Shipping Container Pools are Here to Save Your Summer

Don't have the time, money or space to dig a giant hole in your backyard and fill it with concrete and water? Well, some crafty devils have discovered the perfect solution!

Cheap, portable and cute - shipping containers fit the all the needs of modern buyers and renters.

Now, a Queensland pool manufacturer has found a whole new use for shipping containers, adding yet another dimension to their already broad functionality.

This quirky solution to the summer heat adds a better-looking twist to a typical above-ground pools, and is the ultimate upcycling innovation.

The Shipping Container Pools product includes a fibreglass inlay, steps, a tiny wooden pool deck and an in-built filtration system.

The best part, is that it can be moved to your new address with you if you ever move home!

While an in-ground pool can cost on average $50,000 to install, a shipping container pool will set you back $20,000 with maintenance costs also significantly less than the more elaborate counterparts.

Its also a solution for those who rent a home with a decent sized backyard and long for a pool to dip into in the summer. 

You could even get a few pals together to invest in one of these beauties!
