What happens when you don’t actually have the space or money to build the pool you wish? An easy compromise is to make your own swimming pool using a livestock tank. You can use a simple stock tank as an above ground pool, or for a more permanent fixture, bury it in the ground or surround it with some decking.

If you’re looking to create something more permanent, keep in mind that the galvanized tank will eventually rust. So consider getting it coated inside and out with a pickup bed coating for waterproofing. The transformation attempts featured in these images should give you some great ideas.

A galvanized stock tank is perfect for afternoons of cooling off in the water or for your kids to have a small swim-around. Check out what has been done and replicate the DIY project in your own back yard…

How would you keep it clean?

You need to buy a pool pump and filter.

It would need a pump and filter to keep it clean, and that’s the most expensive part of any pool. If it was sunk into the ground with a shallow area of natural filter plants it could make a nice natural pool though.

Wouldn’t it have to be drained and refilled fairly often if there is no filtration system?
