Last year I finally got around to filling up this galvanized stock tank pool, and it may have been one of the best things I did all summer.
The water is always cool and the tank is deep enough for the water to reach our shoulders and long enough that we can both sit in it, or I can just float if I want to. I always want to. I love nothing better than jumping in after yard work and then drying off in the warm hammock.
We originally set it in the sun and the tank itself was too hot to touch after a day in the sun and the water felt like bath water. Not the refreshing dip I’d envisioned. We moved it to the courtyard and found the perfect place between the pines against our neighbor’s garage.
We decided to keep it simple and not add a pool filter or chlorine so we can hook up a hose to the spout to water the Oak Leaf Hydrangea and trees in our courtyard.
