You could use a plastic kiddy pool... super easy to tip the water out and refill.  I use one for my two muscovies :)

1 Dog, 2 Cats, 2 Muscovy ducks, 2 Chickens, 2 Stimson pythons, 1 SW carpet python, 5 Green tree frogs, 3 Rats, 2 Mice, 4 Tarantulas, 3 Scorpions, 27 Fish and 1 Very understanding boyfriend

We also fill a couple of the large rectangular bins you can get at Lowes / Home Depot / TSC.  I have two; one is 30"X20" and 10 inches deep and the other is a few inches larger in all directions; both are black plastic and are pretty durable.  Even our geese get into them and dunk their heads and throw the water over their back.  Very easy to maintain (dump and refill) and they simply hop up on the edge and then step into the water.
