Step 1: Choose your tank size and location to set it
This spot is right off our patio and it used to be a fish pond waterfall feature. The plastic in ground tub went by the wayside a couple of years ago so we pulled that out of the ground, tossed it in the dumpster and filled in the hole. Now we have a perfect spot for our pool. Lots of cleaning and prepping to do though.
We have two tanks that are 6' x 2', one round and one oblong with a spout. I couldn't find one with a spout to link for you online, but if you click over to our blog you will see a really cool alternative that I've found. CLICK HERE.
Both of our tanks are used, so we had a bit of restoration to do before we could attempt to fill them with water. Our patch job won't last forever and we will probably have to fork over lots of money to replace one or both tanks some day. But today, we have a spot to cool off in the Texas heat! My advice is, buy new if you can.
