'Tis the season for swimming as often as possible. Whether it means jumping into the nearest pond or practicing our backstrokes at the community pool, we're all united in our quest to find a nice body of water to cool off in over the summer.

But fret not my overheated friends, there's hope to be had. The web is filled with affordable and transportable pint-sized pools that can instantly transform even the smallest sliver of lawn space into a bona fide backyard oasis. Don't believe us? We rounded up the best portable pools for every size backyard (and budget) to prove our point. From an inflatable bathtub to a mini-above-ground pool, here are eight portable (and Prime-eligible) swimming pools on Amazon that probably cost less than a new window A/C unit.
