I have always wanted a pool, but installing a pool is not in my current budget. Our yard is a decent size, but installing a full-size pool would remove most of the grass, which is not good news for my kids or our dog. So when I came across the new trend of storage pools, I was very excited. Storage pools are affordable, don’t take up much space and are perfect for cooling off on a hot summer day.
Storage tanks are intended to be used as irrigation places for livestock, but are certainly large enough to be used as a small pond. They cost about $400 or less to buy, and $90 to $120 more if you decide to install a pool pump – that’s a lot less than the tens of thousands of dollars a traditional pool would cost!
I like to see the creative ways people integrate storage ponds into their gardens. Some choose to leave them raw, while others paint the outside in fun colors. Others build covers around the pool, and some even install them as a subway pool. There are so many ways to have a storage pool!
Of course, there is nothing wrong with blowing up above-ground plastic pools. But they’re known for their holes and leaks, and they’re not as fancy as these storage pools.
