Every summer the discussion starts... "Should we start thinking about trying to make a pool? How expensive are those dumpster ones? Let's just make a stock tank pool! But wait, we really should get a filter for it, and maybe a liner... yet another project.
Oh wait, it's mainly Silas who we want to be able to play in the water. And he really just wants to splash around and cool off. Great, let's just get a blow-up pool––but are there any that aren't totally hideous?"
Since Silas is still small we prefer the smallest pools since it's so much easier to just dump them out at the end of the day and refill tomorrow (it feels a little wasteful and time-consuming to do that every day with the bigger ones, but some people may need more space). Anyhow, we love the simplicity of quickly filling this up and letting him splash around as much as he wants, all while not taking up a lot of room :)
