Every summer, we have this urge to be around water, cooling off or just relaxing near a water source. The reason is obvious: hot weather and dry ambiance. The solution is also clear: an outdoor swimming pool. 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 in the DIY project. The transformation attempt featured in these images is a successful one. The 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.
