Fellow Nashvillians and all around brilliant creatives over at Hey Wanderer recently published a great blog post and Youtube video about setting up their DIY stock tank pool. It's a solid in-depth read with some good tips on what to look out for when installing your own stock tank pool. They even get into the differences between pond pumps and pool pump filters. Our only other recommendation is to consider the Intex surface skimmer (plus pump filter) to help remove larger debris.
Here's the link to their DIY stock tank pool blog post. Their video is below. Enjoy!
