Whatever object you use, you may want to coat it a time or two with a water-proof epoxy, and/or put a tarp in it.



You may also want to buy a pump/filter from Walmart, Academy Sports, etc.

These options may not be more practical or less expensive than traditional pools from the store…but if you or someone you know already has one of these items and some free time on your hands, you could be swimming in no time! 🙂
