Has anyone tried this? Or have a better idea? Right now I'm using a small but sturdy plastic kids' pool for my 5 ducklings, but I can see that they'll be needing a larger one as they continue to grow. Each night I tip this pool over to empty/clean it. Because of its composition it doesn't rip or crack under this heavy use. But I know those larger plastic kiddy pools are made of thinner plastic that will eventually crack under this type of use. Not to mention the strain on my back & arms to lift the edge of this larger pool. So I'm thinking of cutting a drain hole, about 1-2" in diameter, in the side near the bottom, and covering it with one of those flat round rubber drain covers, the type you lay flat over the drain of your shower. If the water won't hold it in place I would glue one edge to the side of the pool with some sort of waterproof glue. Then I could just remove/hold open the flap and let the water drain out. Once the pool is empty it will be so much lighter and easier on me and the plastic to lift & hose out. I'm hoping this will help my big kiddy pool last much longer before it wears out. But I don't want to ruin it right from the start by cutting a drain hole in it that won't work. Let me know what you think of this idea, and especially if you have a better idea.
