Let’s face it… in-ground pools are expensive while most above-ground pools have a very temporary look about them.
That temporary look has a lot to do with the reality that the liners and supports are relatively light duty. What if there was a permanent solution to the above-ground option? There is and it uses upcycled, readily available materials. It places a whole new take on the term “Dumpster Diving”.
Clever people are using shipping containers, dumpsters and rubbish skips to create family pools at low cost. This is a great way to upcycle things that other people would normally just get rid of.
The best part about this is that you can actually take them with you if you move!
So why spend hundreds of dollars for a pool when you can have one for a very little price? Check out the photos in the gallery and see what we mean.

Been dreaming of a swimming pool in your backyard? This could be a great alternative rather than building an expensive in-ground pool.
