Stock Tank Pools Are The Affordable Way To Cool Off This Summer
A few years back, my husband and I got a company to come and give us a quote for an in-ground pool. When they revealed the price, I was astonished. We quickly decided that nope – the in-ground pool could definitely wait! But I must admit, those hot summer days really have me yearning for a pool. If you don’t have the budget or the space for a regular pool, I have some good news for you. People are making small swimming pools out of stock tanks, and they’re as aesthetically pleasing as they are affordable!
Having an in-ground swimming pool put in can easily cost $80,000 to $100,000 or more – yikes! Our friend the stock tank, however, costs between $200 to $500.
Some people choose to install their stock tank like an in-ground pool, while others leave them above ground, or incorporate them into a deck. There are so many options!
You can even install a filter and pump to your stock tank pool to keep the water moving, clean, and fresh.
Don’t like the metal look? Paint the outside of your stock tank whatever color or pattern you’d like!
I don’t know about you, but these photos have me loving the idea of a stock tank pool! Even if it’s just temporary, a stock tank pool is a great and affordable way to cool off this summer. I think I’ll be spending this week checking out livestock stores to see if we can get our hands on one. Happy floating!
