Stock tanks are standard farm fixtures. They are made from galvanized metal or plastic. They are round, oval-shaped or square and are traditionally recommended to be used to hold water and feed for livestock. This is why you are looking at a website that sells livestock equipment to farmers to purchase your stock tank pool for the backyard or deck of your home. These tank pools are far sturdier than their cheap blow-up counterparts and way more affordable than an in-ground or even above-ground swimming pool.

For 100+ years, these stock tanks have been shipped in nests of 3 and will come with minor cosmetic imperfections due to their handling. This is consistent with the industry standard for decades.. no one, including the cows drinking from them, ever cared until a few years ago when they started being used as pools. 

Manufacturing, storing, handling, and shipping are very difficult and rough on surfaces. Usually, some polish and some cold galvanizing or aluminized paint will fix them quickly. A small ball peen hammer to remove a small dent or two will be needed to achieve that perfect look. However, we feel those imperfections are all part of the rustic charm.

These massive tanks hold well over 1000 gallons of water and have lots of room to splash around.
