While everyone else flocks to the beach this summer, some still prefer to stay at home and be comfy in their own makeshift pool. If I have a bigger space at home, I would setup a king size pool of our own. Besides being cost-effective, Iâ€™m confident that everybodyâ€™s safe from accidents as I can watch them especially the younger ones. Makeshift pools are good for non-swimmers too (in my opinion). And since we are swimming in the confines of our own backyard/front yard, no one will dictate what and what not to wear while wading in our shallow pool. As for the poolâ€™s color, itâ€™s difficult to decide. Should I buy gold bars-colored pool or the one with blue shade? Better ask the kids.
