NANFA-- Cheap outdoor tubs
Sat, 5 Jan 2002 11:49:03 -0600 (EST)

I've found some cheap outdoor tubs - concrete mixing tubs from Home Depot.
A 2'x3'x8" (16 gallon) is about $11 and 18"x28"x6" is $5. They are shallow
but they can't be beat for price.

The good thing about these tubs is that they have a sturdy rim which
should keep them stable when filled with water.

I am thinking of setting up a stand where the little tub overhangs the
big tub. And, setup a pump in the lower tub to pump water into the upper
tub, run through lava rock, maybe some plants like pothos/spath and then
trickle down into the lower pond. A home-made hydrophonic system and a
great small pond for a patio.
