A $10 plastic alberca from Sorianas, a sun lounge, garden hose and you have a water park (tobogane). I couldn't fit the larger pool in my van that cost $20 but this seem to work for the kids. It's not broken yet. Long summer to go
The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
