    It's actually a 40 gal tub I got last year. It was a pain to dump when we had it buried for them to easily get in.

    Never found any kiddie pools around here so I bought a outside water faucet and hooked them up. I drilled some holes just enough so I could get it to thread, silconed, let it dry and tested it. It drains great and easy to dump the rest out..YEAH!!
    Today I dug out enough to sink it to the bottom of the faucet. Stuck some bricks around it and used their old rubbermaid as a step. My friend had wooded pallets that I was gonna use to build a deck around it but someone threw them out:-( It's ok this will work for now. I've got more bricks under my house that I'll get out later...I'm been working outside since 8 am and pooped.

    The girls hadn't noticed it yet. They were too busy napping under the bushes.

    Here's the boy rooting around like a bunch of piggys and already got the water muddy. They really seem to like after that 1st jump in and their feet didn't hit the scared them.

    My drain.....

    Great idea! I think I'm gonna "borrow" it too! I have brick steps next to kiddie pool for my little ducks,, but only one is bright enough to use them and I hate sinking it because of trying to change it.
