New Trend: Cattle Trough Pools

Summer on PEI is likely to be much different than most summers.  While restrictions begin to ease there’s still a good chance you’ll be spending a little more time at home than usual.  So what do you do if you’re looking a cool and easy way to enjoy the outdoors from the comfort of your own yard?  The answer… is Cattle Trough Pools or “Hillbilly Hottubs” if you will.

Dubbed as a cheaper alternative to in-ground pools and nicer looking than above ground pools, the idea has taken over Instagram.  People are buyingg galvanized steel stock tanks, filling them with water and making them the focal of their backyard motif.  These “Hillbilly Hottubs” as they are affectionately called by some are said to cost a little more than an above ground pool but are more durable and require less maintenance.

Seems to me like an idea that Islanders can spend all summer perfecting!  Take a look at some more examples below!
