The kids danced around the blue lagoon as freezing water sloshed from the hose into the pristine plastic. It took several hours for the pool to fill to the top – 3, 463 gallons in all – but it wasn’t until the pool was completely full that we noticed the problem. Because of the slight slope in our yard,the pool was uneven.Unfortunately,the filter side of the pool happened to be the shallower side,so instead of sucking in water,the filter wheezed air,straining the motor and threatening to burn out.
There was only one viable solution: drain the pool and move it to a flatter spot.

Ultra frugal rainwater storage ideas2009-08-13 20:37:55 by AZ_Dude
We got 2 inches of rain in the past 3 days, my storage system was full after the first inch.
I added another 560 gallons today for $0.00 I just dug out an old kiddie pool and filled it from my tanks. An 8 foot diameter x 18 inch pool holds a bit over 560 gallons.
This time of year it should be fairly easy to find someone that wants to get rid of theirs or you can probably get one at Walmart etc. for $5 to $10.
There are some problems with open storage like this, mosquitoes being the biggest. I plan on dumping a goldfish in there as soon as I see some wigglers
