It looks like the one in the picture is filled with pond liner plastic or something similar. You could always slip pool noodles over the edges... Now who's going to make a wood-fired redneck hot tub out of a skip? Yes I'm allowed to say "skip", the one in the picture is clearly in England :P

It's only temporary, and yes steel hurts the head - but permanent swimming pools aren't soft either. L

If you want a larger pool. some shipping containers are topless. 8 feet wide, 8 ft deep, and 40 feet long is a great lap pool.
