the market. This means that Pick-up Pools will either fit perfect, loose, or a little snug depending on you make/model/year truck. For snug fits, the material should gradually stretch in direct sunlight.
Q: Why is my pool leaking near the drain?
A: The drain plug cover is not fully attached or the pool may be on inside out and water pressure is pushing the drain cap open from the inside. Ensure that the drain cap is accessible from inside the truck bed. Otherwise the pool is inside out.
Q: Can I use a Pick-up Pool if have a toolbox attached to the bed of my truck?
A: It is possible but we don't recommend this. It just looks funky.
Q: Can I use a Pick-up Pool if I have after market rails attached to the sidewalls of my truck bed?
A: Yes. The vinyl material should stretch over the rails, allowing the pool to hold itself in place.
Q: Can I use a Pick-up Pool if I have Dodge Ram with a Ram Box (toolbox)?
Q: Does it come in different colors?
A: Not yet, but we're working on it.
