Don’t have $15,000 to install a pool (or can’t get a permit)? Don’t worry. Just pick one up from Costco. Don’t have $4k for a stiff-sided above-ground? No problem! There’s always Wal-Mart. But say you don’t even want to spend $350. Or maybe you’re just wandering through Toys ‘R Us thinking, “It’s pretty hot out. That kiddie pool looks pretty inviting.” Bam! You get what you see above: Aaprime example of what we call good ‘ol down-home Southern engineering.
A reader sent in the photo above, and we cropped it to protect the innocent (and refreshed). It’s not exactly a page out of Architectural Digest, but credit where credit’s due: It appears to be holding water.
Of course, it’s gonna be a mosquito hatchery in a week or so, assuming it doesn’t collapse by then.
Anyway, happy Friday. Enjoy your weekend, however you choose to spend it.
