    Could I use a Snapset pool instead?

    Can't find 'em ?

    Probably because there's too many "City Folks" raisin' DUCKS at home!

    I wouldn't think a Snapset pool would be a good Idea. Unless you plan on pumping that water through some kind of filter system you are going to want to dump the pool. You could always bail the water out but you would then have to wash it. That is way easier if you can flip it off and spray it with a hose. If you have the money to do it, you could put in one of those koi ponds witch have a filter system. Or you could just buy a pond filter for your snapset. Hope that was helpful

    I couldn't find kiddie pools - in June!!!!!!

    So I picked up a couple of nice sized concrete mixing pans. about 2'x3', and 10" deep. Perfect.

    Try the local hardware store. Around here they have things in storage for off season and I asked in September after all "summer" items were put away- sure enough they had a few down in the basement.
