Most people would love to have their own pool, even if only to cool off during the hot summer months. The problem is that many cannot afford their own full-size pool. And even if you get a small pool, it requires upkeep and usually needs to be stored during the winter. One solution is to use a horse trough, which is also known as a livestock tank. They're easy to find, cheap, will stay around for years, and have multiple uses if you decide to no longer use them as pools.
Prepare a level area for your horse trough (livestock tank) to sit.
Place the horse trough on the newly leveled area.
Ensure that the drain plug at the base of the trough is screwed in tightly.
Use the water hose to fill the trough with water until it is approximately six inches from the top of the trough.
