    I was always worried about filling the back of my pickup with water, I figure with all that water, plus the several druknen people that will end up in it, that the weight will be too great for the suspension. granted, I used to drive a compact truck, may not be as big of a problem with the big boys.

    Yeah my uncle did that a long time ago but he got pulled over because it was the year of this big drought. He still has chunks of caulking stuck to his tailgate.

    Well it's 1 metric tonne per cubic metre, and I reckon you'd get two in the back of a pick-up?

    Yes, Awesome idea! Altho, if you have a pickup truck, just throw a tarp in the back, then you got yourself a red neck swimming pool! oh yea..

    Another way of doing this, is a number of transport pallets to form the circle. Add as many as you like and according to the size of your tarp. Then tighten the whole thing up with a couple of transport straps on the outside. Would probably be an idea to loosely nail the pallets together first, then add the tarp , preferrably folded down on the outside and the straps on top of that to keep everything in place.

    Of course you could always use a plastic kiddie swimminp pool but thats no fun. Use those things for sliding down sled hills. My friends tried that once. Don't recommend it...

    nice dude, I like it. I use an 8' diameter pool I bought for ~$20. I have to lug it around to people's parties.

    pretty sweet idea me and my freinds did a simmerlar thing except we dug a big hole and put a tarp in it

    used to do that when we were kids. man that water gets funky in a few days LOL

    Great instructable. Me and my cousin did something simmilar when we were younger. Except we had a huge tarp like a 50 ft square, and a small backyard. So we would just attatch the tarp to the fence to keep it up on the sides, it would take forever to fill, but it was the best thing ever, while it was filling we would use it as a slip'n'slide.

    Cool... The very definition of DIY!

    if you load it up with couzins and your sister then its a redneck HOTTT TUB!!!! LOL
