    depends on how long you want to use it. The kiddie pools aren’t deep, and the plastic tends to get brittle. At big box diy there are sturdier deeper pond forms.

    it is not a recommended practice ....the plastic is to thin

    The plastic in a kiddie pool is not thick. You would need to line the pool. If you are going to do that, plus add a water source and drainage to keep the water sweet, you may as well buy a pool made to be a pond.

    One thing that helps the pool last longer is to have a smooth, level base with no rocks at least three inches beneath the pool. Do not leave any of the plastic uncovered by soil, plants, rocks, or other matter.

    If you already have the kiddie pool and have ready the suggestions, then go ahead and build your pool. Please don’t put goldfish or koi or other large fish in the pool. If a leak or crack appears, the larger fish will die first if they can’t breathe through the water because the level is too low. ☺️
