12 DIY Stock Tank Pools to Copycat

DIY Stock Tank Pools to Copycat |

Featured ‘grams by @heresthekeys and @arrowsandawe. Thanks gals!

We are all for living your best life in a pool in your backyard, but if you can’t swing the hefty price or if you don’t have the space, a DIY stock tank pool is an amazing alternative. We’re not talking about plastic blow-up pools – stock tanks (yes, those huge metal containers that help hydrate horses and cows on farms) can easily be transformed into beautiful, chlorinated pools.

Those in the know have really gotten clever in the designs of their DIY stock tank pools, painting them in vibrant colors and even building decks around them. Need proof? Check out our favorites below we’ve rounded up on Instagram. Psst – they’ve all been featured on @StockTankPool. Speaking of, when you’re ready to get your own, Stock Tank Pool Authority offers various sizes. You may also be able to find one at your local Tractor Supply Co. Just be sure to call first as they are picking up in popularity!

1. Tropical Flavor Via @StockTankPool

This is our favorite DIY stock tank pool the gals at Stock Tank Pool Authority have done. If you’re in Texas or Nashville, they deliver. And for an extra $$, they’ll even set it up for you, or you can purchase their DIY Stock Tank Pool Guide!

2. Cool Patterns Via @HeresTheKeys

The chairs, the cushions, the swimsuit! We’re looooving the black and white color combo and mix of patterns.

11. Summer Shade Via @WereTheJoneses

Consider also DIYing a covered deck for some extra shade while you float!

12. Tiny Tank Via @StockTankPool

Turn a tiny tank into a little oasis built for one or two! You can buy this mud cloth stencil on Stock Tank Authority’s website. They perfected the hot tub version too!

You’ll probably need to dry off when you’re out of the pool. Check out these Cute Beach Towels from Nordstrom!
