Man Converts Dumpster into Deluxe Backyard Pool Video : TreeHugger

TreeHugger stole our hearts this morning with this article on a dumpster-to-pool conversion. Now if it was a dumpster-to-hot tub conversion we would already be in it by now.

To create his dumpster pool, Beese cleaned and coated the steel container with anti-corrosive paint, placing it into a shallow hole dug into his backyard, which had a layer of limestone to protect the soil underneath the pool. The container was then lined with half-inch high-density insulation foam and a flexible pool liner for padding. Pine slats hide the dumpsters metal exterior.

The indented part of the 5-foot tall dumpster is hidden with a built-in shelf that swimmers can sit on, so there’s no need for a ladder.
