23 How to Make a Pool from a Stock Tank

In this article we are going to talk about how to use a stock tank for your pool rather than a standard pool pump. With a stock tank you will be able to save hundreds of dollars in cost to run your pool!

The first step in using a stock tank is to buy a pre-built system that will handle your swimming pool. I would suggest that you purchase an HVAC system that will run under the water line so that you don’t have to worry about the piping.

After you get the pre-built system, you need to start building the pump and filter. This is the easy part, because you just need to drill the holes for the water supply lines to get into your pool and the installation is a matter of hooking everything up and plugging it in.

The two main components that will need to be checked regularly are the pressure regulator and the pump itself. In order to check these components you will need to open the tank to find a gauge that is on top of the pump and then you will want to put your pressure gauge in it and take the reading.

Once you get a new pressure gauge put in the tank, you will then be able to read the water pressure from there. It doesn’t take long to read the pressure gauge so you should always keep an eye on it and check the pressure at least once a month.

If you didn’t already know you need to change the water at least once a week. This is the easiest way to make sure you aren’t wasting water and it’s important to make sure that you get all of the dissolved minerals out of the water that you drink.

You also need to drain your filter on a regular basis. This will help make sure that the chlorine doesn’t build up and is a good step in keeping your pool free of bacteria.

Going back to our case today, we are going to use the HVAC to build a water pump and filter. While it’s not a great idea to keep this as a secondary device to the main pool pump, it can be used if you need to use the pool right away after the HVAC is installed.
