Summer is now in full swing, which means that Americans everywhere are looking for ways to escape the heat. Now, a new summer craze has swept the nation that is sure to have you braving the heat like never before.

Stock tanks have typically been used as farm troughs in the past, but now they are being used as swimming pools!

Everyone would love having a swimming pool in their backyards, but setting them up can be costly, as they can cost upwards of $3,000. That’s why many people are choosing to instead set up stock tank swimming pools, which are far more affordable. In fact, Tractor Supply Co. offers an 8-by-2-by-8-foot stock tank for just $300!

On top of being affordable, stock tank swimming pools are also easy to manage. All you need to do is find a flat space to put them on! Once you have done this, simply seal off the stock tank and it will be ready to be filled.

Stock tanks are so small that it isn’t hard to drain them after you use it each time. If you’d rather not do that, you can also use a filter to keep the water clean.

There are tons of different ways that you can dress up your stock tanks to make them look cuter. To keep the water cool, you can even put an umbrella over it!

Stock Tank Pools are this summer’s hottest ‘must have’ if you do not have a pool in your backyard. ? They are the perfect size to enjoy a nice dunk to cool off, or relax with a drink?? in hand and a great read? in another! Yet, not too deep for the little ones, and most definitely entertaining! . . I love the way @chippyvintagehippie has made her backyard feel like a small oasis, with the umbrella & string lights, both adding a great touch! . . .
