Stock Tank Swimming Pools Are Dominating the Summer

There's nothing like jumping into a pool to cool off on a hot summer day. While home swimming pools come in a range of designs and sizes (some can even cost more than $20,000), there's one particular type that's currently trending on Pinterest—stock tank pools.

The stock tank pool, which is shaped like a tub and typically made of galvanized metal or plastic, draws inspiration from the country lifestyle. They're fairly compact and affordable, with most designs retailing for under $500. Just keep in mind that you'll likely need a pool net to keep bugs at bay and a pump to make filling it up a breeze. Plus, you'll have to be mindful of rust if you choose a tin design. Luckily, you can easily purchase rust-proof products to protect the pool.

If you're ready to give a stock tank pool a try, see some of our favorites on Pinterest right now. Any one of these trendy pools would be perfect for enjoying the remaining days of summer.
