A $99 stock tank pool for your backyard. We'll stop there.
This little guy is small, but joyful. It's small size allows you to tuck it darn near anywhere. Between a few trees, in a back corner, or even amongst the flower pots on your deck. At 100 gallons, it can be filled in as little as 15 minutes, then drained before bedtime. To keep the fun going all summer, just add the pump and pool treatment kit for $100 (see step 2)!

Step 1: The stock tank
NEVER LEAVE CHILDREN UNATTENDED IN A POOL. Pools present a drowning risk, no matter their size or depth. Children should never be left unattended in a pool, whether stock tanks or not. Even though a stock tank is 2' shallow it still presents a drowning and safety hazard. Children and adults can drown in as little 6" of water. It is up to you evaluate whether a pool, stock tank or not, is safe for you and your family. And just for good measure, we'll say it again NEVER LEAVE CHILDREN UNATTENDED IN A POOL.
